Fridays Are For Music Releases: New Taylor, Maroon 5, Logic + More!
Taylor Swift kicked off the excitement yesterday morning with the announcement that she would be giving us less than a day to prepare for her new album Folklore.
At midnight, we got the 16-track album she’s been working on in quarantine. She says “In isolation my imagination has run wild and this album is the result. I’ve told these stories to the best of my ability with all the love, wonder, and whimsy they deserve.”
Our take: not only are a lot of the lyrics fitting with how a lot of us are feeling in this time, it is also the soothing and moody album we didn’t know we needed. The album is also wonderfully produced to make her vocal ability truly shine.
On top of this, we got a surprise release from Maroon 5! Their newest song Nobody’s Love was accompanied by an intrically-shot (on an iPhone) video, directed by David Dobrick. Yes…David from YouTube.
They’re definitely playing into the 80s synthesizer trend, but this takes it a step further by being the perfect summertime jam.
But how do we feel about bald Adam Levine?!
Last week we discussed the news that Login shared, being that his newest album No Pressure would be his last in order for him to focus on fatherhood (aw).
The album dropped last night as well. Hip hop fan or not, you can certainly appreciate the production value that has gone into this.
