It's impossible to be across all the new music out each Friday. Luckily, PAPER is here to help you out: each week, we round up 10 of our favorite new songs from artists — emerging and established — to soundtrack your life. From the surreal to the sublime, these songs cover every corner of the music world. The only criteria: they all have to absolutely rip.
Azealia Banks — "Tarantula"
The first of two new Azealia Banks tracks follows up her triumphant recent run of shows in New York with a pummeling techno beat and a foreboding, dramatic vocal tone. It's a perfect Halloween treat.
"Wings of a Butterfly," on the other hand, is also a techno track, but with a smoother, pop-oriented vocal. "All the boys go crazy for me," she sings, before ripping into a punkish yowl. It's a stunning display of AB's versatility.
Jessy Lanza & Loraine James — "Seven 55"
On Instagram, Jessy Lanza said that all of her mixes thus far have been leading up to her forthcoming DJ-Kicks mix, and if "Seven 55," a collaboration with Loraine James, is anything to go by, it's going to be something special.
daine — "Cemetary Dreams"
This moody new one from daine is heart-rending and beautiful, a ballad that recalls 2000s classics while fitting neatly in the rest of daine's oeuvre.
