Talent management outfit YMU Group has appointed Mary Bekhait as its first UK CEO. Promoted from Managing Director of YMU’s entertainment division, she will now oversee all five of the company’s units in the UK. “Mary’s ability to align business with emotional intelligence is an inspiring and energising combination”, says overall CEO Neil Rodford.


Carly Rae Jepsen has released the video for ‘Want You In My Room’, from her ‘Dedicated’ album.

CupcakKe has released new single ‘Grilling Niggas’.

Soccer Mommy has released new single ‘Lucy’. “It’s a song about struggling with inner demons and your own morality, but I masked it with this scenario of being seduced by the devil”, she says. “I’m really excited to share this with everyone because I think it shows a different side of my writing”.

Will Joseph Cook has released new single ‘The Dragon’. “The song is about striving to stay positive and loving”, he says. “Whilst living in the shadow of several huge global problems like the climate and political unrest. Turning on each other distracts us from finding the real solutions”.

Serafina Steer has released the title track to her new album ‘The Mind Is A Trap’, which is out on 27 Sep. She will play a launch show at Folklore in London on 2 Oct.



Pitchfork has announced a new edition of its music festival in Berlin in partnership with German promoter MCT Agentur. The event will take place at Tempodrom from 8-9 May 2020.
