Hi-Five: New Music From Weezer, Sam Smith + More

Weezer – Cleopatra

After the recent release of “Back to the Shack,” Weezer’s first single since their 2010 album Hurley, the band began teasing more new music with various video clips and in-studio footage. They’ve finally put out “Cleopatra,” which will be on the upcoming Everything Will be Alright in the End, out October 10th.

Ang Low – Wild Horses

Ang Low’s voice dances effortlessly over synth plucks and austere percussion in his latest release, “Wild Horses.” The track is smoother than butter, which is no surprise with Low at this point. Make sure to also check out “Win Back Your Love” and “Voodoo Woman” to get acquainted with this one to watch.

Gossling – Harvest of Gold

With her own clothing line, makeup, and position as an official UNIQLO Ambassador, Australian singer Gossling (Helen Croome) has a lot more than just music going on. That being said, her daunting and melodious “Harvest of Gold” perfectly merges pop with folksy instrumentation, revealing an original sound topped by a haunting yet potent voice.

Sam Smith – I’m Not the Only One (Feat A$AP Rocky)

Heartache hasn’t sounded this good in years. Two of the best breakout artists as of late have created a surprising and beautiful synergy on “I’m Not The Only One,” fashioning a rework that might bring a whole new audience to Smith’s already massive US fan base.

“This Simple Pleasure – Billie Black and Mura Masa

Nineteen-year-old chanteuse Billie Black, whose voice seems to transcend genre and time, collaborated with Mura Masa to create “The Simple Pleasure,” a track full of percussive experimentation, jazz house synths, and Black’s floating, seductive vocals.
