Andy Shauf drops Norm, which much like his 2016 release The Party is a character based journey. Shauf explains that “The character of Norm is introduced in a really nice way… But the closer you pay attention to the record, the more you’re going to realise that it’s sinister.” The body features previously released track, Wasted on You and sees him embark on a US and Canada tour which kicked off this week.

American rock band Paramore released their sixth studio album and first in almost six years, This Is Why. The record contains the previously released title track.

Yo La Tengo released This Stupid World, their first full-length album since 2020’s We Have Amnesia Sometimes. The body includes previously released song Fallout, and comes with a tour announcement, which will see them land in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Europe this year. 

American singer/songwriter Rebecca Black is known for her 2011 debut and viral hit Friday, followed by her faultless reinvention and reintroduction onto the music scene. The pop icon is back with her debut full length album, Let Her Burn featuring previously released singles; Look At You and Crumb.

Pierce The Veil release The Jaws of Life, their first record since 2016’s Misadventures which peaked at #12 on the ARIA Albums Chart. On The Jaws of Life, the outfit stated; “This album has truly brought us closer than we’ve ever been”.
