New Music Friday – June 21, 2019


New Music Friday Playlist – June 21, 2019

The summer solstice has passed, but we still have many light days ahead, and great tunes to last us through the long days. First, Jack White and Brendan Benson‘s band The Raconteurs are back with their first album in a decade. Joining them are ragged punks Titus Andronicus, indie electronic group Hot Chip, indie pop band Fruit Bats, and mega-producer Mark Ronson.

In singles, we’ll all get to find out if Lil Nas X is more than a one-hit wonder as he releases his debut EP containing “Old Town Road”. Blink-182 are dropping their second single from their still-untitled next album, and Sum 41 are dropping their third. Nineties pop rock veterans Goo Goo Dolls are back with a new single, and indie rock heroes Cold War Kids released two new songs this week.

One special release is a previously unheard song from Freddie Mercury (technically it’s a different version of a previously released song “Time”), but still a must-hear for any Queen-fanatic. I could go on and on, but best you just follow and listen to the NMF Playlist above, or take a listen to some of the new releases below!
