– I called this song The Song of the Summer (despite the fact that it’s not yet summertime), and I still think it has a spot in the running for a couple reasons, one being that the beat is just so infectious, everytime I play it I immediately put it on repeat.I also think they’re great collaborators, with her amazing voice paired with his consistently dance-worthy sound.It’s definitley going to have a spot on my playlist for a long while, accompanying both on my commute and the summer days at the beach.
This version of Zedd’s “True Colors” is actually a departure from the singer’s past poppier hits, bringing a surprisingly moody element to the song that’s both exciting and refreshing to hear.
– ’s “First Love / Late Spring,” all soaring melody, swelling crescendo, noise swallowing life.
Her new single, “Happy” is sparer, harsher, and more abrasive.
Over a drum machine beat that sounds like the breakdown we know is coming, Mitski recounts a visit from Happy, both a feeling and a man, neither of which, it seems, plans to stay long.
Drake gives his own mix three toots, and I happen to agree with this breezy summer hit from . Over strings that start out buoyant and joyful — initially they recall Kate Bush’s “The Hounds of Love” and Coldplay’s “Viva La Vida” — but quickly become ominous and dread-inducing, Thom Yorke spins a tale of modern paranoia that fits in well among the band’s catalog.
So much new music is released each week that it’s impossible to hear it all. But let us help simplify your search for new sounds with a roundup of the week’s 8 best new songs. (Listen on i Tunes) The evidence of a fire song lies in a gratuitous air horn blow somewhere within the track.
(And check out last week’s collection if your hunger has still not been sated.) NOTE: Drake’s remains an i Tunes and Apple Music exclusive, so if you would like to listen to the songs we mention below, you’re going to have to submit to the Apple gods.
It’s a great transition track into the album for fans of “One Dance” who are here to wine with his more melodic beats, plus it features a visit from Beanie Man at the very end, so make sure to listen all the way through for a treat. The claymation video is similarly disturbing (but stunning).
It’s the least happy song about happiness you’ll hear in 2016, but also probably the best. Gone is the piano, as she ushers in a Justin Bieber breezy dance vibe.
