New Releases

Welcome to your New Music Friday round-up, here to serve you the biggest music and home entertainment releases of the week.

Spoiler alert: it's a great week for fans of a Main Pop Girl.

Out are the glitterballs, in are the hay bales for Beyoncé as she leans into country on 16 CARRIAGES and TEXAS HOLD 'EM; the first tracks lifted from her newly-announced RENAISSANCE Act II album. The follow-up to her chart-topping 2022 LP RENAISSANCE, the record is released March 29.

Vocal powerhouses Ariana Grande and Mariah Carey team up on a brand-new version of Ari's Top 5 hit yes, and?. The pair last joined forces alongside Jennifer Hudson on Mariah's 2020 track Oh Santa!.

Training Season is over. Dua Lipa said so. After premiering her Houdini follow-up at the GRAMMYs earlier this month, Dua's finally ready to unleash her brand-new single. Written alongside Caroline Ailin, Danny L. Harle, Tobias Jesso Jr. and Kevin Parker, and produced by Parker, Dua explains Training Season is about 'that feeling when you are just absolutely done telling people, men specifically in this case, how to date you right.'

Elsewhere, Calvin Harris teams up with Rag'n'Bone Man once again on Lovers in a Past Life, Joel Corry returns with Majestic and Ron Carroll collab Nikes On, former BRITs Rising Star winner Holly Humberstone releases Dive and Russ Millions recruits IQ for brand-new cut Night Gown.

On the albums front, Bristol-formed rockers IDLES drop their fifth studio album TANGK. Preceded by Dancer, Gift Horse and Grace, the record sees the group collaborate with LCD Soundsystem, plus producers Kenny Beats and Nigel Godrich. Oh, and the video for Grace - a deepfaked edit of Coldplay's Yellow clip - truly has to be seen to be believed.

Paloma Faith will be hoping for a sixth Official Top 10 album with latest collection The Glorification of Sadness, which includes the singles How You Leave a Man, Bad Woman and Pressure (feat. Kojey Radical). Meanwhile, Jennifer Lopez releases her ninth studio album This Is Me...Now. On the record, Jennifer samples Justin Timberlake's Cry Me a River (This Is Me...Now) and teams up with the likes of BTS songwriter Jessica Agombar (To Be Yours).
