Kobalt’s AWAL has confirmed it will work with Iranian/Swedish singer songwriter Snoh Aalegra on the release of her new album ‘Ugh, Those Feels Again’.



Warner Music has launched a new website for its classical labels Warner Classics and Erato. The major says the revamp acknowledges that even classical fans are now into that new fangled streaming nonsense. What a time to be alive!



HMV’s new owner Doug Putman will keynote at the Annual General Meeting of the UK Entertainment Retailers Association on 18 Sep. Lesley Johnson from BBC Studios, Samantha Ebelthite from Electronic Arts and Annabella Coldrick from the Music Managers Forum will also speak.



Charli XCX has posted the video for her collaboration with Christine And The Queens. The track is ‘Gone’ and it will appear on the former’s new album ‘Charli’ when it arrives in September.

Four Tet has put a new track online called ‘Dreamer’.

Janet Jackson is reissuing five more of her old albums on vinyl. The reissue bonanza will cover: ‘Control: The Remixes’, ‘Rhythm Nation 1814’, ‘Janet.’, ‘The Velvet Rope’ and ‘All For You’.

Parlophone is releasing 2001’s ‘The Best Of Morrissey‘ album on vinyl next month. Imagine working on that release. I trust the whole Parlophone marketing team has been provided with an A-Z of stock responses for each and every racist thing Moz might say during the promo cycle for this record.



The Warehouse Project has confirmed full line-ups for most of the shows it is staging at the new Depot site in central Manchester between September and November this year. They include Apex Twin, Disclosure, Eats Everything, Diplo, Roisin Murphy, Chase & Status, Louie Vega, David Morales, Joy Orbison, Skrillex, Annie Mac and Skepta. Full details here.
