Elsewhere, we also received new music from Aphrose, Joshua KYEOT, Halo Circus, The Outrun, Heather Brave, Xenia Ghali, Jimmie Allen, and Dimitri Vangelis & Wyman x Brian Cross & Abel The Kid.

Whilst we’re sure your playlists are already bursting with new music, there’s always room for more, right? We want to share 13 new tracks with you – enjoy!

Jennifer Lopez – ‘Us’

‘Us’ is the brand new single from Jennifer Lopez, the incredible follow up to her most recent English-language track, the RIAA gold certified ‘Ain’t Your Mama’. Produced by Skrillex [Justin Bieber, Fifth Harmony] and Poo Bear [DJ Khaled, Usher], the dance track has a truly infectious vibe which is bound to be a hit across dancefloors worldwide.

Bird Concerns – ‘The Monster’

‘The Monster’ is the new single from LA garage rock band Bird Concerns. Engineered by Theo Karon, the track focuses on the themes of facing internal demons and learning to love the parts of yourself that other people don’t understand. Marcus Buser (bass, vocals), explains: “‘The Monster’ is inspired by my own struggles with depression, anxiety and misplaced guilt. It’s a song about learning to accept yourself and in turn give acceptance to others.”

DallasK – ‘All My Life’ / ‘Self Control’

Producer, songwriter and DJ DallasK is back with not just one, but TWO brand new singles for our enjoyment. Both ‘All My Life’ and ‘Self Control’ feature DallasK singing for the first time, and we’re absolutely loving the tracks. Showcasing different sides to the artist, ‘All My Life’ is an up-tempo house anthem, whilst ‘Self Control’ has a chilled out vibe.

Darude and Ashley Wallbridge featuring Foux – ‘Surrender’

Darude is back with a brand new track called ‘Surrender’ which sees him team up with Ashley Wallbridge and Foux. The track is Darude’s first release on Wallbridge and Gareth Emery’s revamped Garuda imprint. Speaking about the release, Darude said: “Having been a fan of the Garuda sound, like, half trance, but not afraid to go outside of it, too, I’m very happy to become associated with the brand as well. I’m excited to have the first release on the newly revamped label and having heard other stuff that’s coming out soon, too, it’s all good news for dance music fans in general!”

Nikless and Before We Go featuring Maurice – ‘Don’t Wanna Let It Go’

‘Don’t Wanna Let It Go’ is the second single from Swiss producers Nikless and Before We Go. The energetic track features vocals from Maurice and features a cool reggaeton groove which makes the track irresistible. The song follows up from Nikless and Before We Go’s October release, ‘Shattered Dreams’, a cover of Johnny Hates Jazz’s 1988 hit.

LOVA – ‘You Me and the Silence’

‘You Me and the Silence’ is the debut single from Swedish artist LOVA. Speaking about the track, LOVA said: “‘You Me and The Silence’ is about how we in today’s society constantly need to perform and entertain each other in social gatherings. No matter if it’s a close friend or someone you just met, we are immediately supposed to deliver humour, intellect and interesting conversations. All to avoid the uncomfortable and scary silence that appears when we don’t know what to say. I don’t want to have conversations that are filtered and untrue, it doesn’t give me anything. I want to be in a room with you and everything we have is the silence and that will be enough. That’s more than enough.”

Vicetone – ‘Fix You’

Duo Ruben and Victor, better known as Vicetone, are kicking off their year with the infectious ‘Fix You’. Speaking about the track, they said: “We teamed up with ‘Kyd the band’ in the studio and started from scratch. The whole song was created in that session – both the vocal and the beat. It’s not often that a whole song instantly comes out of a session like that and doesn’t change that much over the course of time. We loved working with them and all of us are very excited for this track!”

SWACQ featuring Jordiz – ‘Kayos’

‘Kayos’ is the thumping new offering from SWACQ featuring Jordiz, released on Tiësto’s label, Musical Freedom. Speaking about the track, SWACQ said: “It was a pleasure working with Jordiz on my new single, it’s a blend of 4-to-the-floor euphoric festival madness with an urban flavour, Tiesto tried and tested it and it fits very well in his sets!”

Luna Blaise – ‘Camera Roll’

Luna Blaise is probably best known for her role as Nicole on ABC’s Fresh Off The Boat, however, the young star is also a talented singer too. Following the success of her 2017 debut single ‘Over You’, Luna has now released a new original track called ‘Camera Roll’. The track is a slick bop which marks Luna as one to watch this year. You can currently catch her opening for Jacob Sartorius on his tour.

Trinidad Cardona – ‘Dinero’

‘Dinero’ is the new single from rising star Trinidad Cardona. Having gone viral with his hit ‘Jennifer’ last summer, the artist has since signed to Island Records/Run-It-Up Records. Speaking about the song, Trinidad said: “I’m very excited for the world to finally hear ‘Dinero’. It’s the first single after ‘Jennifer’ and I’ve been working hard to make sure this one is perfect.”

ROE – ‘Wasted.Patient.Thinking.’

‘Wasted.Patient.Thinking’ is the new single from 18-year-old Roisin Donald, better known as ROE. Speaking about her electric new track, ROE said: “‘Wasted.Patient.Thinking. is about looking out for number one. There’s no point in staying in any kind of relationship that makes you feel down all the time just to keep someone else happy. People can be the worst and you need to take care of yourself before anyone else, otherwise it’s just a whole mess that you don’t deserve to be involved in.”

[ SEBELL ] – Songs For Flight Delays

Songs For Flight Delays is the new EP from [ SEBELL ] and features the singles ‘Island’ and ‘FOMY (Fear Of Missing You). Speaking about the record, he said: “I spent the past two years working on this album, living out of a suitcase – one foot in Toronto, one in LA, with belongings still in Nashville from another life. The album is a pop album at its core, but it’s diverse sonically. Sometimes it sounds like pulling into the city late at night on the Gardiner. Sometimes it sounds like you’re about to doze off on a red-eye out of LAX. Sometimes it sounds like you’re at a run down tiki bar. It’s the sound of tension – of seeing where you want to go and still learning to be content with where you are at. And it’s the story of my life these past few years.”
