Listen to Nell Mescal’s powerful new single ‘In My Head’

Nell Mescal has shared a new single – check out the uptempo ‘In My Head’ below.

The soaring pop track arrives with a video directed by Dora Paphides, and is the second new release from the Irish singer-songwriter this year, following January’s ‘Homesick’.

“‘In My Head’ is a song about searching for a love you had in the past, a feeling you’re never sure you’ll find again so you seek comfort in relationships that are emotionally draining and one sided,” Mescal said.


“It’s about thinking that it must always be your fault and eventually leading to resentment towards the other person. We all have that person we look back on and miss, this track captures the moment they slip into your head.”

The 19-year-old kicked off her 2023 with a spot in the NME 100. Raised in Kildare, she is the sister of Normal People and Aftersun star Paul Mescal, and released her debut single ‘Graduating’ last year.

Mescal is also currently gearing up for her first-ever run of festival dates. Following two support slots in Dublin and London for Birdy next month, she will appear at The Great Escape, Kendall Calling, Boardmasters and at Haim‘s All Points East show across the summer.

FLO team up with Missy Elliott on new single ‘Fly Girl’

FLO have shared a vibrant new single – listen to ‘Fly Girl’ below.

Ahead of its full release, a teaser of the song went viral on TikTok earlier this week. ‘Fly Girl’ samples Missy Elliott‘s 2002 hit ‘Work Hit’, as the London trio rework the song’s widely-known refrain.

“If you a fly girl, get your nails done, get a pedicure, get your hair did,” FLO sing over a high-octane beat produced by MNEK. “See you telling me I’m pretty but it’s obvious, I don’t need a man to tell me where the party is.”


“’Fly Girl’ is all about confidence, good vibes and feeling your best. It’s a lively, feel good song that still incorporates clever lyrics and fire vocals, if we do say so ourselves,” said the band. “It’s quite literally a perfect fusion of old school meets modern day R&B, with a nod to and feature from the original fly girl Missy Elliott herself. We love it and are so happy to be putting out a song that can hopefully make whoever plays it feel confident and most importantly, fly.”

The track also features an original verse from Missy, who co-signed FLO last year after the release of their debut single, ‘Cardboard Box’.

“Working with FLO has been nothing less than amazing,” said the legendary rapper and producer. “I remember a few of their fans sent me clips of their performances, and I immediately felt the authentic 90’s vibe. I loved the fact they all sang lead so well – great vocal control – so when I was asked to be a part of the ‘Fly Girl’ record, it was a no brainer. They used the inspiration from my song ‘Work It’, and I felt they did it justice. I enjoyed it and I believe they have a long, great career ahead of them,” she said.

Elsewhere, FLO – who appeared on the cover of NME earlier this year – will play their first-ever UK headline show on March 30 at London’s HERE at Outernet, followed by a date at New Century Hall in Manchester on April 3.


Later that month, the BRIT Rising Star winners will head to the US and Canada for a string of headline shows, before appearing at Glastonbury, TRNSMT Festival, and Wireless Festival this summer. Head here to see their full list of tour dates and to buy tickets.

Enny announces details of new project ‘We Go Again’, confirms London headline show

Enny has shared details of a new project and an intimate London show – find all the details below.

Described by the south London artist as a “care package”, ‘We Go Again’ will be released on April 13 via FAMM. The six-track collection will include a guest feature from rapper Loyle Carner, and has been previewed by recent single ‘No More Naija Men’, which dropped last month.

“After I dropped my first EP, I was so convinced I’d never drop another project again because I felt like I had said everything I wanted to say,” Enny said. “These songs weren’t made to be a project; they were created in random pockets of sessions throughout the past 18 months but life has turned them into a gift. A gift of growth and change; a gift to myself as a reminder that I’m still capable, and a gift to the people that have joined me so far on this journey. A care package.”


She added: “I’m learning there’s not a destination in this life thing. it’s a constant journey of learning to do better. The lesson I’m learning right now is that after every fuck up, the only thing I can tell myself is fam… we go again.”

The full tracklist for ‘We Go Again’ is as follows:

1. ‘U Shld Heal’
2. ‘No More Naija Men’
3. ‘Charge It’
4. ‘2am In Central’
5. ‘Champagne Problems’
6. ‘Take It Slow’

Additionally, Enny has confirmed that she’ll perform a one-off show at London’s Omeara on April 27. Tickets go on sale at 10am on March 31 – you’ll be able to buy yours here.

‘We Go Again’ is set to follow Enny’s ‘Under Twenty Five’ EP, which landed in July 2021. In a four-star review, NME said: “Enny doesn’t follow the south London crowd and rely on drill beats to make her name, she instead uses her burgeoning fame to highlight the high-concept, narrative-heavy UK rap scene that deserves more attention.”

Listen to Hannah Jadagu’s soulful new single ‘Warning Sign’

Hannah Jadagu has released a new single and accompanying music video – listen to ‘Warning Sign’ below.

The New York-based artist’s new single lands ahead of her debut album ‘Aperture’, which will arrive on May 19 via Sub Pop. The track follows her appearance at Austin’s SXSW Festival last week, where she debuted songs from the new record.

“There’s rock Hannah, there’s hip-hop Hannah, and so on. I didn’t want any of the songs to sound too alike. ‘Warning Sign’ was practically the last song Max [co-producer] and I recorded for the album,” Jadagu said. “It almost was just a short interlude, but I was inspired by a melody that my sister sang on the original demo, which led Max and I to be able to piece together the rest of the sounds in the studio.”

‘Aperture’ will arrive two years after the release of Jadagu’s debut EP, ‘What’s Going On?’. She has since toured across the US with indie acts Faye Webster, Wet and Frankie Cosmos.

Speaking to NME about the album in a recent interview, the 20-year-old said: “The music reflects how much push and pull we have at this age. You’ll be stressed at 3pm, then by 6pm, you’re ready to start drinking early. Some of the songs sound happy, but the lyrics reveal that you’re actually going through it.”

Jadagu will also appear at Idaho’s Treefort Festival on March 25, and Mind The Gap Festival in Salt Lake City, Utah on August 26. Details of a forthcoming headline tour will be released soon.
