Here's our latest playlist of brand new songs we reckon you guys will love.
1. Leann Rimes and Stevie Nicks - 'Borrowed'
Country legend Leann has teamed up with Fleetwood Mac icon Stevie for a new version of the former's song 'Borrowed', and it's lovely.
"I stopped in my tracks and sat down on the floor and started to cry," Nicks told Rolling Stone about the time she heard Rimes sing 'Borrowed' on TV in 2013. "I understood what she was singing about. I understood that the pain was real... and I understood that it had happened to me. When the song ended, I called my assistant to tell her that one day, I would sing this song with LeAnn. It was our destiny."
2. Paul McCartney - 'I Don't Know'
It's been a busy week for Macca. He celebrated his 76th birthday, he appeared in one of the best Carpool Karaoke episodes, and he announced a brand new album.
This is one half of a new double-A side from his upcoming album Egypt Station, and it sounds like classic Beatles material.
3. Nile Rodgers & Chic - 'Til the World Falls'
Disco legends Nile and Chic have debuted the first song from their new album It's About Time.
It's been 26 years since Chic's last proper album, so the album title is pretty apt.
4. Maroon 5 - 'Three Little Birds'
You may have heard a new version of Bob Marley's classic 'Three Little Birds' over the past few weeks.
It's by pop rock giants Maroon 5 for the World Cup. Why? We're not entirely sure. But it's a fun listen regardless.
5. Jason Mraz - 'Have It All'
We love a bit of sunny Jason Mraz on Smooth, and his new song is a corker.
"‘Have It All’ stood out as a song with a hopeful message to help me heal and move forward," he has said. "A song with a message of generosity - the antithesis of despondency. It’s a blessing disguised as a rap song, and it’s meant to be paid forward and shared.”
