Shawn Mendes New Single

“In My Blood” is the first teaser we get from the upcoming third album named SM3. Considering that his last LP debuted at Number One in September 2016 just as his first one had in 2015, there are high hopes for the next project as well. The song is written with Teddy Greiger, Scott Harris and Geoff Warburton and is relatable for just about everyone listening. The track’s artwork is simple, floral and rather suitable with its color combination. The ballad itself works quite well as workout music as well, “Sometimes I feel like giving up, but it isn’t in my blood,” he sings. Yes, that is definitely something that would keep us going.

New Music by Jack White 

Boarding House Reach is a follow up to 2014’s Lazaretto and will be out via Third Man and Columbia. And while we are at it, we can enjoy some Jack White during this year’s Governor Ball Music Festival this summer, featured alongside Eminem, Travis Scott and Yeah Yeah Yeahs. We rather like seeing his solo work, despite loving his White Stripes music as well. The fact that he can indeed create in multiple genres makes him one hell of a talented musician. Hopefully, there is more we can look forward to this year as well?

New Album By Justin Timberlake is Very Much Down to Earth

Loyal fans who have known him from his NSYNC days have also grown up and generally have families of their own. We can certainly relate, especially when it comes to soul-searching in cornfields and camping in the mountains with loved ones. Since his last studio album was back in 2013, it has also given us plenty of time to miss him, despite his constant musical appearances – Trolls soundtrack and all. As for the dropped single? “Filthy” is pretty far from what the name implies. Grown up Timberlake is, with futuristic robotic inventions shown off on set to some slick dance moves. We are pretty sure Steve Jobs was an inspiration here. Dancing robot avatars in 2028? Check!

U2’s “Songs of Experience”

U2 has not only been enduring, but thriving as a rock band for over 40 years now, without showing any signs of stopping. Bono’s lyrical style has been dubbed Bongolese as well, which means that long after U2 has left the world of music, the style will still be in place. There is a legacy here, and it is a beautiful one to leave behind. Furthermore, a precedent is set for artists to stay on for half a century or more in this domain, only gaining momentum as they continue to usher in larger crowds of fans over the years. It is almost fitting that we have “Songs of Experience” this time around, where the question of what happens to us as we age is given. In 2014, there was “Songs of Innocence” that this appears to be a companion piece to, philosophies aired about life in general, and the changes we come across as the years go by; both good and bad. The lyrics are inspired by William Blake’s “Songs of Innocence and Experience,” where the relationship between binaries in life, such as young versus old, are remarked upon. It begs the question: what does it really mean to grow up in this world?
