Now that new music comes out every Friday – though not always on every streaming service – it can be hard to know where to find the next great song.
To help you out, Business Insider compiles this rundown of the best new music you can stream right now.
This week, The Weeknd released a single with Daft Punk, and Detroit rapper Danny Brown premiered a fresh new track on Apple Music.
Check out this week’s best new songs:
Danny Brown — “Tell Me What I Don’t Know”
Detroit rapper Danny Brown premiered a new song from his upcoming “Atrocity Exhibition” LP on Apple Music’s Beats 1 radio this week. Brown aptly described the cinematic-sounding track about street violence in his hometown as “like a scene in ‘The Warriors.’“
Sugar for Sugar — “Bizarre Love Triangle”
Outside of her fame in film, Scarlett Johansson has quietly had a secondary career as a singer for nearly a decade. The actress’s new band, Sugar for Sugar, debuted a stellar cover of a New Order song for an upcoming charity album benefitting amfAR, an AIDS research foundation.
NxWorries (Anderson .Paak & Knwledge) — “Lyk Dis”
The music of NxWorries – the duo of talented singer/rapper Anderson .Paak and producer Knwledge – recalls ’70s soul legends like Al Green and Curtis Mayfield with a hip-hop edge. “Lyk Dis,” the group’s smooth and explicit new single, finds .Paak rapping and singing about the art of lovemaking.
Hamilton Leithauser + Rostam — “The Morning Stars”
“I Had A Dream That You Were Mine,” the great new album from Hamilton Leithauser (The Walkmen) and Rostam Batmanglij (Vampire Weekend), drifts enjoyably from doo-wop soul to folk and old school rock. “The Morning Stars” is a propulsive and affecting highlight.
The Weeknd — “Starboy” (feat. Daft Punk)
The French robots hook The Weeknd up with a first-rate industrial beat, and the Canadian singer continues to find new and compelling ways to write about his favorite subjects – wealth, drugs, and fame – on the soon-t0-be hit single “Starboy.”
