Come In Closer – Rhye
Feeling down and in need of a little serotonin boost? Then throw on your warmest pajamas and listen to this beautiful new track from Rhye’s upcoming album. This amazing new track follows some absolutely wonderful songs over the last couple months. We cannot wait for this album, but for now enjoy “Come In Closer.”
I Feel High – Poolside (ft. DRAMA)
One of our favorite laid back electronic artists, Poolside, teams up with duo, DRAMA, for a dreamy track that invokes the feeling of being high. As one of the more ethereal songs we’ve gotten from Poolside in a while, it still incorporates the typical vocals and vibes that we’ve come to love from Poolside.
Girl Like Me – Jazmine Sullivan (ft. H.E.R.)
Jazmine Sullivan did not come to play on her new album, Heaux Tales. She has crafted an incredible album full of features from today’s biggest R&B stars. On “Girl Like Me,” she recruits superstar, H.E.R., to make a song that puts both of these artists’ amazing voices on display. (Full album continued below)
The Bandit – Kings of Leon
It’s been a looong time since we’ve received new music from modern rock band, Kings of Leon. They have released two tracks that evoke the same feelings from their previous work. As their first release since their 2016 album, WALLS, “The Bandit” brings their typical rocking sound with emotional vocals and guitar playing. We’ll keep our ears out for more to come from them.
Critical – CamelPhat & Green Velvet
Green Velvet and Camelphat are both very highly respected artists in the game with lengthy and flourishing successes in music. This collaboration brings us the fun and dark sound of modern tech house, with a touch of funk!
Speak Now – Leslie Odom Jr.
From Broadway to Motion Pictures, Leslie Continues to impress us with not only his acting range but his vocal range. Check out this track from the soundtrack of Regina King helmed “One Night in Miami” which comes out on Amazon Prime January 15th.
Channel 43 – deadmau5 & Wolfgang Gartner
If you were around for Skrillex and Wolfgang Gartner’s “The Devil’s Den” back in 2011, then you’ll love this collaboration. Being fans of Deadmau5’s original sound, this one was a great surprise because it carries a more classic Deadmau5 feel that almost feels like a blast from the past. This track hits hard and is very electronic feeling, best played at any dance party or during a workout!
Smoke From Fire – Bas (ft. The Hics)
If you’re going to use the same title as a famous Maya Angelou, you better deliver something impactful and that’s exactly what Bas & The Hics did in their new single.
Album Heaux Tales – Jazmine Sullivan
Jazmine Sullivan’s first full album since 2015 is absolutely incredible. Featuring a slew of wonderful artists, she crafts a beautiful album that will bring out the emotion in you. Some of our other favorite tracks on the album are “Pick Up Your Feelings,” “On It (ft. Ari Lennox),” & “Pricetags (ft. Anderson .Paak).
Album Greenfields: The Gibb Brothers’ Songbook (Vol. 1) – Barry Gibb
The only remaining brother of the Bee Gees & the Gibb family, Barry Gibb, has released a beautiful new album of Bee Gees songs featuring awesome modern artists. As one of the all-time greatest groups, the Bee Gees have revolutionized music and we are here for these new releases. Some of our favorites are “Run To Me (ft. Brandi Carlile),” “How Deep Is Your Love (ft. Little Big Town & Tommy Emmanuel),” & “How Can You Mend A Broken Heart (ft. Sheryl Crow).”
EP The Game EP – Hatiras & Sebb Junior
With consistent releases all year, Sebb Junior has been killing the game. This EP is everything we need to start 2021 off right, with two ultra-fun and danceable tracks called “The Game Found Me” and “You Can Be Loved” that are both definite standouts of the week. Both have a similar vibe, with very clean and dancy percussions, plucking bass guitar, and some old school sounding synths that keep things feeling perfectly funky!
