This week’s new music

Alternative, electronic-laced band Chvrches have finally dropped a new album and it’s great. It includes an appearance by The National singer on “My Enemy,” if you need another reason to add the album to your library. Basically, don’t hesitate, just give it a listen.

Maggie Rogers impressed Pharrell with her song “Alaska” a few years back, but she now has a new indie-pop song called “Falling Water”. Pusha T has a new album, Daytona, which people are fawning over.

Don’t forget about hit makers from the early 2000s are back this week, led by Snow Patrol with a new album and Weezer with a new song. Sure, these two bands aren’t in the same league as one another, but it’s something new for radio DJs to burn into your ears.

Other new music from: A$SP Rocky, Shawn Mendes, and Jessie J.

New movies in theaters starting today

The big movie this week is Solo: A Star Wars Story. A spin off from the traditional Star Wars movies, Solo centers around Han Solo before we knew him as Luke’s pal. No Spoilers, but it’s pretty good. Not as good as Rogue One, but still intriguing.
