29 New Songs Out Today

Takeoff

So many artists, so little time. Each week we review five new albums (of all genres), round up even more new music that we’d call “indie,” and talk about what metal is coming out. We post music news, show recaps, track premieres, and more all day. That includes a lot of tour announcements, a list of tonight’s NYC shows, and NY shows that just went on sale. We publish a monthly playlist of some of our favorite tracks. Here’s a daily roundup with a bunch of interesting, newly released songs in one place…

TAKEOFF – THE LAST ROCKET (ALBUM STREAM)

There is no lack of Migos being released this year. In addition to the group’s 2018 album Culture II, their many guest appearances, and Quavo’s solo album, Takeoff has now released his own solo album. Like Quavo’s, it kinda just sounds like Migos… take that as you will.

METRO BOOMIN – NOT ALL HEROES WEAR CAPES (ALBUM STREAM)

Speaking of Migos members, Offset is on two tracks on super producer Metro Boomin’s new guest-filled solo album, along with Drake, Travis Scott, Young Thug, 21 Savage, Swae Lee of Rae Sremmurd, Gucci Mane, J Balvin, and more. It’s 13 tracks of pure star power.

MIKE WILL MADE-IT – “KILL ‘EM WITH SUCCESS” (ft. EEARZ, SCHOOLBOY Q, 2 CHAINZ)

Speaking of rap super producers, Mike Will Made-It shared a new single from the Creed II soundtrack — which he is executive producing — and in addition to showcasing his latest Ear Drummer Records signee Eearz, it features a characteristically wild verse from Schoolboy Q and a characteristically pump-up verse from 2 Chainz.

BENJAMIN CLEMENTINE – “ETERNITY”

Mercury Prize winner Benjamin Clementine recorded this high-drama, torchy ballad for Swiss watchmaker Vacheron Constantin. He based the lyrics on Oscar Wilde’s poem “The True Knowledge.”

MEG BAIRD & MARY LATTIMORE – “BETWEEN TWO WORLDS”

Meg Baird (Espers, Heron Oblivion) and harpist Mary Lattimore will release their collaborative album, Ghost Forests, next week and have now shared this gorgeous, bewitching instrumental where their instruments wind round each other like vines on a trellis.

MARK KNOPFLER – “BACK ON THE DANCEFLOOR”

The former Dire Straits frontman will release new album, Down the Road Wherever on November 16 and here’s another track to preview that features both Mark’s searing guitarwork and his weary vocal style..

AUDIOBOOKS – “FRIENDS IN THE BUBBLEBATH”

The most immediate pop song on audiobook’s brilliantly bonkers debut LP, it’s a plea for platonic bubblebath bathing set to a Human League–esque synthpop backing. Read our review of the  LP here. It’s not a big deal!

METHOD MAN – “WILD CATS” (ft. REDMAN, STREETLIFE, HANZ ON)

The Wu-Tang Clan’s most charismatic member, Method Man, is gearing up to release his new solo album The Meth Lab II: The Lithium, on December 11, and he just shared another song from it. This one features his longtime collaborator Redman, along with Streetlife and Hanz On, and for the most part it’s the kind of song you could imagine coming right out of Meth’s late ’90s era.

HA (HODGY + ALVIN RISK) – “PRECIOUS”

Odd Future’s Hodgy and DC producer/singer Alvin Risk have a new collaborative project called HA, and after recently releasing the song “O.P.E.N.,” they’re now back with “Precious.” It’s a sunny pop song where Alvin Risk’s presence is seemingly felt a little more than Hodgy’s. They say more music is coming soon.

D33J – “DOGTALK” (ft. A$AP NAST)

Wedidit co-founder D33J is gearing up to release his guest-filled INFINITY 33 mixtape on November 16 via Wedidit, and today he shared the new single “Dogtalk” which features A$AP Nast. Nast in a heavily auto-tuned, sing-songy mode over the song’s lighthearted production. The song comes with a lyric video too.

MONEYBAGG YO – RESET (ALBUM STREAM)

Memphis rapper Moneybagg Yo just released his debut album, RESET, which features J Cole, Future, YG, Jeremih, Kevin Gates, and others. “I’m trying to un-polish, like ‘reset’ myself. I’m trying to take myself back to when I first came in. That’s what the fans miss and that’s how they accepted me, so I kind of want to go back and give them that,” Moneybagg told Billboard.

LCD SOUNDSYSTEM – “(WE DON’T NEED THIS) FASCIST GROOVE THANG” (HEAVEN 17 COVER)

Part of their Electric Lady Studios sessions for Spotify, LCD Soundsystem have covered Heaven 17’s classic 1981 single, whose lyrics are just as relevant now as they were when Reagan was president. Nancy Whang takes lead vocals.

POZI – “KCTMO”

A gripping indictment of of London’s Grenfell Tower fire, this debut single from London’s POZI is a gripping piece of post-punk inspired protest. Read more here.

