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.

GHETTS - "IC3" (ft. SKEPTA)

UK rappers Ghetts and Skepta team up on "IC3," which is named for the code police used to identify Black suspects in the UK. As you'd expect from this pair and a song title like that, this is powerful stuff.

THE OBSESSED - "SPIRIT CARAVAN"

Doom legends The Obsessed will release an expanded edition of their long-out-of-print rarities compilation Incarnate, titled Incarnate Ultimate Edition, for the Record Store Day drop on October 24. It'll include this heavy-psych rarity, "Spirit Caravan," which Wino tells Metal Injection "is about making life as good and sweet as possible against a myriad of odds, and our strength which is the music and family created in its wake."

MASEGO - "SILVER TONGUE DEVIL" (ft. SHENSEEA)

Genre-defying musician Masego has a "concept EP" on the way, and its new single "Silver Tongue Devil" features fast-rising Jamaican singer Shenseea. It finds a balance between airy neo-soul, jazzy horns, Shenseea's dancehall vibes, and more.

KEVIN MORBY - "SUNDOWNER"

Kevin Morby's new album Sundowner is out next week and here's the album's gorgeous title track. “When I first moved back home to Kansas after having lived on both coasts for over a decade, I found myself - for the first time - dreading the sun going down," says Kevin. "This was a foreign feeling for me. In both Los Angeles and New York, I resisted the day light and thrived in the night - something I have sung about many times, most notably on my album City Music. But suddenly there I was, isolated in the Midwest in late autumn - the days growing increasingly shorter - chasing the sun as best I could.”

SUUNS - "BREATHE (FEAT. JERUSALEM IN MY HEART)"

"Typically when we work together, the process is slow and exploratory," says Liam O'Neill of Montreal's SUUNS on this collaboration with Radwan Ghazi Moumneh (Jerusalem My Heart). "In this case Moumneh had a specific form in mind, functioned as band director, and the song came together quickly. We all sat around one microphone playing acoustic guitars (this is probably the least on-brand thing SUUNS has ever done) over a drum loop. The real flavour of this jam comes from the Boss HC-2, a dedicated hand clapper, which Moumneh insisted had to be played very fast, relentlessly, the whole time.” SUUNS' new EP, Fiction, is out October 30 via Joyful Noise.

RESISTANCE REVIVAL CHORUS - "ALL YOU FASCISTS BOUND TO LOSE"

Resistance Revival Chorus, the collective of over 70 women and nonbinary vocalists, including Rhiannon Giddens, Valerie June, Deva Mahal, and others, release their debut album This Joy on October 16 via Righteous Babe Records, and the latest single is their take on "All You Fascists Bound to Lose," which Woody Guthrie originally composed. "Written in the midst of World War II, the lyrics were a response to the horrors of Nazi Germany abroad and to Jim Crow and centuries of racial terror being waged against Black Americans at home," they write. "Today, the power of Guthrie's rallying cry is as potent as ever. We offer up his words of resistance and unity as a clarion call to stare down the descendants of that same hatred that now upholds police brutality, places children in cages, and supports Nazi sympathizers. November 3 is just around the corner. Let's do what's within our power to VOTE THE FASCISTS OUT!"

Stripped bare and left in a state." It's got that A-ha rotoscope look to it.

New Zealand band Yumi Zouma release a reimagined version of their album Truth or Consequences on October 28 and here's its new single "My Palms Are Your Reference To Hold Your Heart." "“This version of the song we affectionately shorten to 'Palms' started with just a few chords that I'd tried out underneath the vocal melody – I felt a little stuck with what to do next, but I sent the minimal scraps I had along to Charlie anyway, so he could give it a crack," says the band's Christie Simpson. "When it came back the mood was completely transformed – into this sparkly, ABBA-esque dark disco feel that it has now."

--

MOURN - "STAY THERE"

Barcelona post-punky trio Mourn release their new album Self Worth on October 30 via Captured Tracks. New single "Stay There" matches skronky music to three-part harmonies. “'Stay There' is a song about ending an abusive relationship and the feeling of freedom afterwards," say the band. "Of course there's always sequels, but we're keeping the distance, telling them to stay there where they are and don't come bother us anymore. And also this song is about healing from that, even though it doesn't explicitly say that in the lyrics, this song served us to do so, to get all the negative and bitter feelings out of us.

HAERTS - "FOR THE SKY" FT. ED DROSTE

Grizzly Bear's Ed Droste sings on this single from HAERTS, their first new music since 2018. "When we finished the demo for the song I kept hearing Ed’s voice and just thought he would sound amazing on it," vocalist Nini Fabi says. "We didn’t know him at the time, but were such fans. When we reached out we honestly thought we’d never hear from him. But we did and we went into the studio in L.A., and ended up recording it just singing together in a room. Now that feels like such a nostalgic notion. But even then it was special. It was that feeling you get when you sing with somebody and something just clicks. And it’s especially crazy when you sing with a vocal force as Ed. I wish everybody could sing together more and feel that."
