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.

SNOOP DOGG - "NIPSEY BLUE"

Snoop Dogg pays tribute to the late Nipsey Hussle one day ahead of what would've been his 35th birthday (August 15) with this gospel-tinged new song.

FIRST AID KIT - "ON THE ROAD AGAIN" (WILLIE NELSON COVER)

Swedish duo First Aid Kit have shared a cover of Willie Nelson classic "On the Road Again." We recorded this cover a couple of years ago and recently found it while digging through the archives. The song is a country classic, it feels like we've known it forever. Because of the situation with COVID, sadly, the theme of the song has never felt more relevant than it does today." On a similar theme, First Aid Kit are donating all proceeds from the cover to Crew Nation, a charitable fund "created to help people working backstage that were supposed to be working on shows planned for 2020."

THE KILLERS - "DYING BREED"

The Killers' new album Imploding The Mirage comes out next week (8/21) via Island, and here's another single from it. Like a few of the previous singles, it finds them churning out arena-sized heartland rock and sounding more refreshed than they have in years.

MILEY CYRUS - "MIDNIGHT SKY"

The genre-hopping Miley Cyrus embraces bouncy '80s synthpop on her first new single of 2020, "Midnight Sky," which she tells Billboard is about fighting the stigma of divorce and which comes with a self-directed video inspired by Stevie Nicks, Joan Jett and Debbie Harry.

--

THE FRONT BOTTOMS - "FAIRBANKS, ALASKA"

Following their poppy 2017 album Going Grey, it sounds like The Front Bottoms are going back to a folkier, earthier sound on their upcoming Mike Sapone-produced album In Sickness & In Flames, as you can hear on this new song.

--

HOLY FAWN - "HF:/LHPN/SEER/REF2.ALT"

Holy Fawn (who we recently included on a list of essential songs from the shoegaze / heavy crossover) have released a reworked version of "Seer" from their 2018 album Death Spells. The original is already pretty ethereal and atmospheric, but this version is even more so. It's great stuff.

--

CHIKA - "MY POWER"

Anderson .Paak, Rick Ross, and producer Hit-Boy team up on this bright, booming, and pretty irresistible new track.

VENOM PRISON - "DAEMON VULGARIS"

Venom Prison have released the reworked version of "Daemon Vulgaris" (from their 2015 EP The Primal Chaos) off their upcoming album Primeval. The original is already pretty furious, but this version is tighter, better produced, and somehow even heavier.

--

DRAAGYN - "VENOM"

Draagyn has been stirring up buzz for her two singles that blend goth, psychedelic folk, doom metal, black metal, operatic vocals, and more, and here's her third song. This one leans heaviest on her folk side, but does make time for a metallic eruption, and it's another good one.

--

IN PARALLEL - "DEEP DARK"

In Parallel is the shoegaze band of Hopesfall's Ryan Parrish, and their new EP Fashioner (mixed by Failure's Ken Andrews) comes out September 4 via Wiretap. Here's the second single, which marries ethereal guitars to a propulsive beat and sounds a little like a moodier U2.

--

G PERICO - "TOOLIE" (PROD. GIRL TALK)

G Perico returns with another great dose of classic-style West Coast rap, this time produced by Girl Talk.

--

SMINO - "BACKSTAGE PASS"

It features Lil Durk and it finds Drake sing-rapping triumphant, horn-fueled production. It comes with a Dave Meyers-directed video that was filmed at Nike World Headquarters and features Drake getting his ass handed to him in one-on-ones against Kevin Durant, Odell Beckham Jr., and Marshawn Lynch.

ANNA VON HAUSSWOLFF - "ALL THOUGHTS FLY"

On her continued and successful campaign to make the pipe organ cool again, Anna von Hausswolff will release All Thoughts Fly in September which features just the artist and the organ. "I wanted to play with dissonance and polyrhythms to create a harmonic landscape that is constantly changing and expanding into something else," Anna says of the title track. "Everything you hear in this track, every little overtone and all ambience is entirely made through the organ. We used EQ but that's it. The overall idea was to create an illusion of flying thoughts, intertwining and entangling into each other. Different words and worlds happening at the same time, affecting each other and changing each other's directions and courses."

--

CHRISTINE AND THE QUEENS & CAROLINE POLACHEK - "LA VITA NUOVA"

--

PARTNER - "HELLO AND WELCOME" AND "ROCK IS MY ROCK"

Canadian band Partner will release their second album, Never Give Up on November 20 via You've Changed Records. The album was written and recorded over the last two years and the duo's mixture of witty social commentary and radical riffs remains in focus, as you can tell from these two songs.

--

PAUL DE JONG (THE BOOKS) - "THIS FLOWER WILL FADE AND DIE"

Paul de Jong, who was one half of experimental duo The Books, is back with this new track, which he created for friend and collaborator 97-year old musician and educator, Catherine Luening. Her husband was flutist and electronic music pioneer, Otto Luening, who de Jong worked for in the '90s. He had Luening read his poem which he then set to music, featuring Molly Jones on Flute. The video, directed by Paul, features Catherine Luening in her Manhattan apartment listening to the track for the first time.

--

QUASI - "THE THIN BLUE LINE LIE"

Quasi, aka Janet Weiss and Sam Coomes, have just shared a new single, "Last Days of the Thin Blue Line Lie." Weiss says, "We wrote 'Last Days of the Thin Blue Line Lie' in response to the American policing crisis and the recent turmoil caused by this crisis." The song samples the chants from the recent Portland protests, and Sam and Janet trade off lines like "left hook to the racist mind's eye / bye bye miss American lie" over a droney organ dirge.

--

THE FLAMING LIPS - "WILL YOU RETURN/WEHN YOU COME DOWN"
