#Trajectory1: New Twin Shadow single “Saturdays” ready for take off

In a recent press release, Twin Shadow’s mastermind George Lewis Jr. said his upcoming new album Caer is Spanish for “to fall”, an on going theme in his life where he feels he has to seemingly take a fall to move to the next phase in his life. “It’s sort of destructive, but I guess I thrive on rebirth.”

I think we can all relate to that!

Caer is due April 27th via Warner Bros. Records, Twin Shadow’s 4th studio album and the follow up to 2015’s Eclipse album.

A second single “Little Woman” has also been released.

#Trajectory1 this week: New Muse single “Thought Contagion”


Well their last album Drones came out in 2015 so this new “Thought Contagion” single is the presumed lead single – or first ‘taste’ – of an upcoming album since its about that time again.

It’s a solid song. It sounds like Muse, that’s what we want right? I imagine some fans wont like the rapping verse or the 30 Seconds To Mars and/or Imagine Dragons-ish whoa ohhhhs of the background vocals.

It’s the video that really hooked me. Its retro for sure but feels like a modern Thriller.

I came across these guys when browsing newly released singles this week. Surprised I haven’t heard of them until now!

Let me introduce The Fratellis to you, in case you don’t know about them yet. Hailing from Glasgow, Scotland, they are prepping their 5th studio album In Your Own Sweet Time, set for a March 9th, 2018 release. They have released several ‘singles’ from the new album on Spotify but I am digging this one the best of what’s been released so far.

“Starcrossed Losers” scores a Song of the Week/#trajectory1 nod this week. Here are the other songs that were nominated:

Albert Hammond Jr. is on to his 4th studio album now, and he is doing quite well for himself post-Stokes.

Francis Trouble will drop on March 9th, 2018  via Red Bull Records.

Lead single “Muted Beatings” is a catchy lead single, curious to see what fans think of how it stacks up against other AHJ singles.
