Demi Lovato – “Body Say”
Jamie T – “Tinfoil Boy”
His first since 2015’s Magnolia Melancholia EP, “Tinfoil Boy” is the new cut from Jamie T. A bold sonic shift for the troubadour, this track is bursting with angst – a track that is propelled by an artist with so much to say. Written by Jamie and co-produced by long-time collaborator James Dring, “Tinfoil Boy” is a brilliantly frenetic reminder of T’s talents.
Angel – “Hop On” Feat. Stefflon Don

Dagny – “Fool’s Gold”
Dagny has shared her latest single “Fools Gold”. Co-written with Tommy English, the track picks up where her phenomenal breakout “Backbeat” left off. Discussing the track, Dagny said: “It was Tommy who introduced the song to Børns – who loved it. When I heard his feature for the first time, I knew the song was complete. He is a wonderful singer and songwriter and I think he gives the song a new dimension.”
Frenzy – “Drive Me Crazy”
A part of the Hackney-based I Dream Big collective (SNE, Jamilah Barry and Careless), Frenzy is a rapidly rising talent who is set to release a string of singles this summer.
