I was never a big Weezer fan (shame on me) - but the new record "Everything Will Be Alright In the End" sounds very promising. Cleopatra is the first single - listen here:
The record will be out October 3, 2014.
Minnie Driver - Ask Me To Dance
The third album of Minnie Driver - which is well-known as an actress, but not as much as musician is a collection of cover songs. The lead single is Waltz #2 from Elliott Smith, which is (depending on your point of view) either courageous or very risky. Well, I like the result.
Ask Me To Dance will be out October 7, 2014.
Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness
I mentioned Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness before - it's definitely a record to look forward to.
Street date: October 10, 2014.
Queen - Queen Forever
Again, I wrote about the record before:
Queen Forever is just a compilation - but a compilation with three new Queen songs.
The first full new Queen song with Freddie Mercury on vocals since Made in Heaven from 1995 (!) called "Let Me In Your Heart Again" is from The Works era (which was circa 1984).
Street date: October 11, 2014
Herbert Grönemeyer - Dauernd jetzt
A German artist in here? And he sings in German?
Well, maybe you should give Herbert Grönemeyer a chance - since he recorded Mensch, the best-selling German album of all time (about 4 million copies). In the past 30 years every record of him was number one in Germany.
His 14th (!) record Dauernd Jetzt will be out October 21, 2014
Two of his most famous songs are here:
Taylor Locke - Time Stands Still
Taylor Locke, known from Rooney and Taylor Locke & The Roughs is working on his first straight solo record. It will be called Time Stands Still.
Songs that were already streamed at soundcloud for a limited time are Time Stands Still, No Dice, Running Away From Love and Call Me Kuchu.
She & Him - Classics
The fifth album of Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward will consist of “carefully-selected, timeless standards”.
Most of the arrangements on Classics are handled by a full 20-piece orchestra.
Deschanel explains: “We are incredibly excited to release a record of our favorite songs. It was a dream of ours to record these songs in a way that highlighted the brilliance of the songwriting and the beauty of their melodies. We had a wonderful time making the record and we hope people have a wonderful time listening to it.”
Release: Autumn 2014
Guster - TBA
Another crowd funding campaign is on: the new record of Guster. Read all about it HERE!
The first song is called "Long Night":
