Say goodbye to 2020 with these brand-new tunes to Australia’s most uplifting music mix.

Earlier this year, out-and-proud Troye Sivan released his fifth EP, In a Dream. Its lead single, ‘Easy’, was well received by the Aussie singer-songwriter’s fans and warmly welcomed to JOY’s playlist. The song has had a rework thanks to American country singer-songwriter Kasey Musgraves and British producer Mark Ronson. Along with a brand-new verse written by Kasey comes a disco-pop beat to give it a little something extra.

Janet Jackson went platinum in 1997 with her single ‘Together Again’. Local gay singer (and soon to be Celebrity Apprentice) Anthony Callea has teamed up with Aussie singer-actress (and Masked Singer Australia winner) Bonnie Anderson to cover the song and give it a summer dancefloor feel.

Another Masked Singer Australia winner joins the additions this week, as Cody Simpson swaps his guitar for some synths. The Aussie heartthrob has joined Swedish production duo NAIROBI for ‘High Forever’. Being old mates, the trio decided it was time to write a song – and thank goodness they did. With a Sweden-meets-California feel, this one is sure to land on your summer playlist.

Twenty-five years ago, out-and-proud American DJ-producer Mark Picchiotti worked with singer Suzanne Palmer for the first time. That initial release, ‘There Will Come a Day’, became a disco hit, and their newest should hit the spot too. ‘Love Reaction’ is everything you could want in a disco bop and we think you’ll be dancing along.

Taylor Swift‘s ninth album, evermore, dropped last week to everyone’s surprise. The album’s lead single is ‘willow’ and it had a bit of a remix as a present for TayTay’s birthday (13 December). Swedish producer Elvira Anderfjärd added some sparkle to create the ‘dancing witch version’, which you’ll be hearing for your workday.

American singer-songwriter Gwen Stefani is back and she’s released ‘Let Me Reintroduce Myself’ to celebrate. Written while in quarantine, the new single has a reggae-rock feel to it that should bring back memories of No Doubt. We think you’ll appreciate the fun vibe of this one.

In case you needed reminding of how quickly time flies, it’s been twenty years since Coyote Ugly exploded onto our cinema screens. LeAnn Rimes provided the epic soundtrack for the movie, and its biggest song has been remixed for the anniversary. ‘Can’t Fight the Moonlight’ has been given the Dave Audé treatment, and we’re excited to have a JOY staple back on the scene. We’ll be lining up the movie on a streaming service, grabbing a bowl of popcorn and reliving this classic during the summer downtime – why not join us?

Timmy Trumpet Cold (SINPHONY / SPINNIN) MARSHES Beaches (IND) Studio Killers Jenny (WMA) Boo Seeka Never Enough (DISRUPT MUSIC GROUP)

The sun’s out, so turn your radio (or smart speaker, phone, computer, TV) up and enjoy these brand-new tunes.

There’s a frosty reception in store for someone, but Australia’s Timmy Trumpet isn’t going to spill the goss. ‘Cold’ is the latest release from the DJ-producer-trumpeter’s debut album and it’s a great example of a well-produced, radio-friendly, pop-dance crossover.

Sydneysider MARSHES burst onto the scene last year with her debut single, ‘M.I.A.’, and continued the ride this year with two further releases and shows galore. Her latest single, ‘Beaches’, was written last year but was able to be brought to life in 2020 thanks to a special COVID-19 grant. We’re happy it’s here because the song’s a bright, playful take on the longing for a long-distance love.

‘Playful’ is an excellent adjective for Danish-British-Finnish virtual band Studio Killers. The very animated (and pansexual) Chubby Cherry, Goldie Foxx, DJ Dyna Mink, and manager Bipolar Bear have recently become TikTok stars thanks to users’ discovery of their 2013 release, ‘Jenny’. In the space of one week, nearly half a million users had included the track in their content – and the numbers keep climbing. With accordion, a catchy chorus and a queer love story, we couldn’t say no to making it part of your daytime.

