There’s a few Fridays every year where it feels like a ton of amazing albums/EPs come out. Earlier this summer, we had an awesome day in June 5th (Currents, END, Emery, etc.) and today we have a wild amount of new releases – almost too many to track. Here’s some of our highlights:
JUST DROPPED! A fire new collab between Gesaffelstein and The Weeknd titlted “Lost in Fire” off Gestaffastein’s upcoming sophomore album Hyperion. The two previously worked together on The Weeknd’s last EP in March 2018, My Dear Melancholy, for the songs “I Was Never There” and “Hurt You”.
Previously released was an 11-second teaser video with Tesfaye and Gesaffelstein facing back to back with a snap of the beginning audio to the song presented, giving fans just a taste of the fire this song really is. At least, we think so. You can listen to the song on Apple Music, Spotify, and other streaming services. You can view the music video below:
Recently the post-hardcore band Too Close To Touch has released yet another single titled “Burn.” Following their previous single, “Before I Cave In” that was released in late November, we are pretty sure you’re going to like this single just as much as the others.
With a melodic instrumental piece that carries vocalist Keaton Pierce’s emotion-filled vocals, you will find yourself wanting to head-bang and scream the lyrics but also cry at the same time. My favorite lyrics from the song personally are “Deep in the cracks you left in me, I bury a belief that keeps me sane. More than a phase I’m done pretending, why try to hide this fragile state?”
