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 Yard Act’s new 8-minute single, the self-reflective and wildly euphoric ’The Trench Coat Museum’; Jamila Woods’ duendita-featuring ‘Tiny Garden’, a tender celebration of slow love and self-growth; yeule’s gentle, darkly hypnotic ‘dazies’, the lead single from their new album softscars; ‘Running’, an exhilarating highlight from Snõõper’s debut LP; Angie McMahon’s poignant, cathartic new single ‘Letting Go’, which leads her sophomore record; DJ Koze’s ‘Wespennest’, an enchanting collaboration with Sophia Kennedy; Slaughter Beach, Dog’s ‘Float Away’, a sprightly song about heartbreak; and Another Michael’s ‘Angel’, a wistfully stunning cut from one of two albums they announced last week.
