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 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.

MC EIHT - "HONCHO" (ft. CONWAY THE MACHINE, prod. DJ PREMIER)

West Coast rap legend MC Eiht began making a comeback when he appeared on Kendrick Lamar's "m.A.A.d city" and then he released his first album in over a decade, the DJ Premier-produced Which Way Iz West, in 2017. Now he's set to follow it with Lessons on September 18 via Bluestamp. The new album also features DJ Premier, along with Griselda's Conway the Machine, on this gritty new single, plus several appearances by Eiht's former Compton's Most Wanted groupmate Tha Chill, as well as B-Real, Kurupt, Havoc, Talib Kweli, Kokane, and more.

TRICKY - "I'M IN THE DOORWAY" FT. OH LAND

“With most of my stuff, there's nothing else like it around,” Tricky says. “But with ‘Fall Please’ and ‘I’m In The Doorway’, it's my version of pop music, the closest I've got to making pop.” This single, featuring Oh Land, is definitely a little more pop...but Tricky's definition of "pop" is probably a little different than most. New album Fall to Pieces is out September 4.

SAMIA - "TRIPTYCH"

"I wrote 'Triptych' sobbing in a green room in Denver," Samia says. "I’d just read the story of Francis Bacon and his lover/muse, George Dyer, whose chaotic lifestyle served as Bacon’s artistic inspiration. George Dyer overdosed in the bathroom of a hotel room paid for by Bacon, who famously painted a triptych of his lover’s final moments. I had just been through a pretty tough breakup and felt I might be purposefully getting myself into dicey situations to justify my big feelings and write about them. 'Triptych' was a pretty blatant cry for help and an opportunity to confess my fear of being misunderstood." It's from her debut album, The Baby, due out on Friday via Grand Jury.

FENNE LILY - "SOLIPSISM"

"A lot of situations make me uncomfortable — some parties, most dates, every time I’m stoned in the supermarket," Fenne Lily says. "'Solipsism' is a song about being comfortable with being uncomfortable and the freedom that comes with that. If you feel weird for long enough it becomes normal, and feeling anything is better than feeling nothing. I wanted this video to be a reflection of the scary thought that I’ll have to live with myself forever. It’s surreal to realize you’ll never live apart from someone you sometimes hate. Dad, if you’re reading this you killed it as shopper number 2." Her sophomore album, BREACH, is out September 18 via Dead Oceans.
