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.

RIHANNA - "BORN AGAIN"

Rihanna has released her second song in six years, and like the first, it's a ballad for the Black Panther: Wakanda Forever soundtrack. This one was written by her past collaborator The-Dream.

BROCKHAMPTON - "THE ENDING"

Brockhampton have shared another taste of their upcoming final album The Family, and it finds the group rapping over soul sample-infused production that sounds straight out of the early Kanye era.

LADYTRON - "MISERY REMEMBER ME"

Ladytron are usually known for their driving rhythms but "Misery Remember Me" is much more of an ethereal dreampop song, drifting into Cocteau Twins territory. “We can try and try, but we’ll never escape who or what we are," says the band's Helen Marni. "And with that realization, we must embrace the now, but always allow ourselves to dream. 'Misery Remember Me' encapsulates this ethos." Ladytron's new album, Time's Arrow, is out January 20 via Cooking Vinyl.

THE BLESSED MADONNA - "SEROTONIN MOONBEAMS" FT UFFIE

The Blessed Madonna (aka Marea Stamper who previously went by The Black Madonna) is back with her first single in five years. "Serotonin Moonbeams" is an ecstatic house track featuring lead vocals from Uffie whose verse melody is a little reminiscent of Suzanne Vega's "Tom's Diner." She says: “We talked about what it was like to fall in love in the Vicks Vapo-rub, candy soaked raves of the 90s. It's about 'cuddle puddles' and the intense emotional, physical and spiritual connections that can form when serotonal conditions are right. Barriers that might exist in a normal dating atmosphere evaporate and strangers can become intimate and beloved figures in an instant. It's gotten an incredible response since I tested it the first time in Brazil on tour. It was written on one of those days where I was running from the production console to the sofa to bang out lyrics with Uffie and Jin Jin. I remember being so embarrassed to suggest, "Bet I hit you with that bad bitch, thunder lightning, super frightening yeah!" But when I did, they just howled and we knew we were onto something.”

SUNRISE HWY - "KINKY AFRO" (HAPPY MONDAYS COVER)

Sunrise HWY, aka the Brooklyn duo of Amy Douglas and Tim Wagner, are back with their first new music eight years, a cover of Happy Mondays' classic 1990 single "Kinky Afro." Says Amy, "This is just the beginning of much to come, a new chapter celebrating a partnership over a decade long that has carved itself into the New York landscape."

--

O. - "OGO"

Sax and drums, that's all you need. At least for London duo O. who have just released their debut single via Dan Carey's Speedy Wunderground label. "OGO" is funky and skronky...skrunky? Fronky? Pretty good.

ESHU TUNE (aka HANNIBAL BURESS) - "KNEE BRACE"

Eshu Tune is the rap alter-ego of comedian Hannibal Buress, whose recognizable voice works very well over this woozy beat from Haile Supreme.

--

MASSA NERA - "ADRIFT"

Year-end lists are already coming out, but there are still great 2022 albums on the way, like Massa Nera's Derramar | Querer | Borrar, which arrives on December 2 and is shaping up to be one of the year's finest screamo records. Here's another taste of it.

--

AKAI SOLO - "UPPER ROOM" (ft. ARMAND HAMMER)

Underground Brooklyn rapper AKAI SOLO just dropped his new album Spirit Roaming, and there's a lot of cool stuff on there, including closing track "Upper Room," a collaboration with Armand Hammer that was produced by frequent Armand Hammer collaborator Messiah Musik.

JAY WORTHY & DJ MUGGS - "A-WAX & O-DOG" (ft. MC EIHT)

Former Cypress Hills producer DJ Muggs stays busy helming entire albums for younger rappers that keep the sound of mid '90s hip hop alive, and that includes the new album by Jay Worthy, What They Hittin 4. One of the tracks also includes a verse from underrated West Coast legend MC Eiht, who sounds as hungry on this song as he did 30 years ago.

--

DOUGIE B - "SPINNIN" (ft. B-LOVEE & CORDAE)

Two rising New York drill rappers, Dougie B and B-Lovee, come together on this new anthem, which also includes a verse from a very-non-drill rapper, Cordae, whose style fits better than you might've guessed.

Kingston reggae singer Samory I has a new album arriving in 2023 via James's Overstand Entertainment and Easy Star Records, and the first single is "Blood in the Streets."

The deluxe edition of Sharon Van Etten's fantastic 6th LP, We've Been Going About This All Wrong, is out now, and included on it is the gorgeous, atmospheric new song "When I Die," which fits right into the cinematic mood of the album. Pre-order it on custard vinyl.

--

ZACH BRYAN - "FIFTH OF MAY" & "THE GREATEST DAY OF MY LIFE"

I guess rising country star Zach Bryan thought a 34-song album and 9-song EP wasn't enough new music for 2022, because he just dropped two new singles. And as long as he's gonna continue striking gold like this, let's keep those Zach Bryan songs coming.

ELLE KING - "JERSEY GIANT" (written by TYLER CHILDERS)
