“This is the type of mixtape to go back to over and over again,” NME wrote of PinkPantheress’ ‘To Hell With It’ in a five-star review upon its release this month. “Its 16-minute runtime certainly encourages that.

“PinkPantheress unloads these breathless and adventurous songs with a winning confidence that comes only when you outperform everyone’s expectations, especially your own.”

Coldplay meanwhile, have sold more than one million tickets across Europe for their 2022 ‘Music Of The Spheres’ world tour.

The extensive jaunt, which includes six dates at Wembley Stadium, was announced as having an emphasis on environmental sustainability, with measures including cutting direct emissions by 50 per cent compared to the band’s last tour in 2016 and 2017, using 100 per cent renewable energy and having solar installations at every venue.

After the announcement of the tour, PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) urged the band to only serve vegan food at the shows in order to further drive down the carbon footprint of the tour.
