Playlist: 10 tracks you need to hear

By and Lewis Corner
Listen to ten of our favourite new songs below, including Kate Bush, Swedish House Mafia and Lana Del Rey.

Ellie Goulding: 'Anything Could Happen' (September 30)
Ellie might only just be making her mark on the US charts, but her absence from British radio has gone on for too long. Thankfully, the folk-pop starlet has returned with a swirling electronic ode to hope that is particularly sweet on the ears. LC



David Guetta ft. Sia: 'She Wolf (Falling To Pieces)' (release date tbc)
After owning charts the world over with their previous collaboration 'Titanium', David Guetta and Sia hope to do it all over again with their latest team-up. Complete with adrenaline-inducing beats and the Australian's husky tones, there's no reason why they can't end the year with the way they started it: at the top. LC



Mumford & Sons: 'I Will Wait' (out September 24)
The indie-folk quartet may have returned with a song that could have slotted on their debut album Sigh No More, but it only serves as a reminder of how good their first outing is. If it ain't broke, don't fix it. LC



Swedish House Mafia: 'Don't You Worry Child' (release date tbc)
Supposedly their last release for a while, 'Don't You Worry Child' leaves Swedish House Mafia bowing out on an uplifting and wonderfully euphoric note. RC



Kate Bush: 'Running Up That Hill (A Deal With God) 2012' (out now)
OK, so the closing ceremony was a bit of a kitchen sink affair, but hearing (alas, not seeing) Kate Bush on a reworked version of 'Running Up That Hill' was an undoubted highlight. What's more, the new song is on course to give the star her biggest chart hit in a while. RC



The Neighbourhood: 'Female Robbery' (Out now)
As the rock revival rumbles on, LA natives The Neighbourhood offer a moody, prowling, guitar-heavy cut that has some nicely-shot visuals to go with it. It's from their debut EP I'm Sorry, which hits digital outlets on September 10. LC



Lana Del Rey: 'Serial Killer'
Lana speeds things up - but only a tiny bit - on her latest leaked track, which hears her profess her love for a criminal. Whether this is a demo that will forever remain in the vaults or a cut from the Paradise edition of her debut album Born To Die is something we will have to wait to find out later this year. LC



Queen of Hearts: 'Only Love' (out now)
Following a spot at this summer's Wireless festival, Queen of Heats has announced that she will release an EP of new material next month. To whet our appetites, she has put out a cover of Ben Howard's 'Only Love', transforming the acoustic original into a dreamy electronic number. RC



The Cab: 'Bad' (out September 17)
Say hello to Las Vegas band The Cab, who are gearing up to invade the UK with their chart-friendly guitar pop next month. If you think their first UK release 'Bad' sounds like a Maroon 5-meets-Bruno Mars hybrid with a hint of emoshe rock, you'd be entirely correct - the band have been writing and jamming with Adam Levine, Mars and Pete Wentz of Fall Out Boy fame. RC



Unicorn Kid: 'Need U' (out October 1)
Knob-twiddling extraordinaire Unicorn Kid has been making a name for himself on the blogosphere with his own '90s inspired rave-ups as well as remixing for the likes of Pet Shop Boys and Gorillaz. 'Need U' is another anthemic twist on the club-classic albeit with his most chart-friendly sound yet. RC
