Last week, Arlo Parks created her home-made version of NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert for the online performance series.

19-year-old Parks’ set up was more pared back than the usual NPR office, with a simple desk, some plants, laptop and amp surrounding her as she played new and old tracks.

The West Londoner opened her 16-minute set with latest single ‘Hurt’, released in August, followed by ‘Cola’, ‘Eugene’ and ‘Black Dog’.

Meanwhile, Billie Eilish has launched a collection of toy figures inspired by the videos for hit singles ‘Bad Guy’ and ‘All The Good Girls Go To Hell’.

Made in partnership with Playmates Toys and Bravado, the line launches on October 15 on Eilish’s official website.
