This Week’s Best New Songs: Peggy Gou, Killer Mike, Vagabon, 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.

    This week’s list includes Killer Mike’s ‘Scientists and Engineers’, a hypnotic collab with André 3000, Future, and Eryn Allen Kane that delivers on all fronts; Peggy Gou’s latest single, ‘(It Goes Like) Nanana’, a ridiculously catchy summertime dance anthem; ‘lily pad pupils’, a slow-burning standout from Home Is Where’s new album The Whaler; Vagabon’s ‘Can I Talk My Shit?’, the buoyant lead single from her upcoming LP; ‘I don’t mind’, a gorgeous, mesmerizing single from Brooklyn composer Cassie Wieland’s debut record as Vines; ‘Klettur’, a menacingly dynamic highlight from Sigur Rós’ first album in a decade; and Pretenders’ ‘I Think About You Daily’, a beautifully poignant ballad that’s elevated by Jonny Greenwood’s string arrangement.
