This Week’s Best New Songs: Beth Gibbons, Kacey Musgraves, claire rousay, 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 Beth Gibbons’ ‘Floating on a Moment’, the lead single from the Portishead singer’s long-awaited solo debut, a meditation on death that somehow feels at once warm, beguiling, and transcendent; Kacey Musgraves’ soft, understated new single ‘Deeper Well’; Amen Dunes’ ‘Purple Land’, a complex character portrait that leads his new album Death Jokes; claire rousay’s drifting, crushingly intimate ‘head’, the lead single off her new LP sentiment; Liam Kazar’s breezy new track ‘Next Time Around’; ‘On Tonight’, the warm, captivating new single off Rosali’s upcoming LP; ‘ice’, Erika de Casier’s sticky, playful collaboration with Tampa rappers They Hate Change; ‘Nothing Like’, another captivating preview of Mannequin Pussy’s new record; and Yard Act’s dancey, Katy J Pearson-assisted ‘When the Laughter Stops’.
