This Week's New Albums: November 10th 2017

Taylor Swift, Walk The Moon, Evanescence and The Corrs are among the artists with new albums out this week.

Reputation

Taylor Swift - Reputation

Big Machine

It’s been three years since Taylor Swift left her country-pop roots firmly behind in favour of the glossy pop of 1989 and now she’s taking it up a notch with new album Reputation.

The LP, which is the sixth of her career, sees Swift working with hitmaker supreme Max Martin and Bleachers’ Jack Antonoff and taking on a more confrontational style in her lyrics.

The album features hit singles ‘Look What You Made Me Do’ and ‘...Ready For It?’ as well as new cut ‘Gorgeous’.

Produced by Mike Crossey, best known for his work with The 1975, Regina Spektor regular Mike Elizondo and Captain Cuts, the producing arm of psych rockers Grouplove, the album is another mass of big melodies and even bigger choruses.
