Dionne Warwick – “Nothing’s Impossible” (Feat. Chance The Rapper)

After some playful ribbing about his name — “If you are very obviously a rapper why did you put it in your stage name? I cannot stop thinking about this,” Dionne Warwick famously tweeted last year — Chance The Rapper announced that he was teaming up with the octogenarian pop legend for a duet to fight food insecurity. That duet has now arrived.

Jonny Greenwood – “Licorice Pizza”

Paul Thomas Anderson’s new film Licorice Pizza hits select theaters today, with Alana Haim in a starring role. The movie’s soundtrack is mostly filled with music contemporaneous to its 1973 setting, but frequent PTA collaborator Jonny Greenwood did contribute at least a little bit of score to it. The Licorice Pizza Original Motion Picture Soundtrack is out today and it features a Greenwood track called, you guessed it, “Licorice Pizza.”

Thus far in 2021, the bugged-out guitar wizard and entertaining online personality Ryley Walker has released one album of his own, the impressive Course In Fable, and he’s teamed up with improv legend David Grubbs for the collaborative LP A Tap On The Shoulder. Walker has also opened for Dinosaur Jr. on tour, which must’ve been pretty cool. And today, Walker has dropped a whole new album out of the blue.

Bloc Party – “Traps”

Bloc Party haven’t released an LP since Hymns way back at the beginning of 2016, but they’re set to change that in 2022. The band will release their sixth album Alpha Games in April. It’s produced by Nick Launay and Adam Greenspan, a duo who’ve worked together on projects by Nick Cave, Arcade Fire, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, IDLES, and more. Alpha Games is billed as a return to the high-energy post-punk sound of early releases like Silent Alarm, and lead single “Traps” certainly bears that out.

Failure – “Submarines”

Failure, the cult-beloved ’90s alt-rock band, released three albums before breaking up in 1997. In 2014, Failure got back together, and they’re about to release their third album since that reunion — a nice symmetry for those two runs. Failure’s new LP Wild Type Droid is coming in a few weeks, and they’ve already shared first single “ .” Today, we also get to hear the new joint “Submarines.” It’s a grungy, expansive track built around a deep, riff-driven groove.

Brian Wilson & Jim James – “Right Where I Belong”

Just a few days ago, the legendary Beach Boys sonic mastermind Brian Wilson released At My Piano, a new album that collects Wilson’s solo-piano renditions of his own classic songs. Today, Wilson has shared an altogether new song. It’s called “Right Where I Belong,” and it’s a collaboration with Jim James, the My Morning Jacket leader whose own songs certainly bear the stamp of those old angelic Beach Boys harmonies. Wilson wrote “Right Where I Belong” for the soundtrack of Long Promised Road, th...

Naima Bock – “30 Degrees”

A couple years ago, Naima Bock left Goat Girl — the band she formed with her friends when she was still a teenager — to focus on making music on her own. Today, she’s releasing her debut solo single, “30 Degrees,” which she worked on with Joel Burton of the band Viewfinder. “30 Degrees” is hushed and mournful, with Bock’s deep voice at the center. “This song came out of the adolescent duality of fear and freedom and deals primarily with goodbyes,” she said in a statement. “The small ones, which ...

Elder & Kadavar – “From Deep Within” & “El Matador”

Last year, Elder, the great psychedelic doom institution from Massachusetts, released a very good album called Omens. It came out right before the COVID era, which put an end to all of Elder’s plans to tour behind the record. Earlier this year, though, three of the four members of Elder travelled to Berlin and got together with the German band Kadavar, a like-minded crew of proggy stoners, and formed a sort of super-band called Kadavar. (Elder bassist Jack Donovan couldn’t travel to Germany, so ...

Molly Nilsson – “Pompeii”

Last month, Molly Nilsson announced a new album, Extreme, her 10th overall and her first since 2018’s Twenty Twenty. She shared lead single “Absolute Power” at the time, and today she’s back with another new track, “Pompeii.” It’s the album’s closing track and it builds to a massive explosion, much like the fated city that gives the song its title. “The deepest desire I can’t explain/ If it wasn’t for love then it’s all in vain/ Did they feel this way that night in Pompeii?” Nilsson sings in the...

Pusha T & Mako – “Misfit Toys”

Pusha T has teamed up with EDM singer/producer Mako on “Misfit Toys,” a new song from the soundtrack to Netflix’s animated League Of Legends series Arcane. “I remember the moment we connected and heard Pusha T’s first pass, everything felt like lift off,” Mako says in a statement. “He came at it with such authenticity and passion and energy. After that first clip, I caught him using this word, ‘misfits,’ and it immediately clicked for us to lean into that type of ‘misfit toy’ energy that [Arcane...

Ted Leo & Jeppeson Airplane – “Into The Conquering Sun”

It’s been more than four years since Ted Leo released his solo album The Hanged Man, and in a new update today he says not to expect another one anytime soon, though he does have ideas. “I’m a bit adrift with no real time or goals or visible future for my life/career as an artist, so it’s largely remained in the ‘continuously adding notes’ phase for a while,” Leo writes. “Some good notes! Lotta stuff to draw on! But I haven’t done much writing with it all, until I got the assignment I needed fro...
