One of the first of no doubt many quarantine songs to come.

Benjamin Gibbard, frontman for Death Cab for Cutie, sings “Life In Quarantine”.

Die Antwoord

Die Antwoord recently dropped House of Zef.

I like “No.1” from this South African hip hop duo.

Powfu

Powfu, a Canadian rapper, released “Death Bed (Coffee For Your Head)” last month, featuring the delightful Beabadoobee, whose song he sampled.

The song has blown up on TikTok with sentimental videos about relationships.

Eminem

Settled in Bangkok avoiding the virus.

There is a melancholy beauty in “Hallelujah”, the new song by Haim.
