Coldplay & BTS


The collaboration between Coldplay and BTS‘My Universe’, is finally out. There’s still a video to come, so its lengthy rollout isn’t over yet. Plus, there’s the new Coldplay album ‘Music Of The Spheres’ – from which it is taken – and which is out on 15 Oct.

Lil Wayne features on a new remix of Run The Jewels‘ ‘Ooh La La’, taken from the deluxe version of their ‘RTJ4’ album, which is out today.

Radiohead have released the video for recently unearthed ‘Kid A’-era track ‘If You Say The Word’.

David Holmes has released new single ‘Hope Is The Last Thing To Die’, featuring Raven Violet.

Underoath have shared ‘Pneumonia’, the third track from their upcoming ‘Voyeurist’ album, which is set for release on 14 Jan 2022. “We started writing the song, randomly, on the anniversary of my dad’s death, and to release it exactly a year from that day is wild”, says guitarist Tim McTague. “I was in a funk and wanted to make something sad but felt drained. The song ended up becoming an audible journey of death and is called ‘Pneumonia’ because that is what was listed on my dad’s death certificate”.

Kojey Radical has released new single ‘War Outside’, featuring Lex Amor.

Following on from the recent announcement of their new album ‘Sympathy For Life’, Parquet Courts have released another track from it, ‘Black Widow Spider’. “I told [producer] Rodaidh McDonald that I wanted to find a sound that was equal parts Can, Canned Heat and This Heat”, says frontman Andrew Savage. “He was really into that and probably took some glee in having such a bizarre challenge”.

Following a string of new tracks in recent weeks, CupcakKe continues the trend with new single ‘Marge Simpson’.

Kyla La Grange is back after five years with a dramatic cover of N-Trance’s ‘Set You Free’. She says of the track: “One of the themes in my new material is a hunger for escapism and magic, of never wanting to grow up, and this track just seemed to encapsulate that so perfectly. I wanted to re-work it in a way that brought out the sadness, the way that euphoria always has its flipside, in that you know you can never really feel this good forever”.

Uffie is back with new single ‘Cool’. “The song is about being co-dependent in an emotionally detached whirlwind of a relationship”, she says. “I was afraid to stop moving at that speed, thinking there would be no ground below. So much happened on the surface that felt impressive; for me, a lifestyle of excess left me naïve, thinking there must be something deeper there. When I paused in the eye of the storm to look around, I realised it was all rooted in toxicity. Sometimes you decide to walk away, others you just say ‘cool’ and close your eyes”.

Elkka will release new EP ‘Harmonic Frequencies’ on 19 Nov. Ahead of that, she’s released the title track. “This EP is a journal of a six month period starting towards the end of last year and climaxing at the point when dancefloors re-opened”, she explains. “Not being able to see family and friends, to perform and fully express myself left me feeling like a part of me was not being nourished. Like most people, when things opened up again, I could feel and see the colour coming back into my life”.

Chaii has released new single ‘Get It Done’. She is set to release new EP, ‘Pineapple Pizza’, later this year.

Following the release of new mixtape ‘Now, You Know’ earlier this month, Rosie Lowe has released a video for one of its tracks, ‘Paris, Texas’.

Charlotte Adigéry and Bolis Pupul have teamed up for new single ‘Thank You’. Adigéry calls it “a cheeky and cynical revenge for all the unwanted, unsolicited opinions some people generously offer us”.

Joe And The Shitboys have released new track ‘Closeted HomoFObe’. It is “about people who think they’re allies, but still don’t wanna look at two boys kissing”, says Joe. “People who take it upon themselves to protect others from being exposed to the LGBTQ+ community, because they want the public space to remain ‘neutral’. So it’s not about the Westboro Baptist Church, it’s about your fake woke uncle”.

Buffalo Daughter have released new album ‘We Are The Times’. From it, this is ‘Jazz’, featuring Ricardo Dias Gomes.

Tennin has released new single ‘Totally’.
