We’re now a few days into April, and with a new month comes a whole host of new music for us to sit back and enjoy. With so many big album releases this April however, we’ve decided to pick five of our favourites that we can’t wait to hear. Here are 5 Albums You Should Be Listening To This April…
5. Father John Misty – ‘Pure Comedy’ (Out April 7)
With one of the most distinct and unique voices of the modern day, Father John Misty returns with his brand new record ‘Pure Comedy’, showcasing his brilliance and evolution as an artist over the past few years. Currently sitting with an incredible score of 92% on reviews aggregate website MetaCritic, there are just a few days to go until release. We’re predicting big things for this LP.
4. The Chainsmokers – ‘Memories: Do Not Open’ (Out April 7)
It’s hard to believe that ‘Memories: Do Not Open’ is The Chainsmokers’ debut LP. Scheduled for release later this week, the record has seen some great supper, with Chris Martin of Coldplay fame tweeting about the album and lead single ‘Paris’ already storming the charts in countries across the globe.
3. Texas – ‘Jump On Board’ (Out April 21)
Having toured the UK throughout April and May in 2015, Texas were working on brand new material which will appear on upcoming album ‘Jump On Board’, and now it’s nearly time for the group to release that very record! We can’t wait to see what the iconic group have up their sleeves this time round.
2. Sheryl Crow – ‘Be Myself’ (Out April 21)
As her ninth studio album, ‘Be Myself’ is almost ready for release and has been described by Sheryl Crow herself as a return to the sound of her earlier 90s work. Showing the country-influenced sound of the records that have been dotted throughout her careers, it will serve as the platform for even more new material, with Crow currently working on an album of duets with talent including but not limited to Stevie Nicks, Willie Nelson and Keith Richards.
1. Gorillaz – ‘Humanz’ (Out April 28)
In just under a month, Gorillaz will finally return with a brand new studio album of all-new material, with the first slice of that record already released. Loosely inspired by Donald Trump, the LP isn’t overtly a political album, but was created in part thanks to the political climate. Damon Albarn said to BBC Radio 1 that it’s called ‘Humanz’ with a ‘z’, because the race is in transition: “We’re turning into something else.”
