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.

R.A.P. FERREIRA - "BLACK PALADIN'S THEME (FREE TAKE)"

The great and very prolific underground rapper R.A.P. Ferreira has returned with his first new song of 2022, and it finds him sounding effortlessly smooth over a kinetic beat from producer UZ.

EDDIE VEDDER - "LONG SHADOW"

Sunday (8/21) would've been Joe Strummer's 70th birthday, and to celebrate longtime fan Eddie Vedder covered "Long Shadow," from Streetcore, Strummer's posthumous final album with the Mescaleros. "I just think that what Joe did with the Mescaleros and those records, and those songs, and those words, it was a very communal sound," Vedder says. "I think when you have a communal sound, the listener feels like they can be part of that community." Lance Bangs directed the accompanying video.

JOE STRUMMER - "FANTASTIC"

ZEDD, MAREN MORRIS & BEAUZ - "MAKE YOU SAY"

The last time Zedd and Maren Morris teamed up, it was for the massive hit "The Middle," so you may be interested to know that they've got another new track together. Like "The Middle," it finds Maren making a seamless pivot from her usual country style to EDM-pop, but it seems like they're going for something a little more understated on "Make You Say" than on its earwormy predecessor.

BLACKPINK - "PINK VENOM"

The massively popular K-pop girl group BLACKPINK's sophomore album Born Pink comes out September 16 via YG Entertainment, and lead single "Pink Venom" is a hip hop/pop hybrid that sounds like something Timbaland might've produced in the 2000s.

MELLE BROWN & ANNIE MAC - "FEEL ABOUT YOU" (DJ KOZE REMIX)

DJ Koze has remixed "Feel About You," the new single from Melle Brown and former BBC DJ Annie Mac. “I got such a kick out of anticipating what Koze’s take on ‘Feel About You’ would be,” Annie Mac said. “When he sent me the track I took it out for a walk in the evening sun and listened to it three times in a row. It was a very surreal and beautiful experience. I love the new music he’s crafted; the new piano line, that vocal sample in the break, those drums, that emotional climax at the end. He is a wizard when it comes to reinterpreting songs, and I’m forever grateful that he chose ‘Feel About You’ to remix.”

GREENTEA PENG - "LOOK TO HIM"

"'Look To Him' explores the idea of originality and the notion of tapping into source energy for creativity and inspiration rather than just searching for it amongst your peers and surroundings," says Greentea Peng of her new single. "At the same time, it challenges the idea that anything is truly original as nothing is truly our own rather seeped into us from a Higher Power and thus channeled from God him/herself."

DR JOHN & AARON NEVILLE - “END OF THE LINE” (TRAVELLING WILBURYS COVER)

Posthumous Dr John album Things Happen That Way is out September 23 via Rounder and they've just shared this cover of The Travelling Wilburys' "End of Line" which is a duet with fellow New Orleans legend Aaron Neville.
