All the New Music We've Added to Our Playlists in May
With the fifth month of 2021 comes the promise of freedom and a slew of new music to accompany it. As warmer weather is on its way, and we're finally allowed to eat food that we didn't cook ourselves, we're beginning to feel more hopeful and optimistic about the future, and frankly, it's about time. While we might not be getting back to total normality just yet, we are still finding new ways to get through — with listening to great new music being one of them.
With so many songs set to be released this month (and this year, undoubtedly), it can be hard to keep track of who's doing what. Well, that's where we come in. Every month, we round up the best of the best tracks from the UK music scene, new and old. Whether it's another one of Kara Marni's garage ballads or a hauntingly beautiful tune from Jorja Smith, we've got the songs to see you through this new month.
Just a few days into May, we've heard Jessie Ware's deluxe album, a brand-new record from Olivia Dean, and a groundbreaking new video from Little Mix, with new music from Beka still on the way.
Read on to discover the tracks that made it onto our May playlist.
