Once again, here are a list of albums streaming this weekend for your listening pleasure. These albums drop on Tuesday, so have a sneak peak now.
- Canadian legend Bruce Cockburn will be releasing a box set of music from across his near 40 years in music. Rumours of Glory contains over 100 songs from his career plus 16 rare and previously unreleased tracks. CBC Music is streaming 14 of those 16 rare/unreleased songs.
- Last week, Neil Diamond released a new album bedecked in a full beard. Mirroring that look is Canadian iconic songwriter and producer Daniel Lanois, whose Flesh and Machine melds rock and ambient. Hear it on CBC Music and NPR.
- Everyone’s favourite human hamster and his pals are back with With a Little Help from My Fwends (that’s not a typo). Hear Wayne Coyne and company’s arguably most ambitious album, as they (re-)interpret The Beatles’ iconic album, Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. Stream it on NPR.
- Indie-folk/alt-country sister act Lily & Madeleine will release their highly anticipated sophomore album, Fumes. The folks at NPR are streaming it.
- Bringing many of us back to our youths is Medicine, who return with Home Everywhere. NPR once again is streaming the album, which sees the band expand its musical horizons.
- Montreal-based Ought, who released one of our favourite albums earlier this year, returns with their second album, Once More with Feeling. Hear the album on Pitchfork Advance.
- His Name is Alive will release Tecuciztecatl. It just might be the album that makes this band that formed nearly 30 years ago indie rock stars. Pitchfork Advance is your destination.
- Last but not least is Yusuf / Cat Stevens. The iconic singer-songwriter’s Tell’em I’m Gone is his first album in 5 years. CBC Music and NPR have it.
