Asha - Medicine

London singer/songwriter Asha's debut track "We Can Do This" was Song of The Day on the blog back when it was released. Now the Croydon native is back with her latest release "Medicine" to end the year. "Medicine was about breaking the stereotypes in a relationship," Asha explains. "Usually it's the men in control, but this? This song is about the women switching it up, about us taking charge and giving the guys a taste of their own medicine." "Medicine" is out now on Apple Music, Spotify and Google Play.

The xx - On Hold (Official Video)

Just over a week after performing new single "On Hold" on SNL, The XX have unveiled the first video from their forthcoming third album I See You. The video was shot in Marfa, Texas which is a 'very special place' for the band. The reason why isn't clear, but the band apparently recorded part of the album there. One thing's for sure is that I'm starting to take more of a liking to the song the more that I hear it. "On Hold" is out now on Apple MusicSpotify and Google PlayI See You is released on January 13th and you can pre-order it now on Apple Music and Google Play.

Bruno Major - Easily

London artist Bruno Major considers himself a jazz-musician at heart, "I learnt how songs work through learning the American Songbook," Bruno says. "Cole Porter, Jimmy Van Heusen, Chet Baker and Ella Fitzgerald and later on Randy Newman and Rufus Wainright.Those are my heroes.” That's quite a list, but new single "Easily" shows that Bruno may well be on the right track. It's the fourth release of his current 12-month long release project. “I want to put music out, a song every month, for the rest of my artistic career," says Bruno, "until I have nothing left to say. I just want a body of work that I'm proud of. That's it.” We'll definitely look forward to more music if it's this good! "Easily" is out now on Apple Music and Spotify.

Zak Abel - Unstable

"Unstable" is the first single from singer songwriter Zak Abel's debut album Only When We're Naked. The song is a lovely unique blend of RnB, Indie and afrobeat and is a great way to start the anticipation for Zak's album. Zak also recently released a remix of the song featuring Maleek Berry aswell as an acoustic video. "Unstable" is out now on Apple Music, Spotify and Google Play.

Dan Caplen - Blinded By The Lights (The Streets Cover)

Soundcloud's repeat function was made especially for songs like this. Dan Caplen's cover of The Streets' classic "Blinded By The Lights" is brilliant. It's so good infact that it's today's Song of The Day. Dan's rendition is alot more soulful than The Streets' original making the it feel alot more emotive. Play it now and then play it again - I dare you not to. Dan Caplen's cover of The Streets' "Blinded By The Lights" is out now on Apple Music, Spotify and Google Play.
