While other stations turn back time in their playlists, we’re going full steam ahead with bringing you the newest tracks from around the world.

Queen Agnes is back with a new single designed to bring some disco love to your life. ‘Fingers Crossed’ comes after the Swedish singer-songwriter spent a year travelling around the US, Mexico, Europe and northern Thailand finding herself. With a pop banger like this, we have our fingers crossed for a mega album in the near future.

Sydney-based bisexual singer-songwriter Starley is releasing her debut album, One of One, on 25 September. ‘Let Me In’, the lead single from the album, is a love song that explores second chances after a break-up. We’ve gone with the soon-to-be released remix version to bring it to life for your workday.

After coming home to Australia from Bali, Rave Radio were stuck in quarantine. The Gold Coast DJ-production duo had a hard time being locked up in their hotel room missing all the people they loved, so they decided to write a song about it. ‘I’m Okay’ is an expression of those feelings, and it shines thanks to Dutch singer Amanda Collis.

Norwegian singer-songwriter DAGNY has taken the raw emotions of a break-up and made them into a lush pop song. ‘It’s Only a Heartbreak’ is the latest single from her forthcoming album, Strangers / Lovers, and it features bouncy electronics and jittering percussion to draw you in. We reckon you’ll be bopping along.

She’s a dancer, singer, songwriter and producer, and loves to save the insects that are close to drowning in her pool. Is there nothing that Chase Zera can’t do? The Sydney-based artist has released her second major-label single, ‘Saving Bugs’, and it’s a funky bop made to keep you on your toes and a perfect song to dance to while working at home.

Lockdown has brought three of Melbourne’s most talented artists together to form botwrld. The mystery producer and two vocalists have delivered their debut collaboration, ‘Need You Here’, and it’s being heralded as an anthem for 2020. They don’t want us to Noah who they are, but after listening we reckon Hue’ll want to find out and Jamo along with them.

Listen carefully: Sigala has pinched a bit of MGMT’s 2009 ‘Time to Pretend’ in his newest release! Featuring James Arthur‘s smooth vocals, ‘Lasting Lover’ is the type of singalong dance track we expect from the British producer. However, we can’t give Sigala all the love, because the song was originally written by Lewis Capaldi. It’s a big combo and we reckon you’ll enjoy it.

German producer Purple Disco Machine has over 250 million streams across his works to date and has found fans galore with his remixes of tracks by Dua Lipa, Mark Ronson, Robert Surace, Foals, Sir Elton John and Lady Gaga. We’ll soon be gifted his second album, but in the meantime we can enjoy ‘Hypnotized’. British band Sophie and the Giants join the disco fun and we think you should too.
