More music news: new/upcoming releases

I am currently listening to & very much enjoying a (pre-release) copy of the much anticipated Goldfrapp album "Head First", whose lead single "Rocket" has had me grooving on it's 80's Xanadu vibe for weeks!(listen to the Penguin Prison Remix of "Rocket" on the left of this page under the search function)  The album officially gets dropped next Tuesday, March 23rd

File under "It's about fucking time!" Sarah McLachlan has finally announced her first new release of all new material in over 7 years!  " The Laws Of Illusion"  will be released on June 15th

Also looking forward to the new LCD Soundsystem (as yet to be titled) album which according to the bands website will be released this May, although no official date has been set.

Natalie Merchant also breaks her nearly decade long silence with her 2-disc Nonesuch Records debut titled "Leave Your Sleep" on April 13th
Says the former 10,000 Maniacs singer"This album captures so many magical moments, the best times I've ever had as a musician"  She's adapted 19th and 20th century British and American poetry - well-known and obscure works, anonymous rhymes, children's lullabies, all of it's hoping!

Lastly something I found of interest in the covers dept.  The Bird & The Bee is releasing an album of Hall & Oates covers titled " Interpreting the Masters, Vol. 1: A Tribute to Daryl Hall & John Oates" (Phew! that's a mouthful, eh?) This drops next Tuesday as well and promises to be a fun reminder of how great a song writing duo H&O were.....certainly not as good as the originals, but a pop tribute perfect for summer.
