This week's longlist of New Music Friday releases appears at the bottom of the page, but first, a few highlights...
Bugzy Malone returns with his second studio album The Resurrection this week. The collection chronicles Bugzy's near-death experience in a motorcycle crash and features Don't Cry with Dermot Kennedy, and Top 40 hit Notorious featuring Chip.
First released digitally back in October, Bring Me The Horizon's EP Post Human: Survival Horror is getting a physical release on CD, cassette and vinyl, which we expect to send the collection back to the upper reaches of the Official Albums Chart. Post Human reached Number 5 on the Official Albums Chart on first release, topping the Albums Downloads Chart in the same week.
Other acts releasing albums this week include Northern Irish electronic duo Bicep, and Cambridge rock band Lonely The Brave, plus there are vinyl releases from Bob Dylan, David Bowie, Kate Rusby, Mariah Carey and Talking Heads.
On the singles front, Silk City - aka Mark Ronson and Diplo - release their new single New Love featuring Ellie Goulding. The pair had a Number 4 single Electricity featuring Dua Lipa back in October 2018, and had previously released collaborations with GoldLink, Desiigner, Mapei and Daniel Merriweather. Ellie Goulding was last in the Top 40 in Christmas 2019 with her Number 1 single River, and she claimed a chart-topping album last summer with Brightest Blue.
More singles this week come from the likes of Billie Eilish & Rosalia, Griff, Jason Derulo ft. Adam Levine, Royal Blood and Tate McRae.
