Bob Dylan – Together Thrugh Life
Bob Dylan's new studio album will be released on April 27th in the UK. Together Though Life, produced by Jack Frost, was recorded late last year, prompted by the composition of a new song, "Life Is Hard," which was written for a forthcoming film by French director Oliver Dahan (La Vie En Rose) The new album will be the 46th release from Bob Dylan, and follows 2006's Platinum album Modern Times, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top 200 and reached the top of the charts in seven additional countries and the Top 5 in 22 countries around the world. Bob Dylan's three previous studio albums have been universally hailed as among the best of his storied career, achieving new levels of commercial success and critical acclaim for the artist.
The Platinum-selling Time Out Of Mind from 1997 earned multiple Grammy Awards, including Album Of The Year, while "Love and Theft" continued Dylan's Platinum streak and earned several Grammy nominations and a statue for Best 1.

Manic Street Preachers – Journal For Plague Lovers
All 13 songs on the new record feature lyrics left to us by Richey. The brilliance and intelligence of the lyrics dictated that we had to finally use them.
The use of language is stunning and topics include The Grande Odalisque by Ingres, Marlon Brando, Giant Haystacks, celebrity, consumerism and dysmorphia, all reiterating the genius and intellect of Richard James Edwards. The record is scheduled for release on 18th May and will be available on CD, deluxe 2 CD, download and LP.
An original piece of Jenny Saville's art is the cover for Journal for Plague Lovers, one of her paintings also graced the cover of 1994's The Holy Bible.
