Lover Come Back
by City and Colour

 

It's been a pretty busy Friday in the world of new music, seeing new singles and albums drop from a slew of great artists across all genres. From 18-year-old producer Melvv's first first release on iTunes, to alternative veterans The Fratellis dropping their brand new album "Eyes Wide, Tongue Tied", there's a lot to keep track of. From all the new music I've heard so far, though, it's City and Colour's new single "Lover Come Back" that takes the cake in my opinion. Give the shortlist a listen and decide for yourself.
