Jamie Skey @jamie_skey rounds-up all this week's most significant singles, plus the new songs that have surfaced online in the last seven days that you shouldn't miss...
Similarly to her south London contemporary Jessie Ware, Brit school graduate Delilah trades in smooth, crepuscular dub-pop which owes a huge debt to the Bristol-based trip hop scene.

Ed Sheeran recently announced on Twitter that Give Me Love will be the last single to be taken from +, and the emotive power-ballad is to be accompanied by a grisly video in which a modern-day cupid meets a bloody demise. Here it is...
