Last week’s music news only confirmed what we already knew. To the surprise of absolutely no-one, Paul McCartney was confirmed as the wealthiest musician in Britain,with him and his wife Nancy Shevell sharing a £730 million fortune. Who knew you could earn so much as the songwriter for one of the biggest bands in history? Not all Beatles are equal however, with poor Ringo earning a lowly £180 million. We also received confirmation that no-one is interested in Tidal, with the artist owned streaming music service slipping out of the top 700 apps in the iTunes store. Following the news, Jay-Z took to twitter to accuse unnamed companies of ‘spending millions on a smear campaign.’ While I would welcome a company that champions the cause of emerging artists, a release featuring numerous millionaires complaining about not being paid dispelled that image before the service had even begun. With our weekly rant out of the way, here’s what you all really came here for: Refused - Elektra The best and most unexpected music news of the week came courtesy of Swedish punks Refused. After announcing their comeback, the band unveiled ‘Elektra’, the first new song to come from the band since 1998. Musically, the track picks up exactly where they left off, marking an explosive return for one of the architects of modern rock. Jordan Bratton - Prisoner ft Chance the Rapper Chance the Rapper continues to show himself to be one of the hardest working musicians in rap. In his latest collaboration he joins New York’s Jordan Bratton for this soulful R&B track, showcasing his versatility in a toned down, reflective verse. Tulpa - Deer Stared At Me (Clayjay Remix)
