New Music Round-Up: Kesha, Liam Payne, Jennifer Lopez and more...
Listen to this week's best new music from HAIM, Coldplay, AJ Tracey and more...
Kesha - 'Praying'
After years of professional and personal trauma, the 'Tik Tok' hitmaker is back ready to let the music do the talking. 'Praying' is a triumphant ballad with minimal production that directly addresses her experiences with Dr. Luke: "No more monsters, I can breathe again". It also lets her voice shine. Free from the autotune that characterised her past hits, Kesha's raw emotion is on full display and it's beautiful. One of the most moving singles of the year and a total game changer. Welcome back Kesha!
Zedd & Liam Payne - 'Get Low'
Zedd has a way with a bop and this Liam Payne assisted single is no exception. Expect to hear this at parties all year long.
Jennifer Lopez - 'Ni Tú Ni Yo (Ft. Gente de Zona)'
J.Lo turns up the heat with this Spanish language banger.
AlunaGeorge - 'Turn Up the Love'
The London duo are back with the feel good track of the summer.
Skepta - 'Hypocrisy'
Skepta lays down the bars that he's famous for and comes for rappers without integrity.
AJ Tracey - 'False 9'
The grime MC shows off his inimitable flow over skittering beats.
Mura Masa - 'Nuggets (Ft. Bonzai)'
Bonzai is a revelation on this single from Mura Masa's much hyped debut.
Coldplay - 'A L I E N S'
The national treasues get trippy with this alternative ditty.
LÉON - 'Surround Me'
LÉON seeks to immitate the blockbuster success of 'Tired of Talking' with another lighters in the air single.
French Montana - 'Bring Dem Things (Ft. Pharrell)'
French Montana ups the excitement for Jungle Rules with this Pharrell assisted tune.
Dizzee Rascal - 'Wot U Gonna Do?'
Dizzee proves that he's still got it with the second single from Raskit.
HAIM - Something to Tell You
The HAIM sisters are back with their first album in four years and it's safe to say that it was worth the wait. Gorgeous melodies accompany retro beats for an old school record that never sounds dated. Catch us listening to the lead single 'Want You Back' on repeat and deep in our feelings every time that 'Walking Away' plays. It's a joy to listen to hear new music from these girls.
