Last week, Björk shared details of her upcoming performance at this year’s Coachella, revealing that her set will feature a local orchestra and span her three-decade discography. 

“We are so excited to bring björk orkestral to [Coachella], the singer wrote on Twitter (January 25). “We will bring on the stage a local orkestra and play arrangements from 30 years”. The announcement was accompanied by the dates Björk is due to perform at Coachella, which are slated across the festival’s two weekends on April 16 and April 23.

Spanning the singer’s 10-album catalogue, it will include songs from latest album ‘Forrossa’, which NME described as “heavier – and more hopeful – than anything before” in a four-star review. “​​There’s a lot of pleasure in the album,” Björk said of ‘Forrossa’ in an interview with NME last year. “It’s about enjoying that space.”

Björk’s orchestral set will mark her first appearance at Coachella since 2007 when she headlined the Californian event alongside Red Hot Chilli Peppers and Rage Against The Machine. For this year’s line-up, the singer is billed beneath Frank Ocean, who will headline Coachella 2023 with Bad Bunny and BLACKPINK.

Watch Madonna tease tour with NSFW game of ‘Truth Or Dare’

Later, when it’s Schumer’s turn to offer Madonna a dare, she says: “Madonna. I dare you to do a world tour and play your greatest mothafuckin’ hits.”

“Four decades? As in 40 years? We’re talking ‘Like a Virgin’?” asks Madonna before breaking into ‘La Isla Bonita’, which the rest of the table joins in with.

“Wait, hold up. That’s a lot of songs. You think people would come to that show?” Madonna asks. When the assembled stars all agree, she concludes, “OK, so the answer is … fuck yeah.”

Madonna then turns to the camera. “’80s. ’90s. 2000s. Four decades of music, avec moi. MLVC. Welcome to the party, bitches.”

Tong was the first dance music specialist to have received the honour, which has in previous years been won by the likes of Glastonbury Festival‘s Michael Eavis, The Beatles producer George Martin, Peter GabrielElton John, Simon Cowell and Kylie Minogue.

Back in 2013, Tong was awarded an MBE for his services to music and broadcasting.

The Cure release upgraded version of 1991 documentary ‘Play Out’

Released on October 7, the 30th anniversary collection includes the full original album, which has been remastered by frontman Robert Smith and Miles Showell at the legendary Abbey Road Studios.

It also boasts 24 previously-unreleased tracks – including demos, instrumentals and rare 12″ mixes – as well as four songs that will be coming to CD and digital platforms for the first time. The 3CD edition comes with four tracks from ‘Lost Wishes’, a 1993 mail-order only cassette, which have never been available on CD or streaming.

You can watch Play Out in full below. A synopsis reads: “Play Out follows the band as they perform new songs at a club gig, play Wembley Arena, appear on the Jonathan Ross show, rehearse for and perform their legendary MTV Unplugged show and receive the award for Best British Group at The Brit Awards.”

In terms of new music, The Cure kicked off their 2022 world tour in Latvia last month and debuted new tracks ‘Alone’ and ‘Endsong’.

The tracks were followed by further debuts including ‘And Nothing Is Forever’‘I Can Never Say Goodbye’ and ‘A Fragile Thing’ offering a sense of what to expect from forthcoming new album ‘Songs Of A Lost World’, which Smith said was “almost finished” back in May.

Advertisement

Speaking about what to expecting from the forthcoming new album, Smith told NME: “Essentially it’s a 12 track album. It’s there, it’s kind of half-mixed and half-finished. It’s a weird thing. It’s kind of evolved over the last two years. It hasn’t always been a good thing to have been left alone with it. You pick at it, like picking at seams, and everything falls apart.”

The Cure are currently on their UK and European tour – you can find remaining tour dates below and purchase remaining tickets here.

Watch Romy and Fred again.. give new collaboration ‘Strong’ its live debut

“My cousin Luis is in the music video with me. He was on my mind when I was writing this song, we both have the shared experience of our mums passing away when we were young. I think we both kind of try to hold emotions down and put on a brave face about stuff – writing this has helped me connect with these feelings of grief and with him.”

Of the Amsterdam collaboration, Romy said on Instagram: “Fred!!! First time singing strong live with you was incredible!!

“Thanks so much for having me be a part of your amazing show. Love you Fred, love you Amsterdam.”

