A new era is upon us! No, not Taylor Swift (we’ve covered that already). Canadian singer-songwriter Shawn Mendes just dropped his first new single of 2019, the fantastic “If I Can’t Have You.” Mendes is still touring his third album through the rest of 2019, but he just might pull a Thank U, Next and drop a whole new record before the year is even done.
But apart from Mendes, we also had some other triumphant returns. Electro-pop singer-songwriter Banks is back with her first new music since 2017, and Kim Petras is building hype for a new era of her own with another new single. Mid-aughts Disney Channel queen Ashley Tisdale has returned with a really solid indie pop record, and post “Happier,” Bastille are ready to conquer the charts again with their new one.
Every week, Uproxx will round out the best new pop releases of the last seven days. Listen up.
