If you haven’t noticed, it’s been a pretty good day for new music.

In addition to a new single from Robin “I Know You Want It” Thicke, a snazzy music video from Les Phoenix, and a deep dive into Ciara’s shower-dancing technique, the ‘nets have yielded two more goodies thanks to Beck and Janelle Monae.

Titled “I Won’t Be Long,” Beck’s new track is his second standalone single of the summer and, like it’s predecessor “Defriended,” has an interestingly low-key but spacey Beta Band-ish vibe,  with a dash of Spoon thrown into the mix.

Which, perhaps, is a long way of saying it’s very Beck; take a listen below:

As for the fun.-lovin’ Monae, her new Wendy Morgan-directed video for “Dance Apocalyptic” (the new single off Monae’s upcoming third album The Electric Lady) finds the singer playing an array of characters, including one that (gasp!) wears her hair down.

The clip is apparently just a snippet from a short film called The Dance Apocalyptic, which has something to do with zombies or the end of the world or something. Until that comes out, you can take a look at the video below:
