A few weeks back…

we got a double-blast of Rock promise: Royal Blood and Queens of the Stone Age both teased new music. Now, rather intriguingly, Jack White has released an instrumental track in Battle Cry. Björk has released a new video and Kate Nash has new material out. It seems all the heavyweights are producing tunes and keen to make their impact on 2017. Beth Ditto and Marika Hackman are not to be overlooked: two different, stunning songs from two of the most talented songwriters working today. Because The Clash’s eponymous debut is forty-years-old; I have included a classic cut from the record. In addition, there are some wonderful songs from the new albums out – including Father John Misty and Future Islands. Another bumper edition of The April Playlist is upon us!

IN THIS PHOTO: Jack White

It was hard choosing a headliner for this edition – the photo that fronts the piece; Jack White in this case – as we have new releases from both Björk and Gorillaz! It is a tough choice but, to me, Jack White’s release was totally out of the blue! I cannot believe the great music that has arrived over the last few years. As the weather gets hotter, so too does new music. There is no stopping the quality and prolificacy of fantastic tracks. Let’s hope this continues because, as we see here, we are being rather spoiled for wonderful, mood-enriching music!
