The 1975


The 1975 have rescheduled their big Finsbury Park show that was supposed to take place in July this year to 10 Jul next year. Tickets for the original date can be transferred to the new date.



Tkay Maidza has signed to 4AD and released new single ‘Shook’. The track is taken from a new EP set for release later this summer. Her first album for the label will be out next year.



Another track from JME‘s offline-only album ‘Grime MC’ has disappointingly made it onto the internet. Here’s the collaboration with his brother Skepta, ‘Nang’.

Jon Hopkins has released a new 21 minute track titled ‘Singing Bowl (Ascension)’. It’s the first in a series of lockdown-inspired meditations, apparently. “Like so many people I felt pretty paralysed by this situation when it first unfolded”, he says. “But gradually I found I wanted to create something – to find peace and perspective through making music, as I have always done”. The full track is available on streaming services and you can listen to an excerpt here.

Slowthai has released new single ‘Enemy’,

Charli XCX has released the latest single from her lockdown album ‘How I’m Feeling Now’. Here’s ‘I Finally Understand’.

Kim Petras has released new single ‘Malibu’. The track, she says, “is a return to colour, the feeling of being in love, and the escapism pop that I love the most”.

Emilie Nicolas has announced that she will release new album ‘Let Her Breath’ on 5 Jun. “I think it’s an album that shows some new sides of me”, she says. “I hope it makes you want to dance, and at the same time provides moments of calm, warmth and reflection”. From the album, this is ‘If I Call’.

Babii has released new single ‘Beast+’, taken from the new expanded version of her ‘iii’ EP.



Yourcodenameis:milo have announced that they will play their first show together since 2007 in support of Newcastle venue The Cluny. Lockdown permitting, it will take place on 18 Sep at The Cluny.
