Following an entertaining halloween, we move into the penultimate month of 2017 with the return of one of hip hop’s finest groups. After seven years, the Pharrell Williams featuring N.E.R.D. return with a new single, Lemon, which features the one and only Rihanna. Making a move for album of the year this week is the hugely talented Sam Smith, who releases his second studio record The Thrill Of It All, three years after the release of his world-conquering debut.
As October comes to an end, we’re full of anticipation for the Halloween weekend as well as the start of November. It’s astonishing to think that we’ve been running for nearly ten months already. It’s one of the truest cliche’s around but time really does fly when you’re doing the things you love, and for us, being able to review some of the best new music around has been an absolute pleasure. Closing October in style this week is the brilliant Selena Gomez, who teams up with superstar DJ Marshmello on latest single Wolves whilst the stunning Plan B brings out Heartbeat.
As universities continue to go back, we look at the final week of September with a nostalgic fondness. Already we’ve had stunning album releases from Foo Fighters and The Killers and this week completes a great month of music with the release of Wolf Alice’s second studio record Visions Of A Life. Making a surprise return to music this week as well is pop’s most renowned diva Beyoncé, who lends her vocals to J Balvin’s track Mi Gente.
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.
As it’s the first day of the legendary Glastonbury Festival, we can all be forgiven if we take our eyes away from this week’s new music releases to focus on the action in Somerset. However, there are some stunning new releases that we feel you should definitely give a listen to. After all, if you take your eye off the ball for a week, who knows what you could miss out on. Here are our Tracks of the Week with in depth reviews.
We are staggeringly almost halfway through 2017 already and the standard of music we have had in the past five months is something we could have only dreamed of. As festival season approaches, the world’s biggest and best artists will be travelling around the world to perform to thousands of people. In light of recent events, we feel that it’s necessary to point out that no matter what happens, we will fight through it. For the people who died having seen their idol Ariana Grande perform in Manchester and for the people who died whilst just wanting to have a great night out in London, we need to continue living our lives to the fullest. The barbaric beliefs of Islamic extremism will never prevail over the love and unity of our society. Instead of destroying us, we are stronger than ever and we will continue going to see our favourite artists, some of which are on this list here. Here are our Tracks of the Week with in depth reviews. We hope you enjoy and in the meantime, stay safe and keep living your lives to the fullest.
After a brilliant first quarter to the year, April has had a lot to live up to and it’s safe to say that this week’s selection of new music has certainly done that and with more huge artists set to return soon, this year is only going to get better. Here are our track’s of the week with in depth review.
