New Music Friday: Mae Muller doesn’t want to be dependent

Notes on this week’s new releases:

  • Mae Muller‘s new one Dependent is the week’s best new song — it sounds brilliant and has a great twist on the “treat me a like a lady” trope. Her new EP No One Else, Not Even You, is also out today. Commas in titles are generally to be avoided but this one works well. 8/10 for the comma.
  • The only thing that could have made the Miley Cyrus and Stevie Nicks ‘collab’ any better is a “Stevie, can you handle this? Miley, can you handle this? It’s the remix, can you handle this? I don’t think you can’t handle this woo” bit over the intro.
  • Georgia Twinn‘s new song is a big moment in its own right but also lands halfway between second album Lana and first album Charli, which isn’t a bad place to be is it?
  • Hello and con­grat­u­la­tions to Little Mix, whose sixth studio album is released today. As a gentleman named Jon with a private Twitter account noted earlier this week, the last British girlgroup to pull this off was Sugababes in 2008, and by that point they were on their third lineup.
  • Kylie‘s disco album, cleverly titled Disco, is out today. Last Chance is arguably the album’s most on-brief song although I suppose disco means different things to different people. The extended version of the album shows up as Disco (Deluxe). Is Disco Deluxe a better album title than Disco? (Yes.)
  • While we’re praising longevity Shirley Bassey, the Queen of Q4, has released 70 albums across seven decades. Still no Bruce Hornsby col­lab­or­a­tions on the new one but she does cover I Made It Through The Rain, one of the most sen­sa­tional optim­ist­i­bangers of all time.
  • After several years I’ve binned off one of the features of the Popjustice New Music Friday edit — the bit where I put a total stinker at the bottom of the playlist. Most weeks I’d find myself actively searching out something terrible and there’s enough neg­at­iv­ity in the world without having to delib­er­ately look for new Jake Bugg releases. (Or acci­dent­ally hearing them if, like a lot of people, you listen to playlists on shuffle.)
