(Tom Beard)

Still have Adele’s “Hello” on repeat days later? You’ll eventually be ready to dry your eyes, put the track on pause, and freshen up your playlists, so EW has just the thing. Take inspiration from songs you already love to find your next new favorite.

Love This? Florence + The Machine, “You’ve Got the Love.” Flo covers Candi Staton’s soulful 1986 ode, amplifies the love.

Try This! Kacy Hill, “Arm’s Length.” Amber-waved Kanye protégée finds her own siren song with lush, slow-build orchestral ballad.


Love This? Ben Harper, “Forever.” Commitment has no statute of limitations, swears this strummy MVP of the wedding circuit.

Try This! Son Little, “Lay Down.” Mumford & Sons tourmate offers more devotion, dusts it with sweet Sam Cooke-style vintage soul.


Love This? Omi, “Cheerleader.” Jamaican upstart’s breezy reggae tribute to his personal pom-pom girl hit No. 1 in 20 countries.

Try This! Kranium, “Stamina.” Montego Bay native also nails island melodies, but is more PG-13 in the romance department.


Love This? Tove Lo, “Habits (Stay High).” Stockholm pop starlet goes to the post-breakup dark side, tries to party the pain away.

Try This! Kill J, “You’re Good but I’m Better.” Tove’s Nordic neighbor has her own crush issues to work out on this finger-snappy takedown.


Love This? St. Lucia, “All Eyes on You.” South African-bred Brooklynite reps his tropical namesake with put-a-palm-tree-on-it anthem.

Try This! Tep No, “Swear Like a Sailor.” Toronto producer inhabits his own endless summer on this warm-blooded indie-pop thumper.