Fred again.. released new album ‘Actual Life 3 (January 1 – September 9 2022)’ last month, the third LP in his ongoing diaristic series of albums.

Reviewing ‘Actual Life 3’, NME wrote: “Sitting alongside spontaneous phone recordings made while on his travels, audio snippets from Instagram clips and samples from some of his favourite records, Gibson has sewn a candid diaristic patchwork over the past few years that’s provided him with the basis for building his contemplative yet club-ready sonic world.”

After gigs in Dublin and the aforementioned Amsterdam show, Fred again.. will continue his European tour in Berlin tonight (September 27) before ending with three sold-out hometown gigs in London at Brixton Academy from December 7-9.

Pusha T released his fourth studio album ‘It’s Almost Dry’ in April. The album – which he dubs “rap album of the motherfucking year” – scored a glowing five-star review from NME.

The review said: “Pusha T has managed to elevate his art to new heights, signalling that the artist is nowhere close to being done. Despite being longer than ‘Daytona’, there is succinct preciseness to ‘It’s Almost Dry’ with Pusha’s lyricism, in particular, never left wanting.

Read the NME Big Read cover feature with Pusha T all about the creation of ‘It’s Almost Dry’.

Across 2022, Pusha T has shared a pair of diss tracks aimed at McDonald’s. Back in March, the rapper shared ‘Spicy Fish Diss Track‘ in collaboration with Arby’s – where Pusha took aim at the chain’s Filet-o-Fish burger.

A new track, titled ‘Rib Roast’, sees Pusha T reconnect with Arby’s to diss their rivals McDonald’s, by questioning the quality of their food and McRibs.

Watch Adele begin long-awaited Las Vegas residency: “Thank you for coming back to me”

She later added: “I don’t get to go off stage for about 50 minutes so I’m going to have [a] shitty face of streaked makeup for the whole first part of the show.

“I’m so nervous and I’m so scared and I’m so happy. It might be a bit wobbly at times because my nerves are out of control. It’s a bloody massive week for me this week. It’s the Walking Dead finale on Sunday!

“It’s opening night, it’s the Walking Dead, it’s the Grammys and it’s the World Cup, fucking hell, there’s a lot going on.”

After she revealed that the concerts were postponed due to problems with the stage show, last night’s opening saw a tasteful and minimal stage setup, with a grand piano at the back of the stage and huge screens flanking Adele.

See footage of the show – which featured Stormzy and Rich Paul in the audience – and see the full setlist below. ‘Weekends With Adele’ continues tonight (November 19).

Earlier this week, Adele shared a message with fans ahead of starting her Las Vegas residency, saying that she’s “incredibly nervous” but “so excited”.

“I’m feeling all sorts as I write this. I’m highly emotional, incredibly nervous but can’t sit still because I’m so excited,” she began.

“I feel a million miles away from home, I can’t stop thinking about when I was little and saw Tom Jones in Mars Attacks and thought blimey how did he get from Wales to Las Vegas!?”

Adele continued: “I always get scared before shows, and I take it as a good sign because it means I care and means I just want to do a good job. Maybe it’s because I didn’t start when I was supposed to. Maybe it’s because it’s opening night, maybe it’s because Hyde Park went so great, maybe it’s because I love the show I don’t know.”

Earlier this week, Adele received seven Grammy nominations for the 2023 awards ceremony including Song Of The Year (‘Easy On Me’) and Album Of The Year (’30’).

Charlotte Church announces final Late Night Pop Dungeon tour

3 –  The Clapham Grand, London

8 – Brudenell Social Club, Leeds
9 – New Century, Manchester
16 – SWX, Bristol
21 – DEPOT, Cardiff

Speaking about the upcoming tour, Church said: “After 6 ecstatic years of unparalleled debauchery, the Late Night Pop Dungeon is hanging up its feathers, sequins, P.V.C and velour.

“All good things must come to an end, and this ending will be the most euphorically lickable ending conceivable. Think Carrie meets Sunset Boulevard, soundtracked by the 2nd side of Abbey Road.

