Blur – The Magic Whip – The New Album

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.

Death Cab for Cutie Reveal Symbolic Title of ‘Evocative’ New Album.

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.

Coldplay – Ghost Stories Live 2014

Filmed by Grammy-nominated director Paul Dugdale, Ghost Stories Live 2014 documents the band’s unique performance of the Ghost Stories album to a small handful of fans in March 2014, two months prior to the album’s release.

R.E.M.TV

R.E.M. and MTV came of age together. From the start, their fates were intertwined, with the band releasing its first single in July 1981, just weeks before the network premiered its first music video. From that point on, MTV documented everything about R.E.M, their music, their stories, and ultimately, their decision to disband in 2011.

David Guetta Announces Track Listing for Sixth Studio Album

Listen, David Guetta’s incredible sixth studio album, set for worldwide release on November 21st –arriving on Atlantic/Parlophone and available now for pre-order now on iTunes  – unites three years of production work with David’s desire to produce records that strike a chord with his huge army of fans and equally, opens the hearts, ears and minds of others. His most sophisticated and unexpected work, Listen is an evolution, with a range of surprises, from mid-tempo new single ‘Dangerous,’ to a ballad with Sia. Changing his production style from creating beats and laying vocals to working in a more traditional sense, this song-based album was crafted from simple guitar/voice or piano/voice, then produced. Listen is about taking risks, and the results are spectacular.
