Check out the full list of new singles, albums and DVD/Blu-rays out this week at the bottom of the page, but first, some highlights…
Khalid & Normani – Love Lies
Fifth Harmony’s Normani makes her solo debut (of sorts) by teaming up with rising star Khalid, who returns after last year’s hugely successful Young Dumb & Broke and Top 10 collaborations with Marshmello and Logic. Love Lies hears the two trading flirty one-liners, and, at least vocally, they sound like a good match.
Muse – Thought Contagion
The Devon rockers’ header for their eighth album is anthemic glam-pop that recalls the poppier turn of some of their biggest hits, plus it comes with some epic ‘80s sci-fi movie-inspired artwork.
PRETTYMUCH – 10,000 Hours
Could this be the song to break Simon Cowell’s new boyband? The US-Canadian quintet haven’t quite taken off in the way everyone expected to yet after recent single No More missed the Top 40, but 10,000 Hours – which sounds like classic *NSync meets Bruno Mars’ That’s What I Like – could be just the ticket.
Disciples – 48 Hours
Not putting in quite as many hours as PRETTYMUCH are South London trio Disciples, who are back with 48 Hours, a track they described to us as capturing “what a 48 hour rave up truly feels like.” Chilled but thumping, euphoric yet spacey, expect to hear this one down your nearest superclub.
Sean Paul & David Guetta ft. Becky G – Mad Love
There’s still something oddly charming about Seal Paul’s showboating displays, isn’t there? New single Mad Love continues his tried and tested dancehall-lite pop formula and throwing a pick 'n' mix of other collaborators in there.
Paris Hilton – I Need You
Paris Hilton needs you, and you need to listen to this new Paris Hilton single, if only for the line: “I wanna be the bunny in your Easter”.
