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.
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.

This week’s releases are headed up by Justin Bieber, who releases Friends, a collaboration with BloodPop.
