So I decided to give you guy’s a run down of my top five favourite releases of this week.
At number five we have Kygo featuring Kodaline with ‘Raging’.
The song was co-written by James Bay (this man is everywhere lately) and is Kygo’s second single release of this year. The 18th of March saw him release ‘Fragile’ with guest vocals from Labrinth and now his single ‘Raging’ saw it’s initial release yesterday. Both singles precede his début album ‘Cloud Nine’ which is due to be released on the 13th of May 2016. Kygo first gained exposure with his remixed version of Ed Sheeran’s ‘I see Fire’ which was initially recorded for the last instalment of The Hobbit trilogy. 2014 saw Kygo’s career breakthrough, with the release of his internationally recognised single ‘Firestone’, the single was widely positively received across the globe, gaining his career the recognition that it needed. From April through to July he is embarking on a European tour and summer festival circuit run. You can catch him in the UK from the 20th to the 23rd of April and there are tickets still available.
Here is his new single ‘Raging’ featuring Kodaline….
Number four see’s Benny Benassi & Chris Brown with ‘Paradise’.
The Italian DJ has released yet another single to add to his discography. With a career spanning over a decade, Benny Benassi has achieved success with many of his releases. ‘Paradise’ which officially got released yesterday sees the DJ work with Chris Brown for a second time, following their collaboration on ‘Beautiful People’ back in 2011. With no set tour planned, Benny Benassi has a few different events dotted across America and Italy. With his other latest work just being remix’s of other artists work.

Number three is Jason Derulo with ‘If It Ain’t Love’
Following the release of his album ‘Everything Is 4′ back in 2015, Jason Derulo is back again with his second release of 2016 ‘If It Ain’t Love’, the single follows on from ‘Naked’ which was released 11th of February 2016. This year has also seen him team up with Little Mix on their single ‘Secret Love Song’. The single which was officially released yesterday has already been deemed as yet another smash hit from the artist and could be a sign that he may have yet another album in the works. He embarks on his first album tours in Asia and America starting April 8th and he makes an appearance in the UK for the SunDown festival which takes place in Norwich on the 2nd to the 5th of September.

At number two The Last Shadow Puppets are back with a new album titled ‘Everything You’ve Come To Expect’.
After eight years Alex Turner and Miles Kane are back with a brand new album ‘Everything You’ve Come To Expect’. After his success with The Arctic Monkeys, Alex Turner has turned his attention back to his other musical project, The Last Shadow Puppets, seeing a more than positive response from fans after waiting eight years for new material from the pair. After the bands chart topping success with their first album ‘The Age Of An Understatement’, much to fans dismay the duo recorded no further material, but they are finally back with an album and a scheduled tour starting today in Liverpool, the tour runs through to the 15th of July and sees them hit different venues and festivals across the globe, including them stopping off at T in the Park for a cheeky wee set, which is unfortunately their only date in Scotland.
Here is the albums title single ‘Bad Habits’ along with the official video for the single…
Lastly at number one is my favourite song that has been released this week and it is Galantis with ‘No Money’.
The Swedish duo have already bagged themselves two top ten hits with their previous single releases and are hoping that this single gives them their third. They gained their international career breakthrough with their 2014 single ‘Runaway U & I’, the single was a global success with it shooting to the top of Spotify’s Global and US viral charts. June of 2015 saw their début EP released with this gaining them further recognition, 2015 also saw there 2nd top ten single released ‘Peanut Butter Jelly’ which again was a global success. Now with their third big single being released yesterday, the duo are well on their way to a successful worldwide career.
Give their new single a little listen…
