Today’s new album releases: David Bowie, Ariel Pink, TV On The Radio and more

Plus new albums from Fryars, Andy Stott, Buzzcocks, Dan Bodan and Fugazi

David Bowie, Ariel Pink and TV On The Radio lead this week’s new album releases.

Bowie releases compilation album ‘Nothing Has Changed’. The album features new songs ‘Sue (Or In A Season Of Crime)’ and ‘Tis A Pity She’s A Whore’ alongside the previously unreleased ‘Let Me Sleep Beside You’ from the ‘Toy’ album sessions.

The download-only ‘Your Turn To Drive’ will be making its debut on CD and the 2001 re-recording of the 1971 outtake ‘Shadow Man’ is included too. Click here for a full tracklist for the 3CD release.


Meanwhile, TV On The Radio release their fifth album, ‘Seeds’. The album is the US band’s first since 2011’s ‘Nine Types Of Light’ and their first since the death of bass player Gerard Smith, who was diagnosed with lung cancer shortly after finishing work on ‘Nine Types Of Light’.

The US band recently revealed the video for new single ‘Happy Idiot’, starring Karen Gillan plus Paul ‘Pee-Wee Herman’ Reubens as a racing driver suffering a mental breakdown.

Ariel Pink, meanwhile, releases ‘Pom Pom’ today. The album is the 10th studio release by the LA musician (real name Ariel Marcus Rosenberg), but the first to be put out under a solo guise rather than as Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti.

‘Pom Pom’ clocks in at 69 minutes across 17 tracks and will be released through 4AD. Ariel Pink’s last record was 2012’s ‘Mature Themes’.

Elsewhere, there are new records from Andy Stott, Buzzcocks, Dan Bodan, Fugazi and Paul Smith and Peter Brewis, while Fryars releases his long awaited second album, ‘Power’.
