it is a good time to start looking at the songs and albums that will be released this month. In the first edition of my Playlist series, I look at tracks (from albums) that are out now – or the next few weeks – and those songs omitted from the last couple of months’ selections – maybe slipped me by or were too hidden. In addition, there are a few tracks that have already appeared on this page: either because they have an official video out or are getting a single release. Whatever the reason, sit back and investigate the first instalment of January’s best and brightest new music.

It is a great and interesting start to the year and it already seems 2017 will yield a lot of fantastic music and stunning albums. London Grammar (photoed above) have come back and unveiled a new track – who knew they’d be releasing material this year?! – and it is only a matter of weeks before music’s heavyweights start teasing songs from their forthcoming albums. It will be good to see music step up to the challenges and expectations of 2017: following a hard and strange 2016 we are all looking for some comforting, soul-enriching music. January is already shaping up to be a good month so keep your eyes out for the wonderful songs that will be dropping in the coming days.
