“I think it’s one of the best things I’ve done…..and it’s been a pleasure doing it” Paul Weller
Continuing his ever soaring creative peak, Paul Weller releases his 12th studio album “Saturns Pattern” on Friday May 15th on his new label Parlophone.
The follow up to 2012’s UK No. 1 album “Sonik Kicks”, Paul continues to push the boundaries with another kaleidoscopic tour de force delivered with a verve and ambition to shame his contemporaries as he continues to adapt and evolve to stay one step ahead of the pack.
Written and recorded at de facto HQ, Black Barn Studios in Surrey, “Saturns Pattern” was produced by Jan “Stan” Kybert and Paul himself.
Musicians on the album feature some of the touring band faithful: Steve Cradock, Andy Crofts, Ben Gordelier and Steve Pilgrim plus an illustrious roll-call of guest musicians who include The Strypes’ Josh McClorey and Paul’s old mate from Woking Steve Brookes who was guitarist in the original line-up of The Jam. Paul also brought in members of his favourite new band Syd Arthur to add to the proceedings.
Passion, progression, languid grooves and, as ever, spine-tingling rock’n’roll – Paul Weller has, yet again, delivered another masterpiece.
“White Sky” is available as an ‘Instant Grat’ track with pre-orders of the Deluxe Digital formats here.
Tickets for Paul Weller go on sale this Friday at 9am.
Death Cab for Cutie much-anticipated eighth studio album “KINTSUGI” is out this Friday 27th of March in Ireland.
Listen to the album in full exclusively on RTE TEN here.
“KINTSUGI” – which follows 2011’s GRAMMY® Award-nominated “CODES AND KEYS” – marks Death Cab for Cutie’s first new album since the departure last year of founding guitarist/keyboardist/producer Chris Walla.
Recorded in Los Angeles with Rich Costey (Franz Ferdinand, Muse, Interpol) behind the board, the album takes its title from the Japanese art of repairing broken ceramics with precious metals like gold, silver, and platinum, highlighting cracks rather than hiding them.
As such, kintsugi represents a compassionate aesthetic philosophy in which damage and wear are embraced as part of an object’s history.
Johnny is set to mark this year’s Record Store Day with a numbered limited edition 7″ release of his interpretation of Depeche Mode’s 1993 classic “I Feel You”. Johnny played the track live during the closing shows of last December’s North American tour. The single’s b-side is a live version of The Smiths “Please Please Please Let Me Get What I Want”
Two-time Grammy award winning songwriter and frontman of the band fun., NATE RUESS teamed up again with ‘SOME NIGHTS’ collaborators Jeff Bhasker and Emile Haynie on his anthemic new single ‘NOTHING WITHOUT LOVE’ (Fueled By Ramen) out Friday May 22nd pre order here.
The track includes backing vocals from Swedish muse, Lykke Li, along with guitar riffs from iconic Red Hot Chili Peppers’ guitarist, Josh Klinghoffer; and is accompanied by an epic music video directed by Anthony Mandler (fun, Jay Z, Lana Del Rey).
Nate discusses his upcoming solo album, arriving early this summer – in the current issue of Rolling Stone here.
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’.
The singer-songwriter will perform from Dublin’s Whelan’s, where he witnessed a life-changing Damien Rice concert.
It’s been three years since VH1 last aired an episode of their acclaimed performance series Storytellers, but the show will make its grand return 2015 with a new slate of artists and a tinkered format: For the first time, the concerts will be broadcast live on VH1. First up is singer-songwriter Ed Sheeran, who will perform January 24th from Whelan’s in Dublin, Ireland.
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.