“Think a pool party with Prince and Kate Bush at the grill, Beyonce and Kurt Cobain on the bar… except it’s also Christmas, and both Santa and Kevin Mcallister are here to get down. Look, there’s Trent Reznor and Ozzy Osborne discussing Taylor Swift’s new record…”

Explaining the pop dungeon concept previously, Church said: “Down the dark, dark stairs, upon the bloody gallows of soft rock, through the oubliette of cheese, into the torture chamber of disco, you are welcomed to the Late Night Pop Dungeon.

“The Grand High Executionatrix, dungeon mistress Charlotte Church, and her ten-piece ultra-metronomic post-punk-disco-R’n’R’n’B backing band will give her MK Ultra treatment to the greatest tunes that time forgot, and some that will forever haunt our collective memory. Bring dancing shoes – the floor is on fire.”

‘SHOOK’ is set to be the Atlanta band’s first album since 2020. In a four-star review of ‘There Is No Year’, NME wrote: “There are so many diverse sounds on ‘There is No Year’. It helps that the band are influenced by so many different genres that they can easily float between them without changing their sound.

“This balance means the band’s lyrical message are delivered with more clarity. The band continue to be radical, but rather than being reactionary, ‘There is No Year’ is precise, thoughtful and powerful.”

Earlier this month (October 2), meanwhile, Rage Against The Machine were forced to cancel their forthcoming North America tour dates in 2023 due to de la Rocha’s ongoing leg injury.

Listen to Holly Humberstone’s emotive new track, ‘Can You Afford To Lose Me?’

Speaking about the new project, Humberstone said: “The past couple of years have been a whirlwind and I rarely get the chance to reflect on everything that’s happened. Over the past few months I’ve been looking back; at the music I’ve made, the people I’ve met, the incredible experiences we’ve shared together and where I’m heading on a personal level.

“Playing my songs on tour, seeing them out in the world, and how they’ve affected people differently has made me want to give them another life so much I’ve put them together in the order I would listen to them in now – a fresh evolution of my first two EPs.

“I’ve also added a brand new song called ‘Can You Afford To Lose Me? which is probably one of my favourite songs I’ve ever written. I feel like I’ve changed quite a lot since releasing some of my tracks, so I decided not to include a couple of them – while I’ll always love those songs, I wanted to highlight the ones that resonate the most with where I’m at in my life in this moment. I hope you guys can listen to these songs in new ways, just like I have.

“I guess this is me closing the chapter on the first part of my journey. I’m writing my debut album as we speak and it’s going to come next year. It’s my most personal music yet and I hope I can continue to document my experiences for them to become yours.”

The ‘Can You Afford To Lose Me?’ tracklist is as follows:

‘Can You Afford To Lose Me?’
‘Overkill’
‘Scarlett’
‘Please Don’t Leave Just Yet’ 
‘Deep End’
‘Haunted House’
‘Thursday’
‘Vanilla’
‘The Walls Are Way Too Thin’ 
‘Falling Asleep At The Wheel’
‘Friendly Fire’

Recently, Humberstone shared details of a UK tour for late 2022 that features her biggest shows to date – see the full dates below and pick up tickets here.

In April Humberstone shared her new single ‘Sleep Tight’, co-written with The 1975’s Matty Healy and long-time collaborator Rob Milton. The track follows ‘London Is Lonely’, the NME Award-winning rising pop artist’s first release of 2022.

The star won the award for Best Mixtape at the BandLab NME Awards 2022 for that release. “I just feel really lucky,” she told NME on the red carpet at the event. “[‘The Walls Are Way Too Thin’] is a really special piece of work to me, and I’m glad you guys like it.

“It’s so cool, it’s such an honour. My family used to collect the NME demo CDs when I was young, so I discovered loads of my favourite music through those CDs. So to be here, nominated for Best Mixtape, is bizarre and really, really cool.”

Humberstone previously confirmed to NME at Reading 2021 that she had written more songs with Healy.

The HU share details of new album ‘Rumble Of Thunder’

The song is said to “incorporate Mongolian values, telling a powerful story of battle, faith, and death lyrically and visually”.

Watch the song’s video below:

Speaking about the new single, vocalist Gala shared, “’Black Thunder’ is the crown jewel of our second album. The music video is split into two parts and conveys the core values of men through visuals.

On their upcoming new album, he added: “Our second album will include ‘Black Thunder’, along with many new songs. We can’t wait for you to listen and enjoy it as much as we enjoyed recording it.”

