On August 25th, the third Arctic Monkeys' album will be released. We have already learned who will be producing the album. We also have seen the track list and know what the Monkeys' music will sound like this time around. All that is left to be discovered is the title of this upcoming release... And the title was revealed just recently. The new Arctic Monkeys album's title is Humbug. Humbug... Not a very attractive name, but at least it's shorter than Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not.
The Discovery website is now up and running. You can now listen to two new tracks by Vampire Weekend's Rostam Batmanglij and Ra Ra Riot's Wes Miles, the duo that is Discovery. Enter your email address on the website if you want to receive updates concerning their impending debut, LP. Remember, the release date of this peppy electro-pop album is July 7th. Keep checking BONA FIDE and their website for updates until then.
Regina Spektor's fifth album, Far is almost available, so make sure to pick it up on June 23rd. For now, you can go here to hear the new song, "Folding Chair" and watch three music videos for the tracks "Laughing With", "Dance Anthem of the 80s", and "Eet". You can also pre-order the album or LP. I predict that Regina will not disappoint. If you want to hear some of these new songs from Far live, she will be performing at the Beacon Theatre in NYC this Wednesday. Hopefully BONA FIDE will be able to stop by.
