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 2015 songs from Pharrell, Prince, Beach House and more right here!
Last week, Apple Music launched with plenty of exclusive new songs from a number of big-name artists, but one of the best songs involved in this event had to be Pharrell's new, powerful track "Freedom." We think that this song's title speaks for itself, reaching new heights for the artist and this new online music medium. Check out this amazing new tune right here!
If you weren't aware that Prince is arguably the best musician and songwriter ever, his latest song "HARDROCKLOVER" is sure to stand as the proof for years to come. Though he's definitely not as young or popular as he used to be, this new track should quiet any doubters out there saying Prince has lost his edge. Take a listen to this great new song right here:
Beach House will release their new album next month, entitled Depression Cherry, and this week we were treated to the first taste of the duo's next chapter with the new song "Sparks." Fans of the dream pop outfit are sure to fall in love with this dreary, mesmerizing new track, full of droning synths and overwhelmed with somber vocals. Take a listen to this new song right here:
Pop songstress Santigold released the brand new song "Radio" this week, which is featured on the soundtrack to this summer's coming of age movie Paper Towns starring Cara Delevingne.
