Throughout the week, we update our Best New Songs playlist with the new releases that caught our attention the most, be it a single leading up to the release of an album or a newly unveiled deep cut. And each Monday, we round up the best new songs released over the past week (the eligibility period begins on Monday and ends Sunday night) in this segment.
On this week’s list, we have the new collaboration from Tyler, the Creator and Maxo Kream, who delivers lines like “I’m the trap Barack Obama” over a triumphant horn sample on ‘Big Persona’; the new single from illuminati hotties, ‘Threatening Each Other re: Capitalism’, which is less energetic but no less captivating than any of the previous teasers from Sarah Tudzin’s upcoming album; ‘White Horses’, the magnificent opening track from Low’s new album; Nation of Language’s new single ‘A Word & A Wave’, which captures the emotional fluctuations of our day-to-day social lives over an engrossing synth backdrop; Circuit des Yeux’s beautifully epic ‘Sculpting the Exodus’, the second offering from her upcoming album -io; the unnerving, dynamic new single from Francis of Delirium, ‘Come Out and Play’, which veers the project in an intriguing shoegaze direction; and ‘Guerilla’, another vibrant, playful cut from Remi Wolf’s forthcoming debut.
