We're back with another instalment of New Music Friday to celebrate our favourite new music that's been released this past month. So grab your headphones and immerse yourself in a whole array of new music from your favourite artists or even ones you've never heard of.
Check out our highlights below and grab tickets to hear the albums live!
Maggie Rogers - Surrender
Ever since being discovered when her song ‘Alaska’ was played to Pharrell Williams during a masterclass at New York University, Maggie Rogers’ path to success has been filled with praise from critics and fans. Last month she returned with her second studio album ‘Surrender’ and we can’t stop listening to it. The album sees her tackle big questions about life in a way that is more powerful than we have seen from her before, earning her impressive reviews from NME, Pitchfork and more. Some of the standout tracks for us are ‘That’s Where I Am’ and ‘Anywhere With You’. If you haven’t listened to this yet, then definitely chuck this on for your next road trip.
You can catch her live on tour this October & November at a city near you. Grab your tickets now.
Beyonce - Renaissance
If you haven’t heard about Beyonce’s latest album, where have you been? She has finally returned six years on from the iconic ‘Lemonade’ with an immaculate dance record which celebrates everything that dance, house and club music is about. On the album, the amalgamation of collaborators helped contribute to this variation in sounds and styles, including the likes of Honey Dijon, Nile Rodgers, The-Dream, Skrillex, Grace Jones, Tems and so many more. It is an album to whack on full blast whilst getting ready for a night out, listening to Bey sing confidently about individuality, sexuality, black joy and so much more.
Unfortunately she hasn't announced any UK tour dates just yet, but we put together a list of some other artists you can catch live if you're a fan of Beyonce here!
Jamie T - The Theory Of Whatever
The indie veteran returned with his first album in nearly six years, reminding us all why he’s one of Britain’s most beloved cult musicians from the mid to late 00’s. 15 years on from his 2007 debut ‘Panic Prevention’, his signature style of delivery that we know and love remains, but this is a distinctively new Jamie T. Rather than sticking to creating soundalikes to past songs, ‘his new attitude instead gives him room to try new things…free falling through styles and sounds, finding things that work’ NME said. Well, we absolutely love it and can’t stop binging it!
While his November 2022 tour is completely sold out, you can grab tickets to his biggest ever show at London’s Finsbury Park in June 2023! Grab yours now.
Pale Waves - Unwanted
The Manchester rock band are back with their highly anticipated third studio album 'Unwanted' and it was well worth the wait. Full of 'precise, catchy, well-executed, pop-punk ear worms' (Pitchfork), the album is an evolution from their synth heavy debut and instead embraces the 2000's pop punk which we've been hearing from the likes of Beabadoobee and Olivia Rodrigo. Yet, they continue with their unique experiments within other genres, evident on tracks like 'The Hard Way' where lead singer Heather Baron-Gracie tells a tragic story with an elegant vocal melody (NME), proving their musical capacity has no bounds.
You can catch them on tour this November in multiple cities across the UK! Grab your tickets now.
Kasabian - The Alchemist's Euphoria
The iconic indie rockers have returned with their seventh studio album 'The Alchemist's Euphoria', the first album release since Serge Pizzorno stepped up as the front man. The album boasts 'old school anthems aplenty' (NME) like 'ALYGATYR' and 'ROCKET FUEL' to some more emotional ballads, which results in an eclectic and intimate record ready to surprise its listeners, and we will be binging this all day long.
You won't want to miss catching this album live on tour this October and November. Tickets on sale now!
Panic! At The Disco - Viva Las Vengeance
Brendon Urie is looking back at the 70s on his latest offering as Panic! At The Disco, fuelled by the classic rock sounds of the 1970s, colourful riffing, and even some Freddie Mercury esque high notes (Evening Standard). It is a nostalgic look back which results in something hugely refreshing, redefining who Panic! At The Disco are as a solo venture. So grab your headphones, take a listen and see what you think!
You can hear the album live on tour in March 2023 - tickets on sale now!
Idle Hours - The Fourth Wall
Manchester four-piece Idle Hours have released their impressive debut EP ‘The Fourth Wall’ today. Full of uptempo tracks with heavy psychedelic riffs and lyrical and instrumental hooks that’ll stick inside your head all day. Our personal favourite is ‘Souvenirs’, a magnificently choppy guitar track that you should add to your listening rotation today.
