This Week’s Best New Songs: Bat for Lashes, Young Jesus, Microwave, 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 Bat for Lashes’ beautifully ethereal ‘The Dream of Delphi’, which leads Natasha Khan’s first album in five years; ‘Fool’, a lovely, joyful new song from Adrianne Lenker’s new album; Microwave’s ‘Bored of Being Sad’, the anthemic lead single from the Atlanta pop-punk band’s new album Let’s Start Degeneracy; Lightning Bug’s ‘December Song’, the quietly striking first single from their upcoming album No Paradise; Young Jesus’ powerful new song ‘Brenda & Diane’, which embraces heartland rock to tell the story of two runaways; MGMT’s stunning ‘Dancing in Babylon’, an ’80s-inspired power ballad with Christine and the Queens; Moor Mother’s latest single, the haunting, anguished ‘All the Money’, featuring Alya Al Sultani; and ‘Fibbs’, the heartfelt, emotive new track from Morgan Morris and Verity Slangen of the Edinburgh duo No Windows.
