A new batch of new music is here, and there are some pretty exciting new releases.
In our latest review, we’ll look at a handful of new tracks and see which are the new crop of things to check out this holiday season.
Here are the top 20 new music releases, along with a few other highlights from the year:1.
Zedd – “You Don’t Know Me” (Tame Impala)Zedd’s first album since 2014’s In Our Hearts, which he called “a journey through my own mind and body, an album that I wanted to do and it’s what I’ve done.”
The singer-songwriter, who is a big fan of the album, wrote the song on the phone with producer Kevin Parker, who wrote “Sisters,” which he co-wrote with producer/bassist Andrew McMahon.
This is the first album in five years that Zedd has recorded under his own name, which means he’s had time to build a rapport with his collaborators and write a song he’s proud of.
“You don’t know me, you don’t care about me, and we don’t have a lot of friends, so it’s hard to make it work,” he said.
“I’ve been so lucky.
I’ve been lucky to have a team that’s so good, that I can work with, and it makes me so happy.
That’s really cool.”2.
Taylor Swift – “Bad Blood” (Reprise)Swift’s biggest break came in 2015 when she released the follow-up to 1989.
In this year’s reissue, Swift returned to the pop songwriting formula that made her so successful and also, she said, a place where she wanted to focus her energy and focus on “something bigger than myself.”
She said that the record, which features songs from the new album, has “a lot of emotion, a lot more energy.”
Swift also added, “I didn’t want to be like a rock star anymore.
I wanted my life to be something bigger.”
She also said that she wanted the new record to be “really honest and true.”
Swift has a new album coming out soon, so we’ll have to wait to hear if she’s as candid with her songs.3.
Kendrick Lamar – “Humble” (Empire)Lamar’s third album, which was released in May, is an expansive and ambitious collection of songs that explore topics ranging from race and race relations to political activism.
Kendrick wrote and produced most of the tracks, but he also recorded the album himself.
The album includes “I Need a Plan,” “Flawless,” “Wolves,” “DNA,” “All of Me,” “Lil Wayne,” and “All Hands on Deck.”4.
The Weeknd – “Can’t Feel My Face” (Warner Bros.)
The Weeknd is known for having a distinctive voice, and his latest album is no exception.
“Can I Feel It?” is an album of tracks that have more of an aggressive sound than most of his music.
The songs are very focused on emotion and the way he expresses it.
Kendrick is also the first artist in years to have four solo albums released.
The new album features four songs from The Weekends new album “Love Story,” and it will be released on November 10.5.
Chance the Rapper – “Sugar,” “I Am” (Pitch Perfect)Chance and his crew have been working on a new EP for some time now.
It’s the follow up to 2014’s self-titled debut album.
The EP is titled “Sugars,” and the singer-guitarist has written the lyrics, along.
Chance is a fan of this album, as he said in a video.
He said, “When I was doing this album I felt like I was writing a song, I was like writing a thesis.”
Chance said that he wrote the songs himself.
Chance said, as a matter of fact, the new EP will be the “beginning of the end of the cycle for me, for my career.”6.
Zara Larsson – “I Feel Love” (A Perfect Circle)Larsson is one of the most versatile artists in the world, with a unique voice that allows him to create complex, emotive music.
In 2016, he released “Harmony,” an album about his relationship with his father, and the songs are a mixture of his father’s feelings for him and his mother’s feelings.
The song was featured on the soundtrack for the upcoming film The Theory of Everything, and he’s currently working on his sophomore album, “Witchcraft.”7.
Lil Uzi Vert – “Bombshell” (Björk)In 2016, Lil Uzz was in the studio with his producer and collaborator Björk, and they were inspired by the story of a woman who lost her husband to suicide, and ended up being able to get ahold of her husband
