In The Blue Light Out Fri

Ev­i­dently not head­ing for re­tire­ment after his fi­nal tour con­cludes this month, Paul Si­mon has re­worked ten tracks from his solo cat­a­logue – in­clud­ing four from 2000’s You’re The One. His voice holds up amaz­ingly well at 76, and the songs have been tweaked and sub­tly or­ches­trated to cre­ate some­thing warm, wise and new.

Bloom Out now

The se­cond al­bum by South African-born, Aus­tralia-raised teen­pop idol and vlog­ger Troye Si­van is stylish, con­fid­ing dance-pop of a gen­tle kind. The Robyn-ish ti­tle track, Ari­ana Grande duet Dance To This and synth-pop strum-along The Good Side stand out in pleas­ing but some­times slightly anony­mous com­pany.
