This Week’s Best New Songs: Waxahatchee, Julia Holter, Erika de Casier, 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 the lead single from Waxahatchee’s new album, a magnificent and gently composed duet with MJ Lenderman called ‘Right Back to It’; Julia Holter’s lush, dizzying new song ‘Spinning’, which leads her next album; MGMT’s affecting and hypnotic ‘Nothing to Declare’, the latest single from their upcoming LP; ‘Friend of a Friend’, a stunning, Amnesiac-esque cut from the Smile’s second album; Jamie xx’s euphoric club banger ‘It’s So Good’; Erika de Casier’s nostalgic, mesmerizing new track ‘Lucky’; Faye Webster’s hypnotically off-kilter collaboration with Lil Yachty, ‘Lego Ring’; and Courting’s catchy, enticing new single ‘We Look Good Together (Big Words)’, which features production from DJ Sabrina the Teenage DJ.
