Who? James

What’s the story? As the world slowly grinds us down, sometimes you need a bit of unabashed positivity injected into your life. And this week, it comes from Manchester legends James, as they reveal the second single from their forthcoming 14th (yes, that's a lot, isn't it) studio album Girl at the End of the World. It's called Nothing But Love and it sounds exactly like you'd expect a James song called Nothing But Love to sound: anthemic, joyful, and with Tim Booth's gloriously wonky enthusiastic vocals ringing out. Listen now, and while you're at it, just for the hell of it, have a listen to Just Like Fred Astaire, a forgotten classic from their back catalogue.

For fans of: Levellers, Mumford & Sons

In three words: Joyful happy goodness
