The Rolling Stones – This week in East London’s Hackney Empire, The Rolling Stones officially announced their forthcoming new album Hackney Diamonds, due out on October 20th. Hackney Diamonds will be the legendary band’s first new studio album since A Bigger Bang in 2005. This album will see Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, and Ronnie Wood working with GRAMMY-award-winning producer Andrew Watt, who also produced Iggy Pop’s incredible Every Loser album from earlier this year. Serving as the first taste of what to expect from the album is the rocking new single “Angry.” The eye-catching video for the track will go down a treat with both Gen Z and dads everywhere. Seemingly channeling her inner Tawny Kitaen or Bobbi Brown, Euphoria star Sydney Sweeney takes centerstage as the rock video vixen in the Francois Rousselet-directed clip.

Featuring production from GRAMMY-nominated John Feldmann, “Psycho” is packed with infectious energy, and relatable lyrics about toxic relationships that are sure to make this pop-punk anthem an instant earworm. Having already amassed 1 billion views and a fanbase of 20 million followers, it’s safe to say that Gavin Magnus is going to be around for a while.

Another Sky – It’s always good when a band puts out a song with a message, and that’s exactly what English rockers Another Sky have done with their new single “Burn The Way.” The South London band is using its platform to speak on the pressing issue of climate change. Explaining how “Burn The Way” came to be, vocalist Catrin Vincent states: “It was written after a conversation with someone in denial about climate change. It’s about the feeling of being powerless and having to run from someone’s behaviour before you take on their reality.  As much as anger is a difficult, complicated emotion, it’s sometimes the first step towards survival.” There’s more new music to come from the rocking quartet and we’ll definitely keep you posted on that.

SleazyWorld Go – Rising rapper SleazyWorld Go is putting on for his city with the video for his latest banger, “Got Me Hot.” Directed by Jerry Production, the music video was shot in the rapper’s hometown of Kansas City, Missouri. The track sees SleazyWorld Go likening how he handles his haters to how dominant NBA teams perform. “Got Me Hot” is already amassing quite the buzz and keeping the young star’s momentum going. Recently named as part of XXL’s 2023 Freshman class and an appearance at the 2023 BET Awards, SleazyWorld Go is a name that you’re going to be hearing a lot more of in years to come.

Jamie Fine – Ottawa-born singer-songwriter Jamie Fine is out now with “There You Go,” her new single via Universal Music Canada. Known for her open-book approach to lyrics, “There You Go” showcases Jamie’s ability to channel raw and relatable emotions into perfect pop hits. The instantly anthemic chorus is sure to make this one a crowd favorite. Speaking on how “There You Go” came to be, Jamie Fine says: “‘There You Go’ is about two people in two different places within the same relationship. I initially wrote the song as a demo for pitch for a 24kGoldn and Iann Dior – type artist, but once my label heard it, they couldn’t hear anybody else on it! It was a really cool experience taking a song that was intended for someone else, re-writing parts of it to fit my personal story a bit more and, in turn, falling in love with it for myself.”
