Smokey Robinson

Posted on 19 March 2023 by Brian Walsh

Smokey Robinson recently released a new single “How You Make Me Feel,” the latest from his upcoming new album, Gasms.

Unlike the album’s title track and “I Fit In There,” the new track is a slow jam that sees Robinson professing his love through some clever wordplay and tasteful double entendres.

“I’m addicted you / Nothing about me is restricted to you / I can’t wait to see what you’re fixing to do / Because I know, whatever it is, it’s gonna feel better,” Robinson sings. “You make me feel like everything’s okay, every day.”

Gasms, which is Robinson’s first album since 2009’s Time Flies When You’re Having Fun, arrives on April 28.

Grand Funk

Posted on 19 March 2023 by Brian Walsh

Marking the 50th anniversary of their 1973 album We’re An American Band and its Platinum title track, Grand Funk Railroad have announced a U.S. tour.

The American Band Tour begins in Clewiston, Florida, on March 18, with an appearance at the Clewiston Sugar Festival.

The final two hometown shows in Michigan will feature Grand Funk Railroad performing as special guests of Kid Rock.

During the tour, the legendary rock band will play their trademark “rock and soul” classics.

The Billboard Hot 100 chart-topping song was written by Grand Funk Railroad founding member Don Brewer.

“‘We’re An American Band’ came to me when we were flying from town to town on our Phoenix Tour in 1972,” Brewer said. “We were being sued by our former manager Terry Knight and he was trying to stop us from performing. The line ‘We’re comin’ to your town, we’ll help you party it down’ came to me first and I wrote the song around that line.”

Def Leppard

Posted on 19 March 2023 by Brian Walsh

Def Leppard have announced that their new album Drastic Symphonies, featuring the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, will be released on May 19.

The 15-track Drastic Symphonies features Def Leppard’s greatest produced tracks dramatically reimagined and sounding larger and more exhilarating than ever before.

Recorded at Abbey Road Studios, the album includes new vocals and instrumental from the band.

According to a statement, the band has “deconstructed and rebuilt not only some of their most well-known tracks but also some of their hidden gems as well. By and large, they have intertwined the audio from the original tapes and performed them alongside the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra. The album includes new vocals and guitars which culminates in stunningly beautiful symphonic arrangements. At different points, you can hear Joe Elliott duetting with his younger self.”

“Def Leppard has always enjoyed veering off the expected path – working with the likes of Tim McGraw, Taylor Swift & Alison Krauss for example,” said lead singer Joe Elliott. “So, when the offer to revisit some of our back catalogue with the Royal Philharmonic was presented to us, to a man we all jumped at it.”

YES recently announced that their new studio album Mirror To The Sky will be released via InsideOutMusic/Sony Music on May 19.

Mirror To The Sky was produced by Steve Howe, YES’ longest serving member and master guitarist.

“This is a very important album for the band,” he said. “We kept the continuity in the approach we established on The Quest, but we haven’t repeated ourselves. That was the main thing.”

“As YES did in the seventies from one album to another, we’re growing and moving forward. In later years, YES often got going but then didn’t do the next thing. This album is demonstrative of us growing and building again,” Howe added.

For YES, that “next thing” is a collection of high energy, intricate, lush and layered new studio songs for an album which adds to the band’s much heralded legacy, while charting a path to exciting future times ahead.

YES released the video for “Cut From The Stars,” the first track from the album.

Mirror To The Sky will be available on several formats, all featuring artwork by long-time YES artist & collaborator Roger Dean.

Susanna Hoffs, Bangles

Posted on 15 March 2023 by Brian Walsh

The Bangles’ frontwoman Susanna Hoffs recently shared her cover of Rolling Stones’ “Under My Thumb,” which is featured on her upcoming album, The Deep End.

The album of covers, produced by Peter Asher, is set for release on April 7.

On The Deep End, Hoffs covers 13 of her favorite songs, including songs by Billie Eilish, Joy Oladokun, Brandy Clark, Holly Humberstone, Ed Sheeran, Squeeze, Leslie Gore, Colin Blunstone and Yazoo.

“I love the Rolling Stones,” Hoffs said about the selection of “Under My Thumb.” “I’ve listened to that song on repeat since it came out in the mid-’60s.”

“I had an epiphany when I really thought about what the song is about, and it ignited this idea to do my own spin on it—to change the gender and see how it felt,” she added.
