This Week’s New River Music

Title: Shotgun
Artist: George Ezra
Album: Staying At Tamara’s
Released: March 23, 2018
Another track off Staying At Tamara’s, George says: Some of the songs on this record lend themselves more to a nice open fire in a pub in England, and ‘Shotgun’ is definitely not that song. I’m just so happy that we’re releasing into leading into summer. Summer means festivals and festivals mean singing along. I’m very excited.” Alas, he’s not playing in our area anytime soon, so we’ll just have to sing along to the radio!

Title: Beyond
Artist: Leon Bridges
Album: Good Thing
Released: May 4, 2018
This is the second single off of the newly released album. Leon Bridges co-wrote this soulful love song.  He actually co-wrote all 10 tracks on Good Thing! He just turned 29 last week and will be playing the Agganis Arena on Oct 4th!

Title: Come On To Me
Artist: Paul McCartney
Album: Egypt Station
Released: June 19, 2018
A lot of us first heard this in his Carpool Karaoke session with James Corden.  Sir Paul is releasing his 17th solo album, Egypt Station (from which this comes), on Sept 7th.

Title: Keep A Little Soul
Artist: Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers
Album: An American Treasure
Released: June 22, 2018
An American Treasure  is a new box set that puts a spotlight on his lesser known and previously unreleased songs. This is the first single. “Keep a Little Soul,”  is an outtake from the sessions for 1982’s Long After Dark. His wife and daughter say, ” The criteria [for the set] was songs that we all felt really said something about [him]. It’s such a strange thing to lose someone like him. He was much cooler than people could imagine. And I think a lot of people thought he was pretty cool.”

Title: Tidal Wave
Artist: Portugal. The Man
Album: Woodstock
Released: June 16, 2017
Third single track off their eighth studio album, Woodstock.  They’ll be at the Blue Hills Bank Pavilion on September 23rd, with Lucius opening!

Title: 1950
Artist: King Princess
Album: 1950
Released: February 22, 2018
King Princess is the stage name of Mikaela Straus, 19, from Brooklyn. Her EP is entitled Make My Bed and was released in June. “1950” is a tribute to the LGBTQ community and book The Price of Salt  by Patricia Highsmith. She says the song is about how “queer love was only able to exist privately for a long time, expressed in society through coded art forms.”
