Tinie Tempah – now just going by Tinie – has released new single ‘Top Winners’, featuring Not3s. “I made this record with Not3s because it’s about a winner’s mindset and mentality”, he says. “Having that outlook has kept us focused – it’s the reason I am where I am, and the reason Not3s is where he is. It’s all about striving to achieve more and continue to do better for yourself”.

Thundercat has released new single ‘Fair Chance’, featuring Ty Dolla $ign and Lil B. “This song is about Mac [Miller]”, says the musician. “When he passed it shook the ground for the artist community. Ty’s a strong dude and when he heard the song he knew exactly what it should be. I was there when he recorded it. We talked about what it was, and he did what he felt was right to it, and I love what he did”.

The Pretenders have announced that they will release new album ‘Hate For Sale’ on 1 May. They’ve also released a new single, ‘The Buzz’. “I think we all know that love affairs can take on the characteristics of drug addiction”, says Chrissie Hynde. “‘The Buzz’ is about that. Not mine, of course – I’m never obsessive never obsessive never obsessive”.

The Cure’s Roger O’Donnell has released new single ‘The Haunt’, featuring Jennifer Pague. His new album, ‘Two Ravens’, is out on 24 Apr through 99X10 Records.

Speedy Wunderground has announced that the latest release in its singles series will be ‘Generation Game’ by The Lounge Society. “It’s always been a dream for all of us to record with [label boss] Dan Carey and release with Speedy”, say the band. “We love their ethos and all the music they’ve put out in the past, it’s a great scene”.
