Let’s just say that when it comes to new music in stores this week, the big news happened early. That’s because Pearl Jam decided to release its latest album, Backspacer, in stores on Sunday rather than the usual Tuesday release.
What’s that you say? Not a big Eddie Vedder fan? How about Harry Connick Jr? He’s just released “Your Songs,” a selection of pop songs that he sings and re-orchestrates. The Beatles “And I Loved Her” with a Latin twist sound appealing? Check it out.
Also out this week: Mum serves up its indie pop on “Sing Along to Songs You Don’t Know”; Jan Garbarek delivers “Dresden: In Concert,” his first-ever live album after 40 years as a bandleader, which offers his quartet playing in the modern jazz idiom; a 20th anniversary edition of The Stone Roses’ self-titled album; and while Kix Brooks and Ronnie Dunn recently decided to end their successful collaboration as Brooks & Dunn, the country duo just released “#1s…and Then Some,” a double-disc best-of-and-then-some collection.
