I know my blog has been a bit quiet on the new Music Monday front, and that is thanks to all of the new and good Music, releasing all at once! It seems as though we are officially now in Autumn, we have a slew of new releases in the Western Music scene; that too, from 3 of my favourite artists!
The latest releases which have grabbed my attention are:
Starlight – Emeli Sande (from her upcoming album Starlight)
Son of Solomon – The Corrs (from their upcoming album Jupiter calling)
Swingin’ With My Eyes Closed – Shania Twain (the second single from her just released album Now)
Emeli Sande is ready to release her third studio album, Starlight. While I have been a huge fan of her first album Our Version of Events, her second release Long Live the Angels, sadly failed to make a lasting impression on me. The Starlight single, is very different from her previous tracks, as the song has a dance/trance vibe to it. Her vocals are strong as always, but may sound a tad repetitive to some. It seems like a strong release from the Emeli and it will be interesting to hear what the rest of the album sounds like!
The second release is Son of Solomon from one of my favourite bands of all-time The Corrs. Again, their last album White Light, sadly did not impress me that much, but I have fallen in love with SoS in the very first listen of the track. It is taken from their upcoming album Jupiter Calling – I love the name of the album! I didn’t realise just how effortlessly and clearly Andrea can sing low notes, which dominate most of the song.
The third release is Swingin’ With My Eyes Closed by Shania Twain, taken from her latest album Now. I had previously featured her first release from the album Life’s about to get Good at the blog (surprisingly it is track 14 on the album!) Swingin’ With My Eyes Closed is an almost country-rock style song and sees a stronger side of Shania’ Music. It is a song which will grow in popularity after its release. I will be reviewing the full album Now soon, so keep an eye out for it!
If you like any of these three releases, feel free to share your thoughts in the comments!
