This Week's New Albums: April 6th 2018
Kylie Minogue, 30 Seconds To Mars, Lisa Stansfield and Eels are among the artists with new albums out this week.
Kylie Minogue - Golden
BMG Rights Management
Last time we had a studio album from Kylie Minogue, she was getting all festive and duetting with James Corden, but things are quite different on new album Golden.
During the writing and recording of this album, Minogue has been working in Nashville and there is a distinct country influence on much of her new LP.
Among the writers and producers, the singer has worked for her new LP are Amy Wadge (she of co-writing ‘Thinking Out Loud’ fame), frequent Taylor Swift collaborator Nathan Chapman as well as rising dance producer Sky Adams.
The album also includes a duet with throaty troubadour Jack Savoretti.
Tom Misch - Geography
Beyond The Groove
22-year-old Tom Misch is an incredible proposition. A soulful multi-instrumentalist who brings together smooth R&B, hip-hop beats and gliding electronica.
His debut album, which is being released by his own label Beyond The Groove, arrives this week.
30 Seconds to Mars - America
The Jared Leto led trio return with their fifth studio album and their first new LP for five years.
Featuring hit singles 'Walk On Water' and 'Dangerous Night', the album sees the band teaming up with dance producers Zedd and Robopop, while A$AP Rocky and Halsey both guest on the album.
Various Artists - Revamp: Reimagining the Songs of Elton John & Bernie Taupin
Ed Sheeran, Florence + The Machine and Sam Smith are among the artists who have covered one of Elton John's classic tracks for this new compilation.
Titled ReVamp, the album sees 13 of the singer and long-time collaborator Bernie Taupin's tracks reworked by contemporary artists, with Alessia Cara, Coldplay, The Killers, Lady Gaga and Queens Of The Stone Age among the other artists included.
Eels - The Deconstruction
Mark Everett and his eccentric indie types return with their first new album in four years, an album made by Everett with longtime collaborators Koool G Murder, P-Boo, the Deconstruction Orchestra and Choir.
Various Artists - The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring - The Complete Recordings
Presented in a lavish new box set, the soundtrack to the beloved fantasy epic is re-released this week, with a Blu-ray that features a high-resolution 5.1 mix and stereo mix of the entire score.
Underoath - Erase Me

At The Disco/Sum 41 knob twiddler Matt Squire, it also marks the return of founding drummer and clean vocalist Aaron Gillespie since 2008's Lost in the Sound of Separation.
