Green Day's return is the big rock news of the moment, but our latest Rolling Stone playlist takes you deeper, from Radiohead's appropriately Trump-timed live revival of "The National Anthem" to Miranda Lambert's ode to the (newly) single life. You'll also hear the moody latest from Warpaint, a standout track from Chicago R&B up-and-comer Noname and a surprisingly unironic love song from Father John Misty. Scroll through to hear the rest of our picks.
Indie-folk hero Father John Misty usually undercuts his sensitive-Seventies tunefulness with dark irony. Not this time. The achingly lovely "Real Love Baby" might be his prettiest song, and it's definitely his sweetest.
Green Day's first studio album in four long years is out in October, and its first single is a harrowing punk rager, sung from the perspective of a mass shooter drunk on twisted fame. They've never channeled American angst so terrifyingly.
Chicago rapper-poet and Chance the Rapper pal Noname kicks some lithe, fluttery R&B with a summer-stoop vibe. It's like vintage Erykah Badu at her most optimistically chill.
A Kid A classic thrown down on the first night of their U.S. tour. As the crowd sang, "Everyone has got the fear," the Trump-era dread felt explosive.
Confessional rapper Miller serenades his own amazing skill at getting dumped by women on a bright dance jam with L.A. soul visionary Paak that turns relationship misery into a party.
The moody L.A. rockers have a new album influenced by Outkast and Björk; the dubby grooves and sinewy guitars here evoke a predatory glide through the Southern California night.
The country queen drops her first song since divorcing Blake Shelton, and it's a smoldering heartbreak burner full of bleary synths and dark guitar churn. She hasn't exactly been sitting around reading Blake's old letters: "7 a.m. with shoes in my hand," she sings, making the walk of shame feel like an act of steel-belted resilience.
