It’s New Music Friday, Super Bowl weekend edition, and fans are getting a slew of new songs to enjoy as game day approaches, including a whole new album from the 2024 Super Bowl Halftime Show headliner Usher.
The R&B star shared his ninth studio record Coming Home Friday (Feb. 9), just two days before he’s set to take the stage at Las Vegas’ Allegiant Stadium between the second and third quarters of the Kansas City Chiefs vs. San Francisco 49ers showdown. The 20-track effort features a star-studded list of collaborators, including Burna Boy, Summer Walker and 21 Savage, H.E.R. and BTS’ Jung Kook.
Both Noah Kahan and Kacey Musgraves are spinning new tunes this week, too. While the former artist’s “Forever” celebrates the closing out of his breakthrough Stick Season era, the latter star’s “Deeper Well” signifies the start of something new. On the same day she released the single, Musgraves announced that her album of the same name will arrive March 15.
Maggie Rogers is also back and better than ever with her first solo release since her sophomore album Surrender. One year after teaming up with Zach Bryan for their hit “Dawns,” the 29-year-old singer-songwriter has returned with her new single “Don’t Forget Me.”
Plus, Gwen Stefani and Blake Shelton have released their latest husband-and-wife duet. “Purple Irises” follows the couple’s previous collaborations on 2019’s “Nobody But You,” 2021’s “Happy Anywhere,” 2023’s “Love Is Alive” and more.
