Lana Del Rey, Lust for LifeWhile the world-weary chronicler of post-millennial love is smiling on the cover of her fourth album, sadness still lurks at the edges of its dreamy, nostalgic songs. Arriving just in time for the summer-bummer dog days, Lust for Life features cameos from the Weeknd, Sean Ono Lennon and Del Rey’s spiritual godmother Stevie Nicks.

Nine Inch Nails, Add Violence EPThe second in a planned trilogy of EPs from Trent Reznor’s main project “contains all the aggression, abjection and self-loathing that solidified his position as alt-rock’s Original Angster, but with the measured restraint of a man his age,” writes Kory Grow.

Romeo Santos, GoldenThe king of bachata – newly enshrined at Madame Tussaud’s after a successful online campaign to get the former Aventura leader cast in wax – presents love songs that simmer and sigh as they combine traditional Dominican dance music with modern-day beats. A few big-name guests drop by: megaproducer Swizz Beatz assists on the sparkling “Premio”; reggaeton masters Daddy Yankee and Nicky Jam turn up the heat on “Bella y Sensual”; R&B upstart Jessie Reyez faces off with Santos on the torch-y “Un Vuelo a la”; and loverman Julio Iglesias brings charm to “El Amigo.” But Santos’ silky voice is the main attraction, sneaking between and through the intricate guitar lines that define bachata while also tempering the vibe on more club-ready tracks like “Sin Filtro.” Maura JohnstonHear: Amazon Music Unlimited | Apple Music | SoundCloud Go | Spotify | Tidal

Steve Aoki, Steve Aoki Presents KolonyThe showman DJ and entrepreneur’s latest collection has a slew of big-name guests from the hip-hop world, including Lil Uzi Vert, Migos, Gucci Mane and Lil Yachty. “This album was largely based on relationships and friends,” he tells Rolling Stone. “Most of these artists you can’t just call their manager and do a song with these artists, because you have to develop a relationship – most of these artists already have their favorite producers, [and] they have their own albums to attend to. If they’re going to do a feature, it’ll be with their friend, or someone that they really respect. I cultivated great friendships with a lot of these artists that, I’m proud to say, led to the completion of the album.”Hear: Amazon Music Unlimited | Apple Music | Spotify | Tidal read more at rollingstone.com
