Last week, DJ Mustard’s artist Ella Mai released her new EP Ready, which sees five tracks (all of which she handles on her own). Stream Ready below via Apple Music.
After a long-enough wait, Ed Sheeran finally liberates his new album ÷, which can be streamed below via Apple Music. In addition, we’ve also included Sheeran’s remixes of ‘Shape Of You‘, which features assistance from the likes of Major Lazer and Stormzy (the latter of whom performed his version with Sheeran at the BRIT Awards). We’re definitely excited to take this album in.
In related news: Ed Sheeran revealed that he whacked Justin Bieber in the face with a golf club (during or following a wild, drunken night out). Read more about that here.
UPDATE: Also added below — a new visual for ‘Anoche’.
Last week, Venezuelan-British producer Arca announced his new self-titled album, set to be released 7th April via XL Recordings (tracklisting below); before that, he liberates a new track titled ‘Piel’.

Cadenza has been killing the dancefloors with his Caribbean-led sounds for a while; now, it looks like he’s ready to bring on another, darker (and more hard-hitting) style with his forthcoming EP Hijack. First, we get a new track titled ‘Til We Do It’, which features Prynce Mini and Bugle. Check it out below and pick up the single here.
DJ Mustard’s rising star Ella Mai is back with a new single titled ‘Anymore’, which will appear on her forthcoming EP Ready (pre-order here).
Goldie (MBE) is back. The legendary artist-DJ has announced his new album titled The Journey Man, set to be released 16th June via Cooking Vinyl/Metalheadz (tracklisting below; pre-order here). He also explained the creation of the project via press release:
I often look at music not so much as a producer but like a director. You’re drawing together engineers, performers and arrangers to create something special, something magical. It’s like alchemy. The notes, the music, the lyrics, they’re all in my head and each element has to be communicated and brought to life to create the finished track. I’m always inspired by great movie directors – people like Stanley Kubrick and PT Anderson – and, if you think about it, it’s quite a similar approach. They start off with a vision and then they use that vision to deploy the actors and the cameramen and the editors in order to create the finished film.
In addition, he’s released a track from that project titled ‘I Adore You’, which features Ulterior Motive…you can check that out above.

It’s always great to see Azealia Banks in the news for actual music. This week sees the New York artist dropping off a new track ‘Crown’, which is produced by Lunice. Not sure if this is just an unreleased cut she felt like liberating or a sign of a new project on the horizon…it’s dope, nonetheless.
In lieu of Ed Sheeran’s 26th birthday, the star artist/musician liberates another track from his forthcoming album ÷ titled ‘How Would You Feel (Paean)’…in addition, he also released a new visual that shows him performing the track live. You can check all of that out below.
÷ is released 3rd March; you can pre-order the album here.
How Would You Feel (Paean) comes out tomorrow at midnight wherever you are in the world, its not the next single, but is one of my favzzzzz
