This Week's New Albums: March 24th 2017
Take That, Creeper, Steel Panther and The Jesus & Mary Chain are among the artists with new albums out this week.
Take That - Wonderland
The all-conquering boyband release their second album as trio.
The album sees the band working with a series of high-profile producers, including Mark Ralph, key producer of Rag'n'Bone Man and Years & Years, Tony Hoffer, best known for his work with Beck and The Kooks, Stuart Price, who has worked with Madonna and The Killers, and Mark Crossey, producer of both albums from The 1975.
The Jesus and Mary Chain - Damage and Joy
Even though the band lasted for 16 years it always felt like Scottish psychedelic upstarts The Jesus and Mary Chain were barely holding it together. Their gigs were always chaotic affairs, usually lasting less than half an hour and often ending in the band physically assaulting each other.
Eventually, it all tumbled to an end in 1999, but the band have reformed since then and enjoyed success taking their old hits out on the road.
This week we get the first new album from the band since 1998’s Munki, an album that sees them working with Killing Joke’s Youth on production.
