New Release Round-Up 01-10-20
Beach Slang - The Deadbeat Bang Of Heartbreak City - Bridge Nine Records
American rock & roll mainstay Beach Slang release their most accomplished new album to date The Deadbeat Bang Of Heartbreak City, featuring a VERY special guest bassist Tommy Stinson (The Replacements, Guns N Roses), among a rotating gang of friends and players. Drawing comparisons to Jawbreaker and The Replacements, but never approaching easy facsimile, Beach Slang paid tribute to the past by lighting a new torch with their previous critically acclaimed records.
Devon Gilfillian - Black Hole Rainbow - Capitol
"Black Hole Rainbow” was produced by Grammy Award-winning producer Shawn Everett (Alabama Shakes, The War On Drugs) in his iconic Downtown LA studio, with additional album production from Ariel Rechtshaid (Vampire Weekend, HAIM). Shortly after wrapping the recording, Devon and a team from Capitol embarked on a trip to South Africa to grasp the creative vision for the new record. One which you can see very clearly through the imagery associated with the roll out. “Get Out and Get It” was the first single and music video to be release, landing in the top 15 at AAA radio. “Even Though It Hurts” followed not long after with a visualizer and saw a lot of love from fans and critics alike. The upcoming record named “Black Hold Rainbow” will undoubtedly be one of the best debuts in 2020.
Selena Gomez - Rare - Interscope Records
The eagerly awaited new album from multi-platinum singer and actress Selena Gomez. "Rare" - which includes the recently released #1 single "Lose You To Love Me" and "Look At Her Now".
Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross - Bird Box - The Null Corporation
Extended compositions and explorations created during the Bird Box scoring sessions from Academy Award winners Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross. Over two hours of music completed in various hotel rooms before and after Nine Inch Nails’ 2018 Cold, Black & Infinite US tour. The intense pace and pressures of nightly performances began to bleed through into the work. What started as a film score began to mutate and expand into something far beyond what you saw on the screen.
Halsey - Manic - Capitol
GRAMMY Award-nominated, multi-Platinum artist and alternative pop maverick Halsey returns with her third full-length album Manic featuring her 5x Platinum hit "Without Me" and "Graveyard." The success of "Without Me" has made Halsey the first and only female artist to have at least three songs chart on the Billboard Hot 100. It now ranks as the longest-running Billboard Hot 100 top 10 hit by a female artist of this century.
Little Big Town - Nightfall - Capitol Nashville
Grammy Award-winning vocal group Little Big Town announce the release of their ninth studio album Nightfall, and accompanying headline tour, The Nightfall Tour. The foursomes’ new album will drop January 17, succeeding a once-in-a-lifetime performance at the historic Carnegie Hall in New York City on January 16. This is the first mainstream country performance featured at Carnegie Hall since Alan Jackson in 2013. The tour will continue the following two nights at The Apollo and will proceed all spring in over 30 of the most prestigious theaters in the country, closing with two nights at Denver’s art deco gem, The Paramount. Every show excluding Carnegie Hall will feature critically acclaimed singer-songwriter Caitlyn Smith.
