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.

"I wrote this song about social inequality," says singer/lyricist Charlie Manning. "Not mine but the people I saw around me. I feel like the whole premise of poverty is presented like this game in which if you play your cards right you can escape. In reality it's more like playing a game of dice when they're loaded against your favour. Constantly being struck by lightning and being told that it will never happen again."

"I wrote it thinking about my daughter who was deep into her terrible twos at the time but I hope it works as an all-purpose song of love and obligation, whenever you feel that you're doing all the work to hold things together and you just need a tiny bit of help." Field Music's new album, Flat White Moon is out next week.

GOAT GIRL - "SAD COWBOY" PVA MIX

Goat Girl have taken one of the best songs from this year's On All Fours, "Sad Cowboy," and have handed it over to some of their friends -- Tony Njoku, PVA, DJ Dairy (black midi) and Nídia -- to remix. It's out May 7 and they've shared the PVA remix now. "We loved the original track so much, so when we were asked to remix we couldn’t wait to dive in to all the stems," say PVA. "It started when we took a loop from the percussion take and layered more and more vocals on top and it created a sort of trance like state. The ending came from us playing around on our drum machine with a zen delay, recording that audio in and sampling it. The final product is sort of a ‘sunbathing in Ibiza and suddenly you’re hit by a meteor shower’ take on the track."

RINA SAWAYAMA & ELTON JOHN - "CHOSEN FAMILY"

Elton John joined Rina Sawayama for a new version of "Chosen Family" from her debut album SAWAYAMA. "It was such a joy and honour to rework 'Chosen Family' with the legendary Elton John," Rina says. "The song means so much to both of us, and recording it together was such a special experience I will never forget. I got shivers when I heard his voice through the monitor and became emotional when he added the piano parts. Elton has been such a huge supporter from before the album, and when we finally met to record this song we clicked from the get go. I hope people can hear the magic!"

Barbara?! It’s you?! Barbara?! Maya [TEKE::TEKE’s vocalist] then had the idea of taking the story to another level by turning it into this psychedelic tale of ‘Yokai’ (‘ghost’ or ‘spirit’) that escapes a house and goes on doing all sorts of pranks on people, that spirit being Barbara.”

Lawrence Rothman's new two-part album, Good Morning, America and Not a Son, is due out June 25 via KRO Records, and the latest single features Amanda Shires.

I then wrote the song 'Thrash The West' about coming to terms with, and finding a new way to compartmentalize, the demon that has haunted me."

GIRL IN RED - "YOU STUPID BITCH"

"There’s this line from this movie I love, The Perks of Being a Wallflower that goes ‘we accept the love we think we deserve,'" girl in red, aka Marie Ulven, says of her new single "You Stupid Bitch." "It’s a very heartbreaking line, but it’s really what I was experiencing in this situation, where I was always there for this person who would get their heart broken, and I would just come running. I would drop everything just to be there for them. That person would never see me as anything else than just a friend, even though I feel like I could’ve made her so happy… The core essence of this track is like, I’m obviously here for you, and I want to be with you, but you keep messing around with other people, and you keep getting broken. It’s this really direct, straightforward track." It's from her new album, if i could make it go quiet.
