Friday New Releases – June 19th, 2020

Welcome back, you made it through another week and you should be proud as who knows what the world threw at us this week as each week it seems to be something worse than the last.  But at least the world is giving us some new music and that makes it all better.  There are a handful of new music I am looking forward to getting and those are marked in Blue. Let me know what you are interested in, if anything, and tell me what I missed.  Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a fabulous weekend!

  • 81Lc7IrBXqL._SX522_  Whitesnake – The ROCK Album (2020 Remix) – (Saltburn / Rhino):  In the first of 3 albums in a new series by Whitesnake, the Rock album is a bunch of remixes of old songs with one new one I believe.  The other two will be out later in the year and in to next year are The Love Album and The Blues Album.  I am glad the Rock starts it all off.  This will finish up my David Coverdale Review series nicely until the other albums come out that is.

  • download-12  Switchfoot – Covers E.P. – (Fantasy Records / Concord):  Ah, I love me some Switchfoot and although not an album of new material, we get a small collection of cover songs.  At least these aren’t your standard fare. You get a cover from Frank Ocean, The Chainsmokers, Vampire Weekend and more.  Should be interesting.

  • 51O8lTtP0uL  The Sword – Chronology: 2006-2018 (3CD Set) – (Craft Recordings / Concord):  This should be awesome, a 3 CD greatest hits and rarity package from The Sword.  The just released a live 3 CD set with a ton of live songs and other rarities so why not add them both to the collection.

  • 81C5BaSwFLL._SS500_  Michael Franti & Spearhead – Work Hard and Be Nice – (Boo Wax / Thirty Tigers):  Michael Franti is a rapper, musician, poet, activist, documentarian, and singer-songwriter.  He takes all those things and throws it in to his music which will make you think, laugh, cry and every other emotion.  A little something for everyone.

  • 6184ha76nxL._SX522_  Jason Mraz – Look for the Good – (Interraband / BMG):  This was an add this morning as I had this being released in July.  Not used to albums being moved up during Covid, normally they are moving further out on the release list.  I love Jason’s laid back vibe and he is such a wordsmith that it is fun listening to his lyrics.  This should be good.

And the rest…

  1. How many versions of Here I Go Again does one need?
    Yet how many versions of Still of the Night does one need?
    Still of the Night is a monster track so to have another version is all good…
    Dunno John will have to think about getting this W.S Rock album

    1. Apparently you need at least 1 more. I’m interested to hear this and my vinyl copy should be here this afternoon and it will be the final review in the series…until the Love Album and Blues albums come out in the months ahead (Oct and Feb, respectively I believe).

      1. Nice John
        To be honest I don’t know how much I would listen to this one but I do like that it has just rock stuff on it!
        The love album kinda scares me though lol

        1. Being that it is just “rock” stuff, I might actually pull this out just to hear it. The “Love” one has be concerned as well, but sometimes I’m in the mood for only ballads. It might work. We will see.

    1. I’m hoping there is more than just a little “remix” and I’m hoping for some new arrangements or something more dramatic.

      I’m pissed about the Mraz album as that would’ve been high on my list. Most albums recently are getting delayed, that one got moved up as I show it on July 24th. Dang it!! I am going to go add it to the post. thanks for the heads up.
