Premiere: The Weeknd & Daft Punk - Starboy

The Weeknd and Daft Punk are slaying with Starboy - the brand new single they've done together and just dropped. Such an excellent track that seamlessly blends the classic soundscapes of both acts. Yeah, baby! Absolutely lovin' Abęl's fantastic vocals and depth against the robo-funk of the beat, complete vith Daft vocoder backing vocals and all. It's a dizzying song filled with starry nights and despair, love and warmth trickling down through it all. This also marks the first new Daft music since their 2013 Random Access Memories album, and also new Weeknd since his major breakthrough last year with Beauty Behind the Madness. Top marks!

Video Premiere: Róisín Murphy - Whatever

As if Róisín Murphy wasn't a genius beforehand with her music and directing her own stunning visuals. Her self-directed video to Whatever is a marvellous social commentary on the age of social media. And she's on the money as we first saw the teaser on Instagram + we've been busy with Snapchat and Facebook for work all day and squeezing in some blog writing, too. The song is taken, naturally, from her Take Her Up To Monto album and plays like a lullaby of sorts with spooky elements. The lyrics fit perfectly to the everyday stress of life in a digital age. Stellar work Ró! PS. Your emojis are amazing. <3

Premiere: Bloodboy - Keep Your Disease

Yes, yes, yes! Fantastic new Bloodboy! Keep Your Disease is an instant repeater and something any rockstar would want in their catalogue of hits! Lovin' the mix of rowdy rock and new wave synths PLUS those on point Lexie Papilion vocals and the energy and fire she brings! Her clipped vocal style plus the lyrics makes for such a fiery punch - love it. We raved about her debut single Human Female in April and we're albout this one too, as you can see, haha. Those drums tho! Fuego! Any self respecting music programmer anywhere should add this to their lists - we're sure as hell are gonna add it to our official Spotify when it becomes available. Enjoooy!

Premiere: Röyksopp Feat. Susanne Sundfør - Never Ever 

Hurrah! Brand new Röyksopp and Susanne Sundfør is Never Ever a bad thing! After Svein Berge and Torbjørn Brundtland left the album format last year and venturing into a more loosely based release cycle we're more than happy it's not the end of new Röyksopp music! This single has already ruffled the feathers of their fan base. Judging by comments ppl are upset about the more than commercial production and we can hear what they mean. It's a very accessible sound that takes part of the duo's formula and turn 'em into a, dare we say, radio hit. The three collaborated in 2013 on the magical Running To The Sea and the darkness there is lacking here. Not a bad thing perhaps as a palate cleaser for things to come. PLUS, that drum machine does things to us - so hot! Listen below! Thoughts?

Premiere: Lady GaGa - Perfect Illusion

Eight years since Lady GaGa debuted with The Fame - here's Perfect Illusion, her first pop single in three years! The last time we had a solo studio album was 2013's ARTPOP that built on her myth but felt uneven and heavy. The last few years we've had her joint jazz album with Tony Bennett and her The Countess character on American Horror Story as main anchors if a LG fix has been needed. Her return to Mother Monster sounds like a fun rock anthem, co-written with both Tame Impala's Kevin Parker, Mark Ronson and Bloodpop (Blood Diamonds). It sounds miles away from her catchiest hits and but could have been included on The Fame Monster easily. So classic GaGa but still looking to the future. Her album is still going under title LG5 and it'll be interesting to hear what this new era hold. We really like how effortless this new taster sounds like and how she still holds true to her core. Thoughts?

Mistaken for love, it was a perfect illusion...
