Lana Del Rey – ‘Beautiful People Beautiful Problems’ featuring Stevie Nicks

Prior to this record, Lana has never collaborated with anyone on her albums however, it’s all change this time round with no less than five collaborations. Alongside The Weeknd, ASAP Rocky, Playboi Carter and Sean Ono Lennon, Lana teams up with Queen of Rock and Roll, Stevie Nicks. The result is simply stunning, as is the rest of the album.

Enrique Iglesias, Matt Terry, and Sean Paul – ‘Subeme La Radio’

Following the success of Enrique Iglesias’ Spanish single ‘Subeme La Radio’, he has teamed up with Sean Paul and X Factor 2016 winner Matt Terry for an English remix. Speaking about working with two music legends, Matt Terry said: “When I first heard I was going to be working with Enrique and Sean Paul on this track, I couldn’t believe it. It’s a real honor to be working with such huge talent. I’ve always wanted to make music that taps in to my love affair with Latin music and hopefully this will give people a taster of what’s to come from me.” The Spanish version of the song has already gone viral, with over 553 million views on YouTube and 237 million Spotify streams.

 

PRETTYMUCH – ‘Would You Mind’

‘Would You Mind’ is the debut single from five-piece boyband PRETTYMUCH. Made up of Brandon, Nick, Zion, Austin and Edwin, the band is the brainchild of Simon Cowell so they’re surely destined for success. ‘Would You Mind’ was written by songwriter extraordinaire Savan Kotecha and showcases a 90s influenced sound. The track is a fun take at approaching someone in a club. Keep your eyes peeled for PRETTYMUCH as we’re certain you’ll be seeing a lot more of them over the next few months!

Fond of Rudy – ‘L O V E’

Brighton based four-piece Fond Of Rudy are back with their new single ‘L O V E’. The down-tempo alternative pop track combines 80s motifs and reflective lyrics. Speaking about the track, the band said: “The track represents our take on a modern slow jam. It’s packed full of lust and emotion…tuning in to that persona of missing opportunities out of fear.” If you fancy hearing the track live then the band will be performing at Carfest North and South later this summer.

Violent Shakes – ‘Take Me Like A Drug’ ft. Mickey Shiloh

Violent Shakes are a modernistic and new conceptual electro-pop comprised of Indian Joy and Tornada. ‘Take Me Like a Drug’ is their hypnotic introductory track and features the enchanting vocal of Mickey Shiloh. Speaking about the track, Violent Shakes said: “‘Take Me Like a Drug’ came to life whilst jamming on a ukulele and right away it had this raw and natural bounce that got us hooked. We envisioned this ethnic/conceptual pop soundscape so we ‘dressed’ it with sounds from very different ethnic backgrounds. It started with this typical African kizomba beat, then we added oriental percussions and Arabic strings. It’s a song about self-empowerment and sexual freedom which is (or should be) a universal transcultural issue.”

Joy Crookes – ‘Mother May I Sleep With Danger’

‘Mother May I Sleep With Danger’ is a track taken from Joy Crookes’ new EP Influence. The track was inspired by Joy’s mother’s outlook on how she lives her life, combined with an experience involving her boyfriend’s mother, who banned her son from leaving Belgium to join Joy in London. Influence is a five-track EP made up of ‘Sinatra’, ‘Bad Feeling’, ‘New Manhattan’, ‘Mother May I Sleep With Danger’, and ‘Power’. She will be celebrating the EP release with a very special launch party tomorrow at Corsica Studios featuring support Kyan and Sunken.

Hannah Featherstone – ‘Solo’

‘Solo’ is the new track from British artist Hannah Featherstone. A fine balance of pop, jazz and soul, ‘Solo’ is a beautiful offering from Hannah which showcases who she truly is as an artist. The track will play part in her forthcoming album, Comfort Zone, which will reflect her many styles. The newly released visual for ‘Solo’ was directed by Noemie Daval and is a simple yet effective video focusing on Hannah.
