Elton John


Honey Dijon will release new album ‘Black Girl Magic’ on 18 Nov. “This album is dedicated to love”, she says. “Love of music, community, but most of all the love of self. Being true to who you are in spite of everything else and having the courage to love fearlessly”. Here’s new single ‘Show Me Some Love’, featuring Sadie Walker.

Benjamin Clementine has released new single ‘Delighted’, taken from upcoming album ‘And I Have Been’, which is out on 28 Oct. “Every now and then, we learn to try, then we learn with trials, then we earn our respect along the watchtower”, he says of the single. “Arrogance becomes the culprit of complacency, so as we turn away from what we’ve painstakingly morphed, we burn all the years of passion, patience and practice. Luckily, we are humans, so we can start again, hence we are delighted”.

Cakes Da Killa has released new single ‘W4TN’. New album, ‘Svengali’, is out on 28 Oct.

Radwimps have released ‘Suzume’, the theme song from the Makoto Shinkai directed anime film of the same name, which is out on 11 Nov.

Micah P Hinson has released new single ‘Ignore The Days’. He’s also announced that his new album, ‘I Lie To You’, is out on 1 Dec.

Soft Crash have teamed up with Marie Davidson for new single ‘Your Last Everything (Soft Crash Angel)’. The duo’s debut album, ‘Your Last Everything’, is out on 28 Oct.
