New Music Friday: Julie Bergan at the top, a Thong Song remix at the bottom, various songs in between

Song of the week:
Julie Bergan feat Tunji Ige — ‘If You Love Me’
In a week of huge pop releases the best tune of the week comes from Norwegian pop practitioner Julie Bergan. Three years ago we fell in love with Julie’s second single ‘Younger’ (both the radio version, which is like a lost Little Mix Number One, and the Oliver Nelson remix still sound totally brilliant), but she hasn’t topped it UNTIL TODAY.

Wrong of the week:
Ed Sheeran — ‘…Baby One More Time’
We quite like the idea of the Spotify Singles thing — it’s basically their version of Radio 1’s Live Lounge — but this cover is a big no. Realistically the JCY rework of Sisqo’s ‘Thong Song’ is today’s worst release, but it’s not quite as distressing as Ed Sheeran mailing one of the 250 Wonders Of The Pop Age.

Additional notes:

  • Susanne Sundfør is back!
  • Another week, another new Sia song, but ‘Free Me’ stands out from a lot of her recent releases both musically (it recalls a lot of her earlier stuff) and lyrically (because triumphing in the face of adversity via a series of extended metaphors just isn’t a realistic depiction of how everyone is able to live their lives). The song’s been released in support of #endHIV.
  • Tileyard pop entities Sigala and Ella Eyre have made a song that would have been quite enjoyable between two and three years ago.
  • ‘Roulette’ has bubbled to the top and seems to be the best new song on the Katy Perry album.
  • Careful with the new Pharrell song, the last time he did a song for a Despicable Me soundtrack it sat around for ages before boring everyone to death in a prolonged and relentless period of cynically contrived joy.