Julia Jacklin unveils details of new album, ‘Pre Pleasure’

“The music video was filmed by my constant collaborator and friend Nick Mckk at Splitpoint lighthouse,” Jacklin continued. “I played a show close by recently and asked on stage if anyone could let me film inside. Someone in the crowd knew a guy and that was it. The rest was filmed in the streets of Northcote, Melbourne.”

Watch the video here:

‘Pre Pleasure’ Tracklisting:
01. ‘Lydia Wears A Cross’
02. ‘Love, Try Not To Let Go’
03. ‘Ignore Tenderness’
04. ‘I Was Neon’
05. ‘Too In Love To Die’
06. ‘Less Of A Stranger’
07. ‘Moviegoer’
08. ‘Magic’
09. ‘Be Careful With Yourself’
10. ‘End Of A Friendship’

Speaking about the new album, Jacklin added: “A lot of the time I feel like I need to do all the work before I can enjoy my life. Whether that’s work on songs or sex, friendships, or my relationship with my family – I think if I work on them long and hard enough, eventually I’ll get to sit around and really enjoy them. But that’s not how anything works is it. It’s all an ongoing process.”

“Making a record to me has always just been about the experience, a new experience in a new place with a new person at the desk, taking the plunge and just seeing what happens,” Jacklin adds of her decision to travel to Canada and work with a new producer for the third time in as many albums.

“For the first time I stepped away from the guitar, and wrote a lot of the album on the Roland keyboard in my apartment in Montreal with its inbuilt band tracks. I blu-tacked reams of butcher paper to the walls, covered in lyrics and ideas, praying to the music gods that my brain would arrange everything in time.”

Jacklin has also unveiled details of a string of new UK & EU tour dates. You can buy tickets here and check out the tour schedule below.

Listen to Sea Girls’ celebratory new single ‘DNA’

“We read your tweets, replied to DMs and loved all your comments about ‘DNA’ and released it for you!” Sea Girls wrote in the clip’s description. “We made this video on a day off from tour in Zurich.”

Frontman Henry Camamile said: “We felt that there was another story to tell from the ‘Homesick’ era, an itch that ‘DNA’ scratches.

“This track is a monumental celebration of being strange. It ponders belonging and identity. ‘DNA’ celebrates people who don’t fit in. You are who you are and that’s why people love you.”

As for the single’s Becky Garner-directed visuals, Camamile explained: “We shot it in just one take whilst travelling between shows on our latest European tour. Our tour bus was heading over the mountains between Germany and Switzerland, and it just all made sense – we had to film there.

“I think we managed to stumble upon one of the most beautiful locations on earth!”

“As the world is slowly reopening again, we have been feeling optimistic about the tour actually taking place in March and April. However – a lot of countries still have restrictions in place, and we are forced to make a decision right now for logistical reasons,” the bands said in a joint statement.

Supergrass postpone December shows due to rise in Omicron cases

Announcing the postponement on Twitter, Supergrass wrote: “Folks, we’re so sorry but we’re going to have to postpone our December shows. A lot has changed over the last few days with the rise in Omicron cases. It’s been an incredibly tough call to make but we feel to play these shows at this point in time would be the wrong thing to do for all concerned.”

“We want to give you all the best show we can, everyone to feel safe and for no fan to lose out at Christmas time due to all the uncertainty at the moment. We’re gutted to have to do this and we hope you all understand.”

So gutted to announce this. Looking to reschedule asap in the new year. pic.twitter.com/cOWS93LNRA

The list of postponed shows is as follows:

The likes of The Charlatans, Sam Fender, Paul Weller and Coldplay have all scrapped recent shows due to COVID infections while The Streets have pulled their entire 2022 tour.

Last week, Boris Johnson announced ‘Plan B’ measures that made COVID passports mandatory for gigs and nightclubs, with people needing to show proof they’re fully vaccinated, or provide a negative test.

However yesterday, he confirmed that the government had no plans to close pubs, venues or nightclubs. “We are not closing hospitality or stopping parties,” he said, though he did urge the public to take caution when attending social events and emphasised the importance of regular testing.

This messaging has created what some industry professionals are calling a “steal lockdown” with many venues “on the brink of collapse” due to postponed gigs, a “catastrophic” drop in attendance and worries about a January lockdown.

