Check out all of this week's new single, album and DVD/Blu-ray releases at the bottom of the page, but first, some highlights...
Anne-Marie - Speak Your Mind (album)
First emerging in 2013 as part of Rudimental's touring band, Anne-Marie found her footing as a singer in her own right on 2016's Alarm. Fast-forward two years and eight (!) singles and the Essex-born singer's debut album has finally arrived. The result is a selection of highly polished pop, from the nostalgia-drenched 2002 co-written by Ed Sheeran to the hook-laden opener Cry.
Janelle Monae - Dirty Computer (album)
After two critically adored but commercially middling albums, Georgia-born Janelle Monae looks set to win on both fronts with her third record. It'd be easy to get excited by the lineup of collaborators alone - Brian Wilson, Grimes, Pharrell Williams to name but a few - but from the Prince-inspired lead single Make Me Feel, her irresistible rapping on Django Chain and sharp-as-a-tack lyrics on I Got The Juice ("If you try to grab my pussycat / This puss will grab you back..."), Janelle ensures she remains the star of the show.
Blossoms - Cool Like You (album)
Stockport indie-rockers Blossoms shift from '80s-inspired rock to synth-led pop on the follow-up to their 2016 Number 1 self-titled debut. Between the banging opener There’s A Reason Why (I Never Returned Your Calls) to the wonderfully wistful Stranger Still, Cool Like You is a big two-fingered salute to the 'difficult second album'.
Stargate - 1Night ft. Partynextdoor, 21 Savage & Murda Beatz (single)
Following last year's collaboration with Pink and Sia on Waterfall, mega hit producers Stargate (seriously, look them up) are having another stab at headline success with 1Night. The track reflects the recent switch up in their sound, having once turned out hits for S Club 7 and Blue before working with Tinashe and Rihanna. This time they adopt a heavier hip-hop sound with the help of Partynextdoor, 21 Savage and Murda Beatz.
Dusky Grey - Joy Ride (single)
Welsh pop duo Dusky Grey have a knack for subtly catchy songs (see Told Me and Call Me Over), and new single Joy Ride is no different. The track is, they explain, about the peer pressure young people feel growing up: "We thought it was important to relay the message of just doing what you want to do, and not letting anyone force or encourage you to do anything you’re not into."
