New Music Friday: Mabel! Natalie Imbruglia! Griff! More!

 New Music Friday: Mabel! Natalie Imbruglia! Griff! More!

I still have last week’s releases from Raye, Jessie J and Lorde on heavy rotation; but there’s another crop of new music to pick through today, with some really decent stuff in the mix.

First up, Mabel – who clearly knows it’s Pride Month. Let Them Know is high-camp, finger-snapping, twink-baiting fun; and a great way to launch her next era. I have to say I didn’t get properly excited about her last time round, but I’m open to stanning with Album 2.

Griff has launched her One Foot In Front Of The Other EP; Shade of Yellow being its latest promo single thing. It’s a proper stunner, and after that BRITs win she’s really on a bit of a hot streak right now. Good for her dot gif!

Elsewhere, Tove Styrke shares the excellent (if very short) Mood Swings, Natalie Imbruglia is back with the lovely Build it Better, Unperfect continue rebuilding momentum with the very good She Ain’t Me, Becky Hill joins the recent slew of stars to team up with David Guetta – Remember is another banger to add to her repertoire; and Diana Ross just wants to say Thank You.
