Every Friday new music is released and we make lots and lots of it available for you to listen to immediately. Check out the top picks from this past Friday:
- Unbreakable by Janet Jackson
Contemporary R&B. A clean-cut and satisfying return after a seven-year absence, created with Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis.
- New Bermuda by Deafheaven
Black Metal. Deafheaven follow up their triumphant breakthrough album Sunbather with a bleak yet ultimately uplifting third full-length.
- Stories by Avicii
EDM. The Swedish DJ's second genre-blending effort gets everything right with guests like Zac Brown, Wyclef Jean, Matisyahu, and Martin Garrix in support.
- Fast Forward by Joe Jackson
Contemporary Pop/Rock. The gifted pop songwriter hops from New York and New Orleans to Amsterdam and Berlin on his first studio set since 2008.
- Silence In The Snow (Special Edition) by Trivium
Hard Rock/Metal. Trivium haven't made the same album twice since 2003's Vengeance Falls. In keeping with their own tradition, they tossed out plenty to reinvent themselves here. Trivium are using the building blocks of metal to pursue a wider, more nuanced, musical direction.
- Pipes of Peace [Special Edition] by Paul McCartney
Album Rock. The 2015 reissue of the 1983 album contains a disc of demos, rarities, B-sides, and outtakes.
- This Is War by Emily Kinney
Alternative Singer/Songwriter. A year after exiting The Walking Dead, the singer/songwriter/actress issues unapologetically chirpy, charming, love-is-war indie pop.
- Kill the Flaw by Sevendust
Alternative Metal. Largely written in the studio, Kill the Flaw finds the bandmembers reconnecting with their roots while performing with the aplomb of veterans.
- Creeps by Indian Handcrafts
Heavy Metal. Picking up where they left off, the Barrie Ontaro power duo deliver another serving of prime sludge with a couple of twists.
- Show Me Your Fangs by Matt Nathanson
Adult Alternative Pop/Rock. An exuberant album that balances Nathanson's longstanding knack for emotive acoustic balladry with sophisticated, R&B-influenced production.
