March music madness: 8 new tracks from queer artists to play on repeat

March isn’t quite over, but it’s been another great month for new releases from queer artists. Scroll down for eight of our favorite new tracks — your future playlists will thank us.

King Princess – “For My Friends”

Let’s hear it for friends! In an endless sea of music dedicated to romantic love, King Princess’ new song “For My Friends” champions that extra-special love of the platonic variety. Because when love songs give way to breakup ballads, your besties will still be there for you.

Stefano May – “Find My Way”

Inspired by his mother, who raised him to pursue his dreams with the strength to get over the “funky” moments in life, Stefano May’s “Find My Way” is an upbeat, danceable song oozing with elements of funk, jazz and soul reminiscent of all the legendary Motown hits.

Jake Wesley Rogers – “Lavender Forever”

Jake Wesley Rogers’ music attracted immediate attention for its unapologetic and explicit discussion of gay themes, and his uplifting track “Lavender Forever” will have you bursting with queer joy.

MUNA – “Anything But Me”

Pop trio MUNA blend a little bit country, a little bit rock and roll, and a lotta bit electro-pop for the upbeat breakup song “Anything But Me.” It’s that stage of the breakup where you realize it’s been fun, but it’s done.

Still Woozy, Remi Wolf – “Pool”

Queer singer Remi Wolf lends her funky soul pop vocals to this melodic Still Woozy track that would be a great addition for a mix CD to give to your crush…if people still made those.

Syd, Lucky Daye – “CYBAH”

“CYBAH” stands for “Can You Break A Heart” (duh), and we’d wager that Syd certainly can. She teams up with R&B singer Lucky Daye on this track.

Soccer Mommy – Shotgun

“Shotgun” is the lead single off Soccer Mommy’s (aka Sophie Allison) upcoming album Sometimes, Forever. She says of the indie pop song: “‘Shotgun’ is all about the joys of losing yourself in love. I wanted it to capture the little moments in a relationship that stick with you.”

Ezra Furman – “Point Me Toward The Real”

“Point Me Toward The Real” is Ezra Furman’s first solo release since coming out as trans in 2021, and judging by the track, she’s done dealing with anybody’s nonsense. “Point me to the real motherf–kers,” Furman sings.
