Most artists seem ready for the summer! They make haste to the many summer festivals or fly in their private jet to an exotic destination. No time left to write new songs nor to record in the studio!
But sometimes the workaholics confirm the rule!
For those nineties kids, Heather Nova is no stranger. The beauty from Bermuda celebrates turning 52 with a new album “Pearl”. The title hints at her breakthrough record “Oyster” from twenty-five years ago. Both albums were produced by Martin Glover (a.k.a. Youth), bassist of Killing Joke and colleague of Paul McCartney in The Fireman. Expect a lot of great guitar work.
Dan and Patrick from The Black Keys release their ninth album, entitled “Let’s Rock”. And that’s exactly what we’ll do all summer long.
July 19th, albums of Sabaton, Sum 41 ànd The Flaming Lips will see the daylight, so keep your earplugs within reach.
One week earlier Ed Sheeran will release a nice collection of surprising collaborations. The Ginger God met up with ‘Urban legends’ such as Khalid, Camila Cabello, Travis Scott, 50 Cent, Eminem, Young Thug, Meek Mill and Bruno Mars.
Foy Vance, who shot to fame as a support act to Ed, releases a bunch of new songs today, for those who are anxious to start off the weekend with brand new material.
By the end of next month, you can enjoy the fruits of the labor of Kaiser Chiefs and good old Lloyd Cole.
The month of August begins with the long-awaited debut album from Mabel, daughter of Neneh Cherry and stepsister of Marlon Roudette. If you take into account the fact that her grandpa was jazz legend Don Cherry and her dad has produced albums for Sugababes and Massive Attack, you understand why “High Expectations” is an appropriate title.
Her chart-topper “Don’t Call Me Up” is an equally appropriate way of letting you know that this blogger is doing a “Vamos la Playa” break.
But, EVERYBODY CALM DOWN! We will continuously be refreshing your drinks … er … music collection in July, so keep on rockin’ in a Tunify world!
