Delta’ is a record of differing shades, colours and textures. It’s also a record that marks ten years since Mumford & Sons formed and draws on that shared experience of being on and off the road. It’s a moving collection of songs perhaps more intimate and expansive, both lyrically and musically, than ever before.
It’s also a tender listen, introspective and reflective but married with those ecstatic stadium-sized dynamics. It sounds like a career-defining body of work.
Right now, across the country, countless farmers, their families and rural Australians are facing some of the worst drought conditions seen in decades.
Beyond the crippling loss of livestock, crops and years of hard work, our rural communities are losing hope as they struggle to endure this severe crisis. While coastal and capital cities remain largely unaffected, regional Australia is bone dry. It is all of our responsibility to ensure that our regional and rural communities are supported as they work to survive some of the toughest conditions they'll ever have to face.
Little Mix have spent the last year writing and recording the album with an A-List cast of writers and producers, including Ed Sheeran, Camille Purcell, Jess Glynne, MNEK and Timbaland.
The collection is their strongest work to date, with the girls themselves describing it as “the album we always wanted to make”. Since 2011, Perrie Edwards, Jesy Nelson, Leigh-Anne Pinnock and Jade Thirlwall have not only established themselves as one of British pop’s brightest acts, but as a global pop phenomenon.
They have fully cemented their status as the world’s biggest girl band, with the quartet asserting dominance in the charts album after album. Little Mix have sold more than 45 million records worldwide and notched up a total of four UK No.1 singles, four platinum-selling albums and nine platinum selling singles, surpassing a record previously held by the Spice Girls.
The Greatest Showman – Reimagined sees songs from the film – all written by Grammy, Tony and Academy Award-winning duo Benj Pasek and Justin Paul (La La Land, Dear Evan Hansen) – covered by a remarkable cast of artists. The album is highlighted by a new version of the three-time U.S. platinum
smash, This Is Me, performed by Keala Settle, Kesha and the legendary Missy Elliott.
Other superstars contributing include Panic! At The Disco, P!nk (and her daughter, Willow Sage Hart), Kelly Clarkson, Sara Bareilles, Years & Years and Jess Glynne, MAX and Ty Dolla $ign, James Arthur and Anne-Marie, Zac Brown Band and more. As if that weren’t enough, the album will include four bonus tracks, performed by Pentatonix, Craig David, Kesha and Zendaya.
She’s back and just in time for Christmas. But don’t expect any Christmas songs in this collection because Mariah Carey is serving you pure reflective RNB vibes. ‘Caution’ hears the iconic singer-songwriter returning to her RNB roots and spilling the tea in this confessional collection of seductive tracks. She keeps it short and sweet with 10 songs that explore her very public break up and the process of moving on and picking up the pieces again. Album opener and lead single ‘GTFO’ is a sassy track dedicated to an ex-lover which tells them to, well, get the fuck out of her life. It’s a playful side that we haven’t heard from Mariah in a little while and is a welcomed return compared to her predictable previous singles. The relaxed production is very reminiscent to her early 90’s material and grows on you with each listen. From there she simmers down with a simple piano and slow beat accompaniment as she croons though a ballad about heart break, confusion and love.
Michael Buble Love CD
The Canadian singer-songwriter returned to the studio with a new perspective on life and a renewed commitment to honoring the music he has always loved.
“I didn’t anticipate returning to recording or performing and I was fine with that. My entire world view has changed completely these last few years. I wanted to spend all my time with my wife and kids. That was my focus. During that time, I also learned how much love and humanity is out in the world from the prayers and good wishes we received. But slowly, along with understanding what my priorities in life are, I began to feel a new commitment to express the emotions and lessons I’ve embraced. Whether I am the narrator, the observer, the main character, the dreamer, the broken hearted guy at a bar or having the night of a lifetime, I have stories to tell on this record. It’s all there in the songs. I have had so many blessings in life and one of them is that I hold the torch to keep these songs alive for generations to come. I take the responsibility very seriously. My end game for the new record was to create a series of short cinematic stories for each song I chose and have it stand on its own. I’m so proud of what we accomplished” commented Bublé.
The album features brand new Pentatonix arrangements of modern and classic seasonal favourites. Ahead of the album, Pentatonix have released their cover and arrangement of Danny Elfman’s ‘Making Christmas’ from Tim Burton’s The Nightmare Before Christmas. Special guest artists on the album to be announced soon.
Pentatonix has sold nearly 10 million albums in worldwide consumption and performed for hundreds of thousands of fans at their sold out shows across the globe. Their YouTube channel boasts more than 15.5 million subscribers, yielding over 3.4 billion video views. Their 2015 self-titled album is certified gold after debuting #1 on Billboard’s 200.
Evolution arrives in the wake of the group’s 2015 full-length Immortalized, which became their fifth consecutive #1 debut on the Billboard Top 200 and also debuted at #1 in Australia, earning the band a platinum certification in both the US and Australia, and yielded the double-platinum smash “The Sound of Silence.”
Evolution makes good on the promise of its title. Disturbed unwaveringly cling to the uncompromising spirit that solidified them as a history-making force, while boldly progressing at the same time.
WALLS is Streisand’s first album primarily consisting of original songs since 2005, and the first Barbra Streisand album to encompass a unified social theme. Led by the passionate plea, ‘Don’t Lie To Me,’ Streisand shares the guiding principles and values she has believed in, spoken about, and fought for her entire life.
WALLS finds Barbra exploring both her concerns and hopes for the future in a collection filled with beautiful melodies and thought-provoking lyrics. In addition to the three original tunes which the Oscar-winning songwriter contributed to, the songs on WALLS explore topics near to the celebrated artist’s heart. Streisand also brings a fresh perspective to the classic songs ‘Imagine’ and ‘What A Wonderful World,’ and the Bacharach/David pop standard ‘What The World Needs Now.’ The penultimate song that Streisand sings is a timely one called ‘Take Care Of This House’ by the legendary composer Leonard Bernstein and lyricist Alan Jay Lerner.
