New Music Friday releases 21 June 2024

Welcome to New Music Friday, your one place to discover the biggest new song, album and DVD releases. 

Let’s kick off with some big singles, shall we? 

Following her Top 10 solo debut Forget About Us, Little Mix’s Perrie returns with Tears; a slinky, ‘80s-inspired break-up bop that allows Perrie’s inimitable vocals space to shine. Speaking exclusively to Official Charts, Perrie says: “I've had this song for a long time, I've had it for like a year and a half, and I'm just so excited to get it out. I think it's super catchy as well, and I just love the concept.”

As she teases a deluxe reissue of Number 1 album eternal sunshine, Ariana Grande recruits R&B superstars Brandy and Monica for a remix of latest single the boy is mine. Brandy and Monica’s iconic duet of the same name peaked at Number 2 back in 1998. 

As she prepares to support Taylor Swift on The Eras Tour at London’s Wembley Stadium, Minnesota-born multihyphenate METTE returns with MUSCLE. Meanwhile, fellow Taylor support act Griff drops Anything. It serves as the latest track from her upcoming debut album Vertigo, released July 19. 

Coldplay are back with feelslikeimfallinginlove, the first taste of their newly-announced Moon Music album, due October 4. The group will top the bill on Glastonbury’s iconic Pyramid Stage on Saturday June 29; marking their record fifth headline slot at the festival. 

With the announcement of his sixth studio album F-1 Trillion, due to be released on August 16, Post Malone joins forces with country star Blake Shelton on Pour Me A Drink. The track serves as the follow-up to Posty’s recent Number 2-peaking Morgan Wallen collab I Had Some Help

Ahead of his first-ever BLUDFEST on August 11, YUNGBLUD returns with breakdown. The track is released alongside a short film scripted by double Olivier Award winner Chris Bush and starring Dame Harriet Walter (Ted Lasso, Succession and Killing Eve).

Elsewhere, Kasabian deliver Darkest Lullaby, lifted from forthcoming LP Happenings, Fontaines D.C.’s Favourite is the latest release from their Romance album and Alec Benjamin drops brand-new track Found You First as he prepares to play BST Hyde Park alongside Stray Kids this summer.

Now, let’s talk albums.

Fresh off the back of her first-ever UK Top 40 single Close To You, Gracie Abrams releases her second studio collection The Secret Of Us. The record, co-produced by Gracie alongside Aaron Dessner, Sam de Jong and Bleachers' Jack Antonoff, includes a collaboration with Taylor Swift, us., and will hope to replicate the Top 5 success of debut LP Good Riddance.

Wirrall-formed alt-rock outfit The Mysterines will be looking to earn a second Official Top 10 album with Afraid of Tomorrows this week. The group's debut, Reeling, peaked at Number 9 on its release in 2022.

Ed Sheeran celebrates a decade of his X album with a 10th Anniversary Edition. The multi-format reissue includes the original 12-track LP, plus nine bonus songs available on vinyl for the first time.

Avril Lavigne releases her first-ever retrospective this week. Her Greatest Hits encapsulates a 22-year career, featuring the likes of Complicated, I'm With You and When You're Gone.

And, finally, fellow Canadian Céline Dion delivers hits compilation I Am: Celine Dion. The record serves as the soundtrack to Céline's Amazon Prime Video documentary film of the same name, available globally from June 25, which chronicles the iconic singer's battle with life-altering autoimmune neurological disorder Stiff Person Syndrome (SPS). I Am: Celine Dion includes two UK Number 1 singles: 1994's Think Twice and 1998 classic My Heart Will Go On.
