Brand New On CMU

As well as rounding up all manner of exciting new music every day in the CMU Daily and on our website, we also curate all the music we cover into playlists on Spotify. You can see the full range on offer on our profile page on the streaming service, but here are the two key playlists that we update weekly…

Brand New On CMU 
Every Friday, we take all the new music we’ve covered over the course of that week and put it all in this playlist. Always an eclectic mix, it brings in the latest from a broad range of genres, and is a great way to stay up to date with what’s happening in contemporary music. This week’s playlist includes Lil Nas X, Camila Cabello, Coldplay, James Blake, Zeal & Ardor, Lorde, Khalid, Childish Gambino, The War On Drugs and more. Listen here.

CMU Approved 
Every Tuesday and Thursday we publish our new music column CMU Approved, introducing a new or emerging artist who we think you should know about. In this accompanying playlist, you can keep track of all the latest acts that have been approved – including this week’s artists, July Jones and Indigo De Souza. You can delve way back into the archives too, with the playlist stretching all the way back to 2014. Listen here.
