This Week’s Best New Songs: Thursday, Sabrina Carpenter, GIFT, 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 Thursday’s explosive and triumphant ‘Application for Release From the Dream’, the band’s first new music in 13 years; Sour Widows’ pleading, cathartic new single ‘Cherish’; NYC band GIFT’s ‘Wish Me Away, a propulsive, glistening track about “giving into the feeling of everything slipping away”; Sabrina Carpenter’s infectious new song ‘Espresso’; Beth Gibbons’ eerie, mesmerizing ‘Reaching Out’, the second single from the Portishead frontwoman’s solo debut; Porches’ first single in three years, ‘Rag’, which remains captivating even as it keeps changing course; Liolimb’s poignant ‘Dream of You’, which features Angel Olsen; and claire rousay’s latest single, a delicately vulnerable apology song that uses Broken Social Scene’s ‘Lover’s Spit’ as a reference point.
