Blondie Releases third single from their forthcoming album

Blondie have released ‘Long Time’ – the third single from their forthcoming album ‘Pollinator’ – which is available to stream and download now, after its exclusive debut on BBC Radio 2’s Ken Bruce show.

With the album being released on May 5th, this single follows the first two releases; the upbeat Studio 54-esque single ‘Fun’ co-written by Dave Sitek (TV On The Radio), and the dark, alluring track ‘My Monster’, written for the band by The Smiths guitarist Johnny Marr. 

As an extra celebration, 1000 7″ copies of ‘Long Time’ will be available to buy via participating independent record stores. This edition is backed with ‘The Breaks’, a brand new track written by Chris Stein and Debbie Harry in the album sessions at New York’s famed recording studio The Magic Shop, before its closure.

NEW ORDER LAUNCHES NEW 'STRAY DOG' BEER

One of Manchester’s most legendary exports, New Order, have joined forces with Moorhouse’s Brewery of Burnley to launch an exciting new beer, set for release later this autumn.
 
The premium 4.2% beer, named Stray Dog (after a track on the band’s recent album Music Complete), is a refreshing and clean tasting golden ale with hints of citrus fruit and lychee, all balanced by a subtle bitterness.  Brewed using American Cascade, Centennial and Willamette hops, with the finest English Maris Otter malt, it was developed by head brewer Dan Casaru at Moorhouse’s new £5m state-of-the-art brewery after a series of tastings earlier this spring. 
New Order commented : “It’s been a pleasure to work with Moorhouse’s of Burnley on our first foray into the brewing business. Even more so that they’re celebrating their 150th anniversary, and have such a rich heritage in the north west” 
 
The beer will be available exclusively in Mitchells & Butlers pubs from August Bank Holiday weekend, ahead of national availability in September.

A new BBC Sessions release for Led Zeppelin

Nearly 20 years ago, Led Zeppelin introduced BBC Sessions, an acclaimed two-disc set of live recordings selected from the band’s appearances on BBC radio between 1969 and 1971. This year, on September 16th, the band will unveil THE COMPLETE BBC SESSIONS, an updated version of the collection that’s been newly remastered with supervision by Jimmy Page and expanded with eight unreleased BBC recordings, including three that were rescued from a previously “lost” session from 1969.

Musical highlights on this new collection include the debut of a long-lost radio session that has achieved near-mythic status among fans. Originally broadcast in April 1969, the session included three songs: “I Can’t Quit You Baby,” “You Shook Me,” and the only recorded performance of “Sunshine Woman.”

Also included are two unreleased versions of both “Communication Breakdown” and “What Is And What Should Never Be.” Separated by two years, the performances vividly demonstrate the young band’s rapid evolution over a short period of time.

Jimmy Page spoke about the band’s growth in an interview with Guitar World: “The BBC Sessions show in graphic detail just how organic the group was. Led Zeppelin was a band that would change things around substantially each time it played…We were becoming tighter and tighter, to the point of telepathy.”
