Spotify‘s new fundraising button on artist profile pages is now live. Artists can now direct fans to fundraising for a charity of their choice, themselves, their crew or something else. More info here.

Foo Fighters‘ Dave Grohl and Taylor Hawkins will now appear on the BBC’s all-star cover of the band’s ‘Times Like These’, which is set to be premiered across BBC Radio at midday today. Does that stop it being a cover now? Either way, the track will be sold in aid of Children In Need, Comic Relief and the WHO’s COVID-19-Solidarity Response Fund.



Kobalt has promoted Chris Lakey to SVP Creative Sync. He was previously VP Creative Sync. Presumably his first task in this new role will be making that small adjustment to his business cards in Biro. Seems like a waste to print a whole new batch. “I am more than excited about this new challenge”, says Lakey. He may or may not have been talking about the challenge of amending his business cards.