Sydney-based electropop duo Boo Seeka are bringing the summer cool with their newest. ‘Never Enough’ is the third single from Ben and Michael’s second album, due next year. It’s a sun-drenched bop that is perfect for playing poolside while you relax on a banana lounge and sip a cocktail. We reckon you’ll love it.

We’re painting the airwaves rainbow this week as we celebrate our 27th birthday.

On Friday, Japanese-British singer-songwriter Rina Sawayama will be celebrating the success of her debut self-titled album by releasing a deluxe version with an extra disc. The first single from this second CD is ‘LUCID’, produced by BloodPop. The bisexual-pansexual singer has turned the banger dial up to extreme with this one, and we reckon you’ll be dialling up your dancing in response.

British group Steps have been all over the Australian media since the release of their sixth studio album, What the Future Holds, last week. ‘To the Beat of My Heart’ is the third single from the album and channels the feel-good sounds that Claire, Faye, Lee, Lisa and out-and-proud H are famous for.

Hong Kong-born, Melbourne-based Summer Luk has just dropped a remix that will take you back 40 years. ‘Masterpiece (80s Remix)’ is the latest from the transgender singer-songwriter and is lifted from her forthcoming debut album.  It’s full of synthy goodness and the perfect addition to your workday.

Bright Light Bright Light has released the fourth single from his latest album, Fun City. ‘Good at Goodbyes’ has the gay Welsh singer-songwriter teaming up with Andy Bell, who you’ll know best as the lead singer of English group Erasure. This song is all about the love you’re not quite ready to say goodbye to – and we think you’ll want to be holding on to this song as long as you can.

Self-described ‘queercore recording artist’ Willing has wound up a year of single releases with his second EP, Pure Romance. The Melbourne-based singer-songwriter has wrangled tracks from opposite ends of the musical spectrum for the album, and ‘Soft Touch’ is one of them. Already a beautiful track, it’s been given a dance lift thanks to fellow Melburnian Lighthouser.

English DJ-producer Nathan Dawe found musical success this year with his second single, ‘Lighter’. The follow-up is ‘No Time for Tears’, a house banger that we think will hit the mark. It’s made even more perfect thanks to vocals from British girl group Little Mix and is an instant singalong bop, ready for summer.

The world might be dragging its way to the finish line for 2020, but the release of new music is certainly not slowing.

Miley Cyrus is due to release her seventh album on Friday and she’s teasing us with a pop-rock banger in the meantime. ‘Prisoner’, the second single from Plastic Hearts, sees the queer singer-songwriter team up with British artist Dua Lipa. It’s all angst and drama, and we’re here for it.

With Ava Max‘s debut album, Heaven & Hell, becoming a top 10 hit in Australia, it’s time for a deluxe reissue. ‘My Head & My Heart’ is the new single on the revised album; it samples the 2000 hit from ATC, ‘Around the World (La La La La La)’. We think you’ll love the familiarity, along with the big fist-punching chorus.

The new year will see the cinematic release of Music, the directorial debut of Aussie singer-songwriter Sia. The film’s soundtrack album – Sia’s eighth studio album – is due to drop on 12 February and ‘Hey Boy’ is the third single from it. At first listen, you may not recognise the bisexual singer, but give it a few more goes and you’ll hear her trademark tone and style.

While we wait with hope for a new album from JOY favourite Samantha Jade in early 2021, the Aussie singer-songwriter has dropped ‘New Boy’, a song about the spark that comes from new beginnings. We’re digging the R&B flavour of this bop, which showcases Sammi’s bright vocals perfectly.

Out-and-proud Aussie singer-songwriter DYLAN spent lockdown making music. In fact, he worked with The Potbelleez’ Ilan Kidron via video to write ‘Anyone Like You’ and recorded the vocals in his bedroom. While the making was peak 2020, this is a solid banger that we reckon you’ll enjoy well into the new year.

Australian singer-songwriter GRAACE found inspiration for her new song in the honeymoon phase of a new relationship. ‘You Do You’ is a grungy morsel of pop delight, with an earworm of a chorus. Give it a few listens and you’ll also feel the energy that GRAACE feels when she meets someone and ‘falls for personalities rather than looks or gender’.

