The Killers, The Horrors, Van Morrison and Enter Shikari are among the artists with new albums out this week.
The Killers - Wonderful Wonderful
It’s been five years since The Killers released their fourth album Battle Born, years they’ve filled with solo projects, Greatest Hits collections, lengthy tours and long breaks, but now they’re back with new LP Wonderful Wonderful.
Produced by Jacknife Lee with contributions from Stuart Price, Brian Eno and Mark Knopfler as well as super songwriter Ryan Tedder, the album sees the band embrace widescreen electronics and thundering guitars.
The album features hit single ‘The Man’ as well as new jam ‘Run For Cover’.
The Horrors - V
The much-acclaimed fivesome have teamed up with Adele/Bloc Party producer Paul Epworth for their fifth full-length effort.
The LP is the follow-up to 2014’s Luminous and sees the band embrace electronics and jarring guitars in a big way.
Enter Shikari - The Spark
After vastly expanding their horizons on 2015’s The Mindsweep, the St Albans noiseniks have embraced a poppier sound on their new effort.
Recorded with Bat For Lashes/Everything Everything producer David Kosten, the album features 11 tracks, including the excellently titled 'An Ode To Lost Jigsaw Pieces’ (in two movements)' and the irony-clad 'Take My Country Back'.
Fergie - Double Duchess
