Not just another post, but also another music related post, what’s going on?!
Earlier tonight I was watching ‘Friday Night with Jonathan Ross’ [yes I am fully aware that today is Saturday, thank you] and Keane were there to perform their new single ‘Spiralling’ which is surprisingly great and different and so very 80’s! And also out since August without me realising it or any of the more music oriented people in my life telling me about it. You have let me down!
Looking at the release schedules for the remainder of this year, the next months are looking to be excellent. There are many new albums coming out, some of which I have waited for a while. In order of release:
Oasis – Dig out your Soul – October 6th: I prefer Oasis’ earlier stuff, like Morning Glory or Definitely Maybe, but I have liked all their stuff so far. This album had three years of work on it and I’m hoping it’ll be good.
Keane – October 13th: Never really was their biggest fan, but I like some of the stuff they’ve done and I love what I’ve heard of the song Spiralling so far! It’s something different to all the more or less samey music in the recent years.
Kaiser Chiefs – Off with their heads – October 20th: Love, love, love their first album! I predict a riot, Na na na na na na, Modern Way, Everyday I love you less and less; they’re all great songs. It took a while until I got used to their second one, but it is also a very good album and I like Ruby a lot. I’m a bit worried that this is only coming out a year and a half after their second album, but I’m hopeful.
Dido – November 3rd: I cannot believe a new Dido album is coming out! I was under the impression she had quit her solo career or something! Glad to see she is back, looking forward to this a lot.
Razorlight – November 3rd: YES! Finally!
The Killers – November 24th: I wasn’t too convinced by their second album, Sams Town, but maybe this will be better, who knows.
Chris Cornell – Scream – November: And a new Chris Cornell album as well, although I’m not too sure if I am looking forward to that, even though the song Scream was pretty good. But I do like the album art!
There is also a new Royksopp studio album due at some point this year, but I couldn’t find the release date anywhere and their homepage is terrible.
And to come next year: Gorillaz, Lily Allen, Linkin Park, Muse, Nelly Furtado.
And I have also booked a ticket for next Thursday, 2nd of October to see Ludovico Einaudi, as mentioned in an earlier post. Looking forward to it!
