With A Level results day kickstarting the beginning of new chapters for thousands of teenagers across the UK, there is a huge list of new music to greet the start of university preparation or the next stage in people’s lives. As summer starts to come to an end, we look back at the past few weeks with a sense of nostalgia whilst also looking forward to what is still to come. This week’s releases are headed up by Justin Bieber, who releases Friends, a collaboration with BloodPop.
Needless to say, it’s been an incredibly dynamic few weeks for us her at The Music Radar UK. Travelling the length of both the country and the continent, we’ve been on a rollercoaster ride of festivals, album releases and new singles and this week finally sees us almost back to full speed. Leading yet another stunning list of new songs is Avicii, who makes a stunning return with the Rita Ora featured track Lonely Together. Queens of the Stone Age look set to take over 2017 with their second release of the year in track The Evil Has Landed.
The first batch of music releases each month is always exciting but perhaps none of them will be as important as this week’s list of new material. August signifies the start of a shift in the release style of material and as the days grow shorter, the music of both August and September tend to play a big role in everyone’s lives. Leading the way this week are Everything Everything who release Desire ahead of the upcoming release of A Fever Dream.
There’s a consistent sense of wonder each year around this time at the end of July which is a wonder of how quickly the year is going. As we move further into the second half of 2017, we can truly say that we can’t wait for what is to come. To say that we have had some incredible music releases already is merely an understatement and the next few months promise massive releases from some of the world’s biggest artists. This week sees music’s most loved alternative band Arcade Fire return with their fifth studio album Everything Now whilst leading the singles releases are The Killers who release Run For Cover.

Each week we lie in hope that something special is going to come from just around the corner. Over the past month it has seemed as if something special has come every week in the form of sensational new tracks, beautifully refined albums and surprising comebacks and thankfully this week is no different. Leading the way this week is Lana Del Rey, who teams up with the huge rapper A$AP Rocky and Playboi Carter for latest track Summer Bummer, the fourth track to be released from the upcoming Lust For Life record.
As the first week of July comes to an end, it’s safe to say that the summer has truly started. We’ve already had a sensational Glastonbury plus whole list of further celebrations and this week’s new music continues to celebrate the best that music has to offer. What better to celebrate than with the rightful return of Kesha, an artist who has been through such a hard time over the last few years. She releases track Praying whilst superstar DJ Zedd teams up with former One Direction member Liam Payne for Get Low.
Only a week ago, the first full day of music from 2017’s Glastonbury Festival was underway, a day which contributed to what was one of the greatest weekends of music in recent memory. As we finish June with a final list of music releases, it seems a great time to take a step back and appreciate just how great 2017 has been so far. Leading this week’s music releases are Arcade Fire, who release Signs Of Life, the Canadian alternative group’s third single from their upcoming fifth record Everything Now.
