Playlist: 10 tracks you need to hear
Delilah: 'Love You So'
After cracking the charts with her first major release 'Go' back in September, Delilah returns with 'Love You So', a haunting number complete with twinkly xylophone, tribal drums and an ethereal vocal that Ellie Goulding wouldn't cock a snook at. The song is available to download on December 19. RC
Drake feat. Rihanna: 'Take Care'
The title track from Drake's upcoming album Take Care sees the rapper team up once more with Rihanna. The song is a mix of hacienda piano riffs, restrained beats and classy vocals that effuses sexiness as effortlessly as Ri's strut. Take Care will be released on November 14. LC
Lady GaGa: 'Marry The Night (Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs Remix)'
We at Digital Spy were big fans of last year's The Remix, and as you can imagine, we are just as pumped for her forthcoming collection of Born This Way re-workings. One of the highlights is this swiz of her latest track courtesy of Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs. RC
Mary J Blige: '25/8'
Mary J Blige heads up her tenth studio album by doing what she does best; carefully crafted R&B with lashings of powerhouse soul. The album, My Life II... The Journey Continues (Act 1), follows on November 21. Watch the official '25/8' music video below: RC
Sway: 'Still Speedin''
Underground rapper Derek Andrew Safo aka Sway returns with 'Still Speedin'', a hi-NRG club pumper than takes no less than three seconds to go from zero to 60. While it's already popular with F1 racers Lewis Hamilton and Nigel Mansell for its nods to car racing, club classics fans can enjoy the welcome return of Loleatta Holloway's 'Love Sensation'. The track is available to download on December 4. RC
Paramore: 'Hello Cold World'
The second instalment of the band's Singles Club scheme, 'Hello Cold World' is a trademark Paramore composition of bouncy emo-rock riffs and bittersweet lyrics. The song is only available to download through the group's official website ahead of their new album, which is slated for a 2012 release. LC
Little Boots - 'Shake Until Your Heart Breaks' (Mixtape)
We'll be honest, after the limited success of her debut LP Hands in 2009, our minds had tossed Little Boots on to the heap of criminally underrated electro-pop. After making a name for herself on the New York club scene, she's dipped her toes back in our brisker waters and put out a mixtape which features Oh Land, Joe Goddard and Madonna.
Archeo: 'Mr General'
London-based artiste Archeo has described 'Mr. General' as a "quick blast of what's to come" from his debut album. The cut is a '90s-inspired electro-hop anti-authority anthem co-produced by New Order collaborator Steve Osbourne. It's available to download from November 28. LC
Modestep: 'To The Stars'
With the dubstep revolution in full swing, Modestep continue to push their take on the genre with new single 'To The Stars'. The track begins with frontman Josh Friend's haunting vocal before it explodes into a mosh pit-worthy combo of hazy reverb and stadium-sized guitar solos. 'To The Stars' is available to download now. LC
Spector: 'Grey Shirt & Tie'
Pushing on with their third single, Brit-popsters Spector will release 'Grey Shirt & Tie' as the follow-up to their autumnal cut 'What You Wanted'. The song showcases frontman Frederick Macpherson's smooth vocal over a backdrop of electronic keyboards and top-tapping beats. 'Grey Shirt & Tie' is out on December 5. LC
