BTS, Billie Eilish, and More Best New Music

This week’s best new music includes new songs from BTS, Billie Eilish, Bathe, and more.

BTS, “Permission to Dance”

Global powerhouse BTS is back with their latest irresistible bop, the Ed Sheeran-penned “Permission to Dance.” An ode to an eventual post-pandemic euphoria, the song has an anthemic chorus and uplifting, playful choreo (that also incorporates ASL) — plus, the music video weaves together heartwarming scenes of people dancing and enjoying life again. ARMYs can count on BTS for an instant serotonin boost, as per usual.

Billie Eilish, “NDA”

A sparse, chiming production guides Billie Eilish’s latest single “NDA,” and that’s just the first unique sound element to come into play in the inventive track. It’s a woozier take on hyperpop, complete with Billie’s signature emotive vocals. For the chorus, Billie leans into electro Auto Tune as she sings about a toxic relationship in the context of her massive fame and inability to leave the house without being followed. The music video is chaotic and compelling, with cars dodging Billie in the street left and right.\

Snoh Aalegra feat. Tyler, the Creator, “NEON PEACH”

A delightful match, Snoh Aalegra and Tyler, the Creator join forces on a genre-bending dance-pop R&B track in “NEON PEACH.” The song is a vibe even as they explore difficult subject matter: “Put the past behind you/You’re livin’ in a lie too/The present time has had enough.”\

Bathe, “Sundress”

We love a chill summer anthem, and Brooklyn duo Bathe has delivered. “Sundress” is a dreamy homage to hot summer days and memories on the beach with friends, with a filmic music video you want to live inside. The song is about feeling “close with someone who’s far away,” Corey from Bathe said in a press statement. “Whether you’re separated by distance, time or even reality itself.” Intimate and lovely, ”Sundress” will be on repeat all summer long.
