If you’re looking for a perfect way to wind down at the end of a long week, it’s time to grab your headphones and dive into the world of brand-new sounds. Our weekly list of the best songs is here, and it includes new tracks by The Last Dinner Party, Billy Joel, Usher, and more.

It’s been a pretty slow week for new album releases, but The Last Dinner Party still managed to rock our world with their debut album Prelude to Ecstasy. The British indie girl band has given us a pretty impressive collection of twelve amazing songs, including the defiant “The Feminine Urge”.

This week also marked the release of Billy Joel’s comeback single “Turn the Lights Back On”. This romantic ballad marks his first song in two decades, and it was definitely worth the wait!

Our list is also a true treat for fans of hip-hop, with several leading artists making the cut this week. Don Toliver impressed us with “Bandit”, 24kGoldn rocked our world with “Clarity”, while DaBaby joined forces with That Mexican OT for “Point Em Out”.

We also picked out several more amazing collaborations worth putting on your playlist, including “Ruin” by Usher and Pheelz, “Happier” by The Blessed Madonna and Clementine Douglas, and “Cigarettes & Wine” by Del Water Gap and Holly Humberstone.
