Cold War Kids - Hold My Home

Looking ahead to next week's chart, we are excited to present an Early Listen for Hold My Home, the fifth studio album from American indie rock band Cold War Kids which comes just a year after 2013's Dear Miss Lonelyhearts. The record was produced by guitarist Dan Gallucci alongside Lars Stalfors (Mars Volta and Juliette Lewis) at the band's own studio in San Jose, California. The album is available now and you can watch the video for the lead single All This Could Be Yours here.

Bush - Man On The RunMarking 20 years since their multi-platinum debut Sixteen Stone catapulted them to megastardom, Man On The Run, the sixth studio album from the British alternative rockers Bush is the follow-up to 2011's The Sea of Memories and the second to feature the new lineup which frontman Gavin Rossdale formed in 2010 after an eight-year hiatus. Produced by Nick Raskulinecz (Deftones, Mastodon) and Jay Baumgardner (Helmet, Lacuna Coil), the album sees the quartet continue with their patented heavy, dark, melancholic grunge rock sound. The album is available now and you can watch the visually stunning video for the lead single The Only Way Out here.

On NostalgiaAnnie Lennox pays tribute to some of the greatest artists of the 20th century – including Hoagy Carmichael, Duke Ellington, George Gershwin, Billie Holiday and Screamin’ Jay Hawkins – and interprets compositions that have moved her, stripping them down to their emotional and musical core and making them her own. "To have been given the opportunity to record these classic, timeless songs on such a significant label as Blue Note, representing 75 years of legendary jazz history, is truly a privilege for me," said Annie Lennox.

The definitive Primus line-up Les Claypool, guitarist Larry LaLonde, and drummer Tim Alexander - is back together and releasing their first full-length studio set in nearly 20 years, Primus & the Chocolate Factory. 'The recording is about my early perception of the original Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory film,' says Les Claypool. 'The notion wasn't so much to go in and redo the soundtrack note for note as much as it was to utilize the classic elements of the music yet try to reflect some of the darker undertones of the Roald Dahl books.'

Tough Love is the second album from English singer Jessie Ware. The London-based artist began work on the album at the start of 2014, with the likes of Ed Sheeran, Kid Harpoon, Julio Bashmore, and production duo Benzel all credited on the record. Her title track single was debuted as Zane Lowe's Hottest Record on the Earth, and went on to reach the U.K. Top 40.

Sleater-Kinney - Start TogetherSleater-Kinney is an acclaimed, American rock band that formed in Olympia, Washington in 1994. Sleater-Kinney were known for their feminist, left-leaning politics, and were an integral part of the riot grrrl and indie rock scenes in the Pacific Northwest. Start Together is a deluxe box set compiling all seven of Sleater-Kinney's critically-acclaimed albums, plus a 44-page hardcover book and an art print. Each LP is on a different color of vinyl, and this box is the only way to get these albums on colored vinyl. Each album has been freshly remastered by Greg Calbi for this release.  The Limited Edition box set is available now and you can also grab copies of the individual albums which are available as remastered CD and Vinyl versions. Check out this video to see more info on the releases.

Plus there are other great, new releases including The Bsst Day, from Thurston Moore.  The fourth full-length solo release for the Sonic Youth guitarist/singer sees the return to guitar rock with backing from Steve Shelley, My Bloody Valentine's Debbie Googe, and James Sedward. Hip Hop megastar T.I. drops his ninth studio album Paperwork. London based Bear's Den release their much anticipated debut album Islands.  Wallflower is a collection of songs from the late 60's to present day that inspired Diana Krall in her early years. Kiesza releases her debut album, Sound Of A Woman.  Her hit single Hideaway rocketed to the #1 spot in the UK charts earlier this year and remains the fastest-selling debut of year. When Sunn O))) first approached Scott Walker about appearing on their 2009 album Monoliths & Dimensions, they didn't know what it would actually lead to. Four years on, Scott returned with something even more enticing, collaborating on Soused, a body of work he was writing with them in mind. And the masked Iowan nu-metal heroes Slipknot return with their fifth studio album 5: The Gray Chapter, their first in six years and the follow-up to 2008's All Hope Is Gone. It is the first to feature their new (and as yet anonymous) rhythm section, following the departure of drummer Joey Jordison and the untimely death of bassist Paul Gray. Marking a return to a more raw, brutal, dissonant sound reminiscent of their earlier work, the album includes the singles "The Negative One" and "The Devil in I."

Etana - I RiseEtana is the strongest female voice in reggae. Her natural ability for melody and songwriting talents have propelled her to a unique status among reggae fans where she is seen as the successor to Marcia Griffiths. Her new album I Rise is available now for Pre-Order and you can watch the video to the lead single Trigger here.

Sleaford Mods - Chubbed UpIpecac Recordings are introducing the coolest thing to come out of the UK in a long time. With the release of a compilation from Sleaford Mods titled Chubbed Up+.
