Will Zara Larsson’s international debut album in the beginning of 2017? For sure!!! If nothing else, it gives Annika Norlin released a new album under the name Safe!
Zara Larsson on stage at the MTV Europe award in Rotterdam in november, where she received the prize as newcomer of the Year.
Have you ever produced a blockbuster movie? Then you know: it is important to plan years in advance. It is a long-term work, and it is not possible to suddenly have överraskningspremiär of 578 cinemas the world over.
Musikartisterna have more freedom and do not need the same foresight. In return, a planned venture with short notice be withdrawn; a release date for an album is not set in stone. Here are ten products that are expected in the next few months, and is expected to attract great attention.
Zara Larsson is the most famous Swedish pop artist in the world then if not Robyn so at least Tove Lo. The four singles she released 2015-16 is big international hits, and included all of them on the album, which follows up her scandinavian debut from 2014. But when? The date has already been postponed several times. The last commandment reads “early 2017″.
Ryan Adams latest album was a cover of the song, the whole of Taylor Swift’s “1989″ from the beginning to the end. The 17 February will be a bunch of new songs, during the samlingstiteln “the Prisoner”. The two singelspår is already out there sounds less in 1989 than in 1971.
Taylor Swift itself must, of course, also follow-up to “1989″. But when? And how? During the year, it said. The artist who used to be associated with the country are now working in the studio with Drake, where she announces that she “explores a new urban sound”, with both hip-hop and r&b.
The xx ended up in the back seat when Jamie xx last year released his solo album “Into colour”. But a third gruppalbum is at the time, already 13 January: “I see you”. Single “On hold” was released in november.
Father John Misty is Josh Tillmans alter ego, and the name that in 2015, ended up higher up on the festivalaffischerna. He once served as the drummer in Fleet Foxes seem more and more like a parenthesis. On genombrottsalbumets “Holy shit”, he made more statement than one could ask of a four-minute long ballad, but the new “Holy hell” match to the model. The Album is expected during the year. And, yes: to and with Fleet Foxes releases a new, the first in six years.
Laura Marlings career lost a little momentum when she made a tvärgir with two-year-old “Short movie”. On 10 march, the sequel, “Semper femina”. The single “Soothing” shows that she does not want to become a parody of itself this time either.
Sylvester Schlegel notes with their new single, which will be the title song on his solo album, published 16 January, that “It will go, everything will be fine”. The song is eight minutes of rumination, and electronic sounds.
Broken Social Scene – musikerkollektivet with Kevin Drew and Leslie Feist – took down the sign in 2011, but the terror attack at the Bataclan in Paris brought revanschlusten. During the year there will be an album and tour.
Safe! gave on boxing day out the song “Snooze”, but itself seems to Annika Norlin’t have been lazy. On 3 February, the album “Mammals”.
