Another Friday means a whole host of new music released for your listening pleasure! This week, we check out the latest new tracks from Tash Sultana, Black Foxxes, Greentea Peng and Black Stone Cherry.
Tash Sultana - Willow Tree (feat. Jerome Farah)
alt. tickets favourite Tash Sultana is back! Having just announced a sophomore album 'Terra Firma' alongside first single 'Willow Tree', and we couldn't be more excited about it.
This new single, the first to follow up from the excellent debut 'Flow State', sees Tash Sultana collaborate with one of 2020's fastest emerging artists in Jerome Farah for a groove-laden jam. It has Tash Sultana's signature chilled out vibe stamped all over it, which makes for a perfect match with Jerome Farah's soulful vocals.
This new album comes after a period of self-reflection in which Tash slowed down and took some time away from her intense touring schedule. “I didn’t realize that I needed to create a space and home for myself to feel like a person again,” explains Tash. “I just went inward and found a really peaceful place and wrote an album, and I feel really happy with it.”
We can't wait to hear 'Tera Firma' in full and watch Tash perform some new tracks at the Eventim Apollo in September 2021.
Black Foxxes - Black Foxxes
Over the course of the first two albums (2016’s 'I’m Not Well' and 2018’s 'Reidi'), Black Foxxes main-man Mark Holley established his band as a potent creative force, carving out a signature spot on the emotive rock ‘n’ roll map backed by strong, growing support from fans and media alike.
Black Foxxes have now returned with their most ambitious album yet. Comprised of 9 new songs, the band spent 18 months searching for that “magic sweet spot”, this is Black Foxxes in the raw - unfiltered, unfussed with.
Greentea Peng - Revolution
This morning Greentea Peng did not just announce a European tour, including stops in London, Nottingham and Bristol, she released a huge new dub-infused single 'Revolution'!
The new tune is a response to the political and societal turmoil experienced thorughout this long tough year, describing the track Greentea Peng said: "Revolution is a product of this pain and also the anger we’ve been struggling to move through, at the same time it represents the hope conjured. A reminder to remember where the first revolution must take place and also a reminder to be aware of where and what we put our energy and belief into."
Black Stone Cherry - The Human Condition
As the world plummeted into the COVID-19 pandemic, the four members of Black Stone Cherry were nestled deep in the woods of Kentucky, scrambling to complete their 7th album. There, they could feel the disease closing in as they watched the news daily, and it became apparent the album they were finishing featured lyrics that were eerily prescient. The resulting 13-track record is broadly emotive, and anthemic. It was finished just before the global lockdown was imposed, and it’s aptly titled, 'The Human Condition'.
