Welcome to our Top 20 New Indie Songs for September 2020. September was one of the strongest months for new music we have ever seen. As a result, it was extremely difficult to try and narrow it down to our top 20. You can listen to the playlist for September which includes all 83 songs that we chose from. We are also one month closer to picking our top songs for the year! You can follow our top 100 songs of the year so far here.
Each month we pick our favorite new releases for the month. It is always difficult as there are so many great Indie Songs released each month, however, this month was even more difficult than most. Here is why. We have recently made a few changes that have exposed us to even more great music than usual. First, we have just passed our first year as a website and therefore, have followed hundreds of Indie Artists along the way. As a result, this past Friday, we had 112 new songs suggested to us from Spotify. Wow! Second, we have recently raised our maximum listeners on Spotify to 250K, up from 100K. There are several reasons for this, but the end result is that we have much more music to choose from each and every day. Thirdly, we have raised our list to the best 20 songs, up from 15, so we can fit all this great music in. Without further ado, here are our top 20 New Indie Songs for the month of September.
