Happy New Music Friday August 31, 2018!

 

 

On Fridays, music lovers are bombarded with new songs and videos. Instead of posting about each item individually (lezzbehonest no one will care to click), we figured a roundup would be best. Here’s this week’s New Music Friday highlights:

 

Troye Sivan – Bloom album

Troye just released his v v chill sophomore album, Bloom. The trancey, melancholic project drifts through lyrical highs and lows – painting a picture of what life’s like as a 20-something gay man (romantic, lonely). Nearly half of the record was released before the album debuted, but there are a handful of gems worth listening to immediately, including the opening track, “Seventeen,” and “Plum.” On Bloom, Troye’s all grown up but still figuring things out. We love a relatable king.

 

 

 

 

LSD – “Thunderclouds” video

In case you’ve been living under a very large rock, Labrinth, Sia and Diplo created their own super group named LSD. They put forth a visual for their new song “Thunderclouds,” and it’s quite a spectacle. In it, Labrinth and Diplo drive their car through an ominous thunderstorm in the sky. Per usual, Maddie Ziegler fills in for Sia. Kayoooot.

 

 

Kanye West – “XTCY”

Get it? Like, ecstasy? Sigh. Kanye’s now-officially released Ye leftover is about him fantasizing having sex with Kim Kardashian’s sisters. So, that’s all I have to say about that.

 



 

 

 

Mark Ronson x Michael Jackson – “Diamonds Are Invincible” Remix

To celebrate the King of Pop’s 60th birthday earlier this week, the Jackson estate tapped the super producer for a five-minute mega-mix of some of Jackson’s most iconic hits, from “Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough” and “Wanna Be Starting Something” to “Billie Jean,” “Smooth Criminal,” “Human Nature,” “You Rock My World” and “The Way You Make Me Feel.” If this doesn’t put a pep in your step this weekend, you’re a monster.

 

 

MNEK – “Correct” video

MNEK lives his best life in the “Correct” video. When the singer isn’t serving choreography, he’s getting a manicure and sitting on a throne. “Stay fabulous,” he purrs with a wink. MNEK is now my spirit animal.
