Beck coloursCapitolBeck’s ‘Colours.’

In this prolific week for new music, Beck, St. Vincent, Robert Plant of Led Zeppelin, the Wu-Tang Clan, and English rock prodigy King Krule all released new albums. 

Here are the 5 best songs from the past week that you can stream right now:

Beck -- 'Colours'

Beck's 13th studio album 'Colours' commences with its shape-shifting title track, a pop-structured song backed by atmospheric synths, lively drumming, and a shockingly effective use of pan flute.

St. Vincent -- 'Young Lover'

Annie Clark of St. Vincent paints a troubling portrait of love and drug abuse on 'Young Lover,' a moving standout track from her eclectic fifth album, 'MASSEDUCTION.'

Robert Plant -- 'Keep It Hid'

'Keep It Hid' is a highlight from Led Zeppelin singer Robert Plant's 11th solo album, 'Carry Fire.' Built around a whirling, Radiohead-like synth, the four-minute track features cryptic lyricism and a restrained, yet potent, vocal performance from Plant.

Wu-Tang Clan -- 'If Time Is Money (Fly Navigation)'

Method Man holds down an upbeat soul-sample loop with cunning, pun-filled verses on 'If Time Is Money (Fly Navigation),' a stellar cut from the seventh Wu-Tang Clan album, 'The Saga Continues.'

King Krule -- 'Biscuit Town'

English singer-songwriter Archy Marshall (King Krule) opens his spacey third studio album 'The Ooz' with a jazz-rap-influenced mediation on bipolarity that rhymes 'Motorola' with the name of Gianfranco Zola, an Italian soccer player from the 1990s.
