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 Beyoncé, Drake, Future, Lady Gaga, Thom Yorke and more right here!
While British pop producer Naughty Boy is known for his collaborations with Sam Smith and former One Direction band member Zayn Malik, he's jumped to the top of the music industry, aka Beyoncé, with his newest track "Runnin' (Lose It All)." That's right. The in-demand music maker locked down the Queen Bey for one of the coolest songs of the year. Arrow Benjamin is also featured on the track. Check it out right here!
Speaking of the top of the music industry, rappers Drake and Future have teamed up for one of the most-talked about mixtapes of the year. The duo's collaboration is entitled What A Time To Be Alive, and is available for download right here!
Last week, we got a taste of the collaborative music endeavor Big Grams, which teams Outkast rapper Big Boi and indie outfit Phantogram together. This week, we've got another delicious song entitled "Lights On." Have a listen right here:
We're never hard-pressed for amazing collaborations, as you can see above, but covers really get our musical minds pumping each week. This time around, we get our first official taste of Ryan Adams' ambitious cover album of Taylor Swift's 1989. Listen to the rocker's take on "Bad Blood" right here!
Another one of our favorite artists is Sharon Van Etten, who definitely dominates the covers on our Mixtapes. Check out her cover of Donovan's "Teen Angel" right here!
Lady Gaga gets our attention in many ways, but her latest song, "Til It Happens To You," could be her most powerful and important tracks of her career. Addressing the rape culture that plagues the world today, Gaga opens up our minds to the horrifying facts of sexual assault. Watch this new music video right here.
Set as a soundtrack for the Rag & Bones New York Fashion Week runway show, "Villain" is more than just background music, especially since it's the newest song from Radiohead singer Thom Yorke. This was one of the coolest ways to debut a song in 2015, so we're more excited for newer music from the iconic performer. Have a listen right here!
Natasha Khan of Bat for Lashes is going by Sexwitch these days, which is her collaboration with English indie-psych outfit TOY and producer Dan Carey. Though this is simply a 2015 project, the songs coming out of it are incredible and could spark an entire career for all involved. Listen to Sexwitch's "Ha Howa Ha Howa" right here:
Lana Del Rey keeps releasing some of the coolest songs of the year, leading up to last week's premiere of her latest album, Honeymoon. Right before the album's release, she debuted her latest track, "Salvatore." Listen to this new song right here!
We're closing out this week's Mixtape with the newest song from indie-rockers DIIV because it is getting us excited for the band's first new album since 2012. Listen to "Dopamine" right here:
