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 Taylor Swift’s soaring ‘Say Don’t Go’, the best vault track on 1989 (Taylor’s Version); serpentwithfeet’s ‘Damn Gloves,’ a sultry, throbbing dance track that features Ty Dolla $ign and South African vocalist Yanga YaYa; ‘Watercooler’, the delicate, ethereal lead single off Grandaddy’s first album in 6 six years; Yard Act’s dancey, tongue-in-cheek new single ‘Dream Job; Chelsea Wolfe’s sludgy, ominous ‘Whispers in the Echo Chamber’, the second preview of her forthcoming album; and ‘Forgot to Grow’, a captivating new single from London’s High Vis.
