This Week’s Best New Songs: Clairo, Young Jesus, Horse Jumper of Love, 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 Clairo’s ‘Sexy to Someone’, the incredibly catchy, homespun lead single from her Leon Michels-produced third LP Charm that splits the difference between the sound of her last two albums; Horse Jumper of Love’s windingly beautiful new single, ‘Wink’, featuring Wednesday’s Karly Hartzman; ‘Shame on the Devil’, the woozy yet vulnerable single from Vince Staples’ new album; ‘Rich’, the profoundly raw and haunting centerpiece of Young Jesus’ new album The Fool, which takes a moment to really sink in; Amyl & the Sniffers’ riotous anthem ‘U Should Not Be Doing That’; Youth Lagoon’s gorgeous, enchanting new song ‘Lucy Takes a Picture’; Been Stellar’s evocative, slow-burning ‘Pumpkin’; and Fashion Club’s ‘Rotten Mind’, a hauntingly ethereal collaboration with Julie Byrne.
