Wheatus have just about finished their mammoth UK tour, which they started in early October. We last spoke with founder and lead singer, Brendan B Brown, back in 2016, and he’s managed to find some time in his incredibly busy schedule to set aside a few minutes to chat with us. It was a great catch up, and we talked about their current release, their Christmas EP, ‘Just A Dirtbag Christmas’, their upcoming 20th anniversary edition of their ‘Wheatus’ album, the secret to the staying power of Teenage Dirtbag, and about meeting your heroes.
Last week, British-Irish singer/songwriter Molly Burman released her second EP, the brilliant six-track release, titled ‘Worlds Within Worlds’. Following up her 2021 debut release of ‘Fool Me With Flattery’, the new release has already received widespread critical acclaim for its high production quality and lyrical content, where Burman explores conversational topics such as sexuality, identity and emotions.
Legendary American recording artist Akon has announced his latest EP, titled ‘Afro Freak EP’, which was to be releasing in two days – now, with a day left until the eight-track release hits digital and physical shelves, we can take a further look into what it might be like, and some of the history not only behind the EP itself (which stems back to a previous EP, titled ‘TT Freak’), but the legend who made it as well.
Ringo Starr has announced details for his upcoming EP, ‘Rewind Forward’, set for release later this year. The new project is Starr’s fourth EP release in the last three years, and his first since ‘EP3’ in September 2022. The legendary artist worked with musicians such as long-time friend Paul McCartney and his own All Starr band to produce the new project, which releases October 13th on digital, cassette, CD and vinyl.
