Latest new releases

We kick off our pick of 29 October’s releases with two recent albums out on vinyl this week: The Lockdown Sessions from Elton John and The The’s Comeback Special, now available as a triple LP on limited-edition clear vinyl. The War On Drugs are one of this century’s great rock-and-roll synthesists, and they do this better than ever on their fifth studio album, I Don’t Live Here Anymore – an uncommon rock album about resilience in the face of despair. Award-winning blues-rock titan Joe Bonamassa is at his most ambitious and diverse yet on Time Clocks as he continues to redefine and push the barriers of blues-rock, mixing in a new prog-rock flavour on the ten tracks here. The Path Of The Clouds is the most stylistically adventurous, lyrically transfixing and melodically sophisticated album yet from Marissa Nadler, blurring the line between reality and fantasy and moving freely between past and present over 11 deeply personal self-produced songs.

Our release of the week is The Million Things That Never Happened from Billy Bragg – who, like a fine wine, just keeps getting better with age and whose songs at their best present “the perfect Venn diagram between the political and the personal”, according to the Guardian.

We begin our best of 22 October’s releases with Sympathy For Life, which finds thought-provoking Brooklyn band Parquet Courts at their most instinctive and electronic, spinning their bewitching, psychedelic storytelling into fresh territory. Biffy Clyro’s surprise new project, The Myth Of The Happily Ever After, is a rapid emotional response to the turmoil of the past year – a before-and-after comparison, their optimism of early 2020 having been brought back to earth with a resounding thud but ultimately reinvigorating the band. My Morning Jacket’s first new music since 2015’s The Waterfall reaffirms the rarefied magic that has made this band so beloved, embedding every groove with moments of discovery, revelation, and ecstatic catharsis to make a thrillingly expansive release. Honest disclosure and being unapologetically herself has always been Self Esteem’s forte, and each track on Prioritise Pleasure handles difficult themes from a nuanced perspective, comforted and counter-balanced with an array of rhythmic flourishes that speak to the eclecticism of her experience and influence. Elton John had to pause his farewell tour due to the unfolding pandemic, but as the world began to shut down, opportunities for projects with artists Elton had met through his online show Rocket Hour appeared, and this was the beginning of one of Elton’s boldest and most interesting records to date, The Lockdown Sessions.

Our release of the week is Blue Banisters, the highly anticipated eighth studio album from Grammy-nominated American singer-songwriter Lana Del Rey. Blue Banisters follows the success of her previous album, Chemtrails Over The Country Club, released earlier this year, and features the songs ‘Blue Banisters’, ‘Wildflower Wildfire’ and ‘Text Book’.
