This Week’s Best New Songs: Björk and Rosalía, Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy, body / negative

    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 Björk’s beautifully exuberant new song with Rosalía, ‘Oral’, which brings together strings, flutes, and a ‘90s dancehall-inspired beat, with proceeds helping to combat open net-pen fish farming in Iceland; Bonnie ‘Prince’ Billy’s lush, tender new single ‘Keeping Secrets Will Destroy You’, which did not appear on his album of the same name and was recorded with a different group of collaborators; and ‘sleepy’, a hauntingly evocative collaboration with Midwife from body / negative’s upcoming LP.
