SZA

‘Good Days’

When SZA dropped her comeback single ‘Hit Different’ last September, it arrived with a little surprise: an entrancing, untitled song that concluded its music video. After much badgering from fans, the singer finally released it in December. There’s a bit more polish on the studio version of ‘Good Days’, plus backing vocals and additional instrumentation – flutes, birdsong – that help her voice soar even more, turning it into a balm that was well worth the wait.

Grimes

‘You’ll Miss Me When I’m Not Around (Things You Say Remix)’

Arriving almost a year after the original release, the rave edition of Grimes’ 2020 album ‘Miss Anthropocene’ features contributions from a host of electronic producers, including BloodPop, Channel Tres, Richie Hawtin and more. Among the hypercharged reworks is a banging rendition of ‘You’ll Miss Me When I’m Not Around’, which previously was a soundtrack for starry-night drives, and is now more suited for the 3AM dancefloor.
