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:
Last month John Mayer released Wave One from his new album The Search For Everything, essentially the first four songs of the album. And today Mayer released the next four, Wave Two, and I’ve been listening to it non-stop all day. These four songs build on the brilliance of the first four and contain so many different vibes, tones and genres it’s unreal.
Recently I had the huge pleasure of interviewing Bobby Whitlock, one quarter of the legendary Derek and the Dominos, on his soon to be released new studio album Tornillo and upcoming tour. I interviewed Bobby for the first time back in 2012 and have spoken to him multiple times as I complete my biography on Derek and the Dominos, and speaking to him again on his new album and tour was a joy.
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.
On what would have been David Bowie’s 70th birthday, a new EP dropped containing the last ever recordings taken from the Blackstar album sessions. The songs were technically revealed in the last quarter of 2016 but having them all together on an EP like this is a beautiful touch, especially considering the time of release.
