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?

Confirmation about the song was made just lately, via social media on Tuesday night. It was a video teaser of the track with Fonsi announcing the title as “Echame La Culpa” while on a bed and the words written on a pillow.

In terms of this particular album, she has made it clear that while life can be truly traumatic, it is infinitely beautiful as well and the duality of that requires art to reflect it perfectly.

Nickelback “Feed the Machine” Tour featuring Daughtry

Walking around the Verizon Amphitheater in Atlanta, Georgia, half-listening to Shaman’s Harvest (the opening act of Nickelback’s Feed the Machine Tour), it could have been 2017, 2007 or 2001. Nothing about the crowd (except maybe the age) provided a clue: people attired in the timeless fashion of rock concerts including tour shirts, distressed denim, Flashdance-esque torn up tees. And huge smiles. There’s something irresistible about a good, old-fashioned rock concert with hard-hitting vocals, over-amped guitar and very drunk fans.
