Fiona Apple, Playboi Carti and Brett Eldredge brought a week of comeback music, and it's bound to hold fans over quite well during quarantine. But which new music release is doing the trick for you?

Apple's fifth album, Fetch the Bolt Cutters, bridges the eight-year gap between the art-pop singer-songwriter's last project, with piano crescendos, cymbals crashing and other sonic anomalies only the 42-year-old artist could pull off. As she lyrically breaks free from society's decades-old grasp on her, Playboi Carti resiliently thwarts hate from his enemies in his first solo music since his 2018 debut album Die Lit, titled after the expression that couldn't better signal his negligence: "@MEH." While the 23-year-old's spirited mumble rap over clinking beats resembles a Super Mario Bros background track or evoke's Lil Uzi Vert's recent chart-topping venture Eternal AtakeBrett Eldredge ended his two-year hiatus with a much different sound. The country singer-songwriter croons "Gabrielle" over a nostalgic piano-pop melody with a soft-rock edge that expands his genre soundscape as far as the ear can hear.

So which new music release will you keep coming back to throughout the weekend? Vote below!
