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.

WILLIE NELSON - "COTTAGE FOR SALE" (FRANK SINATRA COVER)

Bob Dylan is not the only classic artist to release multiple albums of Frank Sinatra covers. That's Life is Willie Nelson's second album covering songs that had been recorded by The Chairman of the Board and it's out February 26. (His first was 2018's My Way.) The first single is "Cottage for Sale" that appeared on Frank's 1959 album No One Cares. While the orchestral backing could've been Ol' Blue Eyes, the voice could only be Willie's.

GEORGIA - "RUNNING UP THAT HILL" (KATE BUSH COVER)

Covering Kate Bush has been a regular part of Georgia's live set for a while, and now she's recorded a studio version of "Running Up That Hill." "Closing my live sets with 'Running Up That Hill' has been a pure joy, and it sparked the idea to record it," she says. "But it didn’t start there, Kate Bush has been part of my life and a major influence on my work since I could sing a note. Her music was always played by both my mum and dad, and when I began to understand the way that sound and production worked, I embarked on my own intimate and personal journey with her music. For me, it was more than just a cover, it was emotional, and an experience I’ll always treasure."

BILL CALLAHAN & BONNIE 'PRINCE BILLY' W/ DAVID PAJO - "I LOVE YOU" (JERRY JEFF WALKER COVER)

This week's Bill Callahan/Bonnie 'Prince' Billy collab-a-thon entry tackles "I Love You" by the late Jerry Jeff Walker. As always with these, they bring in a third collaborator to provide the backing and this week it's David Pajo (Slint, Papa M). They keep things in the Texas vibe of the original, but take it just a little south of the border with some lovely horns, stretching things out just a little too. Will Oldham sings lead, with Callahan providing backing vocals. As they sing "Gettin' out of bed just ruins my whole day," with horns a blazin', it sounds like a sunset. But lets hope there are more of these to come.

"There is always the presence of an evil, dissonant force running through each piece, sort of like the sound of a burning, screaming migraine." More here.
