1. BODY TALK BY FOXES
Foxes channels her finest 80's vibes in the first release from her eagerly awaited new album out later this year. One of our favourite artists sings beautifully about letting go by dancing your relationship woes away.
2. SHINE BY YEARS&YEARS
The winners of the BBC Sound of 2015 have followed on from their massive hit King with this feel-good summer anthem. We can't wait to play this track on repeat (along with all their other songs,) when Years&Years debut album Communion comes out this week.
3. DON'T BE SO HARD ON YOURSELF BY JESS GLYNNE
Jess’s flawless vocals lend themselves to, what we’re sure will be, another big summer hit. Sadly Jess has had to cancel festival appearances including Glastonbury and T in the Park after vocal cord surgery. We hope she gets better soon as we can't wait to hear this one live.
4. COME AND GET IT BY JOHN NEWMAN
After scoring hits in 2013 and collaborating with the likes of Rudimental and Calvin Harris. John Newman has released this as the first song from his second studio album. This song is perfect for summer road trip drives (so we can pretend we’re like John at the end of the video too).
5. GOOD TIMES BY ELLA EYRE
If this song doesn’t get you excited for summer, then we don’t know what will. The 21-year-old BRIT school graduate had created the perfect song that will make you want to jump up and down, despite the heatwave.
6. HOLDING ON BY DISCLOSURE FT. GREGORY PORTER
The duo, brothers Howard and Guy are back with their distinctive sound. For the first track from their hotly anticipated new album they’ve teamed up with Grammy-winning jazz artist, Gregory Porter for this summery, soulful song.
7. LIKE AN ARROW BY LUCY ROSE
This folky song, sung in Lucy's beautifully delicate voice, will help to ease you in to the working week. However the video makes us jealous that we're also not enjoying the great outdoors right now. You can catch more of Lucy Rose as her album Work It Out is released this week.
