There are bangers upon bangers in this month’s roundup of the best new music. Pop legend Missy Elliott teams up with star-of-tomorrow Lizzo on the wicked “Tempo”, Sky Ferreira makes her grand return with the sultry slow-burner “Downhill Lullaby”, Catalan singer Rosalía shares the party shaker “Con Altura”, and Korean DJ Peggy Gou shares the divine floor-filler “Starry Night”.
Dig deeper and you might find your favourite new artist, too. House DJ Jayda G’s debut album Significant Changes is one of the month’s best, and is represented by the piano disco belter “Move 2 the Front”, experimental musician Holly Herndon gives a taste of her AI-assisted new album PROTO with the beguiling “Eternal”, and Canadian songwriter MorMor returns with the lush, emotional “Outside”.
