The Friday Five: New Music Roundup 10/15/21
Its hot in Los Angeles again and the new music this week is even hotter – lets get to it:
“Forever” by Chelsea Cutler
Fresh off the Stay Next To Me tour with frequent collaborator Quinn XCII and fellow Mutual Friends management artist, Republic Records artist Chelsea Cutler has released her sophomore album, When I Close My Eyes. Having earned a reputation for making sadder music, Cutler showcases a different side of happiness, love and self-love on the album. One of those tracks, “Forever” finds the singer/songwriter/producer/musician finding out that “forever never sounded good until” she met ya.
“Wouldn’t Change A Thing (f. Thirty Seconds To Mars)” by ILLENIUM
Ahead of the deluxe version of his album Fallen Embers, DJ and producer ILLENIUM has shared “Wouldn’t Change A Thing” featuring Thirty Seconds To Mars. Having premiered the new song just last month at Las Vegas’ Life Is Beautiful music festival, fans can know enjoy the full studio version. The song features ILLENIUM’s signature elevating production with a glistening progressive house drop that gives way to Jared Leto’s vocals as he finds comfortability in the past of an ended love. Fallen Embers [Deluxe] arrives next Friday, October 22nd.
“Before The Sun Rises” by Smallpools
Alternative band Smallpools releases latest album LIFE IN A SIMULATION today which marks their first album since the debut LOVETAP! came out in 2015. Having announced the album back in May, fans can now enjoy the latest release from the group including the catchy “Before The Sun Rises.” Sounding like mix between Porter Robinson and Owl City, “Before The Sun Rises” is fun and cheery indie-pop song as they play “place bets on who will fall asleep before the sun rises.”
“Any Day Now” by Trousdale
Country trio Trousdale released their follow up to September’s “What Could I Say” with latest song, “Any Day Now.” Backed by a driving drum as the girls three harmonies melt together seamlessly, they optimistically sing, “what could I say to you / To make it OK again / What could I say to you.” In a social media post, the girls say they “put [their] hearts into this one and hope you dance to it as much as [they] do :).”

“Livin It Up (f. Post Malone & A$SAP Rocky)” by Young Thug
Atlantic Records artist Young Thug shares new album Punk – a 20-track LP that features collaborations with JUCIE WRLD, Drake and Doja Cat (to name a few). Additionally, Post Malone and A$AP Rocky appear on the laid back “Livin It Up.” With a tropical-like vibe supported with relaxed guitar strings and subtle harp, the song looks to keep summer alive as we continue to move closer to winter and as we “go dumb dumb dumb.”
