Tulip Drive - Jimmie Allen - Stoney Creek Records - Much like Tulip Drive's predecessors, the album's title is deeply personal to Allen's family ties - Tulip Drive is the name of the street in Lewes, DE his late grandmother lived on. Allen's 2018 debut album Mercury Lane was named for the street Allen grew up on, and his 2020 & 2021 releases, Bettie James & Bettie James Gold Edition, were named for his grandmother (Bettie Snead) and father (James "Big Jim" Allen), who passed away in 2014 and 2019, respectively.
"This is the first [album] where I chose to write songs about my own personal experiences, thoughts and hopes. A lot of these songs are based off things I went through when I was in later in high school and college, at a place where I was just learning a lot of life lessons from my grandmother," he has said of Tulip Drive.
The result is a body of work that reflects Allen's signature approach to music, including appearances on the 17-song record that range from fellow stars (Jennifer Lopez, CeeLo Green, T-Pain) and rising talent (Katie Ohh) to family ties (his 8-year-old son, Aadyn).

After a thirty eight year hiatus, the rejuvenated band have just completed putting the finishing touches to the first Altered Images music since the album “Bite” was released in 1983. It’s an upbeat and contemporary sounding album which sounds like a natural progression of the Altered Images journey and sound, all topped with the instantly recognisable vocals of Clare Grogan. The album is produced by former Altered Images band member and acclaimed producer Stephen Lironi and features 12 songs that Clare Grogan has co-written with Stephen, Bernard Butler and Bobby Bluebell. The celebrated Scottish band fronted by singer Clare Grogan started life as a post-punk band, winning Best New Group at the NME Awards before becoming one of the most recognisable pop cover stars of the 1980s with six UK top 40 hits between the years of 1981-1983, including the massive Top 10 singles “Happy Birthday” (#2), “I Could Be Happy” (#7) and “Don’t Talk To Me About Love” (#7), all lifted from their three Top 20/Top 30 albums released in the same time frame (two selling Silver).
On the surface, Freedom is a reflection on growing up, childhood friends who ended up in prison or worse, male identity, McMahon’s father, and his mother, who was diagnosed with terminal cancer at the beginning of recording. The characters that populate the musical world of Freedom are a colorful mix of reality and fantasy: father and mother, Amen Dunes, teenage glue addicts and Parisian drug dealers, ghosts above the plains, fallen surf heroes, vampires, thugs from Naples and thugs from Houston, the emperor of Rome, Jews, Jesus, Tashtego, Perseus, even McMahon himself. Each character portrait is a representation of McMahon, of masculinity, and of his past.
Yet, if anything, these 11 songs are a relinquishing of all of them through exposition; a gradual reorientation of being away from the acquired definitions of self we all cling to.
The music, as a response or even a solution to the album’s darker themes, is tough and joyous, rhythmic and danceable; a true NYC street record.
Jeff Beck found a kindred spirit in Johnny Depp when the two met in 2016. They bonded quickly over cars and guitars and spent most of their time together trying to make each other laugh. At the same time, Beck's appreciation grew for Depp's serious songwriting skills and his ear for music. That talent and their chemistry convinced Beck they should make an album together.
Depp agreed and they started in 2019. Over the next three years, they recorded a mix of Depp originals along with a wide range of covers that touches on everything from Celtic and Motown, to the Beach Boys and Killing Joke. In 2020, during the pandemic, they previewed their collaboration with their well-timed cover of John Lennon's "Isolation."
The duo's 13-track album, dubbed 18, will arrive on July 15. Beck explains the album title: "When Johnny and I started playing together, it really ignited our youthful spirit and creativity. We would joke about how we felt 18 again, so that just became the album title too."
18 will be available on CD and digitally, with a 180-gram black vinyl version coming September 30th. The cover features an illustration of Beck and Depp as 18-year-olds that was drawn and designed by Beck's wife Sandra.
For the last 12 years Depp has recorded and toured with the Hollywood Vampires, a band he started with Alice Cooper and Joe Perry. The supergroup has released two studio albums that include guest appearances by some of rocks biggest names: Paul McCartney, Dave Grohl, and Joe Walsh. The list also includes Beck, who played guitar on "Welcome To Bushwackers," a song on Rise, the Vampires' second album, which came out in 2019.
Soon after, Depp asked Beck to play lead on a tune he'd written, the album's first single "This Is A Song For Miss Hedy Lamarr," an homage to the actress/inventor. Beck says it was the catalyst for the collaboration and is one of his favorite songs on the new album. "I was blown away by it," he says. "That song is one of the reasons I asked him to make an album with me."
Of Beck, Depp adds, ""It's an extraordinary honor to play and write music with Jeff, one of the true greats and someone I am now privileged enough to call my brother."
