Spotify came out with their weekly “New Music Friday” playlist this past Friday, and it contained 80 songs. These are thirteen tracks that should be put on your personal playlist.
Gryffin & Bipolar Sunshine- “Whole Heart”
I’ve already played this song damn near 20 times since it came out two days ago. A catchy, upbeat song that will have you singing the chorus over and over.
Big Gigantic (Feat. Logic & ROZES)- “All of Me”
This song was released August 17, but Big Gigantic dropped his album a few days ago (August 26). Check out the entire album if you get a chance, because every song is worthy of listening to. Big Gigantic recruits an extremely diverse lineup with artists like Pell, GRiZ, Waka Flocka Flame, and Cherub.
Florence + The Machine- “Wish That You Were Here”
Right after releasing 3 songs for “Final Fantasy XV,” Florence is back with a new song for Tim Burton’s upcoming film, “Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children.”
This hard-hitting song will make you bob your head back and forth with its groovy bass-line and cutting synths.
The Head and the Heart- “Rhythm & Blues”
This song, like the other singles off their upcoming album “Signs of Light,” showcases a slightly different sound from The Head and the Heart than what we’re used to. The music may be moving in a different direction, but this album will be great. I can't wait to see them in NOLA October 26.
Rob $tone (Feat. D.R.A.A.M., Denzel Curry, and Cousin Stizz)- “Chill Bill (Remix)”
Rob $tone dropped the original two years ago, and it finally got the remix it deserved. This song is lit. Period.
Empire of the Sun- “High and Low"
Empire of the Sun is back with “High and Low” as well as the album title track “Two Vines.” “High and Low” stays true to Empire of the Sun’s original, vibrant sound. “Two Vines” comes out October 28.
Troye Sivan- “WILD” (Young Bombs Remix)
Young Bombs puts his special touch on this remix. This is a great song to start off your Friday night.
Glass Animals- “The Other Side of Paradise”
Glass Animals is back again with the peanut butter vibes! Sit back and let this song sooth your ears. Their album "How to be a Human Being" was released August 26. "Life Itself" and "Season 2 Episode 3" are two other notable songs.
LOLO- “Heard it From a Friend”
This song made me an instant fan of LOLO. The song sounds like it would be the theme song for season 3 of “True Detective.” Her album “In Loving Memory of When I Gave a Shit” is out September 9.
Goodbye June- “Daisy”
Goodbye June’s EP “Danger in the Morning” was released August 26. “Daisy” is just 1 of the 5 amazingly unique songs. Listen to the song “Darlin’” if you’re looking for something a little slower. I haven’t heard much on this band, but I’m excited for what’s to come.
Bishop Briggs- “River” (BURNS Remix)
BURNS takes a great song and creates a remix that is sure to get your adrenaline pumping. This song goes in!
Butch Walker- “East Coast Girl”
This is Walker’s lead single from the album “Stay Gold” released August 26. I love the production of this song; it brings those classic rock vibes that make you smile.
