This Week's New Albums: September 15th 2017
Foo Fighters, Prophets Of Rage, Gary Numan and Galantis are among the artists with new albums out this week.
Foo Fighters - Concrete and Gold
Dave Grohl and his ever-expanding troupe return with the follow-up to the band's 2014 album Sonic Highways.
Concrete And Gold is the band's ninth LP of their career and has been produced by Greg Kurstin, best known for his work with Lana Del Rey and Katy Perry.
The album features a guest appearance from Justin Timberlake as well as recording debut for keyboardist Rami Jaffee.
Prophets Of Rage - Prophets Of Rage
Rage Against The Machine can reunite for live shows, but when it comes to getting back together in the studio, it seems like frontman Zach De La Rocha is determined to leave Tom Morello, Tim Commerford and Brad Wilk to their own devices.
To scratch that particular creative itch, Morello, Commerford and Wilk have teamed up with Public Enemy’s Chuck D and DJ Lord as well as Cypress Hill’s B-Real for a brand new project.
Their debut melds Morello’s classic bouncy riffs with the steely-eyed rhymes of B-Real and Chuck D, while keeping the fiery politics in the band’s message.
Gary Numan - Savage (Songs from a Broken World)
BMG Rights Management
The electro-pop pioneer drops his 21st studio LP this week, a sequel to his 2013 album Splinter (Songs From A Broken Mind). The LP is a concept album centred around the blending of Western and Eastern cultures in a post-apocalyptic world that has become desertified as a result of global warming.
Arcane Roots - Melancholia Hymns
The rising prog trio finally follow-up 2013’s Blood And Chemistry this week.
Recorded with Jamie Lenman/A Plastic Rose producer Chris Coulter, the album sees the band’s taste for intricacy and huge widescreen melodies truly taken to extremes.
Michael McDonald - Wide Open
BMG Rights Management
The former Steely Dan and Doobie Brothers man returns this week with a brand new collection, his first for nine years.
Angus and Julia Stone - Snow
Pias Le Label
The Australian folk pop duo release their fourth studio LP, their first for three years.
