In a year that saw some of my all time favourite acts make big comebacks, I take a look at the albums that made my year. 2017’s best albums features the likes of Jay-Z, Kelly Clarkson, Laura Marling and The xx.
2017 was a fantastic year for singles. For every surprise #1 hit there were countless underrated songs that pushed an artist to the limit. I pick my favourites from familiar faces like Calvin Harris, Kendrick Lamar and Lorde, while newer acts like Dua Lipa and Stormzy make a huge impact.
