The best and brightest of this past week in music, as well as a throwback track! Hopefully you can bump these tracks on your way to work to brighten up your Monday mornings. This week we have new music from Action Bronson and Chance the Rapper, Meg Myers, Kid Cudi and more!
Chance The Rapper and Action Bronson made a great team last time, with Chance’s Acid Rap track ‘NaNa’, and now this time Action returned the favor by recruiting Chance for his new track ‘Baby Blue’. ‘Baby Blue’ is off Action’s forthcoming Mr. Wonderful album, and is produced by Mark Ronson (‘Uptown Funk’) and co-written by BBC Radio 1’s Zane Lowe. Be sure to get Mr. Wonderful on March 24th (available for pre-order now on iTunes) and listen to ‘Baby Blue’ above.
Check out LA-based singer-songwriter Meg Myers’ new single ‘Sorry’, the first taste from her forthcoming debut LP of the same name (the follow up to her Make A Shadow EP). SORRY will be released this summer on Atlantic Records, and you can stream its first single above or download it now on iTunes.
Listen to Kid Cudi’s unreleased track from his Satellite Flight: The Journey to Mother Moon album, titled ‘love’. Although the unreleased song was recorded for Cudi’s latest album, it sounds like classic Man on the Moon Cudi. Produced by Cudi and Dod Da Genius, the track samples Ratatat’s ‘Sunblocks’ and you can stream the empowering track now.
Kanye West is notorious for continuing to perfect the mixing and mastering of his tracks, even after their official release. That’s why we weren’t surprised to learn that his new record ‘All Day’ ft. Theophilus London & Allan Kingdom (buy it now on iTunes) has been remastered. As heard on streaming service WiMP (available in select European countries, and recently bid on by Jay-Z), the new mastered version of ‘All Day’ has a few subtle but still noticeable changes. For example, the vocals echo when Kanye says “All Day, n*gga” and synths in the track also stand out more. If you live in Europe, you may be able to check out the new version here, otherwise check out the remastered version above.
Last week, we had Jay-Z’s Reasonable Doubt as our Throwback Thursday album. So it’s only right that we have his ‘Dead Presidents’ single represent (pun intended) our throwback track this week.
