This Week’s Best New Songs: A.G. Cook, Youth Lagoon, Sprints, 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.

    On this week’s list, we have A.G. Cook’s luminous, sputtering 10-minute single ‘Silver Thread Golden Needle’; the latest joyous offering from DJ Sabrina the Teenage DJ, ‘Anything Lost (Can Be Found Again)’; Sn​õ​õ​per’s chaotically endearing new track ‘for yr love’; ‘Heavy’, a blistering, anxiety-ridden track from Sprints’ just-released debut LP; Youth Lagoon’s dreamily minimal ‘Football’, which the musician described as a “celebration of failure”; and Katy Kirby’s intimate yet bold ‘Hand to Hand’, the latest preview of her sophomore record.
