How perfect is it that we get new music with the start of the weekend? We’ve got a few new releases from this week for you below—give ‘em a listen!

After teasing new music all week, Lorde released her new single “Green Light,” a departure from her darker synth-pop sound. She recently shared that she wrote the track with David Bowie in mind, asking herself, "What would David think of this?"

While the lyrics aren’t necessarily super happy, the bubbly, upbeat sound gives this track a fun vibe, and as Lorde tweeted, “it’ll make you DANCE.”

Also, this:

Earlier this week, Wavves released two new tracks, “Daisy” and “You’re welcome.” You can catch the former below, and you can catch the forthcoming album, You’re Welcome, when it drops on May 19.

Fresh stuff from psychedelic rockers Temples arrived today with the release of their sophomore album, Volcano. The sound is similar to their first album with its ‘60s vibe, only the instrumentals feel cleaner. Give “Strange Or Be Forgotten,” a track off Volcano, a listen below.

Also out today is Minus the Bear’s Voids. Let us know which of these is more your jam!
