New Music Friday: 31/03/2017

It’s Friday once again, and that means that it’s time for some new music releases. Let’s take a look at some of the big releases this week in more detail:

Goldfrapp – Silver Eye


This is probably the album that I am most excited to hear this week, only because I have been raving about it for so long now. As you know, I saw Goldfrapp live last week and this is their brand new album and their first since 2013’s “Tales Of Us”. This album marks a grand return back to their electro roots and despite hearing a few tracks from it live, I cannot wait to hear the studio versions and add this album to my library and music playlists to take with me wherever I go. Their latest single “Anymore” has been out since January and I am hoping that you have all heard it after I raved about it in my recent blogs. Instead of posting the video from that song, why not check out this great song taken from the album instead? I am personally hoping that this will be the second single…

Nelly Furtado – The Ride


Nelly Furtado also returns with a brand new LP this week, and this is another album that I am very excited to hear in full. There have been a few tracks released in the lead up to this album’s release, if you have pledged for the album on Pledgemusic that is. I have always been a fan of Nelly Furtado and I think she has unfortunately been under-rated in the last few years with her material. I think the long break between her most successful album “Loose” until the follow-up “The Spirit Incredible” was released (6 years!) really harmed her career, but I am hoping that this album gets her back on form. Here is “Pipe Dreams”, taken from the new album…

Jennifer Paige – Starflower


Jennifer Paige, remember her? She had a “Crush” back in 1998 and since then has been lost in the wilderness. Jennifer is also making a big return to music with her latest album “Starflower” which at time of writing, is due out today. I am excited to hear this album, as I think she is embracing electro music with this album and you know I love my electro music. Not much else is known about this album or what to expect but I am excited to hear it and cannot wait to press play when it’s released. Here is her latest single, lifted from the new album…

So just a final note, I will not be continuing with this series of blogs after all after this week. I will continue to write about new music but on Talk About Pop Music instead. The reason for this is that I want to try and keep this blog personal rather than being about music, I will be continuing with both my Flix of the Month and Music of the Month blogs though as per the usual but the New Music Friday blogs will cease going forward.

Saying that though, please look out for my reviews of new music on Talk About Pop Music and don’t forget to subscribe as well so that you can keep up to date with lots of pop music gossip and news! Thanks for your understanding.
