Kicking our new music off this week is Melbourne-based out-and-proud singer-songwriter Peter Wilson. He’s absolutely no stranger to our playlist but ‘Never In a Million Years’ is actually the first song Peter wrote as a teenager, many years ago. In its first week of release it’s also seen Peter’s best results in digital sales charts around the world.

Hitting our playlist for the first time is Melbourne-born, Gold Goast-based out-and-proud singer-songwriter-producer Noella Nix. ‘Bad Things’ is an excellent example of Aussie dance-pop that can shine with the best in the world.

Melbourne-based 20-year-old singer-songwriter Brittany Leo first hit our playlist in 2015 with ‘Starting Over’. She returns with her latest single, ‘Need It’.

Sydney-based singer-songwriter Catcall has been missing in action for the past five years while she concentrated on filmmaking. Her first foray back into music, ‘One Time’, is well worth the wait.

Norwegian production duo Stargate (Erik Hermansen and Mikkel Eriksen) have a pop-hit writing and production credit list as long as your arm. For the first time, however, they’re stepping into the fray with their own single release, ‘Waterfall’. And what better way to launch yourself than to call in a couple of good friends in P!nk and Sia to help out on vocal and co-writing duties. This song was almost a hit before it was even recorded!

And last but not least, the British dance-pop group originally formed in 1997 and consisting of Lee Latchford-Evans, Claire Richards, Lisa Scott-Lee, Faye Tozer and Ian “H” Watkins – better known as Steps – are back! Their new single, ‘Scared of the Dark’, is absolutely pure joyous pop. We can’t wait for the video which will contain the band’s trademark for every single release; a unique choreographed dance routine to match the song. As well, the new album is expected to contain a reworked track originally written by ABBA’s Bjorn Ulvaeus and Benny Anderson. We’re SO EXCITED.

Set your alarm and tune into Michael on the Six at Six for the newest songs to the mix, every weekday at 6am Melbourne time.
