The month’s best new music, with tracks by FKA twigs, Danny Brown, Charli XCX, and more
In our round-up of September’s best new music, we’ve highlighted FKA twigs’s “Holy Terrain”, an unexpected collaboration with Future; Danny Brown’s “Best Life”, a jubilant hip hop track from the psychedelic rapper’s upcoming new album uknowhatimsayin¿; and “Warm”, Charli XCX’s open-hearted collaboration with HAIM, from the pop singer’s self-titled new opus Charli.
Not all of the artists in this month’s playlist are such established stars, though. Beneath the banner names, you’ll discover your favourite new artist: “Nauseous / Devilish”, by London producer and Frank Ocean collaborator Vegyn, is a strange piece of leftfield rap featuring JPEGMAFIA; “55 Year Old Daughter” is a piercing bit of techno-punk from Bristol’s Giant Swan; and “I’ve Never Been So Happy to Be Bleeding” is a theatrical pop song courtesy of rising LA songwriter vōx.
Although we post these round-ups at the end of every month, we update the playlist regularly for our subscribers – so be sure to follow us on Spotify and Apple Music if you can’t stand to wait for new tracks.
