Haim – Don’t Wanna

The band’s new track, Don’t Wanna, was written with Rostam, who also co-produced the song with Ariel Rechtshaid and Danielle Haim. HAIM’s new album Women in Music Pt. III was released in June after being delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic. Their last LP was 2017’s Something to Tell You.

Ingrid Andress – Waste of Lime

A great summertime song, this carefree track by Ingrid Andres is a nod to The Beach Boys’ “Kokomo” and showcasing her signature turns-of-phrase and perceptive lyricism. For this track, Andress teamed up with collaborators Derrick Southerland and Sam Ellis alongside GRAMMY-winning songwriter Shane McAnally.

Black Eyed Peas, Maluma – FEEL THE BEAT

One of the best tracks from their new album, FEEL THE BEAT, samples Lisa Lisa & Cult Jam’s Can You Feel the Beat and brings an exciting and modern spin to the familiar rhythm. The track combines the Black Eyed Peas classic sound with the swagger of Maluma, one of the biggest stars in the world right now.

Johnny Orlando – See You

This new song from Johnny Orlando is about still having feelings for someone after a break-up and wanting to see them. The video, shot entirely in Orlando’s bedroom while physical distancing due to the COVID-19 pandemic, was directed remotely by Alex P Smith and plays on the song’s theme of wanting to see someone who is special to you and still feel a sense of connection with them in a time when we are asked to be physically apart.

Katy Perry – Daisies

This new track from Katy Perry is an anthem about surviving the slings and arrows and rising up triumphantly, even after haters try to bury you. Talking to Apple Music host Zane Lowe’s, Perry discussed the bleak origins of the song, as well as where her mind is when it comes to her next album. She said: “I wrote some of it while I was clinically depressed and trying to find the light at the end of the tunnel. And when I’m writing songs like ‘Firework’ or ‘Roar,’ it’s not because I’m feeling hunky dory. It’s literally because I am having really dark thoughts and trying to come out of it.”
