“I always love coming back to Ireland. Irish audiences really are among the best in the world. I am so looking forward to stepping onto that stage in the magnificent stadium that is Croke Park on Friday 24 July”- Ed Sheeran.
It’s 16 years since their last album as a four-piece and 24th April sees the release of a brand new album from blur on Parlophone, titled The Magic Whip.
The recordings, which began during a five-day break in touring in Spring 2013 – at Avon Studios in Kowloon, Hong Kong – were put aside when the group finished touring and returned to their respective lives.
Last November Graham Coxon revisited the tracks and, drafting in blur’s early producer Stephen Street, he worked with the band on the material. Albarn then added lyrics and the 12 tracks of The Magic Whip are the result.
The ‘Brit Awards 2015’ album combines the best of the present with the best of the past: a triple CD set covering an astonishing array of musical talent, from the best of the present to the best of the past.
CD1 & 2 features some amazing pop exclusives including the first use of the massive ‘Thinking Out Loud’ by Ed Sheeran, ‘Stay With Me’ by Sam Smith, ‘Budapest’ by George Ezra, ‘Rather Be’ by Clean Bandit, ‘Steal My Girl’ by One Direction and Hozier’s haunting ‘Take Me To Church’. In addition there are some of the biggest rock / indie / alt. songs of 2014, including the critically acclaimed The War On Drugs ‘Red Eye’, Jack White’s Led Zep-esque ‘Lazaretto’, Royal Blood ‘Figure It Out’ and First Aid Kit’s sublime alt. folk hit ‘My Silver Lining’.
Death Cab for Cutie Reveal Symbolic Title of ‘Evocative’ New Album
On ‘Kintsugi,’ Ben Gibbard and Co. attempt to make the most of a guitarist’s departure: “This is an opportunity for the band”
Chris Walla may have left Death Cab for Cutie last year, but he’s still with the band. That was probably to be expected; after 17 years together, it’s difficult to just pick up and move on. So while Walla’s departure created what frontman Ben Gibbard called “a line in the sand” – a demarcation between past and present – it didn’t stop him from contributing to Death Cab’s new album, both as a musician and an inspiration for its title.
The singer-songwriter will perform from Dublin’s Whelan’s, where he witnessed a life-changing Damien Rice concert.
