Round Hill has acquired publishing rights and recording royalties linked to 30 songs from producer / songwriter / guitarist Tim Palmer, which includes his work with Pearl Jam and Ozzy Osbourne.



St Vincent‘s new mockumentary ‘The Nowhere Inn’ is out this Friday, and ahead of it she’s released a song of the same name. The full soundtrack album is also out this week.

Jarvis Cocker has announced details of an album of French language cover versions that will accompany Wes Anderson’s film ‘The French Dispatch’. ‘Chansons D’Ennui Tip-Top’ will be released on 22 Oct. Here’s Cocker’s version of Christophe’s ‘Aline’.

Courtney Barnett has released the video for new single ‘Before You Gotta Go’, as well as a stem remixer thing. Her new album, ‘Things Take Time, Take Time’, is out on 12 Nov.



Rick Astley and Blossoms have teamed up to play two Smiths tribute shows next month. I mean, of course they have. They’ll play the Albert Hall in Manchester on 8 Oct and The Forum in London on 9 Oct. Tickets go on sale on Friday.

Clairo will tour the UK and Ireland in January next year, finishing up with a show at Brixton Academy in London on 23 Jan. For the dates, she has partnered with SafeTour and Calling All Crows to provide a safe and harassment free concert experience. “Now that shows are starting to come back into our everyday lives, it’s important to prioritise everyone’s experience to the fullest”, she says. “Everyone deserves a resource and everyone deserves to enjoy the show in peace. I want the audience to know that there is someone who will listen and believe them at every show”.
