Pete Tong's Essential New Tune
Exits (George Fitzgerald Remix)
Warner Bros
"This week's Essential New Tune is hardly a closely guarded secret as we already mentioned George Fitzgerald at the top of the show, but before we hear it, congratulations to him on a tremendous 2018. The release of his album had great reactions, as well as his singles, and it ended up in my top 5 on the show. This week's ENT is George Fitzgerald remix of Exits by Foals." 
This week's featured Essential New Tune was featured in last week’s Friday show on BBC Radio 1. Listen again and forward to 28:08 mins here.
