Rounding up the latest release news…

Hey, remember when we said that Ed Sheeran was going to share a track from his new album? Well, it was only yesterday, so I’d hope so. You should also remember that we said that the song was going to get its first airing on Zane Lowe’s Radio 1 show that very night (ie still yesterday). And it did. And now, because we like the idea of being “da bomb”, here it is for you to listen to:

Now, would anyone care to know the title of gods-of-rock Mastodon‘s (pictured) forthcoming LP? Okay, fine, it’s ‘Once More Round The Sun’. The band’s vocalist Troy Sanders talked about it a whole lot to Paste magazine earlier this year, saying in a just-published chat with the mag that it’s “all over the world as far as themes go”, but still has “a few sprinkles of epic goodness”. While it’s still without a solid coming-out-date, or an introductory track, at this point, you can read up on Sanders’ Paste interview and take a wild guess at what on earth it could sound like via this link

Messrs Brian Eno and Karl Hyde have improved on their confirming earlier this year that they’d made a joint LP titled ‘Someday World’ by releasing a new preview of it in the shape of ‘Daddy’s Car’. The song follows the lead of wishy-washy ‘Someday World’ offshoot ‘The Satellites’, and is available to listen to now, in advance of its parent long-player’s release on 5 May, via the magic of YouTube:

Napolian, who had collaborative spots on Kelela’s excellent ‘Cut 4 Me’ single ‘Guns N Synths’, and A$AP Ferg’s debut LP proper ‘Trap Lord’, will release a solo LP titled ‘Incursio’ later this year. In fact, it’s arriving on 26 May, via Daniel Lopatin aka Oneohtrix Point Never’s Software Recording Co label, an imprint of Mexican Summer.

Draw from one of its tracks, ‘DARPA’, right now:

Sculptural artist-producer Bernholz, who won our approval back in 2012 for his standout track ‘Austerity Boy’, is soon to add a double A-side single, ‘My History/Alive!’, to the trail of tracks coming off his debut LP ‘How Things Are Made’. It’ll be in stock as a cost-nothing download on 28 Apr, and you can stream both tracks, also for free, right now, here:

And oh, another thing. Little-known band Coldplay have a video out, for their new single ‘Magic’, which will feature on their new LP ‘Ghost Stories’. It’s directed by that Jonas Åkerlund man, who did ‘Moves Like Jagger’ and other things too, and stars Chris Martin posing as a “brutish husband”, which is quite unfortunate timing, I guess. ‘Ghost Stories’ is out to spook the world out of its wits on 9 May. But before that, you can catch Chris acting like a bastard, over and over, in the ‘Magic’ vid:
