5 Billion in Diamonds - 5 Billion in Diamonds

New band for Garbage member Butch Vig, the man who produced Nirvana. All of the band have strong indie credentials including Ebbott Lundberg from Soundtrack of Our Lives.

Shelby Lynne & Allison Moorer - Not Dark Yet

Sisters and singers release their highly anticipated first album together. Covers on the album include Merle Haggard, Nick Cave and Kurt Cobain..

Mr Jukes - God First

Side project of Bombay Bicycle Club frontman Jack Steadman. This is different from BBC’s usual output and draws on Steadman’s love of jazz, soul and funk.

Queens of the Stone Age - Villains

Queens of the Stone Age’s seventh album s produced by Mark Ronson, a rather unlikely choice who is more used to working with the likes of Adele and Amy Winehouse. Singer Josh Homme has described Villains as “uptempo”.
