The best new music from last week!
Welcome to the #XPlist where we compile a list of the best new, music! Here are our picks for the best tunes from the last week.
Coldplay – All I Can Think About Is You
Coldplay’s latest track ‘All I Can Think About Is You’ is one of their best tunes in recent times. The song’s foundations rest on a super groovy bass line which repeats endlessly. The rest of the band builds on the bass line to create something truly refreshing. Completed with sparse guitar work and the typical Coldplay piano bits. We can’t wait to hear what they have in store for us next!
The Killers – The Man
The Killers are set to release a brand new album in September this year and are kicking things off with ‘The Man’, their first single from the album. It’s one of their most danceable tracks yet, with clear influences from disco and funk music incorporated. A perfect way to get your head bobbing and feet stomping, ‘The Man’ showcases the potential that their upcoming album holds.
DJ Khaled – Wild Thoughts ft. Rihanna, Bryson Tiller
DJ Khaled is simply ruling the charts. He’s collaborating with some of the biggest names in the pop music industry which makes for some great entertainment. This time around, DJ Khaled is back with ‘Wild Thoughts’ that features none other than the good girl gone bad, Rihanna and rapper Bryson Tiller. The result is compelling, but we’d love to hear a song where DJ Khaled is the only person on the track. Maybe next time.
Arcade Fire – Creature Comfort
Another band with an album out soon, Arcade Fire released their first single ‘Creature Comfort’. Featuring some groovy synth vibes, and a really cool vibe overall, with some of the best lyrics we’ve heard on a pop song in recent times. With their next album Everything Now out next month, it’ll be interesting to hear what they have up their sleeves. Our guess is that it’ll be some of the more sensible pop music that’s around at the moment.
Queens of the Stone Age – The Way You Used to Do
Queens of the Stone Age are back, and this time they’ve got a special friend with them. This special friend is super-producer, Mark Ronson who’s worked with the likes of Adele, Amy Winehouse and Bruno Mars. At the first glance, it’s an unlikely collaboration. However, given the affinity for all things retro that Mark Ronson and frontman Josh Homme share, it isn’t really surprising. With just one listen to their new track, ‘The Way You Used to Do’, you know that whatever they’re trying, it’s sure working. Ginger Elvis is back.
