tmrw presents you New Music Friday, but in the only way you can be bothered to digest it; in ten words or less. This week, we have a show stopping single from Rita Ora, a taste of the great new Jessie Ware album and Taylor Swift ruins what could have been a pretty great return to form with a throw-away line about her cat.
RITA ORA – ‘ANYWHERE’
Rita comes out fighting with her best single in years.
CALVIN HARRIS FEAT. KEHLANI AND LIL YACHTY – ‘FAKING IT
Effortlessly charismatic, dripping in confidence, we love it.
FEVER RAY – ‘TO THE MOON AND BACK’
Worth the 20 year wait.
JESSIE WARE – ‘THINKING ABOUT YOU’
Jessie Ware is now three for three in great albums.
OFF BLOOM – ‘SHUT UP AND LET ME WALK’
Off Bloom have had some great singles this year.
TAYLOR SWIFT – ‘GORGEOUS’
‘Whiskey on ice, Sunset and Vine’ is a great couplet.
BLOODPOP – ‘FRIENDS’ feat. JUSTIN BIEBER and JULIA MICHAELS
Would have worked better as a duet with Selena.
MAJID JORDAN – ‘BODY TALK’
Peaked with ‘Don’t Worry We’re Going Home’
KYGO – ‘KIDS IN LOVE’ feat. THE NIGHT GAME
Kygo keeps it going with a nice pensivebanger.
MAROON 5 – ‘WHISKEY’ feat. A$AP ROCKY
Continuing to chuck shit and see what sticks.
MGMT – ‘LITTLE DARK AGE’
At least they’re still trying?
LEWIS CAPALDI – ‘MERCY’
Yes we get it, you’re miserable.
NATIVES – ‘PRAY’
Sets a mood, right?
KREPT & KONAN ‘ASK FLIPZ’ feat. STORMZY
Like you would expect, a great Stormzy verse.
HANDSOME – ‘LATE NIGHT BALL GAME’
Is this about baseball or cocaine?
HAYLEY KIYOKO – ‘FEELINGS’
‘I’m hooked on all these feelings.’ We feel you, girl.
K.I.D – ‘ELEVATOR’
The first banger about being fingered in an elevator.
LIAM PAYNE – ‘BEDROOM FLOOR’
Not as bad as Louis Tomlinson’s last single.
JAZ KARIS – ‘SUGAR DON’T BE SWEET’
Some nice acoustic guitar work here.
KEIR – ‘SQUEEZE ME’
There really is a lot going on here.
That’s your lot for this week. Great to have Fever Ray back, right?
