Healing Is a Miracle
The year might not have started on the strongest note, but at least the music has. With almost the first half of the year down, we already have the likes of Lady Gaga and Bad Bunny making us dance during happy moments and Soccer Mommy and Phoebe Bridgers holding us during melancholy ones. No matter how you're feeling during this confusing time, there just might be a new record out there to match your mood. But continue to watch this space for new additions throughout the year. And missed our top songs of ? Check out that list here. Buy Song. One of the few positive moments that has come out of weeks of sheltering in place is that we have a new album by The Strokes to soundtrack our way into the summer. While the last few efforts from the quintessential New York band have showcased the obviously strained relationships between the bandmates, their latest effort almost eerily titled The New Abnormal finally sounds like the boys are at least halfway excited to be together again.

As music listening habits become more specialized, it's easier than ever to miss a new song. Unless it gets put in constant rotation on the radio, earns a coveted spot on your favorite playlist , or pops up on the soundtrack to that hot new TV show, most tracks -- even from big artists -- fly under the radar for the casual music fan. Thankfully, we've got you covered. Below, you'll find five new songs of the moment that are worth taking time out of your busy day for. It doesn't matter what genre the song comes from or how popular the artist is. If it's good, we want you to hear it -- and then listen again. Lil Baby is not backing down. After taking to the streets with Atlanta city councilman Antonio Brown to protest the police killings of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor, the year-old rap sensation has released a mournful track that channels his pain, frustration, and anger into a song that attempts to capture the emotional complexity of the moment.
Each week, Vulture highlights the best new music. Listen to them all. As the days grow dark and short and long drawn-out baths are the reward for a year of toil, the warmth of an acoustic paean to a dream of everlasting togetherness can fill a cold space with hope and the desire to recuperate for another trip around the sun. Melancholy, as a concept, is incredibly pervasive in the music we listen to. Dan Snaith, as Caribou, has perfected a sad-on-the-dance-floor strain that manages to celebrate love even as it laments the more painful aspects of it. Laying alone in your mistake.
