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:
Big Jack White fan here. Love his work with White Strikes, Raconteurs, Dead Weather, and his solo stuff. Rarely do I not care for a Jack White song. I was NOT crazy about the “Connected By Love” lead single released a couple weeks ago and it still hasn’t grown on me. 2nd single “Corporation” is awesome and I can’t get enough of it. It earns #MTSongoftheWeek/#Trajectory1 honors this week.
His third solo album Boarding House Reach will drop March 23rd, 2018 via his Third Man Records.
Jack White will be touring April through August in the U.S. and Europe so be sure to catch him – he is great in concert!
