New Music Friday is when we talk about the new alternative music releases. Whether it's albums, singles, or remastered albums, we cover it all. Let's waste no time and get right to the music released today, Friday, October 23.
It's not necessarily a new album, but it also is. The Beastie Boys released their greatest hits album titled Beastie Boys Music. The greatest hits album has 20 tracks from albums like Check Your Head and Licensed to Ill.
FINNEAS, a.k.a Billie Eilish's brother, released a new single today. The Morning Grind actually had a chance to virtually interview FINNEAS this year. The new song is titled Can't Wait to be Dead. According to Pitchfork, FINNEAS said, "...it’s a song about my relationship with the internet." Listen below.
I've always been a fan of Gorillaz so I was extra excited for their new album. Gorillaz dropped the album Song Machine, Season One: Strange Timez today. The Independent calls it the "finest Gorillaz album in a decade". There's plenty of guests on the new album like Beck, Schoolboy Q, Snoop Dog, and Elton John. Listen to the song featuring Beck below:
