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 Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ first new song in nearly a decade, the explosive, triumphant ‘Spitting Off the Edge of the World’ featuring Perfume Genius; the Mountain Goats’ ‘Training Montage’, the first single from their upcoming album Bleed Out, which was inspired by movies from the ’60s, ’70s, and ’80s; Florist’s profoundly moving ‘Sci-Fi Silence’, the latest offering from their forthcoming self-titled LP; ‘nothing (in my head)’, Pinkshift’s soaring, infectious first single for Hopeless Records; Beth Orton’s gorgeously revelatory ‘Weather Alive’, the title track from the British artist’s recently announced new album; and Flasher’s latest single, the confident, propulsive ‘I’m Better’.
