Perhaps not satisfied with the Sasha Lane–starring Spotify visual for “Call Out My Name,” the Weeknd has released new music video for the My Dear Melancholy track. The vibe is still quite … melancholic: Abel Tesfaye walks alone down deserted streets or on deserted stages or in the deserted wilderness. Eventually, a creature with a woman’s body and a hawk’s beak delivers us through an Annihilation-style shimmer. It’s nothing particularly spectacular, but a fitting visual for Melancholy’s saddest breakup song. A highlight: the bats that, rather inexplicably, fly out of the Weeknd’s mouth

What do you do when you’re DJ Snake and every single you drop is straight fire? Might as well become a firefighter and roam the streets, keeping people safe.
The French producer, who will be headlining Billboard’s Hot 100 Fest this summer, poses as such a public servant in the music video for “Magenta Riddim.” Its melody features heavy Indian inspiration, so the clip takes place in India too. It’s colorful and funky, just like the single, and it’ll have you smiling and dancing before you know it. Viewer beware: There is a spicy twist at the end of this tale. Can you handle the truth?

Diplo‘s debuted an official video for the Flume-reminiscent “Color Blind” track featuring Lil Xan off the Mad Decent producer’s new California EP.
The video was directed by longtime collaborator Austin Peters, who also helmed Major Lazer’s feature documentary Give Me Future, as well as the video for “Miss You.”
California, the first solo body of work from Diplo in five years, is named for the state where he recorded the EP, serving as a full circle moment for the artist whose debut album was named Florida, in honor of the state in which he grew up. Dancing Astronaut

Bibliothèque Records head honcho Sebjak has teamed up with the prolific Matt Nash to deliver the invigorating tune “I Need A Friend” on Spinnin’ Deep.
“I Need A Friend” reflects the signature styles of both producers, as it’s characterized by heavy, deep brasses, progressive melodies, and a hypnotic vocal. Melodic clings intertwine with sinister synths and wavy vocals, which result in an authentic record. Deep yet powerful, this track is both a perfect club weapon and Spotify tool.
The two producers have already collaborated in the past on “Fire Higher“, released on Ultra Music back in 2015. Sebjak and Matt Nash must be considered the “fathers” of the current techy/progressive style which has been growing so fast in the last year: the UK producer, with “Know My Love“, has introduced heavy techno brasses in the mainstream EDM, while Sebjak created a label focused on this sound, his own Bibliothèque Records.

Marian Hill are one of those sneaky popular projects; you may not immediately recognize the name, but chances are you’ve heard their breakout 2016 hit “Down” at some point along the way between then and now, and you look at their tour itinerary and realize they’re playing, and filling, some decent-sizedvenues across the country.
Today (April 5), the Philadelphia-based electronic R&B duo are back with a sleek new joint called “Differently”, and it continues their hot streak of penning ultra-chill alternative pop jams. Watch the Zach Bell-directed video below.
“‘Differently’ is about empowering a friend and helping them see how dope they are,” the duo states. “Our creative director, Zach Bell, had the idea of an escalating tableau of women to convey this feeling. We write songs to give our fans strength and they empower us in return, so once we had the idea to feature our fans in the video, the whole vision clicked into place. We put out an open call for video submissions on social media, and these women all slayed their auditions. The shoot was a blast, and they were a dream to work with—we left so proud of this piece we made together, a little minimalist story about women being stronger together.”
This new single will be featured on Marian Hill’s upcoming sophomore album, Unusual, which hits May 11. This article originally appeared in Vanyaland.

Kimbra’s new release — “Like They Do On The TV” — was written in a time machine. Not so much in the future, not so much from the past. Just sort of everywhere all at once. It’s been a while since we got a new album from Kimbra even though her first single for her new album — Primal Heart — was released way back in September of 2017. In fact “Like They Do On The TV” is actually the fifth single in advance of the album which was pushed back until April 20, 2018. This article originally appeared in Uproxx
