This Week's New Albums: August 25th 2017
Queens Of The Stone Age, PVRIS, The War On Drugs and EMA are among the artists with new albums out this week.
Queens Of The Stone Age - Villains
2013’s ...Like Clockwork took Josh Homme and co into arenas and up to the top of festival bills and they’ve taken their time with a follow-up, but it arrives next month.
For new album Villains, they’ve teamed up with producer Mark Ronson and embraced retro sonics, for a stripped down aesthetic with groovy guitars right at its heart.
Villains is the band’s seventh full-length effort and includes new hit single ‘The Way You Used To’.
PVRIS - All We Know of Heaven, All We Need of Hell
After the huge success of their debut album White Noise, PVRIS return with a second full-length effort.
All We Know Of Heaven, All We Need Of Hell sees the band working with producer Blake Harnage once again and was recorded inside a converted church in upstate New York, making the band’s taste for the epic come to life in even more vivid detail.
The album includes hit single ‘Heaven’ and new cut ‘What’s Wrong’.
The War On Drugs - A Deeper Understanding
The Philadelphia psychedelic rockers wowed everyone with 2014’s Lost In The Dream and have taken their time coming up with a follow-up.
A Deeper Understanding is the band’s first for new label Atlantic Records and was recorded in studios in both New York and Los Angeles.
Shawn Everett, who has also worked with the likes of Alabama Shakes and Weezer, co-produced the album alongside the band's frontman Adam Granduciel.
Susanne Sundfør - Music for People in Trouble
Bella Union Records
The Norwegian songstress wowed everyone with 2015’s Ten Love Songs and returns now with a brand new collection.
Inspired by a trip the singer took across the world, she has talked up the album as her attempt to “try and mix up some innocent romantic sounds with something very industrial and dry sounds”.
John Grant guests on the album, lending his gruff vocals to the LP’s closer ‘Mountaineers’.
Fifth Harmony - Fifth Harmony
Now a foursome, the girl band team up with rapper Gucci Mane, Skrillex and frequent Justin Bieber collaborator Poo Bear for their new record.
Jonny Lang - Signs
The country bluesman comes roaring with a new LP this week.
