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.
Coco & Clair Clair — "TBTF"
Atlanta's ultra-glamorous indie-pop queens Coco & Clair Clair have returned with "TBTF," another sublimely plush record produced with meltycanon. Their debut album can't come fast enough.
Kate NV — "Telefon - Instrumental"
Kate NV's new instrumental version of Room For The Moon is far from just a fans-only curio, and this version of "Telefon" is proof — there's so much to find in these new vocal-less takes.
Miss Madeline — "Lullaby"
Miss Madeline's new single "Lullaby" is thee premier pop girl anthem: "I'm coming to terms with being perceived as heartless, ruthless, and realizing it goes hand in hand with being the 'life of the party' and a 'money machine'," she said of the song in a statement. In a word: iconic!
Sufjan Stevens & Angelo De Augustine — "It’s Your Own Body And Mind"
The highlight from Sufjan Stevens and Angelo De Augustine's new album is this folky banger inspired by Spike Lee's She's Gotta Have It, a low-key song of empowerment that's brighter and less verbose than Stevens' usual work.
