  • If you caught the most recent episode of HBO's Girls, you may have heard the previously unreleased track from St. Vincent. If not, stream the song below. The track is said to be a demo left over from last year's self-titled fourth studio album. Girls music supervisor Manish Raval told Billboard: “I said to St. Vincent’s people, ‘We love Annie and she and Lena are friends. Is there anything laying around?’ They sent us a demo of a song called ‘Teenage Talk’ that she hadn’t released yet and it was amazing. Lena flipped for it.” [Consequence of Sound]

  • Even more new music: over the weekend, M.I.A. shared the track "CanSeeCanDo," her first new material since her 2013 release Matangi.

Arulpragasam then took to Twitter to declare, "to my hardcore fans hang in there summer is coming." Listen below: [Under the Radar]
