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.

Today is also a Bandcamp Friday, and you can find more new music in our roundup of today's Bandcamp exclusives.

THE JOY FORMIDABLE - "BACK TO NOTHING"

After releasing "Into The Blue," The Joy Formidable have now announced their new album (also called Into The Blue and due August 20 via Enci Records) and shared its second single, "Back To Nothing." It's a catchy indie rock song that's as ethereal as it is anthemic.

COLDPLAY - "HIGHER POWER"

Coldplay are back with new single "Higher Power" which was a collaboration with megaproducer/hitmaker Max Martin. Chris Martin told Apple Music's Zane Lowe, "I think that we've been very blessed to have some songs that some people like over the years, largely through tenacity and perseverance, because there's thousands of ideas that don't even make it past the drumming department. But a song like 'Higher Power,' in our whole catalog, there's probably 15 songs where that's happened where it basically just… lands. Yeah, actually Will said, 'I really like this.' And that was our first session altogether with Max Martin. Altogether at that early stage. And so I sent them the demo and then they started working on it and Will texted me and said, 'This is going to be really good.' Which I've had that maybe twice."
