It's been a big week for new music, with some of the top names in pop making Internet-breaking comebacks.

We've mined through all the music that's out this week and returned with a heap of essential tracks - check out guide to this week's releases below (plus a few special numbers from New Music Fridays past that we can't stop listening to).

Short On Time? Definitely Don't Miss These:

  • Janelle Monáe's celebration of "pussy power" with Grimes
  • The debut from LUMP (aka Laura Marling and Tunng's Mike Lindsay)
  • JGrrey's brilliantly bewitching new number "Growing"
  • Soft dick jazz-pop from Norway's Jenny Hval
  • Masterful experimental R&B from newcomer Alyusha
  • The lead track from Gang Gang Dance's first album in seven years
  • Ben Khan's mind-blowing comeback
  • One half of Empress Of's two-pronged return
  • "All In", the latest from high-flying lo-fi talent Bakar
