New Music Friday is the new release fix you need! We’ve been listening to Arcade Fire, Alice Cooper, Manchester Orchestra and more.
What’s even better about New Music Friday is that you can listen to a lot of the new music live. We’ve also found a few artists who’ve got new records out and are about to take them on tour. Double win!
RELEASE OF THE WEEK: Brett Eldredge – Brett Eldredge
We kick of New Music Friday with a bit of good ol’ country music. Brett Eldredge‘s self titled fourth studio album features him co-writing all twelve tracks. He experiments with new sounds on the record like the poppy Superhero, which also features a heavy rock-infused chorus. While we wait for Brett to return to the UK you can check out all of the great country tours coming your way on our Country Guide.
Dan Wilson – Re-Covered
Formerly of Trip Shakespeare and Semisonic, the Minnesota-born Dan Wilson has written some of the biggest tunes you know (remember Adele’s Someone Like You or The Dixie Chicks’ Not Ready To Make Nice? – yeah he helped write those). Re-Covered sees Dan reinterpret those songs co-produced by Mike Viola. [Buy the record]
Mystery Skulls – One Of Us
Los Angeles-based indie-pop act Mystery Skulls deliver the follow-up to their debut record with One Of Us. The concept album features darker themes to 2014’s Forever but retains the open-hearted dance-floor-filling sound.
Third Day – Revival
Revival is Christian rock band Third Day‘s thirteenth studio album and sees them returning to their southern rock roots. The four piece are celebrating 25 years together in 2017 and finally got to tick something off their bucket list: recording an album at the legendary Fame Studios in Alabama.
DJ REZZ – Mass Manipulation
Canadian producer and DJ DJ REZZ releases her latest project Mass Manipulation today. Her previous releases caught the attention of legendary DJs Skrillex and deadmau5 and so it’s no surprise that with her bass-heavy and minimal-tech compositions, deadmau5’s label has taken on the record.

Check back next Friday for more new releases.
