Scroll down to stream this week's new releases from Drake, Kings of Leon, CHVRCHES, Icona Pop, and Deer Tick. If these aren't enough for your listening pleasure today, head to our Music Monday Playlist for TomorrowWorld.
Drake released Nothing Was The Same today, featuring collaborations with Jay-Z, 2 Chainz, Sampha, and Big Sean. We recommend pairing your first listen with these tweets and this article about Drake's appearance at NYU Sunday night. Catch the Degrassi star turned rapper on his US tour through the end of the year.
There's been a buzz surrounding CHVRCHES long before today's release of The Bones of What You Believe, their debut. The Scottish trio have been on our radar specifically since their SXSW performance at The Fader Fort in Austin and their slew of festival stops over their summer solidified their place in our minds. Stream the Deluxe Version of the album below and if you want to see it live, you're in luck - CHVRCHES will be on tour in both the US and UK from now until March 2014.
Kings of Leon's Mechanical Bull can now be officially streamed via Spotify after its leak almost a full month ago. They have a couple of tour dates this month and next, including stops at Global Citizen Festival and Austin City Limits.
Providence alt-rockers Deer Tick dropped Negativity today after releasing tracks via various outlets and a pre-release stream on Pandora Premieres. Catch them on tour through mid-November.
Last but not least, Icona Pop released THIS IS... ICONA POP today, an appropriately yet aggressively named LP to act as their full-length debut. Find the duo on tour this October and December.
