IN THIS PHOTO: Lana Del Rey

of The April Playlist are as varied and exceptional as they come. I did not think Iggy Pop was releasing new material and was taken aback by Nadine Shah – she is someone whose music I cannot get enough of. Lana Del Rey has unveiled a slice of brilliance from her upcoming album, Lust for Life. I am excited by new tunes from London Grammar, Paramore and The Amazons. It seems, as predicted, music is really turning up the wick. With every passing week, it gets more interesting and explosive. There is no stopping the quality music: as you can see from this week’s list; there is a whole host of wonderful songs. The mainstream has produced some incredible numbers but those artists away from the spotlight are not to be overlooked. Have a look and listen to the best (and rest) of this week’s new tracks…

There is enough to get the proverbial teeth into. April has been one of this year’s finest months for new music and continues to grow stronger. I am pumped at the prospect of yet more epic songs and unexpected moments from music. I am so glad Nadine Shah has new material and we have an offering from Iggy Pop – the man celebrated his seventieth birthday yesterday. With the weather starting to cool from next week; ensure you keep these songs close at heart and warm up the senses.
