Justin Timberlake Announces New Album, More Music From the Black Panther Soundtrack + More

This week in April Reviews The Music News…

The famous and talented Justin Timberlake announced his plan to grace us with more of his snappy tunes earlier this month. The lead single from the new album Man of the Woods has already been released and has received positive reviews so far. This will be the first music he’s released since the Trolls movie came out back in 2016. The lead single is a combination of the hip-hop pop that dominates radio waves, and funky synth pop, teasing an interesting and fresh sound from the popular artist. You can preorder the track here

The new Marvel movie Black Panther is one of the most anticipated films of 2018. One of the reasons it’s on everyone’s radar is the fact that Kendrick Lamar is producing its soundtrack. So far two tracks have been released, All the Stars and King’s Dead, featuring SZA, Jay Rock, Future and James Blake. The album is due to be released a week prior to the movie (early February) and should prove to be extremely popular. You can pre-order the album on iTunes

In Indie News…

Born Ruffians, a band from Toronto, released their lead single Miss You on Wednesday. It’s our first taste of their upcoming album Uncle, Duke & The Chief out on the 16th of February. The work promises to take listeners back to the old school rock ‘n’ roll days, with Luke Lalonde saying he heard an old voice memo “on the right night when I had a guitar at hand… the rest of the song came very quickly (after that)”. You can listen to the single on Soundcloud or Spotify, and if you’d like the preorder their album click here. For more information on the band, visit their Website, Facebook and Twitter.

Now, if you’re into Americana roots, layered harmonies and acoustic goodness you’re sure to love The Sound of Ghosts. Each individual member of this dynamic quintet bring their own influences, from classic rock to musical theatre, culminating in a blend of zesty, original tunes. Their latest single Perfect Pair was released less than a week ago, and along with their previous singles Fall Apart and Train to Nowhere they are certainly a group to listen out for.
