Valentine’s Day. Perhaps irrelevant with regards music: for those of us (myself included) single and dateless; it puts certain things into focus. Music always makes thing a little easier and less lonely so, seeing as V.D. is just around the bend (hope that is the only time I will say that!), I’m diving full-steam-ahead into the new sounds oozing from the mainstream. Included are new Pop bangers from Lady Gaga and Katy Perry; videos from Depeche Mode and Skott with some classical tracks from Michael Jackson and Aretha Franklin – who has just announced her retirement from music. I include a track from Blur’s eponymous 1997 album – as it celebrates its twentieth – and collect together the newest tracks from across the genres. I am sure there will be something to wet the appetite, but if not, a new Playlist will be along this time next week.

Another healthy, stealthy collection of just-released tracks and some much-hyped newbies – Katy Perry’s latest single had a rather strange P.R. build-up. Whether Valentine’s Day sees you happy (with company) or lamenting its existence; do not fear: music is an ever-present and fine compassion that always lifts the mood. That is what I have been relying on and have not been let down. I am pumped to find what the next week holds in store – for music and new albums – and will ‘report’ back next Saturday.
