Friday is here once again, and this week sees some huge names release some even bigger anthems.
James Blunt has released his fourth single from upcoming record Once Upon A Mind (out 25 October) in the form of Monsters. Typically piano-led and ballad-y, Blunt strips himself bare with an ode to his father and will bring this raw emotion to arenas across the UK in February.

Swedish punks Refused have dropped their new record, War Music, and it is reminiscent of 1998 LP, The Shape of Punk to Come whilst offering the freshness we received via 2015’s long-awaited return, Freedom. Ten massive tracks packed into just over half-an-hour showcases Refused’s knack for creating an instant anthem.

Grime artist Kano has dropped a live version of P’s and Q’s from Abbey Road Studios. Originally featuring on his 2005 debut album, Home Sweet Home, the track has stood the test of time and its longevity continues to impress the masses. You can hear it live yourself at Nottingham’s Rock City on 13th February.

Matt Maltese’s love life doesn’t look like improving any time soon and he’s given us full access to his doom and gloom with ‘Rom-Com Gone Wrong.’ The follow up single to Curl Up & Die retains his signature downbeat-yet-uplifting sound and you can hear it live next month in Manchester, Bristol and London.

Declan Welsh and the Decadent West are back with a bang. New single, Never Go Home, comes from the impressive debut record, Cheaply Bought Expensively Sold, and is one of the biggest indie anthems you’ll hear this year and you can do so at The Louisiana, Bristol later this year.

Dirty Hit’s alumni is one of the greatest assortments of musical heritage you’ll ever find. Beabadoobee’s latest offering, Space Cadet, is exactly why the label has hand-plucked them and is showcasing them on the Dirty Hit Tour at Nottingham’s The Bodega later this year.
