Officially back: No Doubt

Life’s good. Gwen Stefani and her longtime pals have released ‘Settle Down‘, the lead single taken from their upcoming comeback album ‘Push&Shove‘ which is slated for a September release. The cut sounds fresh and energetic. Just not like the trash you’re offered by recent chart toppers (no specific hints). Different but still No Doubt. Feels good to have ’em back!
Roll on September!

The XX – Angels

Say hello to ‘Angels‘, the official first single off of the XX’s sophomore effort ‘Coexist‘. The album will hit stores early September. ‘Angels’ seems to be all Romy Madley Croft’s cause she takes control of the whole thing with her angelic (ha!) voice. Nevertheless, it’s the entire band that delivers (as usual).
A nice way to start into the week. 

 

Frank Ocean releases ‘Channel Orange’

Last night “Team Ocean” surprisingly released the long-awaited debut album of America’s new favourite R’n’B maestro.
Best known for his appearences on last year’s epic “Watch the Throne” and his lyrical work for fellow artists Beyoncé, Brandy and more, he’s now ready to dominate charts all by himself.

Get familiar with the album’s first single “Pyramids” in case you haven’t heard the outstanding track yet.

In addition to that, you can also watch his performance of one of the album’s highlights “Bad Religion” when he took his game to Jimmy Fallon last night.

Welcome back…

P!NK

Today saw the probably unintentional release of Blow Me (One Last Kiss) – P!nk’s brand new single which is lifted from her forthcoming 6th studio album. Not feelin’ the Greg Kurstin-produced track yet, but we’ll see how massive media impact will change my mind sooner or later.

Et voilà:
