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 ‘God Turn Me Into a Flower’, a majestically enveloping highlight from Weyes Blood’s new album that finds Natalie Mering relaying the myth of Narcissus; Romy’s latest Fred Again.. collaboration, the clubby and hauntingly cathartic ‘Strong’; ‘Wasted on You’, the pleasantly delicate yet existential lead single from Andy Shauf’s new album; Fucked Up’s invigorating new song ’Found’; Shame’s anxiously soaring ‘Fingers of Steel’, the lead offering from their third record Food for Worms; and ’My Blood Runs Through This Land’, a sprawling, emotionally captivating preview of Black Belt Eagle Scout’s upcoming LP.
