Yungblud has released new single ‘Lowlife’. “I wrote ‘Lowlife’ because I just didn’t want to leave my house”, he says. “I was sick of people, of games, of myself, my friends, anytime I did anything some idiot had an opinion about it. What I should do or be. The truth is I didn’t want to be anything at all sometimes, I wanted to be nothing. So I just didn’t leave bed. I was dissatisfied and craving some sort of boredom. The type of boredom where you sit in your house, in the same sheets and watch fucking mind-numbing TV, so I wrote a song about it”.

PJ Harvey has released new single ‘I Inside The Old I Dying’, taken from upcoming album ‘I Inside The Old Year Dying’. “This delicate and beautiful song eluded us until the very last day in the studio”, she says. “Then John [Parish] reinvented the feel of the guitar pattern. As he was demonstrating it in the control room, Flood handed me a microphone and pressed record whilst I sat next to John trying to work out how to sing to it. The result somehow captures the ethereal and melancholic longing I was looking for”.

Romy of The xx will release her debut solo album ‘Mid Air’ on 8 Sep. Alongside the announcement comes new single ‘Loveher’.

Gaika is back with new single ‘Lady’, featuring Bbymutha. He’s also announced that he will release new album ‘Drift’ on 8 Sep – his first for Big Dada.

Dream Wife have released ‘Social Lubrication’, the title track of their new album, which is out tomorrow.

This Is The Kit have released new single ‘Stuck In A Room’, taken from the album ‘Careful Of Your Keepers’, which is out tomorrow. “It’s not so much about being stuck in a literal room – although I suppose it is a bit – but more about getting stuck in the imaginary restrictive rooms we create for ourselves”, says frontwoman Kate Stables.

Glasser will release new album ‘Crux’ on 6 Oct. Out now is new single ‘Vine’. She says of the track: “‘Vine’ was written a long time ago. It was like an attempt at making something where all the parts sound like they’re very separated. I was thinking like jazz, actually. It was about getting back to writing music after feeling a bit disconnected from the machinery around making it your profession”.

Martha Skye Murphy has released new single ‘Dogs’.
