Grammy nominated Rüfüs Du Sol have expanded their relationship with Kobalt so to include neighbouring rights on the recordings side as well as their song rights. “Being able to extend our relationship with Rüfüs Du Sol, whom we currently publish, to include neighbouring rights is an exciting opportunity”, says Kobalt’s Simon Moor.

Warner Chappell has signed Alesso to one of those worldwide publishing deals. The DJ/producer is “very excited” about it. Arvid Frisk, Head Of A&R at Warner Chappell Scandinavia, is “THRILLED”.



Lynne Best has announced that she is standing down from her Head Of Communications role at collecting society PPL to launch a new company called The Fourth Pillar that will be “dedicated to championing the rights of creators and the sustainable growth of the creative industries through communications, advocacy and policy”. Her initial focus in early 2021 will be on her homeland of Northern Ireland, with an initial client list including the Third Bar Belfast Artist Development venture co-founded by Davy Matchett and Snow Patrol’s Gary Lightbody.

Ms Banks has released new single ‘You Don’t Know’.

Drones have released new single ‘Epitaph’. It’s “the emo anthem of our new record”, says vocalist Lois McDougall. “The umbrella term ‘mental health’ is so widespread and complex that it can be hard to pin-point the exact problem that one person is experiencing. Personally, I’ve done a lot of exploring over the last few years to try and find out which wires are crossed for me and since writing this song I have finally found some appeasing answers”.



McFly have announced that they will play the O2 Arena on 21 Nov 2021. Tickets go on general sale on Friday.
