Listen to highlights from all the best new artists of the last few months in the Best New Artists playlist on Spotify.

At Pigeons & Planes, we always like being early. Who doesn't? With Best New Artists, the issue of timing is always something we consider, and sometimes we realize that maybe we jump the gun. Like, last month we included Baby Keem after a brief interview with him in 2018 and a handful of great new singles. Then he dropped his excellent new album DIE FOR MY B*TCH, and this month would be the perfect time for inclusion in Best New Artists. Should we have waited a month? It's something we still argue about, but sometimes we find something we like and just can't wait to share it, and being early is still being better than being late, right?

So here we are again, with a new batch of rising artists who probably haven't even peaked yet. Enjoy, and keep an eye out—some of them will probably do something great by the time we're working on next month's Best New Artists feature.
