Boarding House Reach by Jack White
The former White Stripes man has always been a fan of old school recordings techniques, but he has taken things to extremes on his new album Boarding House Reach.
For this new album, White worked alone in a small apartment in Nashville, writing on a reel-to-reel tape recorder he purchased when he was 14, before eventually transferring recording sessions to Third Man Studio in Nashville, Sear Sound in New York City, and Capitol Studios in Los Angeles.
For this record, White has provided guitars, drums, organs, and synthesizers as well as most of the vocals, but does call upon guest spots from C.W. Stoneking and Autolux drummer Carla Azur.
Staying at Tamara's by George Ezra
It’s taken the singer-songwriter four years to provide a follow-up to his hugely successful debut album Wanted On Voyage, but it arrives next month.
Seeking inspiration of a different kind for his second LP, the album was written in a variety of locations across the globe, including a pig farm in Norfolk and an Airbnb in Barcelona. The Airbnb incidentally was owned by Tamara, who gives the album its name.
For this album, Ezra has worked once again with Athlete frontman Joel Pott and London Grammar/Florence And The Machine frequent collaborator Cam Blackwood for the production.
May Your Kindness Remain by Courtney Marie Andrews
The rising folk star and former touring member of Jimmy Eat World, releases her fourth full-length effort this week.
Over and Out by Rick Parfitt
The Status Quo guitarist's album gets a posthumous release this week.
Although Parfitt had finished recording his guitar and vocal parts for the record, some tracks were not totally finished when he died.
To finish the project, his son Rick Parfitt Jnr, along with John ‘Rhino’ Edwards, Alan Lancaster, Queen’s Brian May and Muse’s Chris Wolstenholme have stepped in.
Now That's What I Call Music! 99 by Various Artists
The latest edition of the compilation features 45 tracks across two discs, with 18 UK Top 10 singles included, though no Number 1s are included, partly due to Drake's track 'God's Plan' dominating that particular spot.
Big hits from Dua Lipa, Taylor Swift, Stormzy and Justin Timberlake do make the compilation though.
