Welcome to New Tunes Tues, where we tell you what newly released songs/albums/music videos etc require your attention immediately. This week we’ve got an emotional new Justin Bieber song, a smash hit from Ariana Grande, and a new Coldplay tune featuring little Apple Martin on vocals! It’s all below:
Coldplay, “Always in My Head.” The band performed this new song off their upcoming album, Ghost Stories, at SXSW, but just released the studio version yesterday on a British radio station. And this one’s extra special because Chris Martin revealed that the track features guest vocals from his daughter, Apple!:
Justin Bieber ft. Poo Bear, “Hard 2 Face Reality.” Kinda like Beyonce did back in December, the Biebs released a surprise new song (with new rapper who unfortunately calls himself Poo Bear) about the hardships of long distance relationships. Could this tune be an homage to on-again-off-again GF Selena Gomez? Still unclear, but take a listen regardless to see if you can decipher the song’s hidden meaning:
Ariana Grande ft. Iggy Azalea, “Problem.” Ariana debuted her new single during a performance at Sunday’s Radio Disney music Awards, and just like that it’s number one on iTunes! Iggy Azalea drops a rap verse on the track, too, so calling it now—this is the summer anthem of 2014.
Cher Lloyd, “Sirens.” Cher takes a much darker turn than she did on “I Want U Back” with her new song and its accompanying music video, which tells the tale of a girl who’s dealing with her drug-addicted boyfriend. Watch the emotional video right here:
MKTO, “American Dream.” MKTO released their debut album less than a month ago, but they somehow still had time to pick a new single and film a music video in the midst of everything else that’s happening for Malcolm and Tony. The result is the super inspiring vid for “American Dream” which, BTW, we give you permission to watch over and over without judgment. It’s that good:
