Double vinyl LP pressing. 2015 collection from the legendary songwriter, vocalist, guitarist and 19-time Grammy Award-winner. Forever Man spans three decades of Clapton's Reprise Records years and features classic studio tracks. The collection traces much of Clapton's career featuring the Grammy Award-winning tracks ''Change The World'', ''Tears In Heaven'', ''Bad Love'' and including materials from Eric's Grammy Award-winning albums From The Cradle and Unplugged. Guest performers include B.B. King and J.J. Cale.
Sufjan Stevens mixes autobiography, religious fantasy, and regional history to create folk songs of grand proportions. A preoccupation with epic concepts has motivated two state records (Michigan & Illinois) and an electronic album for the animals of the Chinese zodiac (Enjoy Your Rabbit). If his new album Carrie and Lowell is about anything it's about the work of thinking through song, the planting of various philosophies in an aural playground where all is not joyous but there is no absence of joy since the spirit is lifted up by creation, and the telling of stories that lead to other thoughts, the artist's spirit sitting in silence and his voice and his playing.
Currents is the highly anticipated third full-length from the much loved Australian band and the follow up to 2012's Lonerism. A top live draw and critical darling, the group was a smash at Coachella in Apri 2015l and headlined Lollapalooza and Outside Lands. Accolades for the new songs include Best New Music (Pitchfork) and glowing reviews from Stereogum, Consequence of Sound, Rolling Stone, and more.
Rickie Lee Jones didn't write any new music for a decade because, she says, "I could not write," she tells The Wall Stree Journal. Two-time Grammy winner Rickie Lee Jones exploded onto the pop scene with her groundbreaking self-titled debut and has fearlessly experimented with her sound and persona over 15 critically acclaimed albums. Her latest, The Other Side of Desire was written, recorded and rooted in the city of New Orleans, where Jones lives on the opposite side of the street made famous by Tennessee Williams. Produced by John Porter (of Roxy Music) and Mark Howard, this is the first new music Jones has written in over a decade.
Deluxe Vinyl edition features remastered album and bonus tracks featuring previously unreleased alternate takes and live performances on two black heavyweight vinyl discs. Housed in an outer wallet with real zip.
For those on a budget, the single album is also available but, alas, with no real zip!
'Sticky Fingers,' one of the most revered albums in the storied catalogue of the legendary Rolling Stones, is set to enthral a new generation of admirers. The 1971 classic — which captured the band at the absolute peak of their powers, on timeless tracks such as "Brown Sugar," "Wild Horses," "Bitch," "Sister Morphine" and "Dead Flowers" - will be reissued by Universal Music in a variety of formats.
Following the runaway success of her EP collection, 'The Double EP: A Sea of Split Peas', Courtney Barnett returns with her debut album. Recorded in the Autumn of 2014 in an intense 10 day session at Head Gap studios in Melbourne, the album finally brings Barnett's incisive vision into stark, unflinching focus; her wit sharpened to a knife edge, her melodies more infectious and addictive than ever. 'Sometimes I Just Sit and Think, and Sometimes I just Sit' cements Barnett's standing as one of the most distinctive voices in indie rock. Mixing witty, often hilarious observations with devastating self-assessment over a beguiling collection of songs that reveals her as an ambitious songwriter with an ear for clever turns of phrase and an eye for story-song details that are literate without being pretentious.
On Florence + The Machine’s third album, their focus is clear from the cover art. While the group's first two albums featured frontwoman Florence Welch posed in a theatrical side profile with her eyes closed, this one finds her eyes open for the first time—and staring straight into the camera. This sense of immediacy and alertness infuses the band’s most mature, cohesive album yet, starting with propulsive opener, “Ship to Wreck.” Lush arrangements combine a rock band, strings, and brass with Welch’s volcanic, soaring voice, serving high drama on tracks like the driving “What Kind of Man” and the transcendent “Mother”.
Tracker was produced by Knopfler and Guy Fletcher and was recorded at British Grove Studios in London. The band features Mark Knopfler on guitars, Guy Fletcher on keyboards, John McCusker on fiddle, Mike McGoldrick on whistle and flute, Glenn Worf on bass and Ian Thomas on drums. Guest musicians include Ruth Moody (from The Wailin' Jennys) on vocals, Nigel Hitchcock on saxophone and Phil Cunningham on accordion.
On Duets: Re-working The Catalogue, Van Morrison and the guests selected and recorded some of his songs from the catalog of 360 songs across his career. Deliberately steering away from his more well-known classics, Van enlisted some of the artists he most respects to perform these songs with him to re-craft and re-imagine them. The album was recorded in his home town of Belfast and London in the United Kingdom over the last year, using a variety of musicians and fresh arrangements.
Cassandra Wilson has drawn inspiration from Billie Holiday for her entire life and chose the title as a way to honor the iconic singer: Coming Forth By Day is an English translation of the title of the ancient Egyptian "Book of the Dead." The book, formally known as the "The Egyptian Book Of The Dead," is in actuality a Kemetic collection of scriptures more accurately titled, "The Book Of Coming Forth By Day," prescriptions intended to assist both the living and deceased in their journey through life and the afterlife.
By any standard this five-time Grammy-winning jazz pianist and vocalist is one of the most accomplished and distinctive musicians in the world today. Respected far and wide as a wildly successful recording and performing artist, Krall remains a true musical force. At any given moment she could be producing Barbra Streisand’s new album, serving as musical director and arranger for Paul McCartney or hitting the road for a good cause with Neil Young. As the record shows, Diana Krall has already done all that and much more. Along the way Krall has sold more albums than any other female jazz artist of the last 30 years, establishing herself as one of the best-selling and most beloved performers of her generation, one whose recordings thus far have earned her nine gold, three platinum and seven multi-platinum albums.

