This Week on Let’s Loop
Just as we finally managed to get Uptown Funk out of our heads, Bruno Mars goes and drops an even funkier comeback single. 24K Magic is the lead single and title track to his upcoming 3rd album and in the words of the Beastie Boys (or The Prodigy’s glorious sample)…
“Oh my God, that’s the funky shit”
Not wanting to be outdone, Lady Gaga opted to follow up the immense Perfect Illusion with a surprising genre shift… she’s gone country. Of course, much like Grimes did with her country track (yup, California’s a country song), Gaga still manages to stamp her personality all over it. And it’s pretty damn great.
In other news: The Rolling Stones announced their 25th(!) album and shared Just Your Fool, Amber Coffman added more weight to the rumours that she has left Dirty Projectors by announcing her debut solo album and sharing All To Myself, and MØ shared Drum (co-written with Charli XCX) from her much-anticipated 2nd album. We also have new tracks from Kings of Leon, Johnny Jewel from Chromatics, Weyes Blood, Kate Tempest and loads more.
