Agent Beckie Sugden has joined booking agency CAA. Says co-head of CAA London, Emma Banks: “We are THRILLED to have Beckie join our team and contribute her talents to the work we do for our artists. She has a proven track record for success in the representation business and, in just a couple of days, has become an integral part of the CAA team here in London”.



Daughter have released new single ‘Swim Back’. Their new album ‘Stereo Mind Game’ is out on 7 Apr.

Los Bitchos have released a new double A-side single, featuring covers of ‘Tequila’ by The Cramps and ‘Trapdoor’ by King Gizzard And The Lizard Wizard. “We love King Gizzard and ‘Trapdoor’ was a song of theirs that stood out for a cover choice”, say the band. “It was that repetitive hook of ‘trapdoor, trapdoor, trapdoor’ that we found so compelling and trippy. ‘Tequila’ has been the joyfully unhinged ending to our set for the past year. It always feels like it could fall apart at any moment and we wanted to capture that energy on the recording”. Los Bitchos are currently touring Europe with King Gizzard and will play two London shows next month at Alexandra Palace on 22 Mar and Troxy on 23 Mar.

Heather Woods Broderick has released new single ‘Admiration’. The song, she explains, was written amid the 2020 wildfires in Oregon. She says: “I was scared and missing my partner, not knowing whether I should evacuate or which road I’d have the best chance to get out on. Amidst my fear and feelings of helplessness amplifying the current state of the world, I was also remembering what I have to be grateful for – trying to use fear and uncertainty as a vehicle for hope”. Her new album ‘Labyrinth’ is set for release on 7 Apr.

Svalbard have released new single ‘Eternal Spirits’. The band’s Serena Cherry says of the song: “’Eternal Spirits’ is one of the most tragic songs we have ever written, yet it is also a celebration of legacy and musical heritage. It is a song about late metal musicians who sadly passed away too soon and the loss we feel within the metal community without their presence”.



Wu-Tang Clan and Nas have announced a co-headline tour, set to hit the UK and Ireland in June. They will play Dublin’s 3Arena on 9 Jun, Glasgow’s Hydro on 12 Jun and The O2 in London on 13 Jun. Tickets go on general sale on Friday.

Animals As Leaders have announced UK tour dates in November, including a show at the Kentish Town Forum in London on 2 Nov. The dates are rescheduled from January, with original tickets still valid.

Beverley Knight has announced that she will play a show to mark her 50th birthday at Lafayette in London on 23 Mar. “I have completed my 50th year around the sun and I am in the mood to celebrate”, she says. ”I am so grateful to be here, still singing and performing to both music and theatre audiences everywhere. Thank you for the love and support you have shown me. So damn excited about this special show!” Tickets will go on sale on Friday.
