New Music This Month: May 2021

By 31st May 2021Uncategorised

While the weather hasn’t been the best this month, we have added some great new music to our services . Here’s KVH Studios’ Head of Music, Nick Bewes, with some highlights…

It’s been quite a month for Little Mix. They became the first female group to win Best British Group at the Brits, Leigh-Anne & Perrie announced they were pregnant, and they released their first single as a three piece, a re-worked version of ‘Confetti’ featuring Saweetie.

While we are talking about The Brits 2021, Coldplay opened the show with a special performance of their new single ‘Higher Power’. The track is the band’s first material that they have released in 18 months, and was produced by Max Martin, the man behind some of pop’s biggest songs of the last 20 years.

Holly Humberstone might be a new name to some. She only released her debut single in January 2020 but supported Lewis Capaldi at Wembley before Lockdown last year. She’s back with her best single, in my opinion, ‘The Walls Are Way Too Thin’. She has described her music as dark, wonky, brutally-honest pop. And I like it!

One of the biggest bands in the world are BTS, with some amazing fans who love their music. So much so that new single ‘Butter’ was played 20.9 million times on Spotify on the day of release, while the video had been viewed nearly 206 million times at the time of writing!

And finally, the man who says he will reunite his old band (Oasis) for £100million! However, Noel Gallagher is looking back at the first decade of his latest project High Flying Birds. ‘A best of’ is due later in the year and this is one of two new tracks to be included, and its classic Noel. The video features an actor who has played a Timelord and a Duke!

That’s just a small selection of the tracks added to the KVH Studios playlists in the last few weeks. You can keep up to date with our playlist additions by following us on Twitter @kvhstudiosmusic.
