Words: Dylan Murphy
With the endless onslaught of new music every Friday it’s hard to keep up with all the new releases. We’ve curated the essential new albums and projects out today for you to check out.
Becky McNeice, Alicia Raye – Love Letters
It really feels like the year of the joint project. Central Cee and Dave, JPEGMAFIA and Danny Brown and now Alicia Raye and Becky McNeice. The pair come through with four tracks of sincere pop ahead of what promises to be a busy 2024.
Speaking on the project they said, “ ‘Love Letters’ is our ode to the human experience of love, and is a connection between our emotions and our artistry. We were able to join different realities and perspectives of love and transform them into a collaborative musical masterpiece. Creating this EP was a therapeutic and healing process for us, so we believe that all the true emotions poured into our music will give listeners a genuine and relatable experience”.
