6 album releases to look forward to in Summer 2017

There are plenty of exciting albums being released this summer as we don our festival gear, jet-set to warmer climates and get out in the garden with a Pimms and a barbecue, here are some of the albums that might make your summer 2017 soundtrack.

Phoenix – Ti Amo

Phoenix’s 6th album, Ti Amo, will be released on June 9, 2017 and in typical Phoenix fashion, our first indication is that it’s an upbeat, joyful album carrying on from much of their earlier work. They have become synonymous with synth-indie which is a difficult genre to write sad music to even though the band cited difficult times writing the album amidst such turbulent world events including the Paris terror attacks and the refugee crisis. Perhaps, Ti Amo, meaning “I love you’ in Italian is a response of togetherness in the face of tragedy.

HAIM – Something To Tell You

HAIM are about to embark on releasing their difficult second album after the mind-blowing success of Days Are Gone, their debut album which took the music industry by storm. The hugely talented sisters are releasing their new album on July 7, 2017, and we hope their second album doesn’t disappoint. They have so far released two singles from the album, Want You Back and Right Now with the former being much more classic-HAIM than the latter which is somewhat different and possibly a failed experiment, depending on how you look at it.

Lucy Rose – Something’s Changing

Lucy Rose returns with her new album which she wrote whilst travelling across South and Central America. The album is due to be released on 14 July, 2017, and is due to be the soundtrack for every chilled out campfire that happens this summer. Lucy also made a documentary on her travels whilst writing this album which will also be released soon. Expect more stunning vocals, calming instrumentals and powerful melodies from her new release.

Com Truise – Iteration

The master of chillwave, Com Truise, is back with his first album of new material since 2011. Com Truise aka Seth Haley stated that the album will be made up of “neon-streaked melodies, big drums, robotic grooves and bleary nostalgia”. The album will be released on June 16, 2017, and will likely dominate the playlists of every synth lover this summer.

Fleet Foxes – Crack up

Fleet Foxes are back after a short hiatus with their new album due on June 16, 2017. The indie-folk band, notable for their vocal harmonies and country guitar style shot to prominence in 2008 with their critically acclaimed debut album, Fleet Foxes. Crack Up will be the band’s third album and will continue on where the second album left off as the last notes of “Grown Ocean” will be the beginning notes of the first track on Crack Up.

Alt J – Relaxer

Having already teased us with a couple of early singles (3WW and In Cold Blood), Alt J are coming back with a bang this summer. Their new album, Relaxer, retains the psychedelic vibes, the down-beat tones and the folky duets but incorporates a few new experiments to their sound. In Cold Blood featured singing in binary code and there’s sure to be many more bizarre and delightful surprises from the band with their new album as they set to take on the festival circuit this summer.
