Fresh Finds Friday: Gorillaz returns with another tease for their upcoming album; Charlie Puth talks heartbreak on 'Smells Like Me'

As week three comes to a close, Bobcats are acclimated to a new course schedule and for some, a new campus. Amongst a time of change, it's always a nice addition to listen to some new tunes throughout the week and going into the weekend. This past week, Gorillaz, Imagine Dragons and others have dropped new music. 

While everyone has their favorite genre of music, we’ve made a playlist that will appeal to any mood or preference. Below are new songs that are perfect for walking to class, working out at the gym, sitting around in your dorm or cranking out those last-minute papers. Here are five new songs to get you through the week:

“New Gold” by Gorillaz, Tame Impala, Bootie Brown

Gorillaz, the famous English virtually animated band, returns this week with their new single “New Gold,” which will be on their forthcoming eighth studio album, “Cracker Island.” It features some other familiar faces such as Australian psych-rocker Tame Impala and Bootie Brown of the alt-hip hop group Pharcyde, according to an MSN report. However, while you can enjoy “New Gold” and the title track of the same name, you’ll have to wait for the eight remaining songs on “Cracker Island,” which releases on Feb. 24.

“Love Of Mine (Night Visions Demo)” by Imagine Dragons

Imagine Dragons, the band best known for songs such as "Radioactive" and "It's Time," have released a never-before-heard demo of their song "Love of Mine," which was on their debut album "Night Visions," which will be released in an expanded edition Sept. 9. The song itself is accompanied in conjunction with an animated video directed by Jose Lun, an "inner journey to the stars centered on trying to find oneself," according to Yahoo News. In addition, if you're into small mini-games, the band released a small game you can play to source various items on a tour bus. 

“Smells Like Me” by Charlie Puth

Charlie Puth returns with the '80s sound break-up song that mixes modern pop. He's comparing the sadness of a break-up while hoping the ex thinks about him. He sings, "I hope the memory's killin' you over there/Don't even front, you know you can't compare/I hope your jacket smells like me." This song comes up on Puth's upcoming album "Charlie," which will be his third studio album, and it drops Oct. 7.

“Beg” by Duckwrth, Clay

Recently named a "Dance Pop Star” by Forbes, Duckwrth’s music conquers anxiety with mutual functionality in its soundscapes. He has around three million monthly listeners on Spotify and released his new single "Beg," featuring Clay. The track infuses dance music with hip-hop in keeping with the description. He navigates his anxieties with the lyrics; “I cannot wait to see you/But I can't seem to find my PMA, my peace of mind/I always see the silver lining, but I cannot seem to chill.”

“Nike” by Shygirl

“Nike” will be the fourth single off of Shygirl’s upcoming LP, “Nymph,” which features an instrumental from Mura Masa and arrives in the wake of Shygirl’s June feature, “Hollaback b----.” The song pits the beat against a smooth flow describing a casual encounter: “He tells me Nike, just do it/Hands on my breast and my body like he knew it,” she raps in front of a lilac backdrop in the COLORS video that accompanies the song. Expect “Nike” and the rest of the “Nymph” project Sept. 30.
