A Failure of Imagination?
#3
How broadly are we defining 'new and cool' in this context?

In my experience, it's now more common for a book to present a mix of new and old(er) ideas rather than the entire story being built around some new concept or technology and its implications. It's also not uncommon to have a book present an idea that I happen to know isn't totally new (given my age and interests) but which I also know is very rarely explored or hasn't been (AFAIK) for decades.

Also, are you only talking about hard SF or the entire range?

If you're looking for new stuff to read, I might be able to suggest some things although it would help to have some parameters to work with so I don't point you at stuff you definitely wouldn't be into.
