Six Stunning New Tunes for Summer 2021

As we approach the halfway point of the year, with summer having belatedly arrived and restrictions - including at weddings! - finally set to be lifted, here's a selection of some of summer 2021's best new tracks. Whether soundtracking your upcoming wedding party or simply a summer of parties and barbies, these tunes will light up any occasion.

Little Simz By Nwaka Okparaeke

LITTLE SIMZ FT CLEO SOL - WOMAN

A work of understated majesty from this absolute queen, and a stone cold contender for track of the summer, year, decade, you name it! Utterly timeless and soulful, it recalls vintage sounds of yesteryear while remaining as fresh as a sweet Sunday morning. Little Simz simply never misses.

EMMA-JEAN THACKRAY - SAY SOMETHING

Multi-talented producer and musician Emma-Jean Thackray might well have dropped the definitive summer banger with this one. Say Something is an absolute odyssey that leans into jazz, summery synth-pop and even house, but remains gloriously uncategorisable.

CHILDREN OF ZEUS - CALI DREAMS

Manchester duo Children of Zeus expand their sweet British soul vibes into the sunshine of California on this brand new cut taken from their 2nd album Balance.

CZARFACE ft MF DOOM - BREAK IN THE ACTION

Featuring a classic verse from the late, great MF DOOM, this super laid-back jam is a perfect vibe for these long summer months, days and nights.

KINGS OF CONVENIENCE - ROCKY TRAIL

After an absence of years, the wonderful Kings of Convenience return sounding exactly as they always did, and we wouldn't have it any other way. Like a long, lingering hug from an old friend, this beautiful little track oozes summertime as the three and a half minutes positively breeze by.

BRUNO MARS, ANDERSON. PAAK - LEAVE THE DOOR OPEN

Another collab that fits like a glove. Timeless magnificence is the order of the day here, as Bruno Mars teams up with the prolific Anderson. Paak to create what sounds like a lost soul classic from 1976. Smooth as silk, vibes like velvet!
