Discover the hottest collaborations and freshest cuts on this week's Notion Now playlist, featuring tracks from Bree Runway, Arlo Parks, Nines and more.

"Be The One" by Bree Runway, Khalid

East London singer-songwriter Bree Runway rivals the buttery R&B tones of Khalid on “Be The One”. A major co-sign, warranted by the star’s consistency, the track is her boldest to date.

"Blades" by Arlo Parks

Taken off Arlo Parks’ forthcoming album ‘My Soft Machine’, “Blades” is a Nile Rodgers-esque funk jam lined with the artist’s nonchalant wordplay.

"Tony Soprano 2" by Nines

Striking up more heat, Nines returned to the spotlight last week after posting a photo with Alchemist and Larry June. Simultaneously announcing ‘Crop Circle 2’, the image has sparked rumours of a possible collaboration. Nevertheless, “Tony Soprano 2” is an emphatic road rap banger made with the streets in mind.

"Mermaids" by Florence + The Machine

Just in time for festival season, Florence + The Machine drops a ‘complete edition’ of her 2022 album ‘Dance Fever’. “Mermaid” and its orchestral four-to-the-floor is our pick from the new collection of tracks.

"Flip A Switch." by RAYE, Coi Leray (Remix)

Two artists carving out their own lane, RAYE and Coi Leray’s link up is a dangerously catchy one. “Flip A Switch.” will undoubtedly earn the artists more billboard success over the coming weeks.

"Glue Song" by beabadoobee, Clairo

beabadoobee's back with a remix of her powerfully melancholic single “Glue Song”. Enlisting NYC artist Clairo for a dulcet feature, the track analyses the feelings felt when becoming attached to someone.

"One That Got Away" by MUNA

Throwing up a middle finger to those who messed up their chance with you, “One That Got Away” is a vengeful new single from MUNA. The band debuted the track at Coachella last weekend.

"L.F.O" by SBTRKT, Sampha, George Riley

We’re getting ever closer to a new SBTRKT album. “L.F.O” is an off-kilter amalgamation of jazz, soul and electronica, aided by the beautiful tones of Sampha and George Riley.

"Don't Let Me Down" by Gus Dapperton, BENEE

Teasing a new album over several single releases, Gus Dapperton returns with another feel-good anthem. “Don’t let me down again” he sings with BENEE, harmonising over a slice of psychedelia.

"20200817 Proud True Toyota" by Mac Demarco

One of 199 songs to be released by Mac Demarco today, “20200817 Proud True Toyota” is a woozy indie pop ballad that takes from various sources of his sonic palette. If you’re in need of some weekend meditation, ‘One Wayne G’ is some highly recommended listening.
