Line of Duty, the BBC2 drama about police corruption, will be promoted to appear on BBC1 for at least two more series, after more than five million people tuned in to watch its third season. The show, which stars Martin Compston and Vicky McClure, has had three series on the smaller BBC2, and it finished on a high last week, attracting 5.6 million viewers. It will follow the likes of The Great British Bake Off, The Apprentice, MasterChef and Miranda onto BBC1. Viewing figures for its third series put it ahead of Wolf Hall as BBC2's most watched drama show of the modern era. Proving something of a slow-burner, 4.1 million people watched its first season in 2012, and in 2014, an average of 3.4 million watched its second. The show has also been a hit with the critics, having won numerous awards, including BAFTAs for best writer, and best leading and supporting actresses in 2015. The BBC’s controller of TV channels and iPlayer Charlotte Moore said: “Line of Duty is original, bold, gripping drama that gets the nation talking and the time is right to bring the series to an even broader audience on BBC1. “Jed Mecurio’s explosive thriller will find a new home on BBC1 for two more series and create room for new drama to flourish on BBC2.”

The winkingly named genre "tropical house" was the sound of dance music in the summer 2015 – a languid pool party fantasia of vaguely Caribbean percussion, chirpy digital panpipes and a permanent license to chill. But while the Felix Jaehn remix to Omi's "Cheerleader" and Justin Bieber's "What Do You...

Aging rock and pop stars often seek a late-career safe harbor in country music, but 62-year-old Cyndi Lauper tackles the genre with characteristically daring eccentricity.

One out of every six albums bought in the USA is by a British act, according to the latest figures from the BPI. Led by the remarkable performance of Adele's 2015 album '25', which shifted more than 7.4 units in just six weeks, British artists are now more popular than they've ever been on the other side of the Atlantic. Meanwhile, Ed Sheeran’s 'X' and Sam Smith’s' In The Lonely Hour' were the fourth and sixth best-selling albums in the annual Billboard charts. Florence + The Machine, Mumford & Sons, and Muse also made massive contributions to a bumper year for British music. Getty Geoff Taylor, the boss of the BPI - which regulates the music industry in the UK - said: “The drumbeat of British music success in North America just keeps getting louder. British acts such as Adele, Ed Sheeran, Sam Smith and Mark Ronson have become part of the music mainstream in both the US and Canada – as popular as any home-grown talent, and their sustained success has opened the door to a new generation of UK artists coming through." In Canada, Brits' success rates were even higher; 20 per cent of albums sold in the country were made by UK acts - that's one album in every five sold. And Mark Ronson’s ubiquitous single 'Uptown Funk' was the most downloaded track of 2015 in the US, despite being released in 2014, with over 5.5m sales, which pushed the British share of the North American singles market to 12.9 per cent. John Whittingdale, the culture secretary, said: “Britain is a hive of creative talent so it’s no surprise that our UK artists are continuing to make a huge impact on the North American music market. Not only are the likes of Adele and Sam Smith inspiring whole new generations with their success overseas, but they’re flying the flag for Britain by showcasing our creativity and contributing more than £2bn to our economy through exports.”

Former Slipknot drummer Joey Jordison, who parted ways with the metal group in 2013 after nearly two decades, has started a new band called Vimic. Vimic is Jordison's first new project since leaving Slipknot and sees the drummer link up again with his members of his previous side-project Scar the Martyr. The band's first single 'Simple Skeletons' has been premiered via SiriusXM. Their debut LP, 'Open Your Omen', is out later this year on Roadrunner Records. "I decided I wanted to start fresh," Jordison told radio host Jose Mangin. "I did not want to keep rehashing old ideas. If I am going to keep going, I really just wanted to break loose and wipe the slate clean. So I renamed the band, and I got a new singer and a new keyboard player [plus] three other members from the Scar the Martyr lineup. We went down into the basement and started demoing material and everything started clicking." When Jordison left the band in 2013, his departure was put down to "personal reasons". "It is with great pain but quiet respect that for personal reasons Joey Jordison and Slipknot are parting ways," the statement – released in December 2013 – said. "We all wish Joey the best in whatever his future holds. We understand that many of you will want to know how and why this has come to be, and we will do our best to respond to these questions in the near future." Slipknot frontman Corey Taylor has meanwhile hinted that the band will change their sound in order to continue moving forward. The masked metal act released their most recent album, '.5: The Gray Chapter', in 2014. Speaking to US radio DJ Full Metal Jackie, Taylor was asked how he envisions the future of the band and how they will adapt as they get older. Taylor admitted this was something he and his bandmates have already begun thinking about. "It's something that me and Clown and Jim have kind of been talking about for a couple of months now. Like, where do we go? I mean, this band has always tried to find the path less traveled," he said. "We've always tried to expand the range of the music that we're making and find new ways to speak our piece, find new ways to kind of push our agenda and our message. And it's getting to the point where, at some point, the music will have to evolve. And I think from day one until this album, it has. We've done really great things to broaden our musical horizons. At the same time, though, at some point it's gonna have to twist and it's gonna have to change even more, because when does the war end? When do you feel like you've said everything you need to say on that subject?"

Taylor Swift was the highest-earning musician in the world last year, according to official US figures. Experts have calculated that she earned a whopping $73.5m (£50.9m) in 2015, just from her music. Most of that - $61.7m (£42.8m) came from the massive world tour she undertook in support of her most recent album '1989'. She also earned $7.2m (£5m) from album sales, $4.1m (£2.8m) from publishing rights, and just $564,000 (£391,000) from streaming. The total figure doesn't even take into account the no-doubt enormous sponsorship deals she has with, amongst others, Keds, Apple Music and Diet Coke. According to Billboard, which compiled the figures, Swift owned 2015 to the extent that she made nearly twice as much as her nearest rival, the US country star Kenny Chesney, who made a paltry $39.8m (£27.6m) in 2015. Press Other big sellers on the list include The Rolling Stones in third, with $39.6m (£27.6m) in sales; Billy Joel with $31.7m (£21.9m); and One Direction, the highest-earning British musicians, with $24.2m (£16.8m). One Direction had the highest streaming revenue in 2015, earning $891.8m (£617.9m). It will not have escaped record industry execs' notice that streaming accounts for by far the tiniest part of even the biggest stars' earnings. The top ten was rounded off by Grateful Dead & Company, Luke Bryan, U2, Adele, and Maroon 5. Other Brits in the list include Elton John in fifteenth Ed Sheeran in seventeenth. The highest-ranked urban artist was J Cole, who with earnings of $8.8m (£6.1m) in 2015 was the twenty-seventh highest earner.
