It’s a much busier New Music Friday this week than last, though the headline event is still an album rather than any of these singles: Taylor Swift releases the first of her (Taylor’s Version) re-recorded albums, Fearless, in all its 4858-track glory.
In the singles department, Years & Years – now an Olly Alexander solo project – are/is back with the utterly irresistible Starstruck; my breakout fave of the week. It’s lovely on first listen, and just seems to get better and better.
Other noteworthy releases come from Majid Jordan and the divine Waves Of Blue; Slayyyter with Cowboys; best-ever The Voice winner Ruti with Daylight from her new All At Once EP; and Nathan Dawe x Anne-Marie x MoStack with radio-ready Way Too Long.
