MIXTAPE MONDAY: Check Out New Songs from Kanye West, St. Vincent, James Blake & More
Each and every week we put together our favorite tracks that had premiered a few days prior into one magnificent mixtape to share with you and your friends. This time around we've decided to share new 2016 songs from Kanye West, St. Vincent, James Blake and more right here!
It might be strange to talk about any other music this week, but we were treated to some great tracks aside from Yeezy's latest.
We recently reported on the brand new Com Truise track, "Diffraction." Have a listen now!
The Thermals are back in 2016, and from the sounds of the band's newest song, "My Heart Went Cold," we're all in for a treat! Check it out right here!
Remixes turn out to be as good, if not better than the original tune that is being remade, but this week's "Money, Cash, Hoes" from lyricist Freddie Gibbs has us a little confused. Yes, the song shares the same title as the hip-hop hit from Jay Z and DMX, but it's definitely Gibbs' new take on this ... concept that has us all talking. Have a listen right here:
While Gibb's new track is somewhere in the middle of a remix and a brand new song, we can safely say that the next few songs on the mixtape are straight-up covers - but that shouldn't downplay how great they are.
As part of the upcoming soundtrack for the film A Bigger Splash, rock n' roll alien goddess Annie Clark, aka St. Vincent, recorded a great cover of the Rolling Stones' hit "Emotional Rescue." Listen to this new take on a classic right here!
Meanwhile, Pearl Jam frontman Eddie Vedder this week announced the news that he'd provide music for the a new Netflix animated series entitled Beat Bugs, which would feature the songs of The Beatles. Vedder shared his cover of "Magical Mystery Tour" to help announce the news. Have a listen right here!
Another early '90s frontman decided to share some covers this week, too. Rivers Cuomo of Weezer covered Fetty Wap's smash hit "Trap Queen" this week. Don't believe us? Check out our previous coverage of this cover here!
We definitely can't leave out this great Depeche Mode cover from Omar Rodríguez-López (At the Drive-In, the Mars Volta) and Teri Gender Bender. Listen to this 2016 take on "I Feel You" right here!
UK crooner James Blake is known for his own covers and remixes, but this week he premiered a new original song entitled "Modern Soul." Fans are sure to get excited about 2016 now that we've heard new music from Blake! Listen to this track right here:
We know you're still riding the high from the James Blake track, so let's keep the dreaminess going with a brand new song from Yeasayer. Listen to "Amen & Goodbye 6" right here:
If you're looking to share some music with a pal or a significant other, we think that this new mix is perfect for such a gift! Enjoy these songs together!
