So many artists, 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. In these concertless times, that includes daily livestreams and live concert videos we love. 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.

DOJA CAT - "KISS ME MORE" (ft. SZA)

Doja Cat is gearing up to release her new album Planet Her this summer, and its new single "Kiss Me More" is a collab with SZA. Doja Cat told Apple Music that she made this song "in the spirit of" SZA, and then eventually reached out to her to have her sing on it. It's pretty much the perfect middle ground between SZA's ethereal R&B and Doja Cat's more immediate, radio-friendly vibe.

JAMES VINCENT MCMORROW - "WAITING"

"I had this album finished last year and then the world stopped and I had to stop," James Vincent McMorrow says. "I remember sitting in my car crying after I heard that we'd be parking the work until 2021, and then I wrote 'Waiting.' It's a song about feeling sorry for myself, and then going home and talking to the one person in my life who understands just how awkward a fit all of this is for me, and who loves me for the actual human I am and not what I curate in order to feel like the person I need to be." It's from his new album, Grapefruit Season, due out July 16 via Columbia Records.

UK rapper/singer/producer/instrumentalist BERWYN follows his very promising 2020 debut DEMOTAPE/VEGA with his first single of 2021. Like DEMOTAPE/VEGA, it's an inventive track that blurs the lines between early James Blake and current UK rap.
