Swedish House Mafia


Warner Chappell has promoted David Goldsen to Head Of A&R, Australia and Vice President, Creative. “This is an incredible opportunity to help local songwriters broaden their reach and collaborate with different artists, writers, and producers across borders and genres”, he says.



Swedish House Mafia have teamed up with Sting for new single ‘Redlight’, which sees the former Police frontman recreating the refrain from ‘Roxanne’.

Another light-based song for you now. Dave has released new single ‘Starlight’.

Red Hot Chili Peppers have released the second single from their upcoming new album, ‘Unlimited Love’. Continuing Anthony Kiedis’ weird vocal choices – after the apparent sea shanty influence on ‘Black Summer’ – on ‘Poster Child’ he seems to be channelling Ian Dury.

PC Music will release new compilation ‘Volume 3’ on 15 May – with contributions from AG Cook, Hannah Diamond, Charli XCX, Caroline Polachek and more. The label will also be putting on a night at Koko in London on 15 Jun.

Placebo have released new single ‘Happy Birthday In The Sky’. New album, ‘Never Let Me Go’, is out on 25 Mar.

Meshuggah have released new single ‘Light The Shortening Fuse’. The band’s new album, ‘Immutable’, is out on 1 Apr.

Dub War have announced that their first album for more than 25 years, ‘Westgate Under Fire’, will be out on 5 Aug. Here’s first single ‘Blackkk Man’.

Many Voices Speak has shared new single ‘Within Reach’. Her new album, ‘Gestures’, is out on 29 Apr.

Julia-Sophie has released new single ‘Dial Your Number’. “It’s about ending the ending, the last time you’re going to speak to someone you love”, she says. “You know, even though you don’t want something to end but you can’t see any other way out. I was trying to use that heavy, almost tribal drum beat to reflect that punch in the gut feeling”.



LCD Soundsystem have announced three 20th anniversary shows at Brixton Academy in London from 1-3 Jul. Tickets go on sale next Friday.
