16 New Songs Out Today
So many artists, so many songs, so little time. Each week we review a handful of 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, track premieres, and more all day. We update a playlist weekly of some of our current favorite tracks. Here's a daily roundup with a bunch of interesting, newly released songs in one place.
THE WEEKND - "NOTHING IS LOST (YOU GIVE ME STRENGTH)"
In the midst of showing up on tons of year-end lists (including ours), The Weeknd has shared a new song written for the new Avatar sequel, The Way of Water. He made it with Swedish House Mafia along with the film’s composer, Simon Franglen, and it's a sweeping, movie-soundtrack song but with a Weeknd twist.
THE ALCHEMIST - "BIG SYKE" (ft. MEYHEM LAUREN & BOLDY JAMES)

SUNNY WAR - "BABY BITCH" (WEEN COVER)
