Four Tet released a new song yesterday called “Two Thousand and Seventeen”. He says he’s “been making loads of music” and that a “new album almost ready and coming this year,” so stay tuned.

Bloc Party’s Kele Okereke has announced a new solo LP, Fatherland. Watch the video for its first single, “Streets Been Talkin’”.

Fatherland is out October 6. It’s Okereke’s first solo album since 2014’s Trick

Finally, Sampha recently covered Solange’s “Cranes in the Sky” from last year’s wonderful A Seat at the Table. You can hear it at BBC Radio @ the 7:36 point. Insert crying emoji. (Solange approves.)

This year, Sampha released his powerful Process LP, one of the year’s best albums. Revisit album standout “Blood On Me”.
