It’s New Music Friday, which means there’s loads of new songs out. Here are the highlights of the day’s new tracks.

See the New Music section for full selection of tracks and albums featured this week.

Nialler9 Weekly Playlist:


James Blake

Say What You Will

James Blake marks his fifth studio album Friends That Break Your Heart (out September 10th) with ‘Say What You Will’, a gentle spun song with a video starring Finneas, playing the comparative rising star.

The album will feature SZA, JID, SwaVay and Monica Martin.

“The song is about finding peace with who you are and where you’re at regardless of how well other people seem to be doing. Comparison really is the thief of joy.”



No Caroline

This is an absolute bop from the York-based rapper ATO which switches up into a drum and bass second half.




Dave’s new album We’re All Alone In This Together is a step up on first listen and ‘Verdansk’ hit immediately.


Patrick Cowley, Sylvester

Menergy (Purple Disco Machine Remix)

A classic Cowley and Sylvester track gets a Purple Disco Machine makeover.


Benny Atlas

Next to Me (feat. Shiv)

English R&B artist Benny Atlas enlists rising Irish vocalist Shiv on this bumping new tune.


Carlton Doom

Binmen Of The Apocalypse

A big dirty dance track ushering in the excitement of an imminent Carlton Doom set at AVA Festival this September in Belfast.


Percboi 3000, HY:LY

Not The Same

I recently featured Belfast artist HY:LY and her track ‘Secrets’ in Irish tracks, and today’s Release Radar threw up this collaboration with fellow Belfast producer Percboi 3000.



How Does The Story Go?

Let’s start a band and make no money and watch our friends get on with their lives – The song. Sprints new track is out now on Nice Swan Records.

“Friends are emigrating, buying houses, growing older and maturing, whatever that means, and sometimes you feel stuck. It feels like the world is spinning and moving around you, and while there is nothing else I’d rather be doing than playing music with my adopted family, sometimes you can’t help but feel left behind.”

Cork R&B artist Jena Keating is back on the collaboration vibe.



Finger Pies

The opening track from Anika’s first album in 8 years Change (Invada Records/Sacred Bones) pairs the Berlin-based British artist’s Nico-esque voice with psych and kraut rhythms




Bebhinn & Taylor aka SYLK are back with this freeky electro banger.

“It’s about the feeling of being in a new city like Berlin, Amsterdam, Europe but you feel like you have already been there before, getting ready to go out. feeling confident, feeling freaky. That feeling of clubbing and never wanting it to end. We missed this feeling so much during the Pandemic and wanted to create something that would remind us of these nights.”
