This week, Beck released a new song from his upcoming tenth album, and the Wu-Tang Clan dropped its first single as a collective since 2014.
Here are the 5 best songs from the past week that you can stream right now:
Wu-Tang Clan — “People Say” (feat. Redman)
Led off by two sharp verses from Method Man and Raekwon, and featuring an intricate 16 bars from longtime Wu affiliate Redman, “People Say” finds the Wu-Tang Clan uniting in peak form on its first collective single in three years.
Four Tet — “SW9 9SL”
Syd — “Bad Dream / No Looking Back”
Fresh off an acclaimed solo album, Syd, the lead singer of indie-R&B band The Internet, returns with a slow-burning and intimate two-part single about the space between falling in love and getting “too attached.”
King Krule — “Czech One”
English singer-producer Archy Marshall (King Krule) rap-sings in abstract, introspective verse over hazy, keyboard-led production on his latest single, “Czech One.” The song is accompanied by a fantastic surrealist video.
Beck — “Dear Life”
On “Dear Life,” the latest single from the genre-shifting multi-instrumentalist Beck, existential dread comes packaged in the form of an upbeat pop song, filled with bizarre and obtuse imagery.
