Um novo álbum dos The Sisters of Mercy deve gerar muito interesse para um determinado segmento do público ouvinte de música, mas, se você não estiver familiarizado com a política da banda de trabalhar com gravadoras e produzir novo material, não espere que um novo lançamento aconteça tão cedo.
Jimi Hendrix pretendia lançar seu quarto álbum de estúdio como um LP duplo ou triplo antes do Natal de 1970. De junho a agosto de 1970, ele fez um bom progresso na realização do álbum planeado no seu novo Electric Lady Studios. Muitas músicas foram mixadas nos dias 20, 22 e 24 de agosto. Quatro dessas mixagens foram consideradas versões definitivas e foram apresentadas na festa de abertura do Electric Lady em 26 de agosto. Hendrix morreu em 18 de setembro, deixando para trás uma enorme quantidade de gravações não lançadas em vários estágios de conclusão. É impossível saber o que Hendrix teria mudado e o que ele realmente teria lançado, mas há alguma documentação das configurações do álbum que ele tinha em mente.
Michael Jackson’s unreleased album to go under the hammer next week
The rare collection of mostly unreleased songs will have a minimum bid of $50,000.
Jul 13, 2017
LOS ANGELES: An album containing nine unheard Michael Jackson songs will be auctioned off by New York auction house Gotta Have Rock and Roll later this month.
The rare collection of mostly unreleased songs will be going under the hammer on July 19 with the minimum bid of USD 50,000.
The album, with the title ‘Bible’ handwritten on its surface, consists of 12 finished tracks, all with finished vocals, reported Rolling Stone.
The disc is in “very good condition” and in the possession of the late singer’s personal assistant “whose family was very close to Michael for many years, travelling all over the world with him.”
Organisers expect the final bid to reach USD 1 million, although the owner later will not have rights to the songs and cannot distribute or reproduce them.
Jim Morrison died in July 1971 aged 27. He was found in the bathtub of a Paris apartment. At the time, Morrison and The Doors were mid-way through the recording process of their seventh album ‘Other Voices’.
Following his death, the remaining trio – keyboardist Ray Manzarek, guitarist Robby Krieger and drummer John Densmore, continued the recording with Krieger and Manzarek sharing vocal duties.
The guitarist confirmed in May last year that new material was in the works, with his bandmember Richard Fortus checking in earlier this month to say he hoped new music from the band would emerge this year.
And in a new interview with Guitar where he was asked if he’d be willing to share any new information about the record, Slash replied: “There’s been no definitive answer on anything and I’ll just keep keep to that.
“Stuff is happening, but there are no specifics. More than anything, it’s because of the nature of the industry right now.
“It’s just like, how do you want to do this? I mean there’s material and there’s recording and there’s shit going on, but we’re not really sure what we’re doing with it right now.”
When it was pointed out that the music industry has changed a lot since the last time Guns N’ Roses released an album, Slash responded: “Yeah! And there’s a handful people who said, ’Make a record and go old school.’ And there’s a handful of people that are like, ’We don’t even know what buying a record is any more!’”
