This Week on Let’s Loop
The big news this week is the return of Frank Ocean. Finally. The comeback of the R&B superstar had been promised for so long it became a meme and even spawned an app that texted you when the album was finally out. Well, this time it’s for real & not only has he delivered Blond — the follow up to his stunning debut album, Channel ORANGE — but also a visual album called Endless (both are streaming exclusively on Apple Music).
In other comeback news, Metallica announced their 10th album and shared the lead single, Hardwired. This is their first new music since 2011’s Lulu (the less said about their collaborative project with Lou Reed the better) and, thankfully, it’s a return to form.
This week also brought us another stunner from The Tallest Man On Earth, a summer smash from Kate Nash, album details and a new track from Danny Brown, a collaboration between Mr. Oizo and Skrillex, a new Pixies track, a reminder of why EXES and Anna Of The North are 2 of the hottest new bands right now, another hit from Carly Rae Jepsen, and lots more.
