TV On The Radio
‘Mercy’
It’s been in their live sets for a while, but this heavier-than-usual return is now online, premiered in technology-savvy style via The Huffington Post’s Instagram account.

 

Katy Perry
‘Roar’
A surefire Number One return is a suitably chestbeating girl-pop anthem, co-written with Lukasz ‘Dr Luke’ Gottwald and Max Martin, ie: the team behind her biggest hits.

 

Last Japan feat. Kris Kriss
‘Darsk’
Last Japan is the recording name of Marco Guiliani, a Guildford-based 23-year-old who’s been knocking out quality EPs that touch on drum n'bass and grime for a while, though anyone old enough to recall the heyday of Warp techno should also get where he’s coming from.

 

Glenn Campbell
‘Wichita Lineman’
Out today, Glenn Campbell’s 62nd album See You There is also expected to be his last, following his Alzheimer’s diagnosis. It perhaps doesn’t get any more tear-jerking than having your children join you onstage as your backup band during your Goodbye Tour, but this re-recording of his greatest ever moment comes a close second.
