Michael Jackson

Other notable announcements and developments today…

• Jamie Diamond has been named Director Of Communications for Universal Music Publishing Group globally. “I’m appreciative”, says Diamond.

• The Gotta Have Rock And Roll auction has responded to the question as to why an album of unreleased Michael Jackson songs was withdrawn from sale. A spokesperson told CMU: “It was withdrawn on the request of the consignor who felt that it would be more respectful of Michael’s work to sell to privately, as it was garnering too much media attention. We honoured his wishes”.

• Nine Inch Nails will release a new EP, ‘Add Violence’, next week. From it, this is ‘Less Than’.

• Kesha has released another new song, ‘Woman’.

• Selena Gomez has released new single ‘Fetish’, featuring Gucci Mane. US Spotify users can watch a mobile phone optimised vertical video. What fun.
