• It’s your midweek edition of The Purge and we’re kicking off this morning with Maribelle’s new single ‘Shout’, which has been serviced to Aussie media this week. The Melbourne songstress recently dropped its official video which (as we mentioned HERE) is delivering all of the ’90s realness and the track was produced by Djemba Djemba, who’s previously collaborated with the likes of Major Lazer and Sia. i.e. Maribelle’s time is nigh.
• Among the other new tunes making their way to media this week are The Avalanches’ new track ‘Because I’m Me’, Twenty One Pilots’ ‘Tear In My Heart’, The Weeknd ftg. Daft Punk’s ‘Starboy’ and the aforementioned new Robbie Williams single ‘Heavy Entertainment Show’. Every Thursday, we bring you a little wrap of the new songs to media over on our FACEBOOK page. Perhaps you should like us.
