Pete Tong's Essential New Tune
Water ft. Clara La San
Ninja Tune
out now
"The duo have said that Water was solely intended to be a standalone thing, essentially developed for the live show to cater for a specific moment in the set. However, it has become a keenly anticipated fan favourite. They've all been calling for it. It was launched as Hottest Record with Clara Amfo on Future Sounds, and now it is an ENT. Bicep are back."
This week's featured Essential New Tune was featured in last week’s Friday show on BBC Radio 1. Listen again and forward to 32.06 here.
