Choosing the best new songs of the week is never an easy feat, and our favorite artists truly gave us an abundance of great tracks to choose from this time around. From Rina Sawayama and Ed Sheeran to Lana Del Rey and Depeche Mode, some of the world’s leading recording artists dropped new music for us to enjoy.

March 24 marked the release of new albums by Lena Del Rey, Fall Out Boy, Depeche Mode, BTS’s Jimin, and a new EP by Rosalía and Rauw Alejandro. It’s truly an embarrassment of riches, and some of the best songs from their new albums made it to our list.

The most buzzed-about song released this Friday was definitely Ed Sheeran’s “Eyes Closed”. One of the singer’s most personal songs to date deals with grief and loss and it serves as the lead single from his upcoming album Subtract.

Chlöe Bailey also teased her next album, with a catchy new song “Body Do”, while FLO and Missy Elliott gave us a hip-hop banger with “Body Do”. It was also a great week for alternative and rock music, with The National’s soaring new single “Eucalyptus” also making the cut.
