New Music Friday:

I put together a Spotify playlist of the songs that I talked about and thought about today for New Music Friday. Click here for that!

  • First up – Lyell. BUT – even before that I need to bring up the Blink-182 song that I played at the beginning (clip) That’s “I Miss You” – lots of people have poked some fun at this song (clip) Understandably so, but it is popular. Back to Lyell, who I’m a fan of. She did “Kiss Kiss Bang Bang”, recently “Just My Type” and now – a remake of that Blink song. Here’s Lyell’s version of “I Miss You” (Clip)
  • Don’t be turning to Sufjan Stevens for a pick me up song with the 2nd release off of his upcoming album. We did already receive the very somber sounding piano ballad: “So You Are Tired” (clip) Alright, so the 1st release isn’t a pick me up either. Sufjan never really “rocks out” though. James Taylor. His album – Javelin – does a full drop on October 6th, but today here’s that 2nd release: “Will Anybody Ever Love Me?” – smile everyone (clip)
  • Okay – I promise I’ll try sending along some happiness today. Initially, I really was smiling when I saw that we got a new song from Sia (clip) Via People magazine, “Sia Says She Was ‘Severely Depressed’ Following Her Divorce and states ‘I Was in Bed for 3 Years’.” (Elf clip) Please know that I am not making fun of anything there because I know that depression is a very serious problem. We all just need a hug sometimes. Hug ’em. Not that double tap pat on the back junk. Hug ’em until they release. That can be tricky though. Don’t hold on too long and make them need to yank themselves. (confused clip) Sorry – Sia’s first new album since 2016 – it’s coming out next year though – 2024. We’re at that time of year where we are going to be saying that more & more – next year. Let’s play a little more of her new song which I do really like and is called: “Gimme Love” (clip)
  • Several quick hits of new music: *NSync got a new song – 1st one in over 20 years. They made the song “Better Place” for the new animated movie Trolls Band Together. Song is out in 2 weeks, and the movie is out on Nov 17th // Following up their “Vampire Empire” song, Big Thief got another new song out called “Born for Loving You.” Vinyl fans, both of these songs will appear on a 7″ vinyl 7″ due out on October 20th // Green Day keep releasing out some of the “extras” that are going to appear on their 30th Anniversary Dookie album due out on Sept 29th – 2 weeks away. The coffee chugging trio sing “409 in Your Coffeemaker” (clip) Random Green Day fact – 2/3 of the band – Billie Joe Armstrong and Mike Dirnt set up their own coffee company back in 2015 and its called Oakland Coffee Works
