DUDE, didn’t you just put out a DOUBLE album like, 18 months ago? k-os is a music-making machine, with a new album called Can’t Fly Without Gravity, coming sometime next year. Check out the first track, “WiLD4theNight (Ego Land)”
I started writing something on the piano when I was taking a break from mixing the album, and then I remembered this poem that I had found in my files. Scrawled above the poem it said “to John and Heath,” and I was referring to John Lennon and Heath Ledger. Heath was going to put out our first album and we became close, we had all of these plans, and then he died. We had talked the day before he died. I don’t know when I had written the poem but it had been a few years earlier. It must’ve been right after I had talked to this psychic, who told me that a man named Heath said that John says hello. So I was like “John who?” And then I thought maybe it was John Lennon
This has been a VERY good week for Rural Alberta Advantage fans! Not only did the band announce a show in Edmonton (October 20th at Starlite Room with July Talk), they also released a new song, AND details of their next album!
RAA will release Mended with Gold on September 30, and you can check out the first single, “Terrified” below.
Last week, The Gaslight Anthem surprised us with “Rollin and Tumblin”, a new tune from their upcoming album “Get Hurt” with some serious teeth. That track got everyone wondering if the New Jersey band was heading in a heavier direction with record #5 – but the newly released, ultra balled-y (and Springsteen-y) title track suggests that ‘Get Hurt’ will showcase the Gaslight Anthem that you already know and love. Check it out below.
