New Music Fridays, October 20th, 2017 - New Music This Week


Hello and welcome once again to John's Music World's New Music Fridays.  There's lots of great new music to check out this week, so let's get right down to business...

Gorgeous - Taylor Swift

Okay, so Taylor Swift has been trickling out new songs in anticipation of her newest album, Reputation, and this, the third such track is a light-hearted, catchy pop tune that's sure to keep her fans happy until the album's November 10th release.  Check out Gorgeous...


Kids in Love - Kygo & The Night Game

Norwegian deejay/producer Kygo's newest record is already being compared to U2, Bruce Springsteen and Arcade Fire, and I'm going to add a little of The Who's Baba O'Riley into the mix.  This one is a nice power ballad with a lot of energy and well worth a listen.  Check out the hella cool Kids In Love...


Bedroom Floor - Liam Payne

The One Direction solo projects come out strong this week with a new album by Niall Horan and this new single by Liam Payne.  Bedroom Floor is the closest thing to a One Direction song that I've heard so far, only with more of an adult theme.  That being said, the tune is catchy and sure to be favorited by many fans of the One Direction phenomenon.  Check out Bedroom Floor... 


Anywhere - Rita Ora

Rita Ora is a name you're sure to be hearing more of as time goes on.  I first discovered her on the wonderfully melodic Your Song and then again on Avicii's Lonely Together.  Ora released a preview, Anywhere, from her debut album yesterday, accompanied by a fun video set in New York City.  The song is nice, catchy and very easy on the ears.  Check out Anywhere...  


Seeing Blind - Niall Horan, with Maren Morris

Horan's recently released debut solo album, Flicker, also comes with an accompanying single.  The beautiful ballad is a duet with country singer Maren Morris and you can check out the sweet Seeing Blind on iTunes or Spotify. 

Back in Your Head - Tegan and Sara, Ryan Adams

From a new tribute album of the tenth anniversary of Tegan and Sara's monumental Cons album comes a hard rocking Ryan Adams cover that's too good to be missed.  Check out Back In Your Head...   


Good Advice - Fever High, Jeff Goldblum

My pick for funkiest tune of the week comes from a Brooklyn-based duo who call themselves Fever High.  These gals have come up with a retro-sounding electro-pop single that'll be sure to have you bopping your head to the beat.  Their voices blend perfectly together as they work their way through this jam, and actor Jeff Goldblum delivers a strange, but kinda cool monologue somewhere in there.  Check out Good Advice on Soundcloud.

Though these new music tracks did not make my top choices for the week, please take note of these very worthy honorable mentions...

Meaning of Life - Kelly Clarkson
High Rollin' - Jaira Burns
Home - Nick Jonas

Song of the Day - Big Jet Plane - Alok & Mathieu Koss

Big Jet Plane was originally a song by Australian singer/songwriter Angus Stone, and it was released way back in 2010.  At the time it was a huge smash in Australia and remixes of the melancholy tune brought it to newer audiences across Europe in the immediate years thereafter.  The Aussie classic has been remixed once again by the duo of Alok and Mathieu Kloss and I am loving it's chill and dancey vibes.  Check out Big Jet Plane...

I watched a really funny video the other day.  The video was posted by Madonnarama on Facebook and it was titled Kids React to Madonna, and is hysterical if you can imagine.  One of the videos these pre-teens were showed was the classic Music.  So, here's Music...

Song of the Day - Hillside Boys - Kim Petras

Here's another song from that awesome week of New Music Fridays.  It's by German upstart Kim Petras and the tune has got pop bubble gum written all over it.  That being said, it kind of reminds me of Marina and the Diamonds.  Check out the fun Hillside Boys...

New Music Fridays, October 13th, 2017 - Three New Hot Tracks


I apologize for the late posting of this week's best new music, but my pc and I haven't had too much time together these past couple of days.  Though I did manage to bookmark several new tunes, there are only three new tracks that I thought were noteworthy, so take a look and a listen...

Just Like You - Louis Tomlinson

Former One Directioner Louis Tomlinson is back with another single, this one a bit of a surprise, and it's a nice follow-up to his first solo single, Back to You.   Just Like You is a sweet, mid-tempo ballad that's said to be influenced by Arctic Monkeys.  Check it out...

Personal - The Vamps, feat. Maggie Lindenmann

British pop rockers The Vamps are back with a brand new single featuring singer Maggie Lindenmann and it's got a really nice sound.  I tell you, if you don't know this band then you should definitely check them out.  They're slowly, but steadily building up a nice array of music in their catalog that's definitely got universal appeal.  Unfortunately there's no video yet for the tune, nor audio track, so you should hop right on over to Spotify and check it out.

House Party - The Knocks & Captain Cuts

Okay, so other than the two previously mentioned tunes by more popular artists, here's one from a duo I haven't heard much from before.  The Knocks have teamed up with production team Captain Cuts for this funky, jammy House Party.  Oh, the funky beats!  The head thumping vocals!  Love this one...
