Sky Ferreira


Noga Erez has signed a new deal with Warner/Atlantic’s Neon Gold Records, following two albums with indie label City Slang. “I’m super excited to begin to work with the people of Atlantic/Neon Gold”, she says. “This partnership is a big step for me. We’ve already started to get the ball rolling creatively and we have some big plans ahead of us”. She’s not joking, here’s new single ‘Nails’.



The UK’s Featured Artists Coalition has appointed Genneah Turner as its new General Manager. Noting her past work in artist management, she says: “It has been my greatest pleasure to have been trusted in the role of artist manager, helping recording artists navigate the business of music in a way that centred their autonomy, and created the best foundation from which they could create and share their art. I’m THRILLED to be joining the FAC where I can turn that micro focus outwards to support recording artists as a whole and build on the great work that the FAC’s founding artists started and more recently that [CEO] David Martin has built on across the organisation”.



Sky Ferreira has released her first new single for more than three years, ‘Don’t Forget’. Her second album might actually be on the way. Please.

Ed Sheeran is still knocking out remixes of ‘2Step’. The thirteenth features brilliant Irish rapper Denise Chaila.

Mura Masa will release his third album, ‘Demon Time’, on 16 Sep. Here’s new single ‘Blessing Me’, featuring Skillibeng and Pa Salieu.

Hercules & Love Affair and Anohni have teamed up for new single ‘One’. New Hercules & Love Affair album ‘In Amber’ is out on 17 Jun.

Cassyette has released new single ‘Sad Girl Summer’. “It’s a ‘fuck you’ song and I want people to feel empowered by it”, she says. “Anyone that’s ever been cheated on will understand that hurt. It’s a proper rager in the chorus”.

Galya Bisengalieva has released ‘Should I Panic About Dying?’, taken from her soundtrack to Netflix documentary ‘Hold Your Breath: The Ice Dive’, which will be out in full on 22 Jul.

Pulled Apart By Horses have released new single ‘Rinse & Repeat’. It’s “an ode to all that have found themselves trapped in the darker corners of the music industry”, says vocalist Tom Hudson. “The realisation that they need you more than you need them. Inspired by seeing Ziggy Stardust stood in line at the job centre. More punk rock than Iggy advertising life insurance”.

Attawalpa has released new single ‘Too Much’. “Lyrically ‘Too Much’ is about meeting ‘the one’, but you’re not quite evolved yet”, he says. “Generally speaking men always take longer at everything emotional. I feel I am part of a disillusioned generation who knows true love is possible if it doesn’t get lost in translation”.

Efé has released new single ‘Lime’, taken from a new EP out in July. “’Lime’ is about people that try to convince you that you need them in order to be great, to succeed”, she says. “I guess it is a song that pays homage to knowing your own self worth and knowing that you don’t need someone and you can be in charge of your own faith”.

Gag Salon are back with an important public service message with new single ‘Don’t Eat Stuff Off The Pavement’. While it’s “generally pretty good advice”, admits vocalist Joseph Mumford, the title “bears no relation to the song itself though. It’s a sad song about nostalgia and living vicariously. Can’t take anything too seriously though, so I had to give it a stupid title”.



Girl In Red has announced a one-off show at London’s Brixton Academy on 3 Apr 2023. This follows the recent postponement of UK and mainland European tour dates after the discovery of “nodular damage” on one of her vocal cords. Tickets for the new show go on sale tomorrow.

Lightning Bolt have announced UK and Ireland tour dates in August, kicking off at The Scala in London on 11 Aug and rounding things off with a performance at the ArcTanGent festival.
