Johnny Pierce to release solo album

2 Dec

Johnny from The Drums is going solo! He’s releasing an album next year which he has written, recorded and produced all by himself. Here’s what he had to say on the subject.

“Some might say it’s strange for a man to bare his soul the way I do on this album, but I wanted to do something that exposed me for who I am even more so than anything I have done with The Drums… I wanted to be as self-indulgent as possible with this album. This is pop done the way I think it should be done”.

 

Big Boi – ‘For Your Sorrows’

14 Oct

Outkast may have been absent for almost half the decade but when they were active they put out two of the best albums of the last ten years. Stankonia is arguably the definitive hip hop album of the 21st century, featuring the classic ‘Ms Jackson’ and ‘BOB’. It’s follow up was the crazy and unpredictable ‘Speakerboxxx/The Love Below’ – essentially two solo albums sold as an Outkast album. Both records still sound unbelievable today. Although we may be waiting a while for a new Outkast record we should expect a new Big Boi solo album soon – although it has been in the works for absolutely ages.

The fantastically titled ‘Sir Lucious Left Foot: The Son of Chico Dusty’ has been close to release for what seems like years and a few songs have been leaked or been previewed including ‘Royal Flush’, ‘Ringtone’ and now ‘For Your Sorrows’ and ‘Shine Blockas’. The songs are certainly classic Big Boi in style if not quite content, they lack a certain magic Andre may have added. It seems like the album may finally be close to release with more news and songs being released every few weeks and when we finally get a release date you can guarentee that this will be one highly anticipated album.
