Seven years after the release of their last proper studio album, Plastic Beach, Gorillaz are back with their brand new album Humanz. Rumours of this album began to surface two years ago while Damon Albarn was touring with Blur and those rumours escalated last year with confirmed reports that he was in the studio working on a new album. The result is Humanz, a wonderful album that sees Gorillaz return to their very best.
Well here we go, four new songs by Gorillaz have dropped this evening with the stand out track being Andromeda. That’s not to say the other three tracks are bad of course, far from it, but in this article I’ll just be focusing on Andromeda which is absolutely exquisite. Take a listen for yourself:
News emerged last year of Chuck Berry’s first new studio album since 1979 and the first song has been released. After Chuck’s passing a few days ago on the 18th March his new album will be a posthumous release, but it’s a joy that he was able to finish the album before his death. The track is called Big Boys and contains the delicious guitar riffs you’ll always associated with Chuck Berry.
Last month John Mayer released Wave One from his new album The Search For Everything, essentially the first four songs of the album.

Today Bob Dylan announced a new album, a three disc album to be precise, containing 30 songs considered American standards. The album, Triplicate, isn’t out until the 31st March but one of the songs from that album has been posted online, a gorgeous cover of Sinatra’s I Could Have Told You. Take a listen:
John Mayer has released the first four songs from his new album, The Search For Everything. It’s not a standard release process as he’s releasing four songs per month until the whole thing is out in full, which is certainly something fresh and unique. Wave One features four incredible songs including the first single Love On The Weekend which was released before Christmas last year. Each song is superb in their own unique way and if these four songs are anything to go by, The Search For Everything will be one of the best albums of 2017.
