Can We Talk New Music?

Tuesday, March 28, 2017


Halsey: My bae. My wife. My muse. Not to be one of those music geeks, but I've been following Halsey since her EP release and god am I proud. Her songs New Americana, a 2016 summer classic, Castle, which is featured on the Huntsman: Winter's War, her feature on Justin Bieber's The Feeling, and Closer, which was a collab with the Chainsmokers. Needless to say, when Halsey posted this photo on twitter...
...and girl I died. The release date for Hopeless Fountain Kingdom is June 2 and I honestly can't wait for it and Halsey's new tour that will obviously come after. I went from the back of the Newport to the third row of James Pavilion at Nautica and, if third time's a charm, I'm hoping that this time around I will be front and center (especially for "Is there somewhere" which is when she semi-crowd surfs). Visibly seeing her arenas grow from my time with her in 2015 is a tradition I plan on keeping and with her success, so far I feel like a proud mum. 
Paramore: Call me mall goth but Paramore will forever be the goat. My senior year English teacher, Mr. Gerding agrees. He'd constantly compliment my phone screen when I had them on it. Paramore has been a band for 10-11 years and it's still going strong.  It doesn't even need to be said that I'm looking forward to #5. I'm just hoping they'll stop by Columbus because they didn't in their "Writing the Future" tour. (Gerding traveled across the state border to see them. That literally will be me.) 

Lorde : Girl, we have been waiting since 2013 wtf. Green Light and Liability are bops af. Her new album, Melodrama is said to drop June 16th. Lorde is queen so enough said. 



The 1975: Last Month or so, their socials were flooded with brown and tan pictures which strayed from their current neon pink and blue theme that goes with the ILIWYSFYSSBYSUOI album. From there we were told that the new album's name would be "Music for Cars" and it's due for 2018. It's a bummer due to my concert being on June 3rd (a day after Halsey's album drop. I'm going to be overloaded with great music in June, bless.), however, that means more tours! They recently dropped a cover of Sade's "By Your Side". Hopefully, they'll drop some more singles before the summer. I'm gonna need that set list to grow. 



Ed Sheeran: Man oh man. My love, Teddy. Ed released his third studio album on March 3rd and I've been listening to If you haven't already sat through the Divide album song by song please do yourself a favor and give yourself about two hours to do so. My personal favorites are Dive, Save Myself, Barcelona, Bibia Be Ye Ye, and Supermarket Flowers. He is coming to Columbus in the fall and I wanted to buy front row tickets but that price tag climbed to the thousands and I'm not rich. I do plan on scoring ticks in the summer after I work my butt off for paychecks, but whether or not they will be nose bleeds or on the floor will remain unknown until then. Maybe with time the prices will decrease? Pray for me.

Anyway, those are the jams I'm looking forward to. If you don't like any of these musicians, I hope that 2017 will be a good year of music for you as well.