The drama and pain of a breakup is the focus of THE (S)EX TAPES [Shot By My Ex], the second album from FLETCHER. ‘Bitter’ is the lead single from the album; it sees the queer American singer-songwriter teaming up with Australian DJ-producer Kito. This R&B-infused release has recently been reworked by Trevor Daniel, but we reckon you’ll love the original as much as we do.

Dutch DJ Sam Feldt has been pumping out the bops lately ahead of his new EP, Home Sweet Home. Musical big-hitters Marwen Tlili, Gia Koka and Joel Stouffer, aka Karma Child, have teamed up with the hitmaker to drop ‘The Best Days’. This brightly decorated dance romp is what we need after a sullen 2020, and sublime vocals from Dutch singer Tabitha make it that much better.

The Weeknd has made 2020 his own by charting around the world with his fourth album, After Hours. Amazingly, the Canadian singer didn’t land any Grammy nominations this year for his work, even with his American platinum and diamond certifications. Australia is still lapping up the album, so we’re excited that a fourth single from it has dropped. ‘Save Your Tears’ is quintessential Weeknd, full of melodic toplines, punchy percussion and synthy beats to bring it together.

A relationship has Eves Karydas hooked and she just can’t shake it off in her new single. ‘Get Me So High’ is the follow-up to the Australian’s hit ‘Complicated’, and it’ll get you addicted too. We reckon you’ll be hearing this bop a lot over summer and loving every minute.

Stay ahead of the pack with these brand-new tunes hitting JOY daytimes.

Kieran Lancini made waves in Tamworth after winning Star Maker in 2002, and then went to London to try to make it big. The Queenslander ended up putting his music career on hold, but made a comeback earlier this year with the release of ‘The Reason’. The comeback continues with a country-pop crossover remixed by a Melbourne favourite. ‘I Need You’ goes from being a beautiful ballad to a party starter, thanks to out-and-proud DJ Argonaut.

While Melbourne was in lockdown, Tones And I was writing. From that came ‘Fly Away’, a song about chasing your dreams and finding genuine happiness. It has all the hallmarks of a Tones And I hit, along with a subtle change in instrumentation, and we think you’ll adore it.

Ghanaian-Australian sister duo Kinder have used a childhood trip to Ghana as the inspiration for their brand-new banger. ‘Come Along’ will take you to the streets of the African nation, with sounds of spinning bottles and feet pounding concrete paths woven throughout it. This song, which features Sydney-based artist A.GIRL, erupts with sounds of joy and celebration and is sure to be a summer anthem.

Swedish duo Vi. have been creating quite a buzz locally with their new release. ‘Supposed to Be’ is an upbeat electro-pop track co-written by Aussie legend Tania Doko. Per Berglin and Adrian Bellan feature fellow Swede VAALEA on vocals for a song about the reality of relationships. We think you’ll love it.

Out-and-proud American DJ-producer Mark Picchiotti has taken his feel-good funk to a brand-new label. ‘I Got U’ is one of the first releases on Club Studio 54’s new imprint, and it’s exactly what you would have heard in a 70s summer disco. The song features fellow out-and-proud American singer Javi Star and DJ-rapper Amani Jae, who add a touch of disco cool.

This week’s additions end with a bang thanks to Joe Stone. Following up from his last banger, ‘Superstar’, the Dutch DJ has dropped ‘Feeling Dynamite’, which does exactly what it says on the box. It’s a toe-tapping delight, made even better thanks to the vocals by Ally Brooke, who you might know best as a past member of Fifth Harmony. We think your ears will explode with glee when this blasts out of your speakers.

Big tunes abound in this week’s newest to JOY’s uplifting music mix.

New Zealand four-piece band Alae, fronted by gay singer-songwriter Alex Farrell-Davey, have dropped a brand-new song just in time for summer. ‘Frozen in LA’ is the follow-up to their Lucy’s Mix Tape EP. We’ve gone with the Clicks remix to give it an extra punch for daytimes.

While we wait to return to the dance floor, Sophie Ellis-Bextor has covered an Alcazar favourite. ‘Crying at the Discotheque’ is lifted from the English singer-songwriter’s forthcoming greatest hits album, Songs from the Kitchen Disco: Sophie Ellis-Bextor’s Greatest Hits, due Friday. This has all the sparkle of the original, coupled with Sophie’s trademark vocals. It’s a heap of fun.

