Every week, Spotify updates their “New Music Friday” playlist, featuring 50 of the freshest new tracks hitting the service that week. On the heels of Billboard’s partnership with streaming giant, we’ll be tapping Spotify’s editors to sift through the soon-to-be-hits and highlight the best of the bunch. Check out the picks and list to the entire “New Music Friday” playlist below.
Kygo — “For What It’s Worth”
Kygo’s debut album Cloud Nine comes out today (May 13) and it’s filled with hits from top to bottom. “For What’s It’s Worth” teams the Norwegian DJ up with brother/sister duo of Angus & Julia Stone and provides a haunting finale to a satisfying listen.
OneRepublic — “Wherever I Go”
“Wherever I Go” screams summer anthem, and sees hit maker Ryan Tedder back at the helm of OneRepublic. The band’s upcoming 4th album is slated for a September release.
The Stone Roses — “All For One”
The Stone Roses achieved massive commercial and critical success in the late ’80s/early ’90s with classics like “She Bangs The Drums” and “I Wanna Be Adored.” “All For One” is their first new single in over 20 years, and it proves The Stone Roses haven’t missed a beat.
MO — “Final Song”
Written with MNEK, who also has a track in NMF this week, the Danish pop star says the song is “about reconnecting with your inner strength.” Let’s hope she found that inner strength, and it’s not actually her final song, because MO keeps getting better with every release.
Maren Morris — “Rich”
The singer/songwriter from Dallas, Texas is getting ready to release her debut album, Hero, later this summer. The lead single, ‘Rich’, is a major earworm that will keep you hitting repeat.
