Bob Seger, Ride Out. New album from the veteran rocker. ''I feel really good about this record,'' says Seger. ''This album touches on how I think a lot of us feel about finding our place in a more complicated world - from how we appreciate things as simple and pure as love, to navigating through the corruption and violence that permeates the news. It sums up a lot of feelings I have about a variety of subjects.'' Produced by Seger, the collection stays true to his legendary sound as he effortlessly marries rock, blues and country, yielding an album with all the hallmarks of the rocker’s deep catalog of hits. Ride Out is Seger’s first studio album since his 2006 platinum-certified Face the Promise and follows his 2011 platinum-certified release, Ultimate Hits: Rock and Roll Never Forgets.
U2, Songs of Innocence. The new album from the Irish quartet. Songs of Innocence is U2’s most personal work to date, charting the band’s earliest influences from 70s rock and punk rock to early 80s electronica and ambient music and giving insight into how and why the band came together. The album deals with themes of home and family, relationships and discovery and was recorded in Dublin, London, New York and Los Angeles and is produced by Danger Mouse, along with Paul Epworth, Ryan Tedder, Declan Gaffney and Flood.
you+me: roseave. The debut album from this musical project featuring Pop superstar P!NK (AKA Alecia Moore) and Dallas Green (AKA City and Colour). While Pink may be a universal superstar, Green has received critical praise worldwide, selling out arena tours and some of the most prestigious venues across the globe. He has released four studio albums, all of which achieved platinum status in Canada.
Keep Me In Your Heart For Awhile: The Best of Madeline Peyroux. A collection from the critically-adored singer. Keep Me In Your Heart For Awhile: The Best of Madeline Peyroux is the very first compilation release in the singer/songwriter's 18-year career, including favorites not only from her Rounder catalog, but also tracks from her Atlantic and Decca/ Emarcy catalogs. Additionally, the album will include one previously unreleased song-- here version of Warren Zevon's 'Keep Me In Your Heart' which appeared in 2011's independent film Union Square. Liner notes by former Atlantic Records A&R man, Yves Beauvais, complete the package.
Trigger Hippy. Debut from band featuring Joan Osborne, Steve Gorman (best known for his work the Black Crowes), Jackie Greene (Black Crowes, Phil Lesh & Friends, Gov’t Mule, Los Lobos, Taj Mahal, Susan Tedeschi), Tom Bukovac, and Nick Govrik. The Nashville-based quintet's debut album draws on the strengths of all five, both individually and collectively, and showcases influences and inspiration from Memphis soul to rock, country and blues. One can sense The Band here, and Little Feat, some Led Zeppelin, and a tent revival; a full palette. Gorman rightly calls it a "rock band that can jam.''
