The Winners

Agnetha Fältskog – “A+” (LP)

After releasing a single in August, Agnetha Fältskog presented her new album “A+” to the world this month. Well, new album might be exaggerated as in reality it is a reissue of her 2013 album “A”, with new versions of all existing songs. The new single from August serves as the album opener.

Lena – “Straitjacket”

Lena offers some slightly alternative, somewhat retro pop on new track “Straitjacket”. Lyrically, the track deals with being completely and utterly smitten by someone. Joining Lena on writing this track are Sophia Brenan (much of Mae Muller’s latest album), Hailey Collier (Kate Miller-Heidke, Betty Who) and the song’s producer Nikolay Mohr (ela., Ben Cristovao).

Júlio Resende featuring Salvador Sobral – “A Casa Dela Her House”

Serving up another helping of classy jazz in a collab this month. This time, he worked with Portuguese pianist and composer Júlio Resende for Júlio’s new album “Sons of Revolution”. Resende is the pioneer of a genre called Fado-Jazz, which fuses both into a unique yet recognizable sound. “A Casa Dela Her House” is the album closer on Resende’s new album, and is a great introduction to the genre for fans of Sobral who might not have heard something quite like this before.
