New Releases: Olivia Rodrigo, Stormzy, Rita Ora, Mae Muller & more!

This week's biggest new single, album and DVD releases - only on Official Charts.
New Music Friday

We're starting New Releases today with one of pop's most talked-about comeback stories.

After pulling off one of the most impressive (and successful) debut album campaigns we've ever seen with SOUR in 2021, Olivia Rodrigo returns with the first taste of her sophomore album, GUTS with its lead cut, Vampire. Produced by her main SOUR collaborator Dan Nigro and packaged with a fancy new video from Petra Collins (Good For You, Selena Gomez), expectations are obviously sky high to see if Olivia can swerve the difficult second album curse. With Vampire already sounding like a maudlin, gothic ballad, consider our ears perked up and perched for everything to come. 

One of Britain's most reliable bop makers, Rita Ora, gifts us the latest banger from her forthcoming third record You & I today. Don't Think Twice plays closer to the electronic pop of You Only Love Me, complete with a massive chorus. Keep an eye out too for its visuals, directed by Rita's husband Taika Waititi (the mogul always has connections) and including some barmy choreography you'll be dying to try yourself too. 

Fresh off her first-ever UK Top 10 single with the Eurodance banger I Wrote A Song, Mae Muller lays the ground work for her debut album, Sorry I'm Late (it's OK, hun) with her latest bop, Me, Myself & I. Read our impressions of the track from our exclusive Me, Myself & I First Listen here.

Stormzy is on a roll right now. Releasing his first-ever collab with Fredo, Toxic Trait, last week, Stormz has taken it back to basics with another surprise new track, Longevity Flow. Is a new album on the way?

Other new singles come from former Eurovision winner Netta, who co-wrote her new single Everything with Zara Larsson, while Charli XCX offers up another fun pop song about cars. Speed Drive cruises into position from the Barbie original soundtrack, and is Charli, baby at her bubble gum best. 

While on the album's beat, rising British singer Olivia Dean (who has worked with Rudimental in the past) releases her debut album Messy and UK indie-pop idol The Japanese House issues her taut sophomore record, In The End It Always Does, via Dirty Hit.

Where is the list of new releases?



Glad we can comment here too now, a welcome feature. I guess we know who'll be No1 next week. Personally though i quite like the new Dean Lewis song, i don't think he gets enough recognition.
