STEVE VAI – MODERN...

Legacy Recordings, the catalog division of Sony Music Entertainment, will release Steve Vai’sModern Primitive / Passion and Warfare 25th Anniversary Edition, a celebratory 2CD collection of classic tracks and previously unreleased music, on Friday, June 24. Steve Vai and Legacy Recordings are commemorating the 25th anniversary of Passion and Warfare with a special 2CD edition of the album which includes the first-ever release of Vai’s Modern Primitive songs and recordings. Based on song sketches and works-in-progress penned and recorded by Vai following the release of Flex-Able, his debut album, in January 1984, the music on Modern Primitive has been completed by Vai for release as a full album disc and the 2nd CD is the bonus remastering of the Passion and Warfare 25th Anniversary Edition. “The music on Flex-Able is so vastly different from Passion and Warfare, one could wonder if the same guy actually made both records,” Steve writes in his liner notes for the collection. “Modern Primitive is the missing link between these two ...

RADIOHEAD – A MOON...

XL Recordings is pleased to present A Moon Shaped Pool, the ninth studio album from Radiohead. Preceded by the tracks ‘Burn The Witch’ and ‘Daydreaming’, their followup to 2011’s The King Of Limbs is produced by long time collaborator, Nigel Godrich. A Moon Shaped Pool features 11 tracks (presented in alphabetical order) and includes “True Love Waits,” which the band has performed many times over the years, but never recorded outside of their 2001 live EP I Might Be Wrong. Thom Yorke played "Desert Island Disk" during a Paris show last year. "Present Tense" was also featured at December's climate change concert, and it dates back to 2008. "The Numbers" is another song Yorke showcased in December—it was then referred to as "Silent Spring." Radiohead debuted "Identikit" and "Ful Stop" on tour in 2012. The video for lead track Burn The Witch was viewed 10.5 million times in the first 3 days while the Paul Thomas Anderson directed clip for ...

THE TRAGICALLY HIP – MAN...

The Tragically Hip ‐ Man Machine Poem. The band’s 14th studio album takes its name from a track on their Gold selling 2012 release, Now For Plan A, and was recorded at The Hip’s home studio The Bathouse, produced by Kevin Drew (Broken Social Scene, Andy Kim, Arts & Crafts label co‐founder) and Dave Hamelin (The Stills). “We’re moving forward while embracing a memory,” says Kevin Drew. “That was what I said to the band going into this recording.” He explains that muscle memory is why we love songs, it’s the most important thing a band has. “This album is about three things,” he continues. “Memory, transformation, and truth. I think it’s a fantastic record.” The Tragically Hip are in the best possible place a band can be: they’re brothers, they play so easily together, comfortable in their skins enough to try any idea, confident enough to know what’s right. No team of ace Swedish consultant‐writers needed; The Hip ...

MUMFORD & SONS – JOHANNESBURG

MUMFORD & SONS –...

Mumford & Sons are very proud to announce details of a new set of recordings entitled Johannesburg, made with Baaba Maal, Beatenberg and The Very Best. The songs were recorded in Studio 2 and the Auditorium of the The South African Broadcasting Corporation, Johannesburg in February over two all‐day‐and–all–night sessions and produced by Mumford & Sons and The Very Best’s Swedish electronic music maestro, Johan Hugo. The song which opens Johannesburg, There Will Be Time, is a belter. Tender but not shackled by any sense of restraint. It has that special inference of yearning that Mumford & Sons do so incredibly well, and when combining that with the musicianship of Baaba Maal’s glorious crew and his vocals which interweave mesmerisingly with that yearning thing, you’ve got something really quite otherworldly. Otherworldly indeed.

JAKE BUGG – ON MY ONE

JAKE BUGG – ON MY ONE

The album title takes its name from a saying in Jake’s Nottingham hometown and couldn’t be more apt. Instead of saying on my own, they say on my one. “In a lot of ways it sums up this record because it mainly has been me on my own,” Jake says. “I saw this as the logical next step in my development as a songwriter. It was a challenge but something I felt I had to do.” Jake wrote all eleven songs, played most of the instruments, and produced most of the album (Jacknife Lee produced 3 tracks). The results are simply staggering. Following the incredible success of his first two albums, the double platinum 2012 debut ‘Jake Bugg’ and the top five 2013 follow‐up ‘Shangri La’, this new disc firmly establishes Jake as one of Britain’s most exciting talents. Recorded in London, Los Angeles and Nottingham, highlights are many and include the moving ‘Love Hope And Misery’ driven ...

GARBAGE – STRANGE LITTLE...

“Last fall, Garbage revisited their seminal self‐titled debut with a special 20th anniversary reissue and tour. This year, however, the alt rockers are looking to add to their catalog with their first album in four years, Strange Little Birds… It spans 11 new songs, with titles such as “If I Lost You”, “Even Though Our Love Is Doomed”, and “Teaching Little Fingers to Play”. Recording sessions took place in the basement of band member and renowned producer Butch Vig as well as Los Angeles studio Red Razor Sounds. As a press release notes, Strange Little Birds is the least “fussed over” album in Garbage’s discography. “The guiding principle was keeping it fresh, and relying on instinct both lyrically and musically,” front‐person Shirley Manson says. Following their hunches eventually led them back to their roots — specifically, the album they’d just celebrated. “To me, this record, funnily enough, has the most to do with the first record than any ...

IAN THOMAS – A LIFE IN SONG

IAN THOMAS – A LIFE IN...

On A Life In Song, legendary Canadian singer/songwriter Ian Thomas looks back on a hits‐heavy catalogue spanning more than four decades. This is a retrospective with a difference, though. Rather than being simply a greatest hits collection, A Life In Song features dramatic orchestral reinterpretations of Thomas’ musically and lyrically eloquent material. Along with producer Peter Cardinali, Ian recorded these new versions with the acclaimed Prague Philharmonic Orchestra. “Our goal was to integrate the song right into the orchestra or in some cases to use the orchestra to underscore the lyric,” Thomas explains. The album features songs that were hits for both Thomas and such artists as Santana, America, Chicago and Manfred Mann’s Earth Band plus more recent material and one brand new composition, “So Cold In The City.” The result is a record destined to both thrill longtime fans and make new converts.
