King Krule, Strandz, Jorja Smith and more added to our NEXT HYPE playlist

Listen to the best new songs from across the genre spectrum

Check out five tracks from our NEXT HYPE playlist, which is dedicated to bringing you the best music from all of the genres out there.

1. King Krule - 'Seaforth'

King Krule launched the roll-out for his new album 'Space Heavy' with this feel-good new single and visual last week. Straying from the poignant, crooning sound explored across much his discography, the South Londoner appears optimistic and loved-up in his latest offering - singing about his daughter Marina who also has a writing credit on the tune. 

2. Strandz - 'J'adore'

Teased on TikTok in the run up to this track's release, it's clear South London rapper Strandz is perfecting the art of building anticipation. Carving out one of the most distinctive flows and in the UK rap landscape right now, 'J'adore' centres around Strandz' own relationship and shows what being a power couple is all about. 

3. Jorja Smith - 'Try Me'

Jorja Smith has returned with new track 'Try Me'. Oozing confidence and power, the cinematic, jazz-influenced single sees one of the UK's best vocal powerhouses return to her throne. 

4. ENNY, Loyle Carner - 'Take It Slow'

Taken from ENNY's new 'We Go Again' EP, 'Take It Slow' sees the South East Londoner join forces with Loyle Carner to blend their introspective lyrics and classy beats. 

5. Venna, Knucks - 'Misty'

Venna is one of the coldest producers and saxophonists in the game - his new EP 'EQUINOX' is a star-studded project proving just that. One of the standout moments on the EP involves a collaboration with Knucks on 'Misty'. It's an undisputed UK anthem.
