Escaplist: Future Classics
Welcome to our new EscapList feature; each week, we'll be bringing you our recommendations to get you through these difficult times we’re in. We’re kicking things off by taking a look at some of the latest releases which we’re tipping for success, these are the ones you NEED to know about!
We know things are a bit rough at the minute for everyone, whether you're self-isolating, working from home or your one of our heroic key workers which are keeping this country going, things are just really difficult...and here at Arena Birmingham, we just want to help! Our aim is to ease whatever situation you're in - we want you to get lost in music - and that's where our EscapList comes in!
EscapList is our new feature which is dedicated to feel good music - each week you'll find 10 theme tracks and they'll sit in our blog page. Then at the bottom, you'll find a Spotify link where you can get the tunes pumping straight from your phone!
THIS WEEK'S ESCAPLIST...FUTURE CLASSICS!
This is our collection of the latest and greatest music which we're tipping to top the charts in the coming weeks. If you love new music, then this is for you!
1. THE WEEKND - SCARED TO LIVE
He's back armed with a brand new album, After Hours, which is packed full of banger. This is our fave (at the moment).
2. NIALL HORAN - HEARTBREAK WEATHER
The title track from his Heartbreak Weather album is DEFINITELY something you need to hear!
3. RITA ORA - HOW TO BE LONELY
Rita worked on this one with Mr Lewis Capaldi, and it sounds so so good!
4. GERRY CINNAMON - WHERE WE'RE GOING
The Scottish singer-songwriter has given us another reason to belt out another huge anthem!
5. HAIM - THE STEPS
The gals are well and truly back.
6. ONEREPUBLIC - DIDN'T I
OneRepublic need to Apologize for making us wait so long for their return!
7. ELLIE GOULDING & BLACKBEAR - WORRY ABOUT ME
Damn, this is big!
8. BENEE - SUPALONELY
The summer vibes of this track will help ease some of the stress that's going on right now.
9. AITCH & AJ TRACEY - RAIN
This is everything we expected from this combination and more. It's big and definitely a future No.1 - you heard it here first.
10. INGRID ANDRESS - MORE HEARTS THAN MINE
Okay, admittedly, this is a little slow and perhaps a bit emotional, but it's definitely a future classic...perhaps this can be played whilst you relax after a hard day. It's perfect for that.
That's the 10 new tracks we're tipping to do big things over the next few weeks and it also marks our very first EscapList. You can listen to it right here, right now! (Warning, it's a bit sweary, so if you're easily offended, probably don't give this a listen)
