Yeah, 2014 is still going for another week, but I have five tracks that have all been released within the past few weeks that have me looking forward to 2015. They are all great songs, but I can’t really include them in my 2014 list even though they’ve been dropped this year. I chalk it up to the fact that, except for D’angelo’s shocking surprise this week, all of the full lengths comes out next year (yeah yeah, the Panda Bear doesn’t come out until 2015 either, but the Mr. Noah EP came out this year, so there).
D’Angelo and the Vanguard, “Really Love” (from Black Messiah, out now)
Modest Mouse, “Lampshades On Fire” (From Strangers To Ourselves, out 3/3/15)
Belle and Sebastian, “The Party Line” (from Girls In Peacetime Want To Dance, out 1/20/15)
Madonna, “Ghosttown” (from Rebel Heart, out 3/10/15)
Sleater-Kinney, “Surface Envy” (from No Cities To Love, out 1/20/15)
