Happy New Music Friday! The weekend is here, which means more streaming, new playlists and the best that music has to offer. ET has you covered for everything in between.
Taylor Swift released four previously unreleased songs this week, a celebration of the Eras Tour kickoff in Glendale, Arizona, on Friday night. To commemorate Taylor’s first performance, Glendale even announced a temporary name change, calling itself “Swift City” for the duration of the weekend.
Fictional bands also stepped into their limelight this week. Childish Gambino, a.k.a. Donald Glover, released his first new music since 2020 as a featured artist on “Sticky,” a song from fictional artist Ni’jah in Glover’s new Prime Video series, Swarm. The five-song Swarm EP was written by songwriter KIRBY, who is also a featured voice alongside Gambino on “Sticky.”
Marcus Mumford and Maren Morris released a cover of “Look at Us Now (Honeycomb)” from the titular fictional band of Prime Video’s Daisy Jones & The Six. Mumford co-wrote the song for the show with producer Blake Mills, and now offers his own take on the beloved new hit with Morris’ vocals at his side.
