Welcome to June’s TGIF. This month’s new music roundup is starting a little light—the pandemic had already caused a lot of release delays, and now, protests against police brutality have also sparked a music industry blackout. Many artists and labels announced they would not be releasing music this week in order to reflect on the racial injustices occurring in America. We'll continue to update here as new music is released, but to tide you over, here are the latest from newcomers Raleigh Ritchie and Joy Downer, and some old friends, like Neon Trees, and Jason Mraz. Check out all the hot new music below.
