This week, Miguel released a new single from his upcoming album, and Tame Impala dropped a collection of new B-sides and remixes.
Tame Impala — “List Of People (To Try And Forget About)”
Tame Impala’s new collection of B-sides from their critically acclaimed 2015 album “Currents” features a stellar track in “List Of People,” a captivating, melancholy piece of their distinctive brand of psychedelic synth-rock.
Talib Kweli — “Traveling Light” (feat. Anderson .Paak)
With a triumphant, horn-laden beat from Kaytranada and a charismatic chorus from Anderson .Paak, “Traveling Light” stands out on rapper Talib Kweli’s first album in six years, “Radio Silence.”
The National — “Maybe Not” (Cat Power cover)
The National puts its own somber spin on Cat Power’s 2003 piano ballad “Maybe Not,” adding strings and a guitar to the contemplative track for a new Spotify single.
The Diplomats — “Once Upon a Time”
Dipset rappers Jim Jones and Cam’ron trade emphatic verses over a searing soul-sample beat on “Once Upon a Time.” At one point, Cam’ron raps about Jay-Z’s former associate Dame Dash slapping Harvey Weinstein on a movie set in 2003.
Miguel — “Pineapple Skies”
Alternately channeling the vocal stylings of Marvin Gaye and Prince, Miguel’s upbeat new single “Pineapple Skies” is the latest compelling track from his upcoming fourth studio album, “War & Leisure.”
