Notes on this week's new releases:
- Gabrielle Aplin and Nina Nesbitt, in many (no) ways the Beyoncé and Lady Gaga of post-major label streaming success, today deliver their Telephone. Miss You 2 is a rework of Gabrielle's 2016 song Miss You and while a new version of Waking Up Slow might have been 7% more spectacular today's single hits the spot nicely.
- Justin Bieber has delivered — as part of the first track from his new album — the line "bonafide stallion, it ain't no stable, no, you stay on the run". (This song is not very good.)
- The sleeve for Pet Shop Boys' Monkey Business features a staircase but it's not the staircase.
- The year is 2020 and Foo Fighters are still at it.
