This Week’s Best New Songs: Caroline Polachek, Sharon Van Etten, Pusha T, 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 the colorful and epic new single from Caroline Polachek, ‘Billions’, co-produced by Danny L Harle; Pusha T’s hard-hitting new track ‘Diet Coke’, co-produced by Kanye West and 88-Keys; Sharon Van Etten’s lush, driving new single ‘Porta’; ‘My Babe’, the final advance track from Spoon’s new album, which starts loose and low-key but intensifies as it goes on; ‘Promise Is a Pendulum’, a stunning acoustic highlight from Big Thief’s new double LP; and Helena Deland’s haunting new song ‘Swimmer’, which was inspired by her mother’s battle with a terminal illness.