'I Love You, Honeybear'' was recorded from 2013 to 2014 in Echo Park, Los Angeles. There's a case to be made that it sounds and acts a bit like Scott Walker, Randy Newman, Harry Nilsson, and Dory Previn. The songs are a narration of my experience falling in love. My ambition was to address the sensuality of fear, the terrifying force of love, the unutterable pleasures of true intimacy, and the destruction of emotional and intellectual prisons with an imprint that is undeniably my own.

Pop sensation Taylor Swift releases her next masterpiece, '1989,' which features first single "Shake It Off!"
'1989' is Swift's much-anticipated fifth studio album and is, in her own words, her "first documented, official pop album," nd is a coolection of songs inspiration in listening to late-'80s pop.
Tomorrow's Modern Boxes is the electronic-based second solo record from Radiohead's Thom Yorke with longtime producer Nigel Godrich. Originally released on BitTorrent, the subtly nuanced eight-track set is an album born of silver darkness, pressed onto heavyweight 180-gram vinyl (side B contains a locked groove) completed with undersize 75mm centre labels, housed within heavy white board inner and outer sleeves. These are printed with a metallic silver laminate then multi-tone black and a striking neon green; the whole is enclosed in a bespoke anti-static shield bag — a metallised laminated material usually used by the electronics industry for protecting components from electrostatic interference. The bag is printed with neon green on both sides, and has a resealable grip closure.
Give my Love to London was produced by Rob Ellis and Dimitri Tikovoi and mixed by Flood. Her band includes Portishead's Adrian Utley (guitars), Ed Harcourt (keyboards), Rob Ellis (drums), Dimitri Tikovoi (bass) + string quartet, and special guests Warren Ellis and Jim Sclavunos (Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds). Marianne has written most of the lyrics and the music was written by Nick Cave, Anna Calvi, Roger Waters, Pat Leonard, Tom McRae, Steve Earle.

Fifty years on from his first recordings, David Bowie continues to be at the vanguard of contemporary culture as a musician, artist, icon and a nonpareil to generations of writers, artists and fashionistas — a unique presence in contemporary culture. Nothing Has Changed collects together for the first time the definitive collection of Bowie's music from 1964 to 2014. The album also features Bowie's first new music since he stunned the world with the critically lauded The Next Day. The new single "Sue (Or In A Season Of Crime)" was recorded for Nothing Has Changed with long-time collaborator Tony Visconti and will be released as a digital download the same day as the album.
