“Lifetime” – SG Lewis
Release date – November 3

Who doesn’t love a feel good song that you can immediately imagine playing at the end of a rom com or during a montage of a wedding on the big screen? That’s exactly what I picture when I hear SG Lewis’ new song “Lifetime,” a song that has such immaculate happy, chill, and positive vibes about finding the one you want to love for the rest of your life, it almost makes me want to stop being incredibly jaded (almost).

In a statement about the song, Lewis said it could be his favourite record he’s ever made.

“I wrote it with my friends Ed Drewett, Reuben James and J Moon late one night at Decoy Studios, and the song is largely about Ed and his wife. It’s a song that channels inspiration from a lot of the music I grew up listening to, and holds a very special place in my heart.”

“If I Died Last Night” – Jessie Murph
Release date – November 4

I am pretty sure I’ve used this anecdote before, but there’s always something about finally getting around to listen listening to an artist whose name you’ve seen all over the place and realizing how great said artist is. This is exactly what I did with Jessie Murph’s new song “If I Died Last Night,” the artist’s most recently single, following up a slew of singles that have over 100 million streams combined.

Combining a mixture of Noah Cyrus and Elle King with an extra dash of something along the lines of a country twang, Murph imagines what would happen if she died the night before and how it would affect the people in her life. Though it’s certainly a heavy topic, the fast-paced tempo and what seems to be a banjo playing in the chorus keeps it uncomfortably fast. I’d assume that’s the point.

“Today” – Q
Release date – November 4

While I’d like to make the argument that the reason I haven’t heard of Q (Q Marsden)’s music before this past weekend is because his moniker does not perform well via SEO, it’s probably just because it’s impossible to listen to every single artist who makes music ever. And because I don’t particularly listen to R&B music. But after hearing Q’s new song “Today,” I’m going to for sure stay up-to-date with whatever he releases next.

If I could describe Q’s new song “Today” in just one sentence, I’d say it sounds like the combination of like The Weeknd, Childish Gambino, and Blood Orange at the Same time. So I guess he’s in good company. Do you really need any more convincing to take a listen?
