Happy New Music Friday! Your favorite artists, from Billie Eilish to Flo Milli, are coming in hot with a stack of best new songs and exciting releases. We’re definitely feeling the heat this week, and we’re not just talking about this record-breaking heatwave. This NMF, Billie drops a long-awaited song duo, Flo Milli releases her debut studio album, Fletcher stirs up the Internet with a new single, Beach Bunny delivers their sophomore album, and Megan Thee Stallion and Future link up for a surprise collaboration.
Billie Eilish’s song duo, titled Guitar Songs, features two new tracks titled “The 30th” and “TV.” Billie first previewed “TV” back in June, during a live show in Manchester. “We haven’t played a new song live before it’s out since 2017 or 2018,” Billie told the crowd at the time, alongside her brother and longtime collaborator Finneas. “This is one we just wrote, and we just wanted to play for you.” Now officially out, “TV” is a dreamy and melancholy ballad that also addresses real-world issues.
Below, check out “TV” and other brand new releases from this week in our roundup of best new songs and projects.
Billie Eilish, Guitar Songs
“The internet’s gone wild watching movie stars on trial / While they’re overturning Roe v. Wade,” sings Billie on “TV.” In an interview with Apple Music, Billie shared that she and Finneas had actually written the line referencing the Supreme Court’s decision to end the constitutional right to abortion in the United States before the actual decision came to pass, calling the line “a placeholder of doom.”
The other song in the duo, “The 30th,” was written by the siblings on December 30 — a record Billie says was the first song they wrote post-Happier Than Ever. Billie told Apple Music’s Zane Lowe that she’s working towards releasing her next album in 2023, and that Guitar Songs is somewhat of a gift, as they’re the “only songs that we have.”
