LENNY KRAVITZ – RAISE...

Set for release in September, RAISE VIBRATION will be Lenny Kravitz’s 11th studio album released on CD and 2LPs in multiple standard and deluxe formats. The record promises to be one of Kravitz’s most eclectic. “Low,” the song that got the whole process started, developed into a smooth funk showcase; what Kravitz calls “my Quincy Jones school” complete with horns and a string arrangement. The title track is lean power-trio rock, while the ballad “Here to Love” features Kravitz backed only by his piano and a string section. “Johnny Cash,” inspired by an encounter with the late legend, is what Kravitz jokingly calls “psychedelic funk meets country.” As usual, Kravitz plays most of the instruments himself, with longtime guitarist Craig Ross. Lenny Kravitz has transcended genre, style, race and class into a 20-year musical career, one which revels in the rich influences of '60s and '70s soul, rock and funk. Kravitz's talents as ...

PAUL MCCARTNEY – EGYPT...

Paul McCartney invites you on a musical journey to Egypt Station, estimated time of arrival September 7, 2018 by way of Capitol Records. Sharing a title with one of Paul’s own paintings, Egypt Station is the first full album of all-new McCartney music since 2013’s international chart-topping NEW. Preceded by two of its tracks just released as double A-sides--plaintive ballad “I Don’t Know” and raucous stomper “Come On To Me”—Egypt Station was recorded between Los Angeles, London and Sussex, and produced (with the exception of one Ryan Tedder track) by Greg Kurstin (Adele, Beck, Foo Fighters). Of the forthcoming album’s enigmatic title, Paul says, “I liked the words ‘Egypt Station.’ It reminded me of the ‘album’ albums we used to make.., Egypt Station starts off at the station on the first song and then each song is like a different station. So it gave us some idea to base all the songs around that. I think of it as ...

DEVOTCHKA – THIS NIGHT...

This Night Falls Forever is DeVotchKa’s most ambitious album yet with more detailed arrangements, more people involved including full orchestras and an overall bigger sound. The band’s sixth studio album features 10 tracks written and produced by frontman Nick Urata. And from the album’s first lines (“I can draw a straight line through my mind right back to the good times/ back when all the stars were aligned”) it’s clear that This Night Falls Forever is a heartrending look backwards and forwards at once—the sound of a man searching within to face his future.

AMOS LEE – MY NEW MOON

Singer/songwriter Amos Lee says his seventh studio album My New Moon is “a dedication…it’s an offering - an altar of sorts to those who have shared their sorrows with me.” It is a product of profound human experiences; loss, grief, hope, healing, love, sorrow, and rejuvenation. Each track on My New Moon takes a journey through these intense and personal experiences. Opening track “No More Darkness, No More Light” was rewritten entirely after the school shooting in Parkland, Florida, and speaks to the hope for change that lies in amongst tragic situations and challenges. “Little Light,” written for a young girl who beat cancer, is a positive message of spreading light for the world to see, even if you’re facing hardship. “Hang On, Hang On” reflects the helplessness that comes after the loss of a loved one, “Crooked” brings to light the difficult and confusing times we’ve faced throughout history in America, ...

TROYE SIVAN – BLOOM

The New York Times, in a Sunday Arts & Leisure cover story, observed “Troye Sivan Is a New Kind of Pop Star: Here, Queer and Used to It The 22‐year‐old singer is climbing the charts while demonstrating how his sexual orientation is both part of his art and beside the point.” Pitchfork noted, “his latest single, ‘Bloom,’ is all about living in the delicious present. A gentle, rolling beat and strips of electric guitar cut through airy synth pads…Vocally, Sivan’s as open and earnest as he’s ever sounded.” Noisey said, “Sivan has re‐announced himself as a pop heavyweight, and one who is not here to make any compromises at that.” NYLON declared, “It’s Troye Sivan’s year. If this past January’s ‘My My My!’ single cemented him as a budding gay icon, his latest release, ‘Bloom,’ is his grand flowering.” "My My My!" was the top trending topic worldwide on Twitter after its release in January.

JUSTICE – WOMAN WORLDWIDE

JUSTICE – WOMAN...

Woman Worldwide album, a new live studio recording of their 2016 album Woman along with standout tracks from their 10 year career. The new album was a result of Xavier and Gaspard adapting their new songs to be played on tour, in the process discovering a new dimension of their live form. After one year of testing, performing, refining and recording them on the road, they went back to the studio in Paris to give them the polish and precision that live performance doesn’t always allow. Making a new album of re-envisioned songs inspired by their love of the live show is also in line with Justice’s release history thus far, which has seen them put out two studio albums each followed by a live recording. But, rather than repeat themselves, they have made Woman Worldwide sound like a proper studio album whereas A Cross The Universe and Access All Arenas purposely sounded like bootlegs. The new set also fittingly ...
