From The Strokes to Charli XCX, What's Your Favorite New Music Release This Week? Vote!

Artists chipped in more quarantine blues this week, with special regards to The Strokes returning to the music scene with their first album in seven years The New Abnormal, which toes the line between experimental and classic guitar rock. Charli XCX ditched the delicate dance by releasing her explosive, AutoTune- and synth-heavy "Forever" track from her new album she's been wrapping up during quarantine.

Tory Lanez, meanwhile, might be the only one feeling like a free man these days after dropping his The New Toronto 3 mixtape and his last project with Interscope Records, evident right in the fighting first words of "Letter to the City 2" -- "Soon as you hear this verse, I'm out the record deal." While some artists prefer to take the solo route, many new collaborations sprung up this week, including another Latin trap banger from the Black Eyed Peas titled "Mamacita" featuring Ozuna and J. Rey Soul, to the EDM-pop crossover jam "Midnight" from Alesso featuring Liam Payne to the neo-soul lullaby "Inside Friend" by Leon Bridges featuring John Mayer.
