Tones And I


Universal Music’s Verve Label Group in the US has promoted Jamie Krents to President of Verve, Impulse! and Verve Forecast Records, while Dawn Olejar has been named Executive Vice President and General Manager of the group at large.

Warner Records in the US has hired Dalia Ganz as SVP Digital Marketing. She joins from Disney. “Dalia is a widely respected expert and bold innovator in the digital space who knows how to adapt in a constantly changing landscape and isn’t afraid to break the mould to try something new”, says Warner Records COO Tom Corson. “She’ll inject a fresh perspective into our marketing strategy and help us deliver unique, memorable campaigns that amplify our artists’ voices and resonate with fans”.



Tones And I has released new single ‘Charlie’. “[This] was a song that came out of nowhere, it was done in three hours and we wrote the bassline first”, she says. “It’s about missing my dog Charlie and other things. It’s a funky jam and I just wanted to have some fun with it”.

PinkPantheress has released new track ‘Picture In My Mind’.

Yeah Yeah Yeahs have released new single ‘Burning’. “If the world is on fire, I hope the most beloved stay protected and that we do all we can to protect what we cherish most in this life”, says Karen O. “’Burning’ is a song about that feeling, smoke signals for the soul. Begging to cool it down, just doing it the best we know how”. The band’s new album, ‘Cool It Down’, is out on 30 Sep.

Loyle Carner has released new single ‘Georgetown’, featuring John Agard and produced by Madlib. Says Carner: “John Agard’s poem ‘Half-caste’ had a heavy impact on me. To see someone who was older, that looked like me, sharing a reflection of a similar lived experience made me feel comfortable/proud to not fit in. It kinda gave me the permission to finally write explicitly about being mixed”.

Broken Bells have released another single, ‘Saturday’, from their upcoming new album ‘Into The Blue’, which is out on 7 Oct.

Little Dragon have announced that they will release new EP ‘Opening The Door’ on 16 Sep. Here’s new single ‘Frisco’, which they say is about “renewal, letting out your full potential and moving with the wave of change and life”.

Gold Panda has released a Daniel Avery remix of recent single ‘I’ve Felt Better (Than I Do Now)’. “It’s such an honour to have a remix by Dan”, says Gold Panda. “I’ve been lucky enough to work with him on a few tracks but its great to finally get an official Daniel Avery remix – and it’s a banger! – from a good friend and all round lovely person”.

Santigold has released new single ‘Shake’. Her new album, ‘Spirituals’, is out on 9 Sep. “‘Shake’ is one of those songs that was just floating around me for the taking”, she says. “What I mean is that there are some songs that basically write themselves, and all you have to do as the artist is be open enough to reach out and pull it in and say thank you”.

Alvvays have released new single ‘Easy On Your Own?’, from their upcoming third album ‘Blue Rev’, which is out on 7 Oct.

Eighteen years into their career – and with just over a week to go before the release of their new album ‘Gnosis’ – Russian Circles have finally got around to making their first music video. It’s for the LP’s title track and you can watch it here.



Rival Schools will play a reunion show at London’s Electric Ballroom on 8 Jul 2023. The band are set to reissue their 2001 ‘United By Fate’ album on 28 Oct. Announcing that earlier this week, they also released an acoustic version of album track ‘Holding Sand’.
