New Music Releases: June 19, 2012
It’s Tuesday, which means that new music is being released today. Here’s a look at some of the more notable albums that are coming out today.
Believe (Justin Bieber). This is probably one of the most anticipated albums coming out this week since Bieber has such a strong fan base but, also, because his single “Boyfriend” has a much more mature sound (making some people curious about what the rest of this album sounds like) and he’s done a great job promoting it through social media and live appearances.
Oceania (Smashing Pumpkins). Could it be? Are the Smashing Pumpkins really releasing a new album? Yes! Fans are excited about the band’s seventh studio effort which is being described as an “album within an album” and will be part of the mammoth 44-song Teargarden by Kaleidyscope.
Welcome to the Fishbowl (Kenny Chesney). The country superstar has sold more than 30 million albums and hopes to replicate that success with his 13th studio effort which will be his first release since his 2010 album, Hemingway’s Whiskey, which was certified platinum,
The Idler Wheel Is Wiser Than the Driver of the Screw and Whipping Cords Will Serve You More Than Ropes Will Ever Do (Fiona Apple). Yes, that is the very long name of her album but, presumably, after seven years of absence, Fiona Apple probably has a lot to say. The singer had secretly been working on the tracks since 2008 and surprised her label, Epic Records, by handing them a finished copy.
Game of Thrones: Season Two (Ramin Djawadi). Honestly, anyone who has watched HBO’s hit, Game of Thrones, has probably experienced the difficulty of getting the theme song out of their head. The music is haunting, emotionally charged and, often, surprising in the timing and arrangement. Definitely worth a listen.
Brave: Movie Soundtrack (Various Artists). The Disney/Pixar film, Brave, is sure to be a film that many children (and adults) check out this summer (they even watched it on last night’s episode of The Bachelorette) and, for those times in the car when you really need to give the younger passengers a distractions, this might be the perfect choice. The movie is set in the Highlands of Scotland and, as a result, the soundtrack includes music that represents the area including two original songs performed by Gaelic singer, Julie Fowlis.
