Your weekly round-up of the best new releases and emerging artists from the past week. Featuring the return of Lana Del Rey and an epic Sade cover.
Allie X: Casanova
Released back in 2016 as a demo version for her COLLXTION II Unsolved, our favourite pop champion Allie X has announced her full length long-player alongside the full version of Casanova. As wonderfully weird as she’s ever been, with a new London date for May in the mix as well.
