This Week’s Best New Songs: Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds, This Is Lorelei, Kamasi Washington, 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 ‘Wild God’, the triumphant five-minute title track from Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds’ new album; Kamasi Washington’s ‘Prologue’, the dazzling and kinetic new single from the jazz multi-instrumentalist’s first album in six years; ‘Dancing in the Club’, the lead single from Nate Amos’ new album as This Is Lorelei, a play on romantic fuck-ups that’s vulnerable yet soaring and vibrant; Philadelphia musicians They Are Gutting a Body of Water, Greg Mendez, and SUN ORGAN’s entrancing collaborative track ‘krillin’; a gorgeous, mesmeric new Wild Pink song called ‘Air Drumming Fix You’; ‘If It’s Gone’, a sunny, captivating heartland rock tune from Austin’s Good Looks; ‘Big Swimmer’, the beautiful first single and title track from King Hannah’s new album, which features vocals from Sharon Van Etten; and Mei Semones’ wonderfully intricate new song, ‘Tegami’.
