Playlist: 10 tracks you need to hear

By
Listen to our ten favourite new tracks below, including Stooshe, Jessie Ware, Fall Out Boy and Little Boots.

Stooshe: 'Slip' (out May 12)
After a brief absence from the charts, Stooshe return and trail their debut album with 'Slip'; a slice of perky, Motown-inspired pop that will no doubt see them return to the upper echelons of the charts. RC



Jessie Ware: 'Imagine It Was Us' (April 15)
After delivering a stunning debut album in 2012, Jessie Ware will repackage the set into Devotion: The Gold Collection this May. Just when we thought the album couldn't be any better, this new original track - with its swirling disco synths and velvety vocals - proved us wrong. LC



Fall Out Boy: 'The Phoenix' (April 15)
Although they've been away for five years, Fall Out Boy haven't forgotten how to write a storming pop-punk number. Their latest track features jumping orchestral riffs, Patrick Stump's growling vocal and a massive guitar-led chorus. LC



Naughty Boy ft. Sam Smith: 'La La La' (release date tbc)
The producer's latest track blends old-school garage hooks with trendy club beats, all of which is pulled together by the soulful vocals of guest singer Sam Smith. RC



Little Boots: 'Broken Record' (May 6)
Having titled her upcoming album Nocturnes, it's easy to presume that Little Boots is returning with music for the night. Latest cut 'Broken Record' does little to deny this fact with its prowling bass and church bell rings, making it a dark and strangely hypnotic pop number. LC



Gorgon City ft. Yasmin: 'Real' (out now)
Singer Yasmin provides the perfect deep house vocal to Gorgon City's latest track, which doffs its cap to the club staples of the early '00s. RC



Emeli Sande & Rick Smith: 'Here It Comes' (out now)
Following a successful collaboration at the London 2012 Olympics Opening Ceremony, Emeli Sandé, Underworld's Rick Smith and Danny Boyle team up once more. The former two have recorded a rousing electronic number for the latter's new movie Trance. LC



Mat Zo & Porter Robinson: 'Easy' (out April 14)
Following the global success of 'Language', Porter Robinson has teamed with British producer Mat Zo for 'Easy'; a piece of funk-infused EDM that critics and blogs are already raving about. RC



Snoop Lion ft. Drake: 'No Guns Allowed' (April 2)
Continuing his move into reggae music, Snoop Lion has teamed up with his daughter Cori B and Drake for his latest track. The non-violence message is backdropped by laid-back island grooves and would serve as a welcome return for the genre to the charts. LC



C2C: 'Down The Road' (out May 26)
The French four-piece have become a favourite among bloggers with their debut album Tetra, which was out in the UK earlier this month. Our favourite from the set 'Down The Road' - a head-spinning blend of electronics and distorted vocals - deserves to smash when it gets its official release here later this year. RC
