fiery collection of Rock songs can be found on this edition of The May Playlist. Muse and Royal Blood have new tracks and both are guaranteed to stick in the mind. I was really pleased to hear new material from Lana Del Rey: she is preparing to release her album, Lust for Life. Courtney Barnett has delivered a wonderfully assured delight in How to Boil and Egg whilst the rest of music’s players have hardly been idle. I look at the songs that are new this week; the album tracks and singles that are sure to delight music-lovers of all tastes and proclivities. The weather, as we can see, if unpredictable but music will never let us down – always providing stunning and consistently brilliant sounds.

Such a busy and extraordinary week for music. I should probably stop being surprised because one comes to expect a certain level of quality from the world of music. That said, I was not expecting new songs from Royal Blood and Muse: a twin power-punch from two of our biggest bands. It has been balanced by some more dreamy and introspective work from Lana Del Rey and Marika Hackman. It is down to me to keep my eyes open for the music that will arrive in the coming days – sure to go into another jam-packed edition of The May Playlist.
