Group member Suffa released a hilarious but all-too-real statement on what the track is about, saying it’s a “a song about the eternal struggle of being cornered by a close-talker”.

“It’s a song that’s relatable to anyone that’s ever been outside. Or in a room with more than four people.”
We feel that.

‘Leave Me Lonely’ contains elements of Richard Berry’s song ‘Have Love Will Travel’, and is the follow-up to Hilltop Hoods’ previous single ‘Clark Griswold’. Meanwhile, The Great Expanse will mark the group’s first album since 2014’s Walking Under Stars.

Just in case all that sweet Hoods content wasn’t enough for you, they’ve also dropped a trailer for their just-released documentary Restrung Live. The doco follows the group on their ‘Restrung’ tour back in 2016, and gives an intimate look at the behind the scenes of one of the country’s pioneering hip-hop acts.

You can catch Hilltop Hoods at Falls Festival this New Year period.

Calvin Harris & Sam Smith l EMI/SME

Promises from Calvin Harris & Sam Smith keeps loud luxury & Ariana Grande at bay, too hold onto the #1 spot for a second week, “Promises” is a song by Scottish DJ/music producer Calvin Harris and English singer Sam Smith. The song, which features Canadian singer/songwriter Jessie Reyez, sees the narrator hoping for an affair or rather a hookup that doesn’t lead to something more serious. He therefore tells his love interest he’s not going to make any promises. Now challenging at #2 up from #3 is Loud Luxury with Body, which also features the vocals of brando, Loud Luxury hooked up with vocalist Brando to record their first original single "Body." Released through Armin van Buuren's record label Armada Music, the party-themed song became an international hit.The song was originally a hip-hop demo that Brando played to Loud Luxury. The Canadian duo was not impressed, but they still saw some potential in the recording. It was much slower and we all agreed it was a bit silly because it was in this DJ Mustard, strip-club anthem vibe. However, we were always excited about his vocals on it so we took it home and basically flipped the whole idea on its head. As soon as we sped it up a bit and put more emotional chords under the track, it felt amazing. Now at #3 up from #5 is thank u, next from Ariana Grande, "Thank U, Next" is a self-empowerment song in which Ariana Grande looks back at some of her past relationships. She expresses gratitude to her exes for having helped her to find herself. The song's release may have been prompted by a promotional clip for the November 3, 2018 episode of Saturday Night Live in which Pete Davidson jokingly proposed to the show's musical guest, singer Maggie Rogers. Grande responded by tweeting "for somebody who claims to hate relevancy you sure love clinging to it huh," followed by "thank u, next." Next dropping from #2 to #4 is former #1, Day Drunk from Morgan Evans, which was his first ever #1 in Australia, “Day Drunk” was the one that kept coming up. Once we had all five original songs out, we were looking at the sales, streams, comments, tweets and stuff like that, and they were all pointing to “Day Drunk.” I love that song as a songwriter because of the double meaning of it. I wrote it about spending a day with your girl and shutting the world out, but at the same time, you can play that in the middle of the day at a country festival and it becomes a drinking anthem!” Next Rita Ora drops from #4 to #5 with Let You Love Me, "Let You Love Me" finds Rita Ora lamenting a self-destructive relationship. The synth-pop tune is a take on the complexities of romances in which the singer acknowledging that she is the reason behind their troubles.

Next Staying put at #6 is Marshmello & Bastille with Happier, This song was written by Bastille's vocalist Dan Smith with Steve Mac (Clean Bandit's "Symphony," Ed Sheeran's "Shape Of You") in 2017. Bastille saw potential in the song as a collaboration and hooked up with Marshmello to add some of his EDM beats. They were surprised with how the American producer was able to produce an upbeat song from such downbeat lyrics. Now at #7 is Lady Gaga & Bradley Cooper with Shallow, This dramatic duet between Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper was recorded for the 2018 remake of the classic movie A Star is Born. Gaga plays the rising star Ally, and Cooper the established musician Jackson Maine, who becomes her mentor and lover. Gaga explained that the song serves a crucial moment in the film. She told Zane Lowe on his Beats 1 Radio show: "It's two people talking to each other about the need and the drive to dive into the deep end and stay away from the shallow area." Also at #8 is Guy Sebastian with Before I Go, it was co-penned by Guy alongside Jamie Hartman and Dave Hodges. We also know that it was the first song written for Guy’s upcoming eleventh studio album.We know that said studio album won’t be out until the new year. And we also know ‘Before I Go’ is about smashing through any obstacles people place in the way of you reaching your goals.“I can’t wait for my fans to have a chance to hear my new single,” Guy says in a statement.“This was the very first song I wrote when I sat down to start this new album and it says so much about what I was feeling at the time. In fact, the vocal is still the demo vocal from the writing session because it just felt honest. Next In Long Line at songs that remain steady is Love Someone from Lukas Graham at #9, which has become the danish groups, second Top 10 enter, since they went to #1 with 7 years, lastly re-entering the Top 10 is Dean Lewis with Be Alright, moving back from #16 to #10 with his former #1, "Be Alright" was released as the first taste of Lewis' debut album on June 29, 2018. The song became Lewis' first Australian chart-topper, spending eight consecutive weeks at the summit. It also became Lewis' debut international hit, reaching charts worldwide.
Nothing Breaks Like A Heart
Mark Ronson ft. Miley Cyrus COL/SME

"Nothing Breaks Like a Heart" is a song by British musician Mark Ronson featuring American singer Miley Cyrus, released on 29 November 2018 by RCA Records as the lead single from Ronson's upcoming fifth studio album, Late Night Feelings (2019). It was written by Mark Ronson, Ilsey Juber, Clement Picard, Maxime Picard, Conor Szymanski, Miley Cyrus & Thomas Brenneck and produced by Mark Ronson, Jamie xx & Picard Brothers. "Leave Me Lonely" was released in Australia, on November 29, 2018 by Columbia Records & Sony Music Entertainment. "Nothing Breaks Like a Heart" is This Week's Hot Debut entering the Hot 100 at #33.

Mark Ronson has had a hell of a year. The producer is, at this point, a legend, writing and engineering for artists like Amy Winehouse, Bruno Mars, and many in between. 2018 has been particularly prolific for Ronson due to his songwriting with Lady Gaga for the box-office smash A Star Is Born, whose lead single, “Shallow”, was written in part by the Brit. In addition to all this, Ronson has released the first song in anticipation of his upcoming solo album, “Nothing Breaks Like a Heart”. The single features Miley Cyrus on vocals and fuses her Tennessee roots with a modern twist, creating a simultaneously heart-wrenching and danceable tune.

Cyrus and Ronson pair well together, the former’s raw talent and knack for soulful vocals balancing the DJ’s skill for unique and enthralling production. The chorus of “Nothing Breaks Like a Heart” will be stuck in listeners’ heads for days or even weeks, a tumbling declaration of life’s hurdles that feels both melancholy and triumphant in the face of lost love. The marriage of Cyrus’ pop stardom and Ronson’s skill for creating bona fide hits is a match made in heaven, and “Nothing…” is an example of that can’t-miss compatibility.
