Making her Later… debut is British-Albanian singer Dua Lipa, who performs a couple of songs from her Top 10 self-titled debut album.

Also from Albania, and making their debut but with a completely different sound, are Saz’iso, a collection of southern Albania’s finest folk musicians, who have been put together by legendary producer Joe Boyd and who offer a thrilling introduction to Saze, one of Europe’s richest but most overlooked music genres. They perform tunes from their collection of mesmerizing arabesques and heartbreaking laments from the album At Least Wave Your Handkerchief At Me: The Joys and Sorrows of Southern Albanian Song.
