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. 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.

DIANA ROSS - "IF THE WORLD JUST DANCED"

I spent the last year and a half writing and releasing a new Azure Ray record, which I am really proud of. It wasn't easy finding time to focus, with all of us home all of the time. School has now been in session for 2 weeks and I already have one song written, recorded, mixed and mastered! I feel energized, focused and inspired and I think the song reflects this. I hope it brings the listener to a place where they feel spontaneous and carefree. This is the first song of what will become an EP, eventually... more to come! Thank god for school :)!"
