Already 2017 has seen the return of some of our all-time favourite artists and the debut of some serious new talent. To make sure your playlist is up to date we’ve got a roundup of new music that has been released in the last two months. From pop singles to dance albums here’s what we’ve been listening to and loving…
There is nothing more exciting than one of your favourite artists making an epic comeback and that’s exactly what Ed Sheeran did. In January Ed treated us to not only one new single but two. Shape Of You and Castle On The Hill made us swoon and marked Ed’s return to music. But the new music from Ed didn’t end there, as a special treat on his birthday, he released How Would You Feel and now, more so than ever, we are eagerly awaiting the launch of his new album Divide in March.
Pop singer Katy Perry also made a comeback this month. Her new single Chained to the Rhythm was described by Bustle as a “disco-flavoured anthem” with a bright, pastel coloured video to match.
James Blunt also returned to music this month with his new single Time of Our Lives ahead of the release of his fifth album The Afterlove.
Indie band London Grammar’s new tune Big Picture was released this month with a stunning video to match the beautiful song.
