New Release Sampler, 1/14/14
by Linda Ryan | January 14, 2014
Happy New Year, everyone! After a couple of quiet post-holiday weeks, we're happy to present some great new music again. First up, the Boss is back. High Hopes is a collection of unreleased songs Springsteen recorded over the past decade. Be sure to check out the fabulous cover of the The Saints' "Just Like Fire Would," which burns at hot as the original. We also have new albums from Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings (if you need a shot of soul to restore your faith in music, this firecracker offers it up quite effortlessly) and Christian rockers Switchfoot, whose Fading West marks the band's ninth studio project. Lastly, tune in to new singles from country rocker Eric Church, "Pumped Up Kicks" stars Foster the People, and emo vets Taking Back Sunday, plus a smokin' duet from Shakira and Rihanna. Enjoy.
