Didn't get time to listen to new music at the weekend? No bother, because we're on hand to help you catch up.

Lady Gaga was the biggest name to release a new album, with the fantastic Chromatica arriving on Friday. But there was plenty else to enjoy, from surprise album drops to charity collaborations.

One of the UK's most talked about rappers hit us with their latest project, a popular producer returned under a cryptic moniker, and a notorious punk band came back with a bang.

Here's the new music you might have missed.

Aitch — Polaris

One of the biggest rappers this side of the Atlantic, Manchester’s Aitch has dropped a new eight-song project. Kenny Beats is among the production credits, and the AJ Tracey collaboration Rain is there too.

Four Tet has returned and dropped a new four-track EP under his rather boggling Wingdings pseudonym. The tracks are less confusing though, with plenty of playful, summer-ready beats.

Neil Finn, Stevie Nicks and Christine McVie — Find Your Way Back Home

Neil Finn, who’s been playing as part of Fleetwood Mac since 2018, has enlisted the help of bandmates Stevie Nicks and Christine McVie for this slow-burning track. It’s been released in aid of New Zealand homeless shelter Auckland City Mission.

Pussy Riot, Dillom, Muerejoven, Parcas — 1312

Russian punks Pussy Riot have returned with their latest track, a collaboration with Argentinian artists Parcas, Dillom, and Muerejoven. It’s an excoriating critique of sex-based hate crime and police violence.

Lil Wayne — Funeral (Deluxe)

Lil Wayne has dropped a deluxe version of his new album Funeral, with eight additional tracks and a host of fresh features — featuring Doja Cat, Jessie Reyez, Lil Uzi Vert and more.

Flaming Lips and Kacey Musgraves — Flowers of Neptune 6

Country star Kacey Musgraves lends her vocals to this sprawling new track from American psych-rockers The Flaming Lips. The whole thing “is a combination of blissful, innocent, psychedelic experiences that Steven [Drozd] and Kacey Musgraves (she sings harmony with me on the track) and myself all discussed,” said frontman Wayne Coyne.

Brockhampton — Fishbone and Chain On/Hold Me feat. JPEGMAFIA

The Brockhampton boys are keeping good on their promise to release new music every weekend. This time, there are two fresh tracks, with JPEGMAFIA dropping bars on one.
