Latest new releases

There are plenty of exciting releases coming out in December. We start off with On Air, which showcases the early vibrancy of The Rolling Stones live, including eight performances not released officially before, and is arguably the Stones at their early, raw peak. U2 return with Songs Of Experience, a companion piece to 2014’s Songs Of Innocence, the two titles drawing inspiration from English poet William Blake’s ‘Songs of Innocence and Experience’. Neil Young responds to the current state of turmoil in the USA on The Visitor, on which his musical journey surprised even himself; the result is his most diverse album since Harvest in 1972, another time when America was in the throes of becoming unhinged. Neil Young didn’t blink then, and he isn’t blinking now. Dan Michaelson follows up last year’s critically acclaimed Memory with First Light (8 December), for which he wrote during each day’s first moment of consciousness before past, future, cynicism and memory come into focus; reflection on those moments informed the songs. Van Morrison’s new studio album, Versatile – his 38th – arrives less than three months after Roll With The Punches, and finds the Irish crooner shifting to from blues to jazz standards, interspersed once again with Morrison originals. In November 2015 the legendary New Order returned to play two nights at a sold-out Brixton Academy in support of their new album, Music Complete. The second of the two shows is now released as NOMC15. The Greatest Gift Mixtape (8 December) is a mixture of outtakes, remixes and demos from Sufjan Stevens’s 2015 album Carrie & Lowell, including four previously unreleased new songs, available on translucent yellow vinyl only.

Our album of the week is From ‘A’ Room: Vol. 2, which continues Chris Stapleton’s rise to becoming one of the true stars of modern American country music. Ridding himself of the tired old clichés that abound in that genre, Stapleton makes astonishing music grounded in country history but forever looking forward.

24 November brings 6 lovely recommendations for you. Who Built The Moon? is the eagerly anticipated new album from Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, two years in the making and featuring guest appearances from Paul Weller and Johnny Marr; inspired as much by French psychedelic pop as it was classic electro, soul, rock, disco and dance, it’s an “exhilarating collection of placid instrumentals, hypnotic, eastern-influenced grooves, gutsy balcony-shakers and widescreen, cinematic walls of sound”. Hello Sammy bears the marks of extensive musical expeditions far from Bella Hardy’s Peak District home; Bella returned from living and working in Nashville and Yunnan, South West China with a musical suitcase overflowing with new lyrical and musical ideas, the changes to her life flowing through every word and note of this accomplished and grown-up record. Squeeze return with a new album which manages to be both reassuringly familiar and intriguingly different: The Knowledge offers up another dozen examples of high-quality Chris Difford & Glenn Tilbrook song-craft. Samantha Fish delivers some of her most compelling music to date with her fifth studio album, Belle Of The West, a deeply soulful, personally charged 11-song set that showcases her sublime acoustic guitar skills as well as her rootsy, emotionally resonant songwriting. A Brand New Me pairs classic vocals from some of the most iconic songs that Queen of Soul Aretha Franklin recorded for Atlantic Records with new arrangements performed by The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra; the result is another timeless record that retains the soul, groove, and gospel power of Franklin’s revered talent.

Björk said of her ninth studio album, Utopia: “If we’re gonna survive not only my personal drama but also the sort of situation the world is in today, we’ve got to come up with a new plan. If we don’t have the dream, we’re just not gonna change. Especially now, this kind of dream is an emergency.” We’re not entirely sure what that means, but it’s Björk and that’s enough to make it our release of the week!