Mayor of Greater Manchester Andy Burnham, has hit back at Johnson’s messaging. “You can’t tell people to ‘think carefully’ before going to pubs and restaurants and then fail to provide any support for the workers/businesses affected,” he said on social media.

“The Government needs to bring forward a support package TODAY for hospitality, events, music and other affected sectors.”

In October 2020, Carl Barat spoke to NME to discuss an update on their long-awaited follow-up to 2015’s ‘Anthems For Doomed Youth’.

“It’s been going well, but it’s been difficult with COVID,” Barat explained. “We started writing here, and that was going really well but John [Hassall, bass] is in Denmark and Pete [Doherty] is in France. It’s been a fucker to travel.

“We’re just waiting to get back on it, really. We’re all writing and it’s all positive. We’re just waiting to get back and lay stuff down, it’s just a matter of when. It would be nice if we could do it here. That would make a lot of sense. We’ve never been readier. We just need to get together and do it.”

Listen to Dirty Hit’s latest signing Wallice come of age on new single ‘Wisdom Tooth’

“I wrote this song in a session with my long-time collaborator and best friend marinelli the day before I got my wisdom teeth out,” she said in a statement. “The doctor had just called to say that I’d also need a bone graft to fill in the space in my jaw where the tooth used to be. It really shook me up and there was no way we could write a different song after that.

“Getting your wisdom teeth out is an event that many people have to go through, it’s a physical sign of growing up. In the song ‘Wisdom Tooth’, I conflate this experience to getting rid of a person in your life as a milestone of growing up too. It shows that sometimes people can grow apart and though it can be hard, it might be better to leave a relationship or friendship rather than keep on trying to make it work.

She added: “It also talks about how there are little reminders in your life that can bring you back to that person mentally, even though you have moved on.”

You can listen to ‘Wisdom Tooth’ below:

‘Wisdom Tooth’ comes ahead of Wallice’s first headline shows in LA and New York next month. You can check out the dates below:

In other Dirty Hit news, No Rome has shared a new track called ‘I Want U’.

The song serves as the second preview of the artist’s forthcoming debut album, ‘It’s All Smiles’, which is set to arrive on December 3.

No Rome also serves as a co-producer on his upcoming first record alongside Burton (who’s previously worked with Kanye West, Bon Iver and Charli XCX) and The 1975’s George Daniel.

Recording for the project took place in No Rome’s hometown of Manila after COVID-enforced restrictions prevented him from returning to London.

Meanwhile, Beabadoobee has given an insight into her upcoming second album, explaining that “every single song is in a whole different world”.

Los Campesinos! detail ‘Romance Is Boring’ and ‘Hello Sadness’ anniversary reissues

Both releases are due out February 18, 2022 via Arts & Crafts.

The band are set to play a string of UK shows in December – see the full list of dates below, with tickets available from the band’s website.

DECEMBER 2021

13 – Tramshed, Cardiff
14 – Village Underground, London
15 – Brudenell Social Club, Leeds

In a four-star review of ‘Hello Sadness’, NME said: “The kids of the LC! still bristle with a fundamental melodic vibrancy, and the hand-in-hand maturing of music-writer Tom Campesinos! into the realms of Sonic Youth thrashes, cranky synthetics and handclaps, harmonium, violin and bar-room piano gives the record a gravitas to counterpoint Gareth’s lyrical anguish.”

Earlier this year, Los Campesinos! shared a surprise new EP called ‘Whole Damn Body’.

The band’s 2011 album ‘Hello Sadness’ celebrates its 10th anniversary in November, and to mark the occasion (a little early) they decided to release a collection of songs from that era.

Listen to The Lathums’ uplifting new Christmas single ‘Krampus’

He continues: “I am not a massive Christmas fan, but always eventually get my paper hat on and join in the fun, I can’t help it. After the year we’ve had we’ve got so much cause to celebrate, so this single is one last ‘thank you’ to everyone that’s supported us for the year. See you all, even bigger and better, in 2022”

The Lathums recently beat Drake to the Number One spot with their debut album ‘How Beautiful Life Can Be‘ last month.

Reviewing the record, NME awarded it four stars and dubbed it a “charming debut from Wigan’s finest”.

It added: “The four-piece deliver a spritely debut that pays tribute to their existing guitar heroes.”

The band are currently in the middle of their UK tour which culminates in a show at Blackpool Empress Ballroom in April 2022.
