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 Rosalía’s new single ’SAOKO’, which distorts a classic reggaeton hook into something bizarre and all the more infectious; Lucy Dacus’ one-off single ‘Kissing Lessons’, a heartfelt song reminiscing on first kisses that would fit right into the world of her latest album Home Video; Kamasi Washington’s first single of 2022, ‘The Garden Path’, which fuses chaos and euphoria; Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever’s ‘The Way It Shatters’, the driving and anthemic lead single from their upcoming album Endless Rooms; a dynamic new standalone track from illuminati hotties called ‘sandwich sharer’; Circuit des Yeux’s warm and enthralling ‘The Manatee (A Story of This World)’; yeule’s ‘Bites on My Neck’, an ecstatic yet intimate highlight from their new album Glitch Princess; and SASAMI’s comforting new single ‘Call Me Home’, the latest cut from her upcoming LP Squeeze.
