Following an entertaining halloween, we move into the penultimate month of 2017 with the return of one of hip hop’s finest groups. After seven years, the Pharrell Williams featuring N.E.R.D. return with a new single, Lemon, which features the one and only Rihanna. Making a move for album of the year this week is the hugely talented Sam Smith, who releases his second studio record The Thrill Of It All, three years after the release of his world-conquering debut.

Alongside the Canadian band’s album are a selection of stunning new tracks, all of the best have been reviewed by us at The Music Radar UK. Here are our Tracks of the Week with in depth reviews.
