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 Andrew Bird’s new single, a stirring reinterpretation of Emily Dickinson’s ‘I felt a Funeral, in my Brain’ featuring Phoebe Bridgers; ‘Limousine’, the striking lead single from Maria Jacobson’s second album as Fran, adorned by strings from Macie Stewart and Whitney Johnson; Anxious’ bright, catchy new song ‘Where You Been’; White Reaper’s punchy and melodic ‘Pages’; and Sofia Jenser’s tenderly intimate new Free Range track, ‘All My Thoughts’.
