Katy Perry‘s new single? ‘Daisies’, yeah? Out now mate.

Charli XCX‘s quickly turned around lockdown album, ‘How I’m Feeling Now’, came out this morning. She’s previously said that recording in this way turned out to be good for her creativity, and on first listen I’d say she’s right.

Aurora has released new single ‘Exist For Love’, a collaboration with composer Isobel Waller-Bridge.

Chester Bennington’s Grey Daze have released another posthumous single, featuring vocals from their late former frontman. Here’s ‘Soul Song’.

Pearl Jam have released the video for ‘Retrograde’, from their latest album ‘Gigaton’, featuring a cameo by Greta Thunberg.

Caribou has released a Four Tet remix of his track ‘Never Come Back’. “I love that when people think of us as musical allies that they are seeing something real and genuine, not music industry artifice”, he says. “We are the closest friends – so much so that I feel like we are family – and I love that people who listen to our music can feel that”.

Everything Everything have released new single ‘Arch Enemy’. They’ve also announced that they will release their new album, ‘Re-Animator’, on 21 Aug.

Saint Saviour has announced that she will release her new album, ‘Tomorrow Again’, on 4 Sep. From it, this is ‘For My Love’.

Au/Ra has released new single ‘Ideas’. “I very often build up these fantasies of how I’d like things to happen – and inevitably end up being disappointed when things don’t turn out that way”, she says. “So really, this song is a warning to myself, haha! I’m really looking forward to seeing and hearing how listeners interpret the song”.

Izzy Bizu has released new single ‘Faded’. She says of the song: “It’s one of those weird feelings; when you’re with them you feel faded but when you’re without them you feel faded in another way; and you can’t decide if you want them in or out of your life”.

Helen Love will put out a new two track cassette release called ‘Now That’s What I Call Songs From My Teens’ on 28 May. From it, this is ‘1234 Dee Dee Ramone’.

The Keep has released new single ‘Through Portals’. His new EP, ‘Andra’, is out today.
