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 segment.
This week, Billie Eilish returned with a chillingly evocative new single, ‘my future’; blink-182’s Travis Barker linked up with Run the Jewels for a hard-hitting collab, following from their previous joint track ‘All Due Respect’ from RTJ2; London artist and Paul Institute co-founder A. K. Paul shared his third single, the groovy ‘Be Honest’, with the promise of new music soon; Angel Olsen unveiled a stunning, stripped-back song, ‘Whole New Mess’, the first teaser from her upcoming album; Touché Amore gave us the first taste from their first album in four years with the emotive ‘Limelight’; and Matilda Mann came through with an intimate, heartfelt ballad titled ‘Robbed’.
