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.
As we stride further into the summer, we are gifted with a huge list of new releases this week. Spanning a variety of genres, there are some sparkling summer anthems alongside rock giants. Whatever your taste in music, there’s something here for everyone and whether you’re listening on a beach in the Algarve or trying not to sweat to much in the office, we’re guaranteed you’ll enjoy them. Here are our Tracks of the Week with in depth reviews.
No one could ever have predicted the quality of new music that we received last week but luckily are able to keep this staggering run of excellent releases going this week with another star studded releases schedule. Leading the way this week are LCD Soundsystem who return for the first time since 2014. The James Murphy led indie icons release two tracks in call the police and american dream. It’s also a huge week for One Direction fans as both Harry Styles and Niall Horan release new tracks.
