  1. Welcome to the thirteenth Songs of the Week of 2020. While more album release dates were pushed back due to COVID-19 and it seems we haven’t reached the peak number of coronavirus cases in America yet, none of that stopped artists from sharing a whole lot of new songs this week. 
  2. Canadian electro-pop duo Purity Ring (Megan James and Corin Roddick) have released their first new album in five years, WOMB, today via 4AD. Now that the album is out, you can stream the whole thing below. Also below are the band’s upcoming tour dates.
  3. Here We Go Magic frontman Luke Temple has announced a new album under the name Art Feynman, Half Price at 3:30, and shared its first single, “I’m Gonna Miss Your World,” via a Caroline Sallee-directed stop-motion video for the new song. 
  4. Jenny Hval has shared a new song, “Bonus Material.” It is the Norwegian experimentalist’s first new song since last September’s full-length The Practice of Love. Hval has also announced some rescheduled tour dates, shows that were postponed due to COVID-19. 
  5. Think back, if you can, to the mid-’90s. MTV was still playing music and alternative music was as popular as it ever would be, although there were signs of its declining commercial fortunes already present.
