Planet Rotations #235: Single Suite 2

In the age of digital music, we tend to skip through albums, listening to one or two tracks - missing some of the deeper cuts that may be brilliant. We are huge fans of the album format, and love to experience the entire collection the way the artist intended. Listening to one or two songs is like randomly reading a few chapters of a book and expecting to understand the completed work. Like all music lovers, we love to share what we're listening to and discover some new things from friends.

In this week's edition of Planet Rotations, Sarah handpicked some great singles that have been released in advance of their respective albums. This is part of an ongoing series designed to keep you up-to-date on new releases that should be hitting your ears. All tracks are collected in the Spotify player at the bottom of this post.