The end of an unhappy relationship is the inspiration for the latest release from Little Mix. ‘Sweet Melody’ is the fifth single from the British girl group’s sixth album, Confetti, and delivers all the pop goodness you’d expect from them.

It’s time to get dancing to a worldwide collab that has already had over 11 million YouTube views. Dutch-Moroccan DJ-producer R3HAB has teamed up with Now United, a group of 16 singers and dancers from 16 countries. Sydney’s Savannah Clark is one of the Uniters, who formed in 2017 under the supervision of Idol franchise creator Simon Fuller. The song combines pop, dance and Middle Eastern flavour, and we reckon you’ll be all over this one.

COVID lockdowns have allowed queer singer-songwriter Jax Anderson to dust off some demos and make them sparkle for a new EP, BEDROOM B SIDES: VOLUME 1. One of those refreshed demos is ‘IN THE MORNING’, which the Detroiter explains as being ‘a manifesto for following your gut and doing what is right’. It’s a bright, jangly ditty that we think will bring a smile to your face.

Dutch DJ-producer Oliver Heldens has just launched a new label, OH2. To celebrate, he’s released a banger of a track alongside American duo Party Pupils. The punchy synths in ‘Set Me Free’ will get you up and moving, while the vocals from American singer (and one half of Party Pupils) MAX add a touch of sexiness.

Back in 2005, counting to four was all the rage thanks to Princess Superstar‘s massive single ‘Perfect’ (and its 2007 rework with Mason). Spain-born, Sydney-based DJ Supermini and fellow Sydneysider Frankie Romano have thrown house at the classic, giving it a facelift for 2020. Big keys and chords for days make ‘Perfect’ perfecter and we think you’ll love it.

Take a breath and enjoy something brand-new from a JOY favourite. Darwin-born, LA-based singer-producer VASSY has teamed up with Dutch producer Outgang and German duo TwoWorldsApart for ‘OXYGEN’, an uplifting dance bop. The energy will course through your veins when you take this one in!

We have a bumper list of new tunes to bring a lift to your workday.

British group Steps have delivered an ABBA-esque banger to bring some joy to your ears. ‘Something in Your Eyes’ was originally released by Jenny Silver in 2011 as an entry in Melodifestivalen, Sweden’s Eurovision selection competition. This version retains all the glitter of the original, and adds even more.

It’s all about the 80s for Aussie duo Client Liaison, and their newest has all the synthy goodness we know them for. ‘Intervention’ was written, recorded and produced remotely during lockdown and is a song of resilience. Celebrate all that we’ve achieved together while you listen to this bop.

Peking Duk have already had a big 2020, having performed for Fire Fight Australia, releasing solo material, and telling Australia to stay at home. Not resting on their laurels, Adam Hyde and Reuben Styles have teamed up with British rock band The Wombats to drop ‘Nothing to Love About Love’. While it might not look like a banger on paper, we reckon you’ll love this.

Most Australians would know Noah Kahan from his 2018 hit Hurt Somebody, but the American singer-songwriter has since had some local success following his debut album, Busyhead. He surprised fans with a follow-up EP, Cape Elizabeth, and brought a smile to our faces with the release of his brand-new single. ‘Pride’ features American singer-songwriter and YouTuber mxmtoon, who identifies as ‘a young bisexual woman of colour from a family of immigrants’. We think you’ll appreciate the beauty of this song.

Even though the pandemic stopped Perth’s WasteLand from moving east, it didn’t stop him dropping some solid tunes. Teaming up with fellow Perthian Sydnee Carter, the DJ-producer has released ‘Grid’, a song about the fantasy of ‘wanting to run away with someone and let them take you off the grid to escape from everything going on in life’. It has the feel of an 80s hit and is made to sing along to.

Italian production trio Meduza had a massive hit last year with ‘Piece of Your Heart’, and they’re hoping to recreate this success with their new single. ‘Paradise’, which features Irish singer Dermot Kennedy, has the percussion and drops of a house banger. This one is hot and made for physically distanced summer parties.

