The full list of this week's key New Music Friday releases appears at the bottom of the page, but first, some highlights...
Billie Eilish returns this #NewMusicFriday with her second studio album Happier Than Ever, a highly-anticipated collection that already boasts five UK Top 40 singles. Available on eight vinyl variants, it's an album that will certainly cater to record collectors, and judging by Billie's massive streaming numbers, the 19-year-old appeals to those who listen to their music on the go too.
A posthumous Prince album also promises to be a big release this week. Welcome 2 America, recorded in 2010 has been described as "the best album of his last two decades" and "alive, relevant and fresh" by critics.
Producers to the stars and artist in his own right Jack Antonoff aka Bleachers is back with his third album Take The Sadness Out Of Saturday Night, and he's roped in some friends in high places Bruce Springsteen and Lana Del Rey for the project.
Skepta also returns this week with his five-track EP All In, which curiously features Kid Cudi and J Balvin, making this the Mercury Prize winner's most international project to date.
On the singles front, Clean Bandit have teamed up with German producer Topic and Love Islander turned Top 40 hitmaker Wes Nelson for Drive, which features the electronic trio's signature amalgamation of euphoric synths and uplifting strings.
