There's a distinct whiff of Q4 about the first New Music Friday of Q1.
It's not 2018 yet. Here are 45 amazing songs, some words, and some playlists.
INCLUDES A KELLY CLARKSON CHRISTMAS SONG.
In which Rita disrupts an important meeting.
It features Jessie Ware, Fleur East, Dua Lipa, Bastille and various others.
Also: Little Mix and Stormzy! Troye and Martin! Lauren and Halsey! Nick, Anne-Marie and Mike Posner!
"Ed and I have been friends since our teens"
The Chainsmokers are there too.
That picture is Rita with a bucket on her head.
IN YOUR OWN TIME PLEASE RITA.
