Every day we’re faced with an onslaught of album announcements so we thought we’d start sharing the soon-to-be-released love by putting together a list of the most notable and exciting album announcements on a weekly basis. This week’s features some new-jazz from Thundercat, former Wolfmother frontman Andrew Stockdale’s debut, the long awaited Deap Valley record and more.

The Weight Of Your Love

The follow-up to Editors’ two consecutive #1 UK and ARIA Top 40 Albums, 2007’s An End Has A Start and 2009’s In This Light And On This Evening. Their debut album, 2005’s The Back Room has sold over half a million copies in the UK.

The Weight Of Your Love is the first album to feature new members Justin Lockey and Elliott Williams following the departure of founding member Chris Urbanowicz in 2012. It was recorded at Blackbird Studio in Nashville with producer Jacquire King (Tom Waits, Norah Jones, Of Monsters And Men, Kings Of Leon) and mixed by Craig Silvey (Arctic Monkeys, The Horrors, Arcade Fire, Bon Iver).

Andrew Stockdale
Keep Moving

To realign his musical planets, Stockdale has decided to put out these new recordings under his own name, Andrew Stockdale. Featuring all the current Wolfmother members, collectively the team is thrilled with this mojo soul shift. Albeit that it is new musical territory, though essentially it’s about the music and hopefully the music will speak for itself. So for this chapter, the Wolfmother is put to rest for the time being.

Following on from the EP of the same name, which was exclusively released on iTunes in Australia on the 26th of April and has been hovering around the Top Ten on the Rock Charts – Keep Moving represents all the killer singing, cosmic riffs, and sweet production that Stockdale has come to be known for.

Deap Vally

Following hot on the heels of their two-date Australian stopover and Splendour announcement, comes the news of Deap Vally’s debut album. Recorded with producer Lars Stalfors (The Mars Volta) in the band’s hometown, Los Angeles, the album’s 11 songs of visceral, heart-churning rock ‘n’ roll demonstrate why Lindsey Troy and Julie Edwards are fast emerging as one of the most talked-about new bands on the planet.

Deap Vally break blues down to its simplest, most fundamental form: beat, melody, and meaning, while the duo’s scorching live shows are fast becoming the stuff of legend. Unlikely as it may seem, the pair did actually first meet at a needlework class, just last year – bonding over their crochet hooks with a love of the blues. From stitch to stage, their album is highly anticipated.

Dream On Dreamer

After the massive worldwide success of the debut album Heartbound in 2011, Dream On Dreamer will release their much anticipated sophomore record Loveless on Friday 28 June via UNFD.

Loveless will be Dream On Dreamer’s first record as a five piece, after a lineup shuffle saw them move keyboardist Daniel Jungwirth to bass, as well as the addition of new clean vocalist, Zachary Britt, into the fold. Britt made his debut with DOD as one of the headliners at Push Over Festival in March, before completing a 30 date European tour, which included the band’s first ever headline shows in Russia.

Loveless is the first time the band has been able to really focus on writing music with their intense touring schedule. The extra work and effort shows, and fans and critics alike will be rewarded with Dream On Dreamer delivering their strongest album to date; A definitive statement about what they’ve learnt from the last three years of ridiculously hard work.

Out June 28 through UNFD.

Track listing TBA.

False Idols

Trip Hop legend, founding member of Massive Attack and pioneer of the celebrated ‘Bristol sound’, Tricky, is back, back with a new record label and a stunning new studioalbum set to be released in Australia on May 29. The new LP ‘False Idols’ features collaborations with label mates Francesca Belmonte, Fifi Rong, and Nneka, alongsideThe Antlers’ Peter Silberman, and stands as Tricky’s most accomplished album since his legendary early works.

The spirit of Tricky’s ‘90s output looms large over ‘False Idols’. There are times when his entire career has seemed like a stubborn refusal to be defined by its success or sound. He has finally come to terms with it, and with this his 10th studio album, even learned to embrace it;

“I was lost for ages,” Tricky says. “I was trying to prove something to people, trying to do something to please other people and also myself at the same time, which is never going to work.”

Boards Of Canada
Tomorrow’s Harvest

After considerable speculation since Record Store Day, which saw mysterious 12” records being discovered by enterprising fans. Boards of Canada started a wild goose chase that involved cryptic coding, secret video messages, and fans going gaga over a new release for the influential iconic group; their first album in nearly a decade since 2005’s The Campfire Headphase.
Eventually the Scottish duo broke the speculation and revealed the existence of a new Boards of Canada album called ‘Tomorrow’s Havest’

Set to continue the legacy started by their series of EPs and their iconic 1998 album Music Has The Right To Children, and 2002’s equally lauded Geogaddi, ‘Tomorrow’s Harvest’ is set to reinstate the Warp Records gems into the upper reaches of the musical firmament once more.
