• Channel 4 will set up a new HQ in Leeds, part of a bid to have the state-owned broadcaster do more of its broadcasting gubbins outside of London. It’ll still have a base in the capital though. Plus two lovely new creative hubs in Bristol and Glasgow. And who doesn’t love a creative hub? Well done Bristol and Glasgow. And Leeds, of course.

• Slipknot have released their first new song for four years, ‘All Out Life’. Says frontman Corey Taylor: “‘All Out Life’ is a song that is trying to do two things: bring everyone together, but also remind everyone that the past is not something to be discarded with disdain … ‘All Out Life’ is the anthem that reminds people that it’s not the date on the music – it’s the staying power”.
