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.
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.
