New Music Releases for 2018 & what we hear in 2018

GettyImages-521073344-920x584

As Christmas approaches, so album releases for this year are slowing down to the bare minimum of festive themed records, greatest hits collections and the odd big name record. Just because the music world is taking a little break doesn’t mean there’s nothing to get excited about, though. Next year already looks set to be embarrassingly good, quite frankly, with some major new releases already on the cards. Let us guide you through some of the biggest and most exciting albums confirmed, expected or just anticipated to be gifted to us in 2018.

When’s it out? TBA
What’s on it? Nothing has been confirmed at present.
What has he said about it? “It’s good gardening music or roofing music or, you know, back-alley stabbing music. I’m trying to think of some good activities that people haven’t written songs for yet.”

 

When’s it out? April 6
What’s on it? “Widescreen melancholia”, apparently.
What have they said about it? A statement accompanying the record’s announcement said: “The main themes of ‘Resistance is Futile’ are memory and loss; forgotten history; confused reality and art as a hiding place and inspiration. It’s obsessively melodic – in many ways referencing both the naive energy of ‘Generation Terrorists’ and the orchestral sweep of ‘Everything Must Go’.”

 

When’s it out? TBA
What’s on it? We’d expect massive single ‘Boys’ to be on there, but the tracklist is still under wraps.
What has she said about it? “I’m not going to touch the album until two months before it’s going to come out, because if I started working on it again I would probably write another four albums.”

When’s it out? January 19
What’s on it? The Britney Spears-referencing ‘Young And Menace’, and the electro-rock of ‘Champion’.
What have they said about it? “Sonically, we are sewing multiple eras of – both our own band and own influences – together in a way that is completely new to us through both the production and writing process.” – Pete Wentz

When’s it out? TBA
What’s on it? The band have yet to confirm any details, but they’ve been playing three new songs live of late – ‘Kindness Is The New Rock’n’Roll’, ‘When You Were Young’ and ‘Mental Head’.
What have they said about it? “It’s definitely like no record I’ve heard before. It doesn’t sound like anything that I can put my finger on – which is a good thing but it’s a scary thing as well.” – Harry Koisser

When’s it out? TBA
What’s on it? There are no precise details confirmed, but the band have said it will likely be seven or eight tracks, and clock in at 40 minutes.
What have they said about it? “In some respects, some of it is a bit straightforward. The MBV album that we did in 2013 feels more meandery and not as concise. This one is like if somebody took that and dropped some acid on it or created a dimensional clash or something. It’s more all over the place… The record I am making now is not so much about death and change as freedom of the soul.” – Kevin Shields

When’s it out? January 26
What’s on it? Collaborations with Bastille, AJ Tracey and Kaytranada, amongst others.
What has he said about it? “These songs feel like they’ll stand the test of time.”

 

When’s it out? TBA
What’s on it? “Quite a cast characters”, according to frontman Ezra Koenig.
What have they said about it? “I wanted to do something that at least has elements of spring time you know because life has to keep going.” – Ezra Koenig

 

When’s it out? TBA
What’s on it? Collaborations with The Weeknd and Travis Scott, plus singles ‘Cold Water’, ‘Believer’, ‘Run Up’ and ‘Know No Better’.
What have they said about it? Not a whole lot.

When’s it out? Early 2018
What’s on it? No details as yet, but expect a first single before 2017 is out.
What have they said about it? Not much, besides confirming it’s on the way.

Taylor Swift album ‘reputation’ lands on Spotify and Apple Music

Taylor-Swift-reputation-ART-2017-billboard-1548

Three weeks after hitting iTunes, Taylor Swift’s new album Reputation is starting to roll out on Apple Music and Spotify.

Fans first spotted the record on the sites in Australia and the Phillipines, and it is now available to stream in the UK.

Previously the pop star’s sixth album was only available as a digital download or as a physical copy. Swift announced via her Instagram that it would be available on all streaming services from midnight on 1 December.

Despite the decision to temporarily keep it off streaming services, reputation quickly became the biggest first-week sales of 2017, shifting more than 1.2 million copies in the US.

The move is a less drastic version of the one made by Adele‘s team when she released her album 25, which was not available on streaming services until seven months after its initial release.

Swift’s album was recently listed on The Independent‘s top 30 of the year. It was praised for producer Jack Antonoff’s work, along with Swift’s songwriting skills and “one of [her] greatest talents… to encapsulate those small moments, often in a new relationship, that you as a listener cannot”.

