Listen to the UK's 2024 Eurovision Song Contest entry - Olly Alexander's Dizzy - here.

Liam Payne is back with the first taste of his upcoming second solo album, dropping Teardrops this week. To date, Liam's scored six Top 40 singles as a soloist, including debut Strip That Down ft. Quavo (3) and Rita Ora collab For You (8).

Angels, rejoice. As she announces her upcoming sixth studio album brat, Charli XCX returns with the much-anticipated Von dutch this week. With the follow-up to 2023 Sam Smith collaboration In The City, Charli will be hoping to claim a 15th UK top 40 single. 

Having previously dabbled in dance alongside The Chainsmokers (on 2019’s Who Do You Love), 5 Seconds of Summer now team up with Galantis and David Guetta on uplifting banger Lighter. Could the collab earn Guetta a 48th (yep) Top 40 tune?

Pharrell joins forces with Miley Cyrus on Doctor (Work It Out), while Mae Stephens drops brand-new release Make Me Your Mrs. Elsewhere, Welsh pop princess CATTY brings us a banger of monstrous proportions with I DATED A MONSTER, which contains an intelligent sample of The Automatic’s British rock touchstone and Number 4 hit, Monster.

Linkin Park release previously-unheard track Friendly Fire. Featuring vocals from the late Chester Bennington, the group’s lead singer who tragically died in 2017, aged 41. The group – Mike Shinoda, Brad Delson, Rob Bourdon, Joe Hahn and Dave Farrell – release their hits compilation Papercuts - Singles Collection 2000-2023 on April 12, from which Friendly Fire is lifted. 

On the albums front, Liam Gallagher and John Squire unveil their first collaborative album, Liam Gallagher John Squire. The first full-length release from the former Oasis star and The Stone Roses guitarist includes the singles Just Another Rainbow (16) and Mars To Liverpool. Should it reach Number 1 next week, it’ll take Liam to a total of 13 chart-topping LPs across his career, and John his first ever.   

Elsewhere, Leeds-formed rock group Yard Act release their second studio album Where’s My Utopia? Preceded by singles When The Laughter Stops ft. Katy J Pearson, We Make Hits, Dream Job and Petroleum, the record was co-produced by the band alongside Gorillaz member Remi Kabaka Jr. Yard Act’s debut LP The Overload peaked at Number 2 in 2022, just missing out to Years & Years’ chart-topper Night Call. Could Where’s My Utopia? go one better? 

Meanwhile, fellow Leeds lads Kaiser Chiefs are feeling confident with their latest record Kaiser Chiefs’ Easy Eighth Album, as West London rapper Skrapz aims for a second Top 40 album with REFLECTION.
