Another week, another batch of fresh new tunes to get you psyched up for the weekend. If you can believe it, we're in the 100's on 'Now That’s What I Call Music,' and there's also new singles from Billie Eilish and The Streets.
Rita Ora - ‘Phoenix’
Rita's second album has been highly anticipated by her fans, with it being six years since her debut 'ORA'. The album has been garnering strong reviews all morning, and is already the third most streamed album by a female artist in 2018. 'Phoenix' has 1.48 BILLION streams already, and it's not even been released for a full day yet.
You know the deal - a new season, a new 'Now'. Featuring all of the heavy-hitters from the past three months, the album includes Little Mix and Nicki Minaj collaboration 'Woman Like Me', and Sigala, Ella Eyre, Meghan Trainor and French Montana's 'Just Got Paid'.
Billie Eilish - ‘Come Out And Play’
Billie Eilish has come out of nowhere and has overtaken our lives. Apple's new Christmas advert has the 16-year-old singing new music in the form of 'Come Out and Play', and it's so good that you have to watch it in all of it's Christmas glory.
Take That - ‘Odyssey’
Gary, Howard, and Mark are still going strong. 'Odyssey' is the group's second studio album to be released as a trio. The album has 27 tracks to listen to, with many of their classics like 'The Flood' and 'Greatest Day' getting an "Odyssey Mix," which is likely to split fans.
Although none of the official audio of the tracks are on Spotify, you can still listen to them all on YouTube, or via the new YouTube Music app. The new album of 2018 features appearances from Ariana Grande, George Ezra, Shawn Mendes, and Craig David, among many others. Here's Panic! At The Disco covering Dua Lipa's 'IDGAF'.
The Streets feat. Chip & Grim Sickers - 'Call Me In The Morning’
The Streets have returned. Mike Skinner hasn't released new material as The Streets since 2011's 'Computer and Blues'. However, Skinner has been making music as The D.O.T., and he also released exclusives on Soundcloud two years ago.
