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.
This week, we have a gorgeous collaboration between Moses Sumney and Little Dragon, a reworking of ‘Another Lover’ from Little Dragon’s latest album that finds the two artists playing off each other in irresistible ways. Hayley Williams shared a lovely and intimate demo that appears on her new Petals for Armor: Self-Serenades EP, while Bill Callahan and Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy enlisted Mick Turner for a darkly hypnotic cover of Robert Wyatt’s ‘Sea Song’. Lande Hekt lays out her insecurities on the latest single from her debut album, the seasonally appropriate ‘December’, while the latest preview from Another Sky’s upcoming winter EP is stirring and expansive.
