This Week’s Best New Songs: Nilüfer Yanya, Thom Yorke, Porter Robinson, 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 Nilüfer Yanya’s mesmerizing new single ‘Like I Say (I runaway)’, which marks her signing to Ninja Tune; Thom Yorke’s ‘Knife Edge’, a pensive, delicately haunting song from his Confidenza soundtrack; Porter Robinson’s infectious, cheeky new single ‘Knock Yourself Out XD’, in which he declares, “Bitch I’m Taylor Swift!”; ‘Challengers: Match Point’, a track from Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross’ tense, exhilarating score for Luca Guadagnino’s new film; Bat for Lashes’ lovely, swirling new song ‘Home’; mui zyu’s enchanting ‘the rules of what an earthling can be’; Florist’s poignant contribution to the I Saw the TV Glow soundtrack, ‘Riding Around in the Dark’; and ‘All Born Screaming’, the ambitious and strangely hopeful closing title track of St. Vincent’s latest LP.
