of wonderful tracks. You know the ones: the big, instant songs that arrive from the biggest acts in music. This week is no different as, after blacking her social media out, Taylor Swift has released a new single, Look What You Made Me Do. Beck is returning with a new album (Colors) and, ahead of that, Dear Life – the super-awesome track from the American legend. It is a week where American artists are making the biggest statements…

Queens of the Stone Age – who have released their album, Villains – are on everyone’s lips. Foo Fighters have introduced Concrete and Gold’s latest offering, The Sky Is a Neighborhood. Katy Perry, with Nicki Minaj, stars in the video for Swish Swish – racking up eye-watering numbers on YouTube right now!

The British elite are not to be outdone with Benjamin Clementine providing shivers and awe with Jupiter. BETSY and Jorja Smith have unveiled incredible new songs – a rich and conversation-starting week of music!

It is always interesting considering why artists release music/songs at certain points in the year.

Given the fact summer is about to end – there is a need for warmth and something that keeps the energy and hope alive. I don’t know but I am cheered the fact heavyweights like Beck, Queens of the Stone Age and Foo Fighters have added an exceptional drop of magic to end August with – the same can be said for Taylor Swift!

I hope this continues next week and we get another selection of captivating, big-league music – I shall keep my eyes open and will report back in seven days…
