Friday Playlist is where we do the hard work for you, and put everything we like in one place week. Scroll for a Spotify playlist of everything mentioned here!
1. “Remember I Told You” — Nick Jonas ft. Anne-Marie and Mike Posner
Anne-Marie and Nick serve up one of the best duets of the year. But really, does this one even need an introduction? It’s Nick Jonas. Just listen to it.
2. “Your Song” — Rita Ora
Rita Ora is back, and this post-hiatus song is sugary sweet.
3. “I Miss Those Days” — Bleachers
The songs that Bleachers have been slowly releasing from their upcoming album Gone Now have been hit or miss for me. This one is a definite hit.
4. “Dive” — Coast Modern
LA duo Coast Modern has delivered another certified summer jam. Fans of Beck, No Doubt and Weezer will take to Coleman Trapp and Luke Atlas‘ new track in an instant.
5. “Find Yourself” — Great Good Fine Ok
This collaboration with Before You Exit is total fire!
6. “Mourning Sound” — Grizzly Bear
I haven’t been thrilled by Grizzly Bear’s other recent releases, but this one caught my ear thanks to that hypnotic bassline.
7. “Broken Vow” — The Kooks
This is one of two new songs that The Kooks gave us along with their compilation album The Best Of… So Far, and it’s the better one. That acoustic guitar.
8. “Only Human” — MisterWives
There’s lots of good stuff on Connect the Dots, MisterWives’ second record. If you’re sick of the lead single “Machine” already, this is the one for you.
9. “Strip That Down” — Liam Payne and Quavo
Petty One Direction diss aside, this track is an absolute bop.
