The first week of each month always brings about an air of anticipation of what could come and it’s safe to say that October has brought out the big guns already. Earlier this year, we were luckily enough to hear the stadium anthem Wall of Glass from former Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher. This week, the legendary singer brings out his first ever debut album As You Were, an album which finally brings out the quality we’ve been expecting from him.
Following last night’s spectacular Mercury Prize ceremony, we obviously have to give our upmost congratulations to Sampha, the well deserved winner of this year’s prize, whose debut album is a clear reason as to why new releases and debut albums are so pivotal to the music industry. For those wanting to see what all the fuss is about, check out the review for Sampha’s Process from our very own Jamie Hancock in our album review section. Aside from the Mercury Prize, there’s a sensational list of new releases today, headed up by the incredible Foo Fighters, who release their seventh studio album Concrete & Gold, a record which combines the rock band’s signature sounds into one completely brilliant album. The Killers continue their teasing trickle of releases as well with Some Kind Of Love.
