Must Listen, New Music: Week 1

My must-listen list of music containing songs, albums, and a mixtape all released between April 24th and May 1st.

Lennon Stella- Three.Two.One (album)

Lennon’s first studio album dropped on April 24th, and came highly anticipated following the release of one of the albums’ hit singles “Kissing Other People” (which was released during 2019). Stella is known for her performance on the hit TV drama, Nashville, centered around country music. However, her first studio album showcases her own personal style which isn’t country, but indie pop.
