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, 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…

DRAKE & FUTURE - "DESIRES"

Drake and Future already put out one collab song this year, the unstoppably huge and irresistibly catchy "Life Is Good," and now they're back with another, the more R&B-tinged "Desires."

PHONY PPL - "FKN AROUND" (ft. MEGAN THEE STALLION)

As promised, Phony Ppl and Megan Thee Stallion have officially released the collab they debuted in an NPR Tiny Desk Concert last year, and it's cool to hear Megan change it up and rap over lively full-band funk like this.

The EP drops March 27 via Napalm Records.

TESTAMENT - "NIGHT OF THE WITCH"

Thrash legends Testament are true lifers who remain incredibly active over 30 years removed from their debut album, and their new music is genuinely good, especially compared to new music from some of the other still-active ’80s-era thrash vets. They just released the new single “Night of the Witch,” and this song is no exception. It's the first taste of their upcoming album Titans of Creation (due April 3 via Nuclear Blast) and you can read more about it here.

BE ALL END ALL - "BETTER YOU THAN ME" / "FAMOUS LAST WORDS"

Metallic hardcore crushers Be All End All are back with a new two-song single on Triple B Records, and people may use the term "whiplash-inducing" a lot for hardcore, but these guys earn it more than most.

DAVID BOWIE - "BABY UNIVERSAL 97"

A posthumous David Bowie EP of mid-'90s rarities, titled Is It Any Wonder?, has been coming out one track at a time for a few weeks now and here's a solo take on "Baby Universal" which was originally by his late-'80s rock band Tin Machine. This '97 version also features Tin Machine's Reeves Gabrels and was originally going to be on Earthling but was cut. “I thought ‘Baby Universal’ was a really good song and I don’t think it got heard. I didn’t really want that to happen to it, so I put it on this album,” Bowie said in 1997. “I think this version is very good.”

--

PETER BJORN AND JOHN - "DRAMA KING"

Here's another song from Swedish trio Peter Bjorn and John's upcoming Endless Dream. The jazzy "Drama King," one of John's contributions to the album, is a nice understated pop song and the video's fun too.
