Today, as the pre-order launched for her new album, Loner, Alison Wonderland shared the track “New Day” and the accompanying video. After coming through a period of darkness, “New Day” is the sound of Alison falling in love with life and the potential each day holds. The song, which she wrote and produced, seamlessly melds acoustic and ambient elements to create a cinematic soundscape that sets the stage for an illuminating journey.
Imbued with an old West vibe, the official video for “New Day” finds Alison on horseback, riding through a barren wilderness. The blindfold covering her eyes would seem to put her at a disadvantage as she encounters formidable adversaries – but when she lifts it, she unleashes a powerful energy. View the video, which was directed by Pete Dons and produced by Satien Mehta. Director and photographer Peter Donaghy (@Donslens) has worked with Halsey, Rüfüs Du Sol, Olivia Rodrigo, Kaskade, and Slander among others.

BRIT Award-winning singer-songwriter Becky Hill teams up with GRAMMY®-nominated dance music superstars Galantis on the new single, “Run,” released today via Astralwerks.
“I’m so excited to release ‘Run’ with Galantis.” says Becky Hill. “I wrote it with my best friend MNEK, whom I’ve been writing with for 10 years. The magic I felt when we first wrote my single ‘Losing’ back in 2012, I still feel to this day when writing with him. I feel like every single I release has the potential to better the last one and this is no different, especially with Galantis featuring on the record, too. With their catalogue of hits with the likes of Little Mix and Years & Years, I’m very proud to be a part of another huge collaboration with them. This next phase of my artistry is an extension of me fully coming out as a popstar, but this time with a BRIT Award in hand!”
Australian-born, Los Angeles-based producer Kito released her new EP, Blossom, today via Astralwerks. She also shared visualizers for three of its seven songs: her new single, “Tongue Tied” (ft. Terror Jr), “Locked On You” (ft. BROODS) and “Always Been You.” Additional collaborators include ZHU and Jeremih, VanJess and Channel Tres and Bea Miller.
The songs feel familiar and irresistible—swirling up lyrics about love and loss while pulling from the visceral dance songs of Kito’s past and the emotionally rich futuristic pop she devours now. She teams up with Terror Jr, the pop duo behind such dance hits as “3 Strikes” and “Come First,” on her new single, “Tongue Tied,” which enraptures with its ethereal instrumentation and distorted vocal chops. The infectious “Locked On You” features evocative vocals from acclaimed New Zealand duo BROODS, who also collaborated with Kito on her 2018 EP, Haani. “Always Been You,” the EP’s leadoff track, is a soulful celebration of those who can be truly counted on, even amid life’s storms.
Astralwerks artist Kito announces the November 5 release of her new EP, Blossom, and unveils the leadoff track from the seven-song set, “Skin & Bones” ft. Winona Oak. Kito wrote the song with Sarah Aarons (Zedd, Alessia Cara, Maren Morris). @kito
Montreal born, Toronto-based artist Rêve makes her major label debut with her first single “Still Dancing” out today via Astralwerks. Co-signed to 31 East, the label of Montreal production duo Banx & Ranx (Dua Lipa, Sia, Little Mix, Sean Paul) and Universal Music Canada, “Still Dancing” is the first collaboration for this team.
On the single, Rêve said: “‘Still Dancing’ is a song that was written during a time when misery needed company and couldn’t have any. It is a song dedicated to club kids, but also house music itself and its unique ability to transport us to euphoria even on our darkest days.”
Accompanying visuals for “Still Dancing,” directed by Adem Boutlidja, produced by Anthony Hachez, are out now. The video shows Rêve in a glass box, longing and fantasizing about being free and surrounded by people, eventually transcending to the freedom and dancing she dreams about. “I was inspired by the context and the crazy times we’ve been living in over the past few months. People were stuck at home, and the only thing they wanted was being able to escape and enjoy life again,” said producer Anthony Hachez. “This is what we wanted to translate. That feeling of being trapped in a box and the desire for freedom, for being able to go out and dance the night away.”
