Four brand-new rock songs to dig into this week (3/16-3/22)

This week, the music world mourned the loss of Dick Dale, king of surf guitar and heavy metal progenitor. But rock musicians continue to keep the flag flying high. Here are four tracks you shouldn’t miss.

“Wasted Youth” by Jenny Lewis

“Wasted Youth” is taken from Jenny Lewis’ new album, On the Line, out today. A star-studded backing band, including Todd Wisenbaker and Benmont Tench, accompanies the Rilo Kiley musician on this jaunty yet wistful track.

“Los Invisibles” by Santana, Buika

Carlos Santana’s latest song, “Los Invisibles,” features the distinctive vocals of Spanish singer Buika. It’s the first glimpse of his forthcoming record Africa Speaks, which was produced by Rick Rubin and inspired by African music.

“Wake Me When it’s Over” by The Cranberries

The Cranberries’ guitarist Noel Hogan has described “Wake Me When it’s Over” as “a classic Dolores [O’Riordan] song.” This new single drops ahead of the April release of In the End, the Irish band’s final album in light of O’Riordan’s untimely death last year.

“Can’t Find My Heart” by Broken Social Scene

It seems releasing Hug of Thunder in 2017 really kicked Broken Social Scene into gear. They put out the Let’s Try the After Vol 1 EP last month, and have just released the anthemic cut, “Can’t Find My Heart,” from its follow-up, which will drop in April.
