For the first time in three years, Justin Timberlake finally has some new material. Feast your eyes and ears on “Can’t Stop the Feeling!” from the Trolls soundtrack. After that, give a listen to Radiohead’s new single, Pink Floyd’s new vinyl revival, Chance the Rapper’s live TV set, Danny L Harle’s single with Chairlift, the full stream of Death Grips’ latest LP, and a surprise EP from Dawn Richard.
Even Justin Timberlake‘s contributions to animated movies are something to freak out over. The N*SYNC member and solo artist just shared “Can’t Stop The Feeling!” It’s written for the Trolls soundtrack, but it’s not just for kids. His first new song in three years is groovy, infectious, and full of dance beats that get you vibing to an easy-to-follow beat. See you on the dancefloor. Whoever belts that high note with perfect pitch wins. [Rolling Stone]
Alas, the time has come. Radiohead announced their next album will be out May 8, but no one knows what the title is. Instead of revealing too much at once, they shared “Daydreaming” and it’s accompanying Paul Thomas Anderson-directed music video. The single comes as a calm before the frenzy fan storm, luring you in with a melancholy piano line before some cinematic orchestration sweeps over it, lifting you up into a place that’s unsettling but still somehow peaceful. Just wait for the end. Thom Yorke’s dark, twisted vocals may haunt you, reminding you that the end is near and they’re more than happy to harp on that. [Nerdist]
Vinyl lovers will be able to tell you in a heartbeat that the only way to hear Pink Floyd on record is to scrounge through record sale bins like a maniac. The psych rock icons haven’t released their material on wax in over two decades, but as of June 3rd, that will change. Pink Floyd Records will release new pressings of every record in their discography now throughout the rest of the year. Now it’s time to blast “Dark Side of the Moon.” [Consequence of Sound]
Chance the Rapper finally has his long-awaited mixtape, 3, set to release on May 13. For those who can’t wait any longer for it, give his live performance on The Tonight Show a listen. The Chicago rapper debuted a spiritual number full of jazz called “Blessings” with tons of energy and charm. What else were you expecting from Chance? [Rolling Stone]
PC Music won’t die anytime soon. If you don’t believe it, give Danny L Harle‘s new song a spin. The electronic bubblegum pop musician teamed up with Chairlift‘s Caroline Polachek for “Ashes of Love,” his standalone single out now on Soundcloud. “Caroline has a completely unique melodic style. It sounds like a kind of perfect, organic, distorted symmetry. I was so excited to work with her as I love her music, particularly Chairlift’s ‘I Belong in Your Arms,’ which I think is one of the best pop tunes I have ever heard in my life,” Harle raved in a statement. After hearing the track, we totally get what he means. [Consequence of Sound]
All you alt-everything fans have reason to cheer: Death Grips dropped their new album. Bottomless Pit is free to stream on YouTube, Spotify, and Apple Music in full. The experimental hip-hop LP is their fifth studio LP and the follow-up to last year’s Jenny Death. All 13 tracks can be pre-ordered via Third Worlds/Harvest Records. [Consequence of Sound]
Fresh off the release of her snappy single “Honest,” D∆WN (aka Dawn Richard) returns with a four-track EP. The release, titled Infared, sees her teaming up with Los Angeles producer Kingdom. It’s slick, moody, and a little bit sultry. Best of all, the whole thing is available to stream for free right this instant. [Pitchfork]
