This Week’s Best New Songs: Charli XCX and Lorde, Horse Jumper of Love, Lunar Vacation, 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 ‘The girl, so confusion version with lorde’, a momentous collaboration that turns a song about a potential feud into one of mutual insecurity, vulnerability, and love; Beach Bunny’s infectious ‘Vertigo’, a self-described “bop about self-sabotage”; Crack Cloud’s dreamy and delightful ‘The Medium’; Fontaines D.C.’s warm, beautifully swirling ‘Favourite’; Horse Jumper of Love’s heavily ethereal ‘Snow Angel’, featuring Squirrel Flower and MJ Lenderman; Lunar Vacation’s beautiful, enveloping ‘Set the Stage’, which leads the band’s sophomore album; Jamie xx’s lush, playful Robyn collaboration, ‘Life’; the Japanese House’s bright, giddy new song ‘:)’; ‘I Said What I Said’, the uniquely tender new song from the Softies’ first album in 24 years; and ‘Fake Out’, the explosive lead single from Why Bonnie’s sophomore LP.