Mystery Aussie trio botwrld have released ‘Ready for Love’, all while being locked down in Melbourne. We’ll let them explain the story behind their second single:

‘Ready for Love’ is a song that explores the self-acceptance that must occur before being able to love another individual. The three of us have experienced levels of insecurities and detachments in our own selves growing up, and know how hard it can be for people to learn to love themselves. We have also grown up with close friends and family members from the LGBTIQ+ community who systematically weren’t allowed to ‘love’ one another. Witnessing their pain first hand, we knew we weren’t the only ones feeling this struggle. The song is a celebration of the unifying nature of love, reflecting this acceptance of ourselves – we aim to help others to accept themselves and find true love in their own lives.

Shine up your mirror ball for the third single from SG Lewis‘s forthcoming debut album. Thanks to the British singer-songwriter-DJ’s study of the era, ‘Feed the Fire’ has disco at its core. The single features American singer Lucky Daye and comes ahead of the release of times in February next year. Close your eyes and let flares, big hair and polyester invade your imagination.

After a sweaty night at the disco, something relaxing is in order. Let Swedes Icona Pop and Americans SOFI TUKKER take you to the sauna with ‘Spa’. This cheeky, steamy romp came to be after the duos jammed together for the first time. Grab some birch twigs and a few friends and jump in the tub to enjoy this one.

‘Younger Self’ is the debut single for Melbourne-based singer-songwriter Caitlin Min Fa. The song is a message to the younger Caitlin to embrace life more, and its upbeat pop feel certainly delivers the positivity. We are looking forward to what’s to come from Caitlin, especially since she’s inspired by pop, ballads and gospel!

Sgt Slick The Night the Lights Went Out (VICIOUS) Tigerlily ft AYDAN Me, You & Tequila (ISL/UMA) Bombs Away Clouds Above (HUSSLE) Marshmello & Imanbek ft Usher Too Much (SME) DVBBS ft Quinn XCII West Coast (ULTRA) Matt Consola & Aaron Altemose ft Brenda Reed Every Moment (Dirty Disco Airplay Mix) (SWISHCRAFT)

It’s time to celebrate Melbourne being out of COVID lockdown with these amazing new tunes to the daytime line-up.

Sgt Slick has followed up his ABBA cover hit with a nod to disco. The Melbourne-based DJ-producer has dropped ‘The Night the Lights Went Out’, which samples The Trammps’ 1977 release ‘(The Night The Lights Went Out In) New York City’. It’ll get you boogieing in no time.

Sydney-based DJ-producer Tigerlily has continued to move between pop and dance in her latest. ‘Me, You & Tequila’ features AYDAN, who you might know better as Aydan Calafiore, the Melbourne-based singer who was in the top 4 of The Voice Australia in 2018. This one has a hook that will implant itself in your head.

Everyone loves a bit of Whitney Houston. The Gold Coast’s Bombs Away have shown just how much they love her in their newest. Putting their own spin on the classic 1985 hit ‘How Will I Know’, ‘Clouds Above’ has the brotherly DJ-production duo bringing all the feelgood parts of the song together in a new way. We reckon you’ll be digging this one.

American DJ-producer Marshmello has teamed up with an Eastern European producer for something new. Best known for his remix of Saint Jhn’s ‘Roses’, Kazakh DJ-producer Imanbek has helped to create ‘Too Much’. Usher provides added flavour for a song that we think you’ll want to jam to.

Funky, cool and catchy are excellent words to describe ‘West Coast’. The latest track from Canadian duo DVBBS, featuring American singer-songwriter Quinn XCII, is the type of upbeat, singalong gem that you’d expect to hear during your workday.

Out-and-proud American DJ-producers Matt Consola and Aaron Altemose have reworked Janice Robinson’s empowerment ballad, ‘Every Moment’, into a club banger. Featuring the vocals of San Fran’s Brenda Reed, this track is made for dancing to. To give it even more of a lift, we’ve gone with the Dirty Disco remix – we reckon you’ll appreciate it!
