Albums by: Nessa Barrett, Rita Ora, MisterWives, and Sam Haft
- Nessa Barrett - hell is a teenage girl (EP) - July 14
Nessa Barrett is gearing up to release her second EP, hell is a teenage girl, on Friday. The 20-year-old artist's EP will feature seven tracks, including the previously released songs Lie and BANG BANG!
- Rita Ora - You & I - July 14
Rita Ora's third studio album, You & I, is set to drop on Friday via BMG. The album features three previously released songs – You Only Love Me, Praising You, and Don't Think Twice. You & I, which was first announced in April, serves as Ora's first studio album in five years.
- MisterWives - Nosebleeds - July 14
MisterWives is back with the release of their new album, Nosebleeds, on Friday. Speaking to Rolling Stone, lead singer Mandy Lee referred to the album as "the perfect storm for how bands fall apart." Over the last few years, MisterWives has seen some changes.
In 2020, Lee and partner aka the band's drummer Etienne Bowler announced they were going their separate ways. The next year, MisterWives trumpeter Jesse Blum announced he was leaving the band, news that came before they were dropped by their label, Fueled By Ramen. Thus, Nosebleeds was created, and serves as the follow-up to the band's 2020 album, Superbloom.
- Sam Haft - Bad Times (EP) - July 14
Multifaceted singer Sam Haft's new EP, Bad Times, is due on Friday. The electro-indie-pop artist's latest collection covers the all-too-relatable experience of a relationship gone sour.
The EP's release will be followed by a music video for one of its post-breakup tracks, Afterburn.
Singles by: Reneé Rapp, Billie Eilish, Troye Sivan, and Chelsea Cutler
In addition to new albums, there are a handful of new singles worth checking out this week.
First is a new song from Reneé Rapp called TALK TOO MUCH, which is due on Wednesday (July 12). The track is the latest off her newly announced debut album, Snow Angel.
On Thursday, Billie Eilish's highly anticipated song from the Barbie movie, What Was I Made For? – and its accompanying music video – will be dropping on Thursday (July 13), as will Troye Sivan's newest single, Rush.
Flash forward to Friday (July 14), and Chelsea Cutler's latest track called I Don't Feel Alive will hit streaming services.
