“Headphones” is Little Boots’ new single, fresh off an as-yet-untitled second record that’ll reportedly be out later this year. It’s one of those lost-on-the-dance-floor club bangers in the vein of some of Lady Gaga’s – Little Boots sings about wearing headphones at the club, wrapped up in her own world; in the video she imagines a braver version of herself – but while it’s as catchy and fun (for the most part) as anything you’d see on MTV, we’re loving those weird, artstep inspired elements: that new-wavey bassline is one thing, but what about that fantastic skipped-heartbeat moment toward the end where everything just stops? Check it out.

Raekwon, Killer Mike, Pusha T, Danny Brown, YG, Action Bronson, Young Thug, and more show up.
He also makes a quick cameo as a detective.
“Bubs” is a collaboration with PC Music’s A.G. Cook.
Another new track to follow up last week’s “A Kick To The Face.”
Charlotte Aitchison’s second LP is a warhead, a sonic sour bomb that conceals sneering attitude and caustic kiss-offs beneath an initially shimmering pop sheen.
From his still-unannounced new album, featuring Thundercat, Bilal and production from Astronote.
