Quite a few artists have either confirmed or hinted at upcoming new music recently:
• Queens of the Stone Age have teased fans of news on new material by sharing photos from the recording studio.
The band have reportedly been at work on the long-awaited follow-up to 2013’s ‘…Like Clockwork’ for some time and it was previously revealed that new music would be made available later this year.
• Royal Blood have announced their first UK show of 2017.
The Brighton duo will perform at this year’s Eden Sessions in Cornwall, therefore suggesting new material from their anticipated second album is ready and on its way. Keep an eye out for forthcoming Royal Blood tour dates.
• London Grammar have unveiled yet another taster for their upcoming second album, by releasing new song and video ‘Big Picture’.
They returned with swooping comeback single ‘Rooting for You’ when on tour in Australia.
