Mark Lanegan – Beehive

 

While we are waiting for the new album from Mark Lanegan (out literally in the next few days!), he has just shared with us “Beehive” – a sweet new single coming along with this “romantic” video. The song was composed together with Rob Marshall (Exit Calm) and it features guitar contributions from Greg Dulli (The Afghan Whigs).

The tenth Lanegan’s solo album, Gargoyle, will be released on 28th April. Waaaheeeey!

 

Slowdive – Star Roving

Slowdive is back! The band from Reading, England, have just unleashed their first new song in the 22 years, “Star Roving”. And a new album is on the way later this year through Dead Oceans. On their Facebook page, Slowdive wrote:

When the band decided to get back together in 2014 we really wanted to make new music. It’s taken us a whole load of shows and a few false starts to get to that point, but it’s with pride and a certain trepidation we unleash “Star Roving”. We really hope folks enjoy it, it’s part of a bunch of new tracks we’ve been working on and it feels as fun, and as relevant playing together now as it did when we first started. 

Slowdive split in 1995, shortly after releasing their last album, Pygmalion. They came back together in 2014 for a summer world tour, and in 2016 they announced they were working on a new album.

 

TAME IMPALA – Eventually

How nice of Tame Impala to share with us yet another track  before the full release of their third album, Currents! “Eventually” just confirms that there’s something big to wait for! Beautiful, psychedelic ballad which takes you to the mysterious, surreal and happy world of 70s. Majestic masterpiece!

 

Blur – There Are Too Many of Us

Oh, there they are! Blur, yes, Blur with their new, yes, new song! ‘There Are Too Many Of Us’ is the second released single off their upcoming, long, long-awaited album, The Magic Whip (out 27 April). Mild, tender, nearly metaphysical – sounds like the album will be a very nice step out of britpop into some space, alternative rock.

Thom Yorke – You Wouldn’t Like Me When I’m Angry

So, here comes Thom Yorke with a fantastic end-of-the-year present. Radiohead frontman shared a new single ‘Youwouldn’tlikemewhenI’mangry’ from his most recent album, Tomorrow’s Modern Boxes (releasing on Bandcamp via a pay-what-you-wish model). As we could easily expect, the song perfectly combines chilly electronic beats with dreamy, calm vocals, building the story up throughout. Genius!
