As music listening habits become more specialized, it's easier than ever to miss a new song. Unless it gets put in constant rotation on the radio, earns a coveted spot on your favorite playlist , or pops up on the soundtrack to that hot new TV show, most tracks -- even from big artists -- fly under the radar for the casual music fan. Thankfully, we've got you covered. Below, you'll find five new songs of the moment that are worth taking time out of your busy day for. It doesn't matter what genre the song comes from or how popular the artist is. If it's good, we want you to hear it -- and then listen again. Lil Baby is not backing down.

Each week, Vulture highlights the best new music. Listen to them all.

The Passion Of
Clubs are closed. So are bars and arenas and coffee shops and theaters. But while live music has come to a terrifying halt , artists have been anything but silent during the coronavirus crisis. Musicians are currently bringing their art directly to their fans through live streams, surprise releases, and digital concerts. And we need it now, perhaps more than we have in a long time, for comfort and escape, and to make sense of the world around us. Acts like Waxahatchee and Fiona Apple have released albums that are—in hindsight—prescient snapshots of our current time, whether they offer beacons of hope or solitary musings on individuality and the human spirit. Others, like Jamie xx, have gifted surprise releases as a welcome distraction from the world around us; tracks that are primed for quarantine dance parties and nightly releases of pent up energy. Follow along as we update this list and our own Spotify playlist throughout the rest of the year. Apply liberally to the affected area.
