With the autumn months quickly approaching, but Texas heat not getting the memo, it can be hard to get into the fall spirit. One of the best ways to channel that fall feel is through music. Here are some recently released songs you should add to your fall playlist that will hopefully help conjure up a more fall feel.
“Happier Than Ever” by Billie Eilish
In this soul-crushing ballad, Eilish screams about seemingly a previous relationship. This song evokes a whirlwind of emotions, as it develops from a slow, melodic beat to a total punk saga. The namesake of her most recent album, this song will have you screaming the lyrics in the car on the way to your nearest pumpkin patch.
“Adeline” by Penny and Sparrow
If you’re looking for a more slow fall beat, “Adeline” should definitely make it onto your playlist. This song gives major Hozier or John Mayer vibes. Beautiful vocals, with a guitar and violin to match, this song feels like driving through a forest as the leaves change color.
“The 90s” by Finneas
A little more upbeat than the last tune, “The 90s” is FINNEAS’s latest single, and it does not disappoint. It radiates nostalgia, the feeling of regrets and time passing. It has all the angst that comes with the fall vibe, but add in a bit of spice in the form of electronic instrumentals.
“Stay” by girl in red
I’ve been absolutely obsessed with this cover of The Kid LAROI and Justin Bieber’s pop hit. This slowed-down sound is perfect for fall, and girl in red’s voice sounds like silk over the relaxed track.
“Justified” by Kacey Musgraves
If you’re experiencing heartbreak this fall, Kacey Musgraves’s new album, Starcrossed, will hit you where it hurts. “Justified” details coming out of a fun summer into heartbreak weather. Perfect if you’re looking for a little country twang with an uppity beat, “Justified” is a glimpse into the rest of the album.
“Awe of Her” by Joshua Henry
Perfect for fans of John Legend and Labrinth, this emotional song feels like a warm hug. Henry’s voice is phenomenal, rich in tune, and incredibly soulful. Adding this song to your fall playlist will leave you with chills.
“Silk Chiffon” by MUNA feat. Phoebe Bridgers
A slightly different sound coming from Phoebe Bridgers, this song has a heavy pop-rock aspect to it that is refreshing and fun. This is a great song to add if you’re looking for something a little more upbeat. I can totally imagine dancing to this one in the near fall future.
