New Releases

Every Thursday, we here at Official Charts round up the biggest New Releases coming your way across music and home entertainment. 

This week's biggest release has already been featured on New Releases, of course, but comes to us now in an entirely new form.

Of course, I'm talking about Taylor Swift and about her tenth album Midnights, already a record-breaking UK Number 1 album which is coming back into our lives with a brand new deluxe, Til The Dawn Edition.

With Tay currently on tour with The Eras Tour (where are those UK dates, hun?) Midnights (Til Dawn Edition) has a few surprises; it's being lead with a remix of hairdryer-synth banger Karma featuring rapper Ice Spice (best known for her viral verse of PinkPantheress' UK Number 2 single Boy's A Liar) and a re-recorded version of Snow On The Beach with Lana Del Rey billed as featuring, hilariously, more Lana Del Rey (you always need more Lana Del Rey).

With Midnights still a constant presence in the Official Albums Chart, the inclusion of a few new tracks will no doubt help bolster it for the few weeks where we all wait in anticipation for Speak Now (Taylor's Version).

Also coming up on big album releases this week is Arlo Parks' follow-up to the Mercury Prize winning, Top 3 debut album Collapsed In Sunbeams. My Soft Machine comes with lofty expectations, given that Arlo has worked on the album with producer Paul Epworth (Adele) and has collaborated with indie-rock queen Phoebe Bridgers. 

And BRIT Award-nominated singer-songwriter Lola Young continues to move in a completely unique and enrapturing space, issuing her first full-length project, My Mind Wanders And Sometimes Leaves Completely (what a title). 

And now let's turn our attention to some of this week's biggest single releases.

Chief among them is the long-awaited pop return of Dua Lipa, shaking off the shackles of Future Nostalgia to give us the lead single from Greta Gerwig's Barbie movie starring Margot Robbie as the titular doll (and Ryan Gosling as Ken).

Dua's comeback single is called Dance All Night, we've heard a little snippet of the track and can confirm it finds Dua back in a candy-coated disco space, and is apparently produced by Mark Ronson, who will be exec producing Barbie: The Album also featuring Charli XCX, Ava Max and more

Beyoncé is currently dazzling audiences up and down the country on her Renaissance Tour (saw her in Cardiff, was the best night of my life) and she's just released a new version of one of her disco opus' most stirring tracks, America Has A Problem, with Kendrick Lamar.

We also have a new one from everyone's favourite Good Witch, Maisie Peters, who is ready to break your heart on her emotional new single Two Weeks Ago, which made me a bit weepy, since it's about wishing you could turn back the clock on something that's gone rotten, and you remember that just two weeks ago, everything was fine. And you want nothing more than to go back to two weeks ago and pretend it will all work out again. The Good Witch, shaping up to be Maisie's sharpest work yet, is due for release on June 23.
