Zedd and Maren Morris


Zedd and Maren Morris are back together again with new single ‘Make You Say’, also featuring Beauz. “I loved working with Zedd again on ‘Make You Say’ after such a thrill ride with [2018 single] ‘The Middle’’”, says Morris. “It’s such a vibey melody and making the music video was definitely a first for me as far as choreography and animation go. The fans are gonna flip”.

MIA has released new single ‘Popular’.

Macklemore has released new single ‘Maniac’, featuring Windser. “The first time I heard Windser singing the hook on ‘Maniac’ I fell in love with it”, says the rapper. ”It’s infectious and relatable and I couldn’t get it out of my head. We’ve all been in relationships that maybe don’t feel healthy all the time, but we still love that person and are dependent and addicted to that love. It’s universal. ‘Maniac’ is that love story”.

Sam Ryder has released new single ‘Somebody’. But what is the song inspired by? Well, he says: “’Somebody’ is inspired by YOU! All of the kindness, positivity and joy we’ve experienced so far this year. Ultimately it’s about the joy of giving love and experiencing love”.

Loyle Carner has announced that he will release his third album, ‘Hugo’, on 21 Oct.

To mark what would have been Joe Strummer’s 70th birthday, previously unreleased song ‘Fantastic’ has been released.

Congo Natty has released two new tracks, ‘Dragon Slayer’ and ‘Binghi Man’. His first album since 2015, ‘Ancestorz (Rootz Of Jungle)’, is out this week.



After their six night run at Wembley Stadium last week, Coldplay have announced new UK dates next summer, with three shows in Manchester and Cardiff in May and June. Tickets go on sale on Thursday.

Muse have announced UK tour dates in June 2023, finishing up at Milton Keynes Bowl on 25 Jun. Tickets on sale on Friday.
