King Princess – “Only Time Makes It Human”
King Princess has made her return with a video for her new single “Only Time Makes It Human.” The new track, which was produced by King Princess and Mike Malchicoff with co-production from Mark Ronson, marks the artist’s first new material since the deluxe edition of Cheap Queen. The accompanying video, which was directed by King Princess’ partner Quinn Wilson and animated by Pastelae, sees a 3D avatar of King Princess watching the real Brooklyn artist performing the track on a television screen.
New Order – “Be A Rebel (Renegade Spezial Edit)”
New Order have shared their first new single since 2015, which is a Renegade Spezial edit of “Be A Rebel.” The new single taps into New Order’s relationship with club culture, and it comes as part of the band’s partnership with Adidas. The new mix marks an extended edit of the Adidas _nwrdrSPZL promotional video soundtrack. The accompanying video to the track stars English National Ballet dancer Rentaro Nakaaki.
Lana Del Rey – “Let Me Love You Like A Woman”
While gearing up for the release of her forthcoming album Chemtrails Over The Country Club, Lana Del Rey has shared a new track called “Let Me Love You Like a Woman.” The album’s lead single, “Let Me Love You Like a Woman,” is a stark piano ballad that is much more raw than any of the tracks on Norman Fucking Rockwell.
Lowell – “Lemonade”
Toronto and Los Angeles based singer-songwriter Lowell has made her return with a new track called “Lemonade.” The modern piano ballad comes packed with soul, and feels reminiscent ’70s acts like Carole King, with a modern twist inspired by R&B artists like Frank Ocean. “Lemonade” revolves around the timeless idea of toxic positivity, as Lowell delivers lyrics like, “How the fuck you gonna make lemonade out of everything.”
Cloud Nothings – “Am I Something”
Cloud Nothings have kept busy sharing new music via the group’s Bandcamp page during the COVID-19 pandemic, and now Dylan Baldi and Co. have announced a new physical record for early 2021 and unveiled a Lu Yang-directed video for the single “Am I Something.” “Am I Something” is a rip-roaring number that tracks with the messaging in the band’s tweet re: Albini. Watch the psychedelic video for the latest from Cloud Nothings below.
The Weather Station – “Robber”
Singer-songwriter Tamara Lindeman has returned with new material under her The Weather Station banner, a single and self-directed video for “Robber.” It marks Lindeman’s first release since her outstanding 2017 self-titled debut album. The new tune arrives via Next Door Records (Canada) and Fat Possum (Rest of the World). Check out the “Robber” video below.
Dizzy – “This Must Be The Place (Talking Heads cover)”
Dizzy have announced their new Basement Covers EP, which will arrive on November 13th via Royal Mountain Records and Communion Records. The band has also shared a cover of the Talking Heads’ “This Must Be The Place.” “‘This Must Be The Place’ took on a new meaning once quarantine hit,” frontwoman Katie Munshaw said in a release. “We chose to cover it because it seemed like the perfect push and pull between being on the road and missing home and missing being on tour with your band while being stuck in quarantine.”
Josie Man – “Grow”
Josie Man has shared a new track called “Grow,” which sees her bringing together her two cultures, as she’s a daughter of both Hong Kong and Orpington, through music. “When I was little and surrounded by both my Cantonese-speaking and South East London family, I invented my own language and my own universe of colours and symbols,” Man explains. “I learnt that there is more than one way to be. Rules of being can be blurred.”
Spooky Mansion – “Baby’s New Man”
Spooky Mansion have released a sun-drenched indie rock single called “Baby’s New Man.” The confessional new tune revolves around a former lover, who is now with someone else, and lyrically explores the time it takes to understand that when it’s over, it’s over.
