Mentoring network The Cat’s Mother has partnered with collecting society PPL to host a series of events to support young women entering the music industry. “By connecting talented, aspiring women with some of the most experienced female executives in music, The Cat’s Mother offers a unique opportunity to those that may otherwise struggle, through no fault of their own, to start and sustain a career in our industry”, says PPL’s Kate Reilly.



Taylor Swift has premiered new concert film ‘Folklore: The Long Pond Studio Sessions’ on Disney+. Performing her ‘Folklore’ album in full with collaborators Aaron Dessner, Jack Antonoff and Justin Vernon, it sees them play the songs together for the first time – them having created the record remotely during lockdown.

Arlo Parks has released new single ‘Caroline’. It’s “an exercise in people watching and seeing situations unfold without context”, she says. “It’s an exploration of how something once full of healthy passion can dissolve in an instant”.

Within Temptation have released new singe ‘The Purge’. It “revolves around self-reflection and a search for redemption”, says frontwoman Sharon den Adel. “To confess, to acknowledge, and to accept [your] mistakes can be a very painful process and unescapable when the burden becomes too heavy”.

Matt Sweeney and Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy have released new single ‘Make Worry For Me’.

Daniel Knox has announced that he will release new album ‘Won’t You Take Me With You’ on 15 Jan. From it, this is ‘Fall Apart’.

Karima Francis has released new single ‘Carelessness Causes Fire’. “The song is about working through past traumas and how this has affected my life and confidence as an artist to date”, she says. “It also has a global message… When the pressure is too much an explosive eruption can happen, which can be dangerous and destructive”.

Stevan has released new single ‘More Than Them’. His new mixtape ‘Ontogeny’ is also out now.
