Just turn it up and turn it on: Press Play, the August edition is here!
In case you’ve been out of the loop, Press Play is my new playlist that I’ve been launching every month – aka your opportunity to hear all of the songs I’m currently buzzin’ about in one handy and convenient place.
We’re just two days into August and it’s already quite difficult to keep up with all the fresh new tunage, which means it’s time to talk about some of the very good releases of August 2019 so far.
First up, our Canadian pop babe Carly Rae Jepsen is already back with a thrilling new collaboration with EDM staple Gryffin. Also back at it already is Ariana Grande with “boyfriend” – your new thank, u next bonus track.
Elsewhere, we’ve got a new gems from Tove Lo, Ava Max, RAYE, Tiffany Young, Sabrina Claudio and Noah Cyrus. And as for the boys… they came through too. We got Lauv with an Anne-Marie team up, longtime fave Peter Thomas with his latest output, and Khalid with a Free Spirit refresh. Lastly, Mabel‘s long-awaited full-length project High Expectations is finally here – and it more than delivers. It was hard just to pick one song to feature.
Enjoy all of these songs mentioned (and more!) by subscribing to the August 2019 Press Play playlist on Spotify or Apple Music. (Missed April, May, June and July? They are all right here.) As always, I will keep updating throughout the month with even more bangers, bops and everything in between.
