Happy almost Halloween! I wouldn’t say there’s anything scary about this week’s new releases, except that they are from some of the most critically loved artists out there today!
Far better than the war of their namesake, The War on Drugs are back with their latest album of guitar-goodness. Beloved 90’s songstress Tori Amos has returned with her first new album in ages, and two other high-quality folk/country-inspired songwriters, Billy Bragg and Hayes Carll, are dropping their new albums today. We’ve enjoyed post-hardcore band Calling All Captains‘ recent singles, so we’re excited to have the full album out at last.
Any alt rock fan from the 90’s is going to be excited to hear the new single from Lit (back in rock form after a sojourn into country music on their last album). Reggae sensation Matisyahu has teamed up with Salt Cathedral again for his latest single, and the Peach Tree Rascals are back at it with a Halloween-appropriate song.
Walk the Moon have another new song out (probably just to get us pumped for their show in LA next month), and Ke$ha has teamed up with Grandson and Travis Barker for a slamming new one. Other heavy-hitters with new music out today are Spoon, Midlake, Beach Bunny, Frank Turner, Macklemore, Aimee Mann, Deadmau5, Papa Roach and Elvis Costello! We also get a surprise return of Cobra Starship, with the first of two previously unreleased tracks!
And as always, we love highlighting newer artists who we haven’t shared before, so we’re throwing in new songs from Charlotte Sands, ME Rex, Dutch Mustard, Brigitte Mean, Hypnotic Kingdom, The Ghost Club, Agath Christ, Ali Warren, Mystee, The Roseline, Anxious and Sad Boys Club.
Hear all of this new music and more in our New Music Friday Playlist!
