New Music Friday is here and we have put together a selection of singles that have been released today.


Following the release of stunning EP opener ‘Rabid Dog’ last month, London four-piece Palace return with brand new single ‘Make You Proud’. The track is the second cut from their forthcoming EP Part II – Nightmares & Ice Cream, which is out December 5th.

A beautifully bewitching single, the guitar driven ‘Make You Proud’ showcases lead singer Leo’s captivating ability with words. “‘Make You Proud’ is about insecurity in new love,” Leo said of the single. “Questioning oneself constantly and overthinking at every turn – but still having this incredible patience and support from a partner.” Listen to ‘Make You Proud’ HERE.

Produced by Adam Jaffrey (Loyle Carner, Tom Misch, Yussef Dayes) at Unwound Studios, Nightmares & Ice Cream EP sees the band with a sharp new focus. Beautifully hypnotic, mesmerising and full of raw emotion, the EP is the band at their very best.

BIG SPECIAL are today announcing a very special one-off live show at which they will be raising money for homelessness fund Change Into Action and launching new single ‘TREES’.

On 5th December the Black Country duo of Joe Hicklin (vocals) and Callum Moloney (drums) will be performing a very special free hometown show at The Fountain in Walsall, a pub venue known for its welcoming community-minded outlook and dedication to platforming emerging art in the area. Not only will the show be free, BIG SPECIAL have arranged for 75 six foot Fraser fir Christmas trees to be made available completely for free of charge too – or with a donation into an honesty box – no questions asked, for anyone in need. All proceeds with go to the midlands-based giving scheme Change Into Action which supports specialist charities and street teams working to change the circumstances of rough sleepers.


Only The Poets have shared their new single ‘Every God I Pray To’. A highlight in their live set, they often perform this intimate track acoustically from within the audience, elevating the connection felt between the band and fans.

Frontman Tommy Longhurst says, “‘Every God I Pray To’ is about the breakup of a once seemingly perfect relationship, and the struggle that entails when having to come to terms with it. No matter how hard you try, and wherever you search to find that solace, you’re always led back to missing that person. The song was written in 2 hours before soundcheck on the Lewis Capaldi tour. It felt right to keep it stripped back to just vocal and keys, just as it was written. All year we’ve been playing it unplugged in the middle of the venue. It’s one my favourite moments of the set, there’s nowhere to hide singing in the middle of the room!”


Rising singer-songwriter Mimi Webb unveils a brand new holiday single entitled “Back Home For Christmas” – listen HERE. It notably stands out as her very first Christmas original!

With “Back Home For Christmas,” she serves up a different kind of holiday anthem. Her stark vocals echo over bells as the momentum picks up, dashing towards a danceable chorus. Amplifying her buoyant and bold delivery, she urges, “Only one thing on my wish list, get my love back home for Christmas.” The song seamlessly jumps from moments of intimacy into an irresistible refrain. Stay tuned for the premiere of a cinematic music video to accompany the track soon.


GRAMMY®-nominated and multi-platinum selling producer Jax Jones has enlisted The Blackout Crew for a Donk Edit of his massive trance club stomper, “Won’t Forget You” alongside former collaborator D.O.D and Norwegian singer-songwriter Ina Wroldsen. Listen here.

Appearing at a house party in Manchester, Jax Jones welcomed the Bolton-based assemble to premiere the Donk Edit and videos posted online by Jones have since accumulated over 15 million views. Together, they now battle The Beatles for the #1 spot on the iTunes chart and the original track becomes the fastest growing record of the entire Official UK Top 40.


THE ANSWER are excited to announce a new video for their Nov 17th single “Wild Heart”. Directed by British director JJ Eringa, the video delves into a number of retro 70’s clips from the daredevil biker era when wild hearted stuntmen risked limb and life to go faster, higher and for longer! The video channels the essence and vibe of the track which is a self proclaimed bit of pure rock ‘n’ roll magic, a dirty, grotesquely awesome and hypnotic groove that oozes confidence and class!

Following in the vein of previous singles Blood Brother and Want You To Love Me, this killer new track is a dirty, grotesquely awesome hypnotic rock groove that just oozes confidence and class, showcasing a band that are in a great new creative trajectory.

In addition the band are also excited to announce that for the very first time they will have a female keyboardist join them on their UK November and December shows.


Baring her soul and continuing on her promise as one of the most exciting artists of her generation, earlier this month Holly Humberstone released her debut album Paint My Bedroom Black to critical acclaim, achieving a top 5 album in the UK OCC. Now, the Grantham-born singer and songwriter shared the official video for track 11 on her debut, “Elvis Impersonators”, filmed on a recent trip to Japan with a local director she found on Instagram, as she walks through one of her favourite cities, with cinematography to match classics such as Lost In Translation.

Holly says of ‘Elvis Impersonators’: “Japan is one of my favourite places in the world. My sister now lives there so it was amazing to visit for Summer Sonic this year. Whilst I had a few days to explore, we found local director Hiroshi on Instagram and thought it would be fun to film a video for Elvis Impersonators. We shot in Shinjuku, Harajuku and Shibuya and I hope you fall in love with Tokyo as much as I did whilst filming this!”


“The Parting Glass” with Ye Vagabonds is out now.

New music from boygenius, Irish folk duo Ye Vagabonds and Interscope will donate all net proceeds from the track to the Aisling Project, an after-school project working with children and young people growing up in a disadvantaged area in Dublin, Ireland, chosen by the Sinéad O’Connor Estate.
