The Release Radar 22/09/17: The Killers, Morrissey, Wolf Alice and more

In the midst of the chaotic crisis that’s occurring across the Atlantic in the Caribbean, the US and Mexico, we often reflect on our fortunate geographical location and think how things could be very different were we to be in another place in the world. A band, who have suffered their own fair share of battles, both physically and mentally, are The Killers, the Las Vegas rock giants who return this week with a beautifully honest record in Wonderful Wonderful, an album which highlights the significant holes in the band’s relationships with each other as well as in their own lives.


Legendary alternative singer and former frontman for The Smiths, Morrissey returns for the first time since 2014 with new single Spend the Day in Bed. One of the UK’s most loved indie rock bands Wolf Alice release another song, Heavenward, ahead of next week’s second record. Indie rock favourites The Hunna release their first track of a potential new second album with Summer. One of rock’s most energetic and characteristic singer-songwriters, Barns Courtney, releases yet another single, this time called Champion.

It’s a big week for the Cyrus family as Miley’s younger sister Noah Cyrus continues building her solo career up with new track Again featuring XXXTENTACION.

The sensational Maggie Rogers continues to show the world just why she is music’s next great thing on her latest single Split Stones.
