Noel Gallagher’s High-Flying Birds – Holy Mountain
First taster of The Guv’nor’s third solo album Who Built The Moon?, produced by our own David Holmes. Fuzzier than usual, and hugely melodic, there’s still a major bang of Slade off it though. Like most of Noel’s solo work, we’d rather hear Liam sing it…..
Django Django – Tic Tac Toe
The new album Marble Skies will be with us on January 26th, and this is the lead single. Great to have them back
Bob Dylan – Making A Liar Out Of Me
Bobcats have long been hoping for an official release centred around Dylan’s ‘Jesus Years’. We’ve finally got our wish, with The Bootleg Series Vol 13: Trouble No More coming out on November 3rd. This is a previously unreleased track
St. Vincent – Pills
Annie Clark’s newie nearly made it as our Album Of The Week, and this song is one of the reasons why. Masseducation is out now
Jeff Lynne’s E.L.O. – Turn To Stone (Live At Wembley)
November 17th will see the release of an audio and video recording of the band’s gig at Wembley Stadium from June this year. Great to see them covering the Wilburys’ ‘Handle With Care’, and the title song Jeff penned for the movie Xanadu. No sign of their late-period classic ‘Calling America’ though. Boooooo
Tears For Fears – I Love You But I’m Lost
This song represents the first new music from Roland and Curt since 2004, and appears on a forthcoming Greatest Hits collection called Rule The World, out November 10th
R.E.M. – Devil Rides Backwards (demo)
Hot on the heels of ‘Mike’s Pop Song’ comes another outtake from the Automatic For The People sessions. The reissued album is out on November 10th, which is shaping up to be a very expensive month for the RockYouLike staff…
New Album of The Week
Squeeze – The Knowledge
Messrs. Difford and Tilbrook’s fifteenth album under the Squeeze banner, this record is a joy from start to finish, with the lead track ‘Innocence In Paradise’ possibly our favourite single of 2017. They’ve no right to be this good forty years in. Buy this album.
Reissue of The Week
Bob Marley & The Wailers – Live!
Bob’s classic live album has been reissued as an expanded set, now featuring both London sets from July 1975 in full. Every home should have a copy of this album, now more than ever.
