This Week's New Albums: June 9th 2017
Katy Perry, London Grammar, Lindsey Buckingham and Christine McView and Rise Against are among the artists with new albums out this week.
Katy Perry - Witness
Virgin EMI Records
The superstar singer unveils the long-awaited follow-up to 2013's PRISM this week.
The album includes hit singles 'Bon Appetit', 'Swish Swish' and 'Chained To The Rhythm' and features guest appearances from Skip Marley, Migos and Nicki Minaj as well as songs written with Max Martin, Sia and Duke Dumont.
Lindsey Buckingham/Christine McVie - Lindsey Buckingham/Christine McVie
With Stevie Nicks currently on a lengthy world tour and not available to contribute to a new Fleetwood Mac album, Lindsey Buckingham and a back in the fold Christine McVie have teamed up to record an album of duets.
The album was recorded at The Village Studios in Los Angeles and also features Buckingham and McVie's bandmates Mick Fleetwood and John McVie on drums and bass, meaning only Nicks did not contribute to the album from Fleetwood Mac.
London Grammar - Truth Is a Beautiful Thing
Ministry of Sound
It’s been four years since the trio’s spellbinding debut If You Wait, but they make a welcome return this week with Truth Is A Beautiful Thing.
To help them get there they’ve teamed up with a series of super producers, including Paul Epworth, dance maestro Jon Hopkins and hotly tipped duo My Riot.
The album includes singles 'Rooting For You' and 'Big Picture', while the deluxe edition will include a cover of The Verve’s classic ‘Bittersweet Symphony’.
Rise Against - Wolves
Virgin EMI Records
The firebrand punks return to their angry roots with Wolves, the eighth full-length effort of their career.
For the follow-up to 2014’s The Black Market, the band have turned to Nick Raskulinecz, the producer best known for his work with Foo Fighters and Korn.
Louise Dearman - It's Time
Silva Screen Records
The musical theatre star offers up renditions of a series of classic songs, including tracks The Wiz, Funny Girl and Annie.