Major Lazer documentary ‘Give Me Future’ coming exclusively to Apple Music next month

As it continues to expand original content efforts, Apple Music has secured the rights to an upcoming documentary about electronic music trio Major Lazer. The film depicts the process of organizing the first Cuban-American concert in Havana and is entitled Give Me Future.

give_me_future_sundance_still_1_-_publicity_-_h_2017

The film starts shortly after President Obama announced that the “United States of America is changing its relationship with the people of Cuba. And begin a new chapter among the nations of the Americas.”

After President Obama made that announcement, Major Lazer’s Diplo, Jillionaire, and Walshy Fire set out to organize the first Cuban-American concert in Havana. The the three are followed as they setup the concert, meeting with local Cuban artists and planning the intricacies.

In conjunction with the documentary, Major Lazer also announced a new album called “Major Lazer Presents: Give Me Future – Music From and Inspired by the Film.” The album features unreleased Diplo work, including songs recorded with Cuban artists during the making of this documentary.

Give Me Future debuted at the Sunset Film Festival earlier this year and will be available on Apple Music on November 17th. Will you be watching? Let us know down in the comments!

Here’s the trailer and description of the documentary:

In March 2016, following the restoration of diplomatic relations between Cuba and the United States, electronic dance music trio Major Lazer made history, becoming one of the first major American acts to play in the communist state. Unsure how their descent on Havana would be received and hoping to reach a few tens of thousands, the epic concert unexpectedly drew in close to half a million fans.

Much more than a garden variety music film, “Give Me Future” begins as a behind-the-scenes look at the historic concert and evolves into a masterful exploration of Cuba’s inspirational youth movement and its ingenious DIY information culture.

Capturing exhilarating performance footage and authentic stories highlighting the country’s cultural growth and desire for inclusion in the global community, director Austin Peters conjures a transcendent, rhythm-laced depiction of the powerful catalysts driving a country on the brink of change.

Ahead Of Tomorrow’s iPhone 8 Announcement, Apple Music Finally Gains Traction With iOS Users

September 12 is expected to bring us the latest iPhone; for those of us who use them it is difficult to recall a time without one. While the iPhone celebrates its tenth birthday in style, Apple Music is making strides among iOS users. Apple Music is the most popular paid music subscription service among iOS users.

During the first six months of 2017, one in five iOS users listened to Apple Music (21 percent), up from 13 percent in the first six months of 2016. Apple Music edged out Spotify Premium for the title of most used, although both saw significant listener gains in 2017. Both services are benefitting from the overall growth in paid music subscribers in the US.

Spotify Premium still dominates the chart for share of listening among iOS users. Spotify users on the iOS platform spend 40 percent more time listening to music. Apple Music comes in a respectable second.

More iOS users are listening to Apple Music, but engagement with Spotify Premium is stronger. Apple Music has an opportunity to improve usage those new listeners, and surely the new iPhone will help.

Students spends less for Amazon Music Unlimited than ever

Amazon-Music-Unlimited-796x398

Sigh, it’s that time of the year again. Despacito may still be atop the charts, but summer is dwindling, meaning it’s time to head back to school. But, don’t cut short your soundtrack just yet, because this is the ideal time to get ad-free music on a streaming service. All the students out there already get a nice discount on Apple Music and Spotify, and now you can add Amazon Music Unlimited to that list too.

The online retail giant is offering up its relatively new music streaming service to all the young folk for just $4.99/£4.99 per month. That brings it in line with its bigger rivals, price-wise at least. It also means you fork out less than Amazon Prime subscribers ($7.99/£7.99 per month) and non-Prime customers ($9.99/£9.99). And, if you’re eligible to be a Prime Student member, it will go down to just $6/£6 for six months — that’s just one dollar or pound a month for the period.

Amazon already offers a family plan, which at $149/£149 per year is appealing for Prime subscribers. And reaching out to students is another way to expand its base. But, simply matching Apple and Spotify’s offers may not be enough — particularly in the face of the exclusives and addictive playlists its competitors have in their arsenals. Still, Amazon’s service only launched in October, so it will have to play catch-up for the time being.

Along with the deal, Amazon’s also offering up tips on how students can use Alexa’s voice controls for music. Looking to focus on your homework? Ask “Alexa, play classical music for studying,” or “Alexa, play pop music for focusing.” Need a loud ditty to rattle you out of bed in the morning? Just ask, “Alexa, play wake up music.” And, if you can’t remember the name of a song, just prompt Alexa with its lyrics, or the artist’s name. While you’re at it, be sure to skip Despacito. All the cool kids are over that one.
