The Weeknd


Tempo Music has acquired a “significant perrcentage” of the music rights of producer/songwriter trio Stefan ForrestMorten Ristorp and Morten Pilegaard.



If you like seeing Björk in trailers for things, then Merry flippin Christmas, because you can see her in the trailer for upcoming movie ‘The Northman’. If you like seeing her in actual films, you’ll have to wait until April. Happy Easter.



The Weeknd has marked the tenth anniversary of the release of his third mixtape, ‘Echoes Of Silence’, by releasing a new video for its title track.

The Weeknd, yeah? Well, he features on new FKA Twigs single ‘Tears In The Club’. How about that, huh? “I’m always pushing to level up to MY best self, and I’ve pushed so hard to find my capri sun”, says Twigs. “I’m so proud of this music”.

Mary J Blige has released new single ‘Amazing’, featuring DJ Khaled. Her new album, ‘Good Morning Gorgeous’, is set for release on 11 Feb.

Saint Jhn has released new single ‘The Best Part Of Life’. He’ll be over here in the UK and Ireland for tour dates early next year. Maybe. All tour dates having an air of uncertainty about them again.

Speaking on tenth anniversaries – as we were – a short while ago, M83 has released a new video for ‘My Tears Are Becoming A Sea’ from his ‘Hurry Up, We’re Dreaming’ album, which came out ten years ago. There’s a new vinyl edition coming out in April, by the way.

LVRA has released a new Effy remix of her track ‘In Your Blood’. “LVRA’s voice is unreal so remixing this was so much fun”, says Effy. “I wanted to give her vocals breathing room, so just added a 4/4 and simple stabby bass to give it that techno edge. I’ve been playing this at shows and it goes off”.
