This Week’s Best New Songs: Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Alvvays, Death Cab for Cutie, 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 Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ cinematic, slightly ominous, and altogether captivating ‘Burning’, the second preview of their forthcoming album Cool It Down; Alvvays’ ‘Easy on Your Own?’, a swirling, infectious song that packs a whole lot of emotion in just a few minutes; ‘Dance Now’, the catchy yet intricate lead single from JID’s upcoming album, with guest appearances from Kenny Mason and Foushée; High Vis’ latest single, the driving and anthemic ‘Trauma Bonds’; Claude’s ‘meet me’, an entrancing highlight off her debut album a lot’s gonna change; a stirringly potent spoken-word track from Death Cab for Cutie titled ‘Foxglove Through the Clearcut’; and Rat Tally’s ‘In My Car’, the stunning, evocative title track from her debut LP, which features Madeline Kenney.
