MIXTAPE MONDAY: Check Out New Songs from Kendrick Lamar, Sia, MIA, Tame Impala & 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 2015 songs from Kendrick Lamar, Sia, MIA, Tame Impala and more right here!
Sia's upcoming album, This is Acting, brings songs that the Australian singer wrote for other pop stars back to her own voice, for one of the most anticipated records of early 2016. This week, she shared with the world her latest song, "One Million Bullets," which we previously reported on right here! You can listen to the song by following the aforementioned link.
One of the most bizarre relationships in the world is that of Chris Martin and Gwenyth Paltrow. Though currently divorced, the two spend plenty of time together in order to sustain a family life for their children, and even bring dates around each other - as tabloids would have us believe, at least. Whatever the reasoning behind this relationship, the Coldplay frontman decided his band's new song "Everglow" needed his ex-wife's touch, so now we have a nice duet featuring the former couple. Have a listen right here!
There's nothing like a new music video from Tame Impala, so we won't even hesitate to share with you the one for "The Less I Know the Better." Check it out!
Speaking of music videos, hip-hop artist MIA shared one of the most powerful shorts of the year for her latest single, "Borders." Considering the social climate surrounding this term, we'll let you make assumptions on the subject matter. Watch the video right here:
Kendrick Lamar shared two remixes this past week, both of which are sure to please fans. Released the day after Thanksgiving, the aptly titled "Black Friday" is Lamar's reworking of J. Cole's "A Tale of 2 Citiez." Check out this remix right here! He also premiered the new song "Traffic Jam," which is a remix of Jay Rock's "Easy Bake." Listen to this one right here!
Speaking of remixes, check out Jon Hopkins' remix of Disclosure and Lorde's "Magnets" right here!
While we love remixes, we also highly enjoy the genre of music that's quite similar: covers! This week, My Morning Jacket shared the powerful reworking of Eagles of Death Metal's "I Love You All the Time." By covering EoDM, the publishing rights to the song will be collected and donated to a charity set up by the band for the victims and families of the Paris shootings, according to Consequence of Sound.
Meanwhile, Robin Pecknold, lead singer of Fleet Foxes, shared a great cover of "Out of Sight, Out of Mind," originally performed by The Five Keys.
We're closing out this week's Mixtape with a new, grungy number from DIIV. Entitled "Mire (Grant's Song)," the Brooklyn-based indie musicians showed off their darker side with an alternative rocker. Listen to this new song 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!
