Last week, the UK singer Rebecca Lucy Taylor aka Self Esteem released her sophomore album Prioritise Pleasure, an assertive and nuanced exploration of contemporary womanhood, to widespread critical acclaim. One of the standout tracks there is the uptempo “Moody,” which carries the record’s most recent visual.
The Swedish singer Snoh Aalegra has earlier this week released a video for her song “Neon Peach,” a playful track off her 2021 third album Temporary Highs in the Violet Skies. Among other things, the visual finds the songstress and her collaborator Tyler, the Creator goofing around inside petri dishes.
Indie legend Cat Power is making Ryan Gosling’s song her own with the newest single for her upcoming all-covers album, aptly titled Covers. Her version of “Pa Pa Power” comes with new original lyrics and a video full of slow motion.
The band Wet have recently released their third full-length record, Letter Blue, and have been promoting the occasion with a drop of two Gia Coppola-directed music videos for the album tracks. The one for “Larabar,” a sparse autotune-assisted ballad, is notable for its usage of multiexposed shots.
Singer-songwriter Jenny Lewis has dropped a new song, previously already performed on tour at her shows supporting Harry Styles. “Puppy and a Truck” is classic Jenny, candid and ironic lines over assured guitar strum—this time, about literally getting a puppy and a truck as coping with midlife crisis.
Jessie Ware joins Kylie Minogue on “Kiss of Life,” a new track on the recent reissue of the Australian diva’s 2020 album, Disco: Guest List Edition. The grainy hyperstylized music video takes us to an absurd dancey evening at Jessie’s restaurant.
Yesterday, singer-songwriter Lindsay Jordan released her sophomore album as Snail Mail, Valentine, to widespread critical acclaim. Her most recent music video before the drop was one for “Ben Franklin,” the catchy second single from the record.
Nilüfer Yanya is gearing up for the release of her sophomore album Painless, which she announced yeasterday along with sharing its first song “Stabilise.” The accompanying music video, directed by the musician’s sister, the creative director Molly Daniel, explores how dressing up “as a spy or a rockstar” is the only way to escape the hopelessness of the mundane routines.
Charli XCX recruits longtime friends and collaborators Christine and the Queens and Caroline Polachek for the second single off her upcoming fifth studio album Crash, out next spring. The video for the track reimagines the trio as performers on a fictional late night TV show, hosted by comedian Benito Skinner.
The Swedish singer Tove Styrke becomes a frontwoman for an increasingly popular band in the music video for her latest single “Start Walking.” The period piece of a video ends in flames after her and other musicians attain superpowers.
Earlier this month, the American artist Hayden Dunham released her debut eponymous EP as Hyd on the prominent PC Music label. A standout track on Hyd is “Skin 2 Skin,” produced by the label head and longtime collaborator A.G. Cook and affiliate Caroline Polachek.
Late last month, the Nigerian star Tems released a music video for her most recent single, “Crazy Tings,” coming from the singer’s September EP If Orange Was a Place. In the video, the songstress literally dances thorugh the life’s problems.
The Haitian-Canadian producer Kaytranada is joined by the decorated Filipino-American singer-songwriter H.E.R. on the title track from this week’s Intimidated EP, a three-track record that also features the Angeleno multiinstrumentalist Thundercat and the Newark-based Haitian rapper Mach-Hommy.
Madrid’s finest C. Tangana duets with the Argentine singer Nathy Peluso on “Ateo,” a bachata narrating of a love so strong it turns both artists into believers, to which the two blissfully dance through the video otherwise pierced with social commentary and religious imagery.
Grimes is back with a first new original track since her early last year’s fifth studio album. “Player of Games,” coproduced by the Weeknd collaborator Illangelo, is a massive club-ready number, a first off the musician’s upcoming Book 1 project.
This week, SZA has finally officially released “I Hate U,” a longtime fan favorite that had previously existed in the form of a track on the singer’s unofficial SoundCloud and enjoyed significant popularity on social media.
