Four Beatles biopics in 2027 this, four Beatles biopics in 2027 that. What about 99 great Canadian songs coming together right now, over the week's best new music? If that won't help tide you over, nothing will.

k-os returns with a previously unreleased Atlantis: Hymns for Disco track, and Charlotte Day Wilson leads off her sophomore album with "I Don't Love You." Meanwhile, Sum 41 offer the latest glimpse of Heaven :x: Hell, and Kaïa Kater teams up with Taj Mahal.

This week in album releases, we have new LPs from Corb Lund (El Viejo), Shaina Hayes (Kindergarten Heart), Allie X (Girl with No Face), Moonshine, Elephant Stone, Royal Tusk and Little Kid.

Elsewhere, Mac DeMarco covers Haruomi Hosono, and Fucked Up get a No Age remix, while poolblood previews their new EP, and Close Talker join forces with Wyatt C. Lewis. We also have album announcements and promising lead singles from Blunt Chunks, Old Man Luedecke, Nicolette & the Nobodies, Hollow Twin, Alix Fernz, Scenic Route to Alaska and the Secret Beach.
