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 MGMT’s ‘Mother Nature’, the warm, heartfelt lead single from their first album in five years; DJ Sabrina the Teenage DJ’s glistening, euphoric new track ‘Say What You Mean’; Olivia Rodrigo’s ‘Can’t Catch Me Now’, a gorgeously haunting folk-rock ballad from the Hunger Games prequel The Ballad Of Songbirds & Snakes; ‘Pressure on the Pulse’, a frenetic highlight from Sen Morimoto’s new LP; Vyva Melinkolya’s starkly enchanting new single, ‘222’, which features backing vocals from Ethel Cain; and The Last Dinner Party’s stunning new song ‘On Your Side’.
