ALL MUSIC MAGAZINE UK – NEW RELEASES: The 1975, Bastille, Lauran Hibberd, The Amazons !!!!!!




THE 1975

The 1975 have returned with new single Part of The Band – the first taste of their highly anticipated forthcoming new album Being Funny In A Foreign Language out on 14th October via Dirty Hits. The band’s previous album, 2020’s Notes On A Conditional Form, became their fourth consecutive No. 1 album in the UK, landing at No. 1 in Australia too. The band were named NME’s ‘Band of the Decade’ in 2020 after being crowned ‘Best Group’ at the BRIT Awards in both 2017 & 2019. Their third studio album A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships, also won ‘Mastercard British Album of the Year’ at the 2019 ceremony.



The band today released rave-ready electronic club banger Revolution. Earlier this year Bastille released their hotly anticipated No.1 album, Give Me The Future, a record that explores a futuristic wonderland free from restrictions. The album embraces a new wave of technology, which enables us to get lost inside our imagination and travel back and forward in time to be anyone or do anything. Now, the band are adding a further instalment to this critically acclaimed release, sharing a three-part extended edition of the album, dubbed Give Me The Future + Dreams Of The Past out 26th August, featuring another album’s worth of new songs, collaborations, covers and reprises.



Isle Of Wight power pop specialist Lauran Hibberd releases That Was A Joke from upcoming debut album Garageband Superstar, out August 19th via Virgin Music. She will be doing a series of instore dates to support the release. With glittering acclaim circulating throughout the tastemaker community (NME, The Line Of Best Fit, Dork, DIY, Billboard, NYLON, Clash, Gigwise, Upset), and significant praise across the BBC Radio 1 airwaves (Annie Mac, Jack Saunders, Gemma Bradley), Hibberd’s status continues to grow ahead of the record’s release, and with multiple festival dates and an autumn UK headline tour to come, she’s certainly primed to take full advantage.



Following two huge Top 10 records and sold out shows across the globe, one of the UK’s most exciting bands, The Amazons have announced their stratospheric, anthem-packed new album How Will I Know If Heaven Will Find Me – out on 2nd September on Fiction Records. The album is introduced with their anthemic new single ‘How Will I Know’, premiered on Clara Amfo’s Radio 1 show.
