Drowning Shadows, Sam Smith
Sam Smith calls Drowning Shadows the ‘saddest song’ he’s ever written, which is saying a lot from the guy who has penned I’m Not The Only One and Stay With Me. The new song, which is part of the deluxe edition of In The Lonely Hour, was inspired by Smith’s nights spent debating whether to go home to his apartment or out to bars to get drunk by himself. You’re breaking our hearts, Sam!
Bird Set Free, Sia
Sia’s second single from her upcoming album This Is Acting is another track initially written for Adele. Like Sia’s first single Alive, the new song was passed by the famous Brit, but gains new life with Sia’s emotional delivery of the melancholy ballad.
Army, Ellie Goulding
We’re only a few days away from the November 6 release of Ellie Goulding’s Delirium album and the singer has just dropped a new track off the record with Army. Inspired by her fans, Goulding posted a message on Instagram saying “When I’m with you, I’m standing with an army.”
Joe Jonas’ super group DNCE got into the sad Halloween spirit with a sad clown cover of Adele’s Hello. It’s wonderfully weird and totally works.
Let It Go, Laidback Luke Feat. Trevor Guthrie
It’s been 13 years since internationally reknowned DJ Laidback Luke released an album. Now back with FOCUS, Luke enlists the vocals of former Soul Decision frontman Trevor Guthrie to lay down the same magic that made Guthrie’s Armin van Buuren collab This Is What If Feels Like one of the biggest tracks of 2013.
SCREAM, Grimes feat Aristophanes
Canadian electro artist Grimes enlists the help of Taiwanese rapper Aristophanes for her latest single SCREAM. Begging to be used in the trailer for the next high budget super hero thriller, SCREAM is a 180 from Grimes’ recent release Flesh Without Blood. Such a Grimes move.
