This Week's New Albums: July 7th 2017
Haim, Lucy Rose, Public Service Broadcasting and Broken Social Scene are among the artists with new albums out this week.
Haim - Something To Tell You
It’s taken Este, Danielle and Alanna four years and a series of cancelled tours to follow-up their hugely successful debut album Days Are Gone, but we finally get to hear what they’ve been up to next this week.
The trio have worked with Sky Ferreira/Carly Rae Jepsen man Ariel Rechtshaid and Grimes collaborator Bloodpop on the album, which was recorded in their native California.
The album features new single ‘Want You Back’ as well as the previously revealed ‘Right Now’.
Public Service Broadcasting - Every Valley
Play It Again Sam
The experimentalists are three albums in now, but their sense of adventure remains undaunted.
Their new LP is the story of the mining industry in Wales, more specifically chronicling the rise and decline of the country's coal industry.
It features guest appearances from Manic Street Preachers’ mainman James Dean Bradfield and Welsh singers Lisa Jen Brown and Tracyanne Campbell.
Lucy Rose - Something's Changing
For her third studio album, the singer-songwriter has departed Columbia Records and joined Communion, home of Bear’s Den, Catfish and the Bottlemen and Dan Croll.
Recorded down in Brighton with Kate Walsh/Fink man Tim Bidwell, Rose has co-opted Daughter’s Elena Tonra and The Staves to help her out as well as members of Bear’s Den and Matthew and the Atlas.
The album sees Rose ditch the electronic stylings of her previous effort Work It Out and embrace the stripped down sonics of 70’s folk.
Various Artists - Big Little Lies OST
Tracks from Michael Kiwanuka, Villagers, Leon Bridges and more feature on the soundtrack to HBO's hit domestic drama.
Riverdogs - California
The hard rock supergroup, who count Def Leppard's Vivian Campbell among their members, unveil their first new studio album in six years.
Jay-Z - 4:44
The all-conquering rapper returns with his 13th studio album and first since 2013's Magna Carta Holy Grail.
For 4:44, Jay-Z recruits Frank Ocean, Damian Marley, Beyoncé and his mother Gloria Carter for guest appearances, while No I.D is on production duties.
Melvins - A Walk With Love & Death
The sludgy icons return with a brand new album this week, a double album with one studio LP and the other disc a score to a short film.
Pixies' Joey Santiago and Le Butcherettes' Teri Gender Bender both guest on the album.
