It’s been a wall-to-wall week full of new music releases … and just ahead of THEHOTLIST 42 becoming available to stream on Apple Music, we’re about to run down the most notable of them …
Buckle up! …
… and kicking us off this Friday is the brand new sophomore album from New Jersey-born, synth-pop queen: Halsey.
Dropping new track Strangers (feat. solo riser, Lauren Jauregui) for listeners to wrap their ears around – just a week ago, Hopeless Fountain Kingdom arrives as the awaited follow-up to her breakout debut album: Badlands – that (among others) spawned hits: New Americana and Colors.
Complete with cover art provided courtesy of 1998 PlayStation game, LSD, the Infectious, Atlantic-signees made serious waves when they first pulled the wraps off their explicit single: In Cold Blood, during Zane Lowe’s breaking show – last month.
Closely following it up with 3WW, (and more recently: Adeline), the recording’s soothing and laid-back vibe will ultimately aim to do exactly what it says in the tin, despite lasting only 38:59 minutes across 8 tracks…
Dave Grohl and gang all but broke the internet Thursday afternoon when his band Foo Fighters unveiled their first single release, in over two years.
Seeing its worldwide premiere during Lowe’s breaking show on Beats 1 – earlier this week, Run arrives as a mid-to-heavy offering from the Seattle, WA rockers, with one listener describing the new sound as “loud and alive.”
Also making some serious noise this weekend: Dua Lipa.
Originally signing on with Warner Bros. Records at the back end of 2015, the YouTube prodigy and internet dream-pop sensation has today officially dropped her debut album.
Now available to stream in full the 17-track self-titled recording features a number of singles that have already made it big here in the UK, including THEHOTLIST-featured: Blow Your Mind (Mwah), Hotter than Hell and Be the One …
Those of you looking for more background on Lipa’s rise to fame will want to head over to Apple Music where the service’s editors have this morning put together: ‘The Dua Lipa Story,’ which uses both quotes and experiences from the artist herself – alongside highlighting some of her most-favourite influences.
Our last pick perhaps needs little to no introduction, given he was a former member of Manchester-forged Oasis.
Rather than bore you with the details, we think it’s probably best to let the single do the talking.
