Two of Norway’s biggest music exports unite on a hot new dance track that’s just dropped. Producer Alan Walker and singer/songwriter Ina Wroldsen (she’s written number one hits for the likes of Kylie Minogue, Calvin Harris, James Arthur, Clean Bandit and Anne-Marie) have joined forces for Barcelona – a song which, funnily enough, sounds like it’s tailor-made for fiestas in the Balearics, just south of the Catalan capital. The sun-soaked soundscape is made all the more enjoyable by the la-la-la lyrics of the chorus – convenient to sing-along to once it inevitably gets stuck in your head!

They’ve recently worked together with Nelly Furtado on Love Bites, now Sweden’s Tove Lo and her pal SG Lewis have paired up again for a whole EP. Summer just got a whole lot hotter – thanks to HEAT! It’s a 15-minute, four-track journey onto the sweatiest dance floor you can imagine – t-shirts optional. On it, we’re treated to a glimpse back at early-’00s trance (hello Desire) as well as a nod to late-’00s electro-house (hej Busy Girl). But it’s the title track HEAT that is warming up to be the potential song of the summer.

Swedish entrepreneur, influencer, make-up mogul, talk-show host and occasional popstar Bianca Ingrosso is stepping back into that aforementioned occasional popstar role now, with the release of a new single. Co-written by her little brother Benjamin (whose new tune Look Who’s Laughing Now you’ve already read about in this month’s cover feature), her Boys In The Sea plays on that old adage “plenty more fish in the sea” and is a chilled-out r&b-pop jam about taking your sweet time in reeling one in. There are some big, warm summer vibes to be enjoyed right here.
