This Week’s Best New Songs: Nilüfer Yanya, caroline, Big Thief, and More

    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 best new music segment.

    On this week’s list, we have Nilüfer Yanya’s ‘midnight sun’, the cathartic and mesmerizing new single from the British songwriter’s second album, PAINLESS; ‘Sunset’, a wondrous acoustic highlight from the third chapter of Beach House’s Once Twice Melody; Big Thief’s ‘Simulation Swarm’, another elusive yet captivating cut off their forthcoming double album; ‘Running With the Hurricane’, the confident new offering from Camp Cope’s upcoming album; Jenny Hval’s ’Year of Love’, an evocative single in which the Norwegian artist reflects on her relationship with the institution of marriage; caroline’s ‘Good morning (red)’, a pensive slow burn from the London-based eight piece’s eponymous debut; and ‘Quicksand’, the glistening, poppy second single from Hatchie’s upcoming sophomore album.