CHROMATICS – ‘CAMERA’ EP

While we continue to wait for their LP Dear Tommy to drop, Chromatics have released a deluxe digital version of their Camera EP which was released only on vinyl this summer. In addition to the title track, it’s got remixes (one by Twin Peaks sound designer Dean Hurley) and a couple ambient instrumentals.

HAMMOCK – “CLIFFSIDE”

The great ambient duo Hammock are releasing their new album Universalis on December 7, and they’ve shared the gorgeous second single, “Cliffside.” It comes with a “moving photograph” visual, which suits the meditative song well.

H.E.R. – I USED TO KNOW HER: PART 2 (EP STREAM)

Rising R&B singer released the I Used To Love Her: THe Prelude EP back in August, and today she followed it with I Used to Know Her: Part 2. Compared to the electronic R&B/hip hop vibe of the first EP, this one is ballad-heavy and more focused on clean guitars and pianos. She’s also touring.

SLICK RICK – “SNAKES OF THE WORLD TODAY”

Groundbreaking rapper Slick Rick, whose storytelling style influenced too many rappers to count, reissued his classic debut The Great Adventures of Slick Rick for its 30th anniversary. The reissue comes with a previously unreleased track from those sessions, “Snakes of the World Today,” which instantly sounds as worthy as many of The Great Adventures‘ most well-known tracks.

ANDREW BIRD – “BLOODLESS”

Andrew Bird has shared his first single in more than a year, “Bloodless,” written in response to our current political unrest. Andrew told NPR, “we find ourselves in a cold civil war. Everyone is playing their part too well. Certain actors are reaping power and wealth from divisiveness. Echoes of the Spanish civil war when fascists and clergy win because they put up a united front against the individualistic and principled (yet scattered) left. We can turn this ship around, but need to step back and be honest with ourselves about what’s happening while it’s still relatively bloodless.”

VINCE STAPLES – “FUN”!

Vince Staples returned today with the semi-surprise release of his brief new album FM!. The whole thing is great (read our review), and one of the standout tracks, “FUN!,” was given the video treatment. The title is a red herring, as this song (and most of the album) is about violence on the streets of Long Beach, and the video was shot on those very streets (and has a Google Maps theme). E-40 guests on the song.

NAP EYES – “HAVE YOU SEEN THE LIGHT” & “I’VE ALWAYS KNOWN YOU CARE”

Canadian band Nap Eyes just released a two-song digital single which follows this year’s excellent I’m Bad Now. Both sides are lovely and laid back, with understated but accomplished guitarwork.

LSD (SIA, DIPLO, LABRINTH) – “MOUNTAINS”

LSD, the supergroup of Sia, Diplo, and Labrinth, have shared their fourth single (following “Thunderclouds,” “Genius,” and “Audio”). “Mountains” pairs big dancefloor beats with optimistic lyrics about seeing things through and moving mountains.

ENVY – “DAWN AND GAZE” & “MARGINALIZED THREAD”

Japanese screamo greats Envy put out a two-song single, which is their first release in three years, and we wrote more about it here.

PROPHETS OF RAGE – “THE BALLOT OR THE BULLET”

Named after the famous Malcolm X speech, Rage Against the Machine/Public Enemy/Cypress Hill supergroup Prophets of Rage’s new video is a mashup of three unreleased tracks and their most recent single, “Hearts Afire.” The band writes, “there are people trying to keep many of us from being able to vote. Don’t squander the rights we’ve fought so hard to get. Agitate, organize, resist & rebel before, during & after election day. In the words of Malcolm X, ‘It’s got to be the ballot or the bullet.'”

SWIZZ BEATZ – “SOMETHING DIRTY/PIC GOT US” (ft. KENDRICK LAMAR, JADAKISS, STYLES P)

Swizz Beatz’s new album is out, including the song with Kendrick Lamar, Jadakiss, and Styles P, which we wrote more about here.

ROSALIA – EL MAL QUERER (ALBUM STREAM)

Nominated for Best New Artist by the Latin Recording Academy for her 2017 debut album Los Ángeles, flamenco-pop artist Rosalía has been crossing over to American audiences in a big way with singles from her new album El Mal Querer. Over thirty minutes it mixes flamenco traditions with current pop sounds, samples Arthur Russell (on “Maldición”), and references Justin Timberlake’s “Cry Me a River” (on “Bagdad”). Even if you don’t understand the lyrics (they’re in Spanish), it’s an incredibly appealing listen that has gained Rosalía admirers from Arca (who she has been working with recently) to Charli XCX, who tweeted that she wants to work together.


PHOEBE BRIDGERS – “POWERFUL MAN” (SANDY ALEX G COVER)

Phoebe Bridgers’ (Sandy) Alex G cover came out today as part of Simone Felice’s edition of Amazon Music’s “Produced By” series, which featured Conor Oberst and Felice Brothers songs earlier this week (both of which Phoebe sings on). More here.

EMMA DECORSEY – “GOLD”

Emma is the leader of I am the Polish Army and just released a solo EP, The Dream, today. You can watch the video for the gritty, glammy “Gold” and if you’re in NYC she plays tonight.
