This Week’s Best New Songs: Angel Olsen, Kelly Lee Owens, Arcade Fire, 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 gorgeously elegant, slow-burning title track to Angel Olsen’s forthcoming album Big Time; Arcade Fire’s uplifting, acoustic-led ’Unconditional I (Lookout Kid)’, the latest single from their upcoming album WE; ’Mirrors’, the title track to Francis of Delirium’s new EP, which matches anxiety-ridden lyrics with dynamic instrumentation; Kelly Lee Owens’ lush yet foreboding ‘One’, taken from her new album LP.8; and ‘easy’, the striking, synth-infused opener from Tomberlin’s new full-length.
