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.

JAKE SHEARS - "DO THE TELEVISION"

Scissor Sisters' Jake Shears shares a bouncy new single, "Do the Television," in honor of Pride month. "'Do The Television' was first started about 12 years ago, written as an idea for the Scissor Sisters 'Night Work' album," he says. "I always really loved elements of the song, and wanted to give it a life, so I decided to re-record it with a brand new chorus. Influenced by both mid-era Bowie and Lionel Richie, its flavor is representative of this new batch of songs I've been writing. One of my favorite things about 'Do The Television' is its progression from feeling chilly & removed to warmth & abandon – ending in a very different place than where it starts. It’s about language and the loss of meaning, changing symbols, forgotten history and following the loudest voice in the room."
