Yep, that’s right, Greatful Dead are coming together for one last reunion. A three-day series of shows in Chicago! Unfortunately, Jerry Garcia will not be returning from the dead, but I’m sure he will be with the Dead in spirit 😉
Filling in is Phish’s front-man, Trey Anastasio, and Bruce Hornsby will be playing keys.
Every new year, I always get excited to see what albums are expected to drop or who’s headlining what and writing new material.
I am really looking forward to new music from Alabama Shakes in the coming year. Their debut album, Boys & Girls, really hit home with and quickly became a favorite of mine. Another group I am super excited about hearing from this year is Florence + The Machine. A few rumored leaks have been floating around on internet that a new album is expected in the second quarter of 2015. They have also been confirmed to be headlining this year’s Coachella festival, along with Jack White and Tame Impala…it’s been a while since we’ve heard anything new from them. In fact, they’ve been working on a new record with Mark Ronson. Mark Ronson is expected to come back with strong force with Uptown Funk, also featuring Bruno Mars and Chance the Rapper (who also has a new album expected to be released later in the year).
The XX have been seen recording in various locations, working on their next LP No. 3. Marina & The Diamonds have been dropping singles leading up to their album release in April. Ellie Goulding has been one busy bee in 2014, working on a new direction for music in 2015. She’s been partnering with Calvin Harris, and sharing lots of new cover songs on social media.
Muse is also expected to release some new, heavy and raw material with controversial material touching current events, economical issues, social diversities – heavy stuff with a heavy sound that I’m looking forward to.
So what are you looking forward to in music for this year?
