This week's longlist of New Music Friday releases appears at the bottom of the page, but first, a few highlights...
Zayn returns this week with his third studio album, the curiously titled Nobody Is Listening. Featuring smooth R&B-led singles Better and Vibez, Zayn is said to have had “total creative reign” over the record, making it his most personal album yet.
Singer, songwriter and newly-appointed The Voice coach Anne-Marie has teamed up with KSI and Digital Farm Animals for new single Don’t Play. It’s approaching a year since Anne-Marie last appeared in the Top 40, while KSI and Digital Farm Animals scored a Top 3 hit together (along with Craig David) on Really Love last November.
Ariana Grande could see her latest Top 10 hit 34+35 reach new heights, thanks to a new remix out this week featuring Megan Thee Stallion and Doja Cat (!).
90s nostalgia alert! The new Topic & A7S single samples ATB’s massive Number 1 hit 9pm (Til I Come). The track follows the pair’s Top 3 smash from last year, Breaking Me.
US band Why Don’t We have undergone somewhat of a rebirth on their second album, titled The Good Times and The Bad Ones, having taken on the bulk of the songwriting and production (with a bit of final tweakage from Travis Barker, Skrillex and Timbaland). Led by trailer single Fallin’ (Adrenaline), the record is ten tracks of thrilling, bold, hi-NRG pop-rock.
