Here are the 5 best new songs you can stream right now:

Jack White — “Respect Commander”

Jack White’s two-sided lead single from his upcoming third solo album, “Boarding House Reach,” features one quality track in “Respect Commander,” a frenetic, prog-rock piece with a heavy, blues-influenced interlude. 

Khruangbin — “Friday Morning”

Khruangbin, a Texas-based trio, melds African and Middle Eastern influences with ’70s-style funk. The band’s latest single, “Friday Morning,” is a slow-building and serene mix of winding guitar and bass. 

Rhye — “Song For You”

Mike Milosh’s R&B project Rhye stays in its effective realm of strings-laden slow jams on “Song For You,” a four-minute single with emotive guitar work that recalls the more contemplative songs of The Velvet Underground

Jonny Greenwood — “House of Woodcock”

Newly available for streaming, Jonny Greenwood’s Golden Globe-nominated soundtrack to Paul Thomas Anderson’s movie “Phantom Thread” features 18 classical-influenced tracks from the Radiohead band member. “House of Woodcock,” its centerpiece, captures the film’s beguiling shifts in mood. 


Jay Rock — “King’s Dead” (feat. Kendrick Lamar, Future, and James Blake)

Kendrick Lamar joins his TDE labelmate Jay Rock, rapper Future, and the English singer-producer James Blake on “King’s Dead,” an emphatic single from the Kendrick-curated soundtrack to Marvel’s “Black Panther” with a dizzying, minute-long outro verse from Lamar.
