It’s springtime, and that means new music is coming in time for the summer. Some of the heavy hitters have been releasing/leaking new singles. Here’s a few to check out.
My Morning Jacket – Evil Urges – Is available off the band’s website. MMJ have really stepped their game up since their 2005 LP, Z. This tune has some really pretty strings, galloping guitar interplay, and of course, Jim James’s trademark falsetto. The disc of the same name is due June 10.
Weezer – Pork and Beans – You may have seen our earlier post this week about the 30 second clip of the new Weezer tune, but now the full thing has leaked. Mark my words: It’s AWESOME. It’s got shades of the blue album crunchiness, the odd pop culture references a la El Scorcho (Sample Lyric: Timbaland knows the way to reach the top of the chart/Maybe if I work with him/I can perfect the art). I look forward to their third self titled album (also known as The Red Album) on June 24. .
Madonna ft. Justin Timberlake – 4 Minutes – I can’t stand it when the banging stops! Naw… The beat’s a bit tacky, but I can’t get it out of my head. Uh oh. Hard Candy is due April 29.
