Listen to our ten favourite new tracks below, including Example, Azealia Banks, Joe McElderry and Diana Vickers.
Example: 'Say Nothing' (out September 16) The rapper's new single picks up neatly where last year's Playing in the Shadows left off, albeit with a softer and less harmful edge. 'Say Nothing' blends au courant dance beats with his own quirky rhymes and much improved vocals, resulting in an effortless, stadium-filling anthem.
The Lumineers: 'Ho Hey' US trio The Lumineers have been causing quite the stir in the US this year with their own brand of energetic folk-rock. After setting the charts alight on their home turf, they're gearing up to release their debut track 'Ho Hey' in the UK later this year; a summery stomper of a song with a chorus catchier than a baseball mitt.
Azealia Banks: 'Este Noche' (out now) The rapper's next official single - lifted from her mixtape 'Fantasea' - is a brilliant take on Montell Jordan's 'Get It On Tonight' mixed with a hi-wired, in-yer-face chorus that we're fast-becoming accustomed to hearing from the rising star.
Diana Vickers: 'Colours' We've been impressed by the various songs and demos that have surfaced online from Diana Vickers' extended stint in the studio. Her latest 'Colours' sees her hone her songwriting skills over a wistful melody that leaves us even more excited for her next LP.
Dizzee Rascal ft. Pepper: 'Scream' (August 5) He may have debuted this song at last year's V Festival, but 'Scream' is nonetheless a perfect fit as this year's Olympic track. Fresh from his spot at the opening ceremony, the Hackney rapper will rush-release the '90s-inspired anthem next week.
Bat For Lashes: 'Laura' (out now) Natasha Khan aka Bat For Lashes heads up her new album The Haunted Man with Laura; a beautiful, stripped down piano-ballad with a soul-crushing music video to match.
Tulisa ft. Tyga: 'Live It Up' (out September 10) We'll be honest: we've been feeling conflicted about Tulisa's new single. The backing sounds like a Nicki Minaj track and the chorus sounds strikingly similar to Alexandra Burke's 'Start Without You'. But while there's a distinct lack of 'Tulisa' about it, when dialled up a few extra notches it becomes worryingly catchy.
Kreayshawn: 'Go Hard' (out September 17) Following a string of online hits, US singer Kreayshawn returns with her eyes set firmly on the charts with 'Go Hard'; a wildly addictive electro-rap number that is sure to raise an eyebrow from fellow sing-speaker Ke$ha.
Joe McElderry: 'Here's What I Believe' (out September 10) After failing to live up to post-X Factor expectations, Joe McElderry more than proved his chops by releasing two successful covers albums last year. The lead single from his next album Here's What I Believe feels like a more natural fit for the star which, if we were to plot it on a Venn diagram, would land somewhere between Westlife and Take That.
Zeus: 'Are You Gonna Waste My Time?' (out now) Much of the UK won't be familiar with Canadian rockers Zeus just yet, but the vintage garage-rock riff on their latest track 'Are You Gonna Waste My Time?' makes it a must for any summer playlist.
