In a week of mixed emotions, you can count on us to bring some JOY to your day, especially with these new additions.

Frankston’s own busker-turned-superstar Tones And I seems to be a little over the famous company she keeps. She’s left the party with her latest single ‘Ur So F**kInG cOoL’, flipping the bird on the way out. It’s no ‘Dance Monkey’, but it certainly makes a statement and we reckon you’ll appreciate it.

We were pretty lucky to present Melanie C with a special gift before the world went into isolation, and she’s returned the favour with the second single from her forthcoming album. ‘Blame It on Me’ delves into a toxic relationship through the lens of electronic-pop music.

Isolation kept out-and-proud singer Zak Love on a cruise ship for months, but he’s back home in Melbourne and ready to release new music. He teams up with Danish DJ-producers MCKY and Dex for ‘Way Back Then’, a track that celebrates the journey of life. We think you’ll have your hands in the air for the shiny vocals and big trumpets in this one.

Swedish duo Galantis have used their time in isolation creatively, releasing three songs in the last couple of months. The latest is ‘Only a Fool’ and it’s a bop. Along with American production duo Ship Wrek and American singer-songwriter Pink Sweat$, the Swedes bring the sunshine, sugar and smiles to your ears. This delight has whistling, bright keys and a hook to hum, and it’s made for dancing to.

German DJ-producer Robin Schulz has started a new music label, and to celebrate, he’s released a new single. ‘Oxygen’ is the first release on Mentalo Music and it features the amazing vocals of Swedish singer-songwriter Winona Oak. Robin promises to bring us a mixture of dance and modern pop via the new label, and we look forward to hearing what’s next.

If the first word that comes to your mind when hearing Letters is ‘Avicii’, then Lucas & Steve have done their job. The Dutch DJ-producers pay homage to the late producer in their new single. It features the vocals of Dutch singer Haris Alagic, who won The X Factor Netherlands in 2013. We think the familiar country-pop crossover sound will embrace you like a warm hug in a time when it’s more important than ever to smile.
