This Week’s Best New Songs: Beyoncé, Ekko Astral, Merce Lemon, 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.

    This week’s list includes DIIV’s latest single, the softly entrancing ‘Everyone Out’; ‘Mary Boone’, the lush fourth single from Vampire Weekend’s new album; Blondshell and Bully’s grungy, infectious collaboration ‘Docket’; Jessica Pratt’s delicate yet profound ‘World on a String’; Merce Lemon’s ‘Will You Do Me a Kindness’, which is warm and intimate yet explodes with emotion; Crumb’s enchanting new single ‘AMAMA’; Ekko Astral’s unsettling and explosive ‘devorah’, the lead single off their debut LP; ellis’ vulnerable new single ‘it’ll be alright’; Chastity Belt’s nostalgic Laugh’; and ‘YA YA’, an electrifying standout from Cowboy Carter.
