Sony Music Publishing has announced a new worldwide deal with the estate of Muddy Waters to administer the full catalogue of the late blues musician. “Muddy Waters was without a doubt one of the most impactful songwriters in modern music”, says SMP CEO Jon Platt. “His vibrant, expressive sound is embodied in music today and continues to inspire generations. We look forward to working with the Muddy Waters estate to build upon its enduring songwriting legacy”.



See Tickets Group has promoted Boris Patronoff to COO. He will remain CEO of the company’s North American business. Meanwhile, Marijke Van den Bosch has been upped to CEO of Benelux and Germany, and Adriana García-Abril Ruiz becomes MD of Iberia. The company also has a new hire, in the form of Laurent de Cerner, as CEO for France.

Warner Chappell Music Nordics has promoted Petter Walther Walthinsen to Head Of A&R. “I couldn’t be prouder to take on this wider role as Head Of A&R for the Nordics”, he says. “Our region has such a rich and diverse pool of amazing songwriters who can make a real impact on the global stage, and I hope in this new position I can help propel the next stars to international success”.



Una Healy has released new single ‘This Is Your Life’. “I originally started writing ‘This Is Your Life’ nearly 25 years ago when I was a teenager, when I was just beginning my career as a singer-songwriter”, she says. “I went back to it many times over the years, but was never able to finish it until recently. I realise now that I never had the life experience or perspective to get to the heart of the song until now”.

Avawaves have released ‘Surf High’, taken from their soundtrack to upcoming documentary ‘Savage Waters’. The full album is out on 11 Nov.

Rozi Plain has released new single ‘Prove Your Good’, taken from her fifth album ‘Prize’, which is out on 13 Jan. “’Prove Your Good’ is thinking about the often silent fight within us”, she says. “Trying to come good, trying to not be bad. Feeling judged and judging ourselves. The small re-writing we can do of bits of our own history. The painful shift of changing favourites. Rearranging the leader board. Knowing things must be simpler but going after the tricky stuff anyway”. She and her band will also be touring the UK from January through to March.

Joan have released their first single of 2022, ‘Don’t Wanna Be Your Friend’.

Maja Lena has released new single ‘Clear As The Water’. “I was feeling very inspired by mountain-scapes when I wrote it, and the feelings of clarity and fresh perspective I often have when immersed in nature, especially in a vast and dramatic landscape where you can feel very small and insignificant yet very free”, she says. “I wanted the music to have a feeling of euphoria to mirror this and also be fun and uplifting”. Her new album, ‘Pluto’, is out on 2 Dec.

Mellow Rackz has released new single ‘Rich Bitch Party’.
