Ty Dolla $ign and Mustard


Reservoir has hired Russell Hunt as Senior Creative Manager. He joins from Tigerspring. “I am incredibly excited to be working alongside Reservoir’s exceptional creative team and roster”, he says. “It’s an honour to be a part of such an ambitious and well-respected company, and I am determined to contribute to their ever-growing success”.



Ty Dolla $ign and Mustard have paired up again for new single ‘My Friends’, which also features Lil Durk. “Every time my brother Mustard and I link up, we make history; ‘Paranoid’, ‘Or Nah’ and now ‘My Friends’”, says Ty. “What’s success and fortune if you ain’t getting it with your day ones? Big shout out to Durk for being a part of this song”. The track will appear on a forthcoming collaborative album.

Fever Ray has released her first new single for five years, ‘What They Call Us’ – co-written and co-produced by her brother and the other half of her former duo The Knife, Olof Dreijer.

Bicep have released new single ‘Water’, featuring Clara La San. “There was no outright idea when we started, but the original ‘Waterfall’ was born out of experimentation with an instrument called the MEGAfm”, say the duo. “It’s a new synth but has chips inside which formed the sounds of the SEGA Megadrive/Genesis games consoles. Weirdly it got more computer game sounding when we developed it into ‘Water’, speeding up and slowing down the lead line and LFOs to give that classic low-bit sound effect”.

Sweet Baboo has released his first single for five years, ‘Good Luck’, written by H Hawkline. The track is taken from new album ‘The Wreckage’, which is out on 27 Jan. “I asked my friend H Hawkline to write me a song for the album as I thought it would be interesting to have another lyrical voice to contrast with mine”, he says. “Little did I know he was going to write the most radio-friendly song on the album”. He’ll also be touring the UK in February and March.

Girlpuppy has released new single ‘Teenage Dream’. “The song’s about a guy I lead on who looks like Keanu Reeves, and it’s the first one we made for the album”, she says. “The chorus lyrics to teenage dream don’t make much sense, but I do enjoy singing them. An important detail: I’m talking to my puppy Obi at the beginning, and you can hear him barking at the end”. Her album, ‘When I’m Alone’, is out on 28 Oct.



Måneskin will play a free show at The Underworld in London tonight. Tickets will be available from the venue’s box office from 6pm.
