Is it just us, or is 2022 flying by very quickly? Easter has come and gone, and another Bank Holiday is just around the corner. As we approach the end of another month, here’s KVH Studios’ Head of Music, Nick Bewes, to look back at some of new music released over the last few weeks that have been added to our services.
There’s only one place to start this month, and that is with the return of Harry Styles. His new album, Harry’s House is out on May 20th, and the first single from it ‘As It Was’ has been doing good business. It’s topped the charts here in the UK as well as Australia, Austria, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Lithuania, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Singapore, Sweden, Switzerland and on the Billboard Hot 100 in the USA.
Next up is a collaboration featuring the newly crowned Best British Dance act, Becky Hill, with a DJ & Producer boasting 50 million record sales globally and more than 10 billion streams who presented her the award at the Brits. It’s David Guetta of course. They are joined by the brilliant Ella Henderson for Crazy What Love Can Do, which has summer anthem written all over it.
Speaking of collaborations, few would have predicated Sigrid and Bring Me The Horizon teaming up, but boy does it work on Bad Life. Taken from her new album How To Let Go, it’s a stunning single and the video is so good as well.
Speaking of stunning videos, it’s time for the latest from Ed Sheeran. The video for 2step has some amazing visual effects and as Ed states at the beginning, was filmed in Kyiv months before the attacks started. YouTube royalties from the video are going to the DEC Ukraine Humanitarian Appeal.
Finally, it’s time for some Charli XCX. She’s back with Used To Know Me, which features a sample you might recognize. It’s taken from her fifth album in ten years, the album Crash which was her first UK number one album. DIY music website & magazine said the album cements Charli’s status as a true pop trailblazer. And we’re not going to disagree! The video for this is also fantastic!
