New Releases Tuesday: July 16

Pet Shop BoysWelcome to New Releases Tuesday on WERS. Every Tuesday we’ll take a look around the music scene and bring you updates on, you guessed it, the new albums coming out this week.

MAYER HAWTHORNE, WHERE DOES THIS DOOR GO

Where Does This Door Go is the third studio album for multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter, producer, rapper, Mayer Hawthorne. The 34-year-old’s previous albums had a fair amount of soul behind them, but on this new album has Hawthorne experimenting with different styles. Hawthorne’s latest album features collaborations with super-star producer Pharrell Williams, Kendrick Lamar, and singer Jessie Ware. Mayer Hawthorne has evolved from an underground indie-soul singer to a large up-and-coming artist.

PET SHOP BOYS, ELECTRIC

This is the twelfth album from English new wave duo Pet Shop Boys. It is also their first release not on Parlophone and is being released on the duo’s own label, x2. The duo embarked on a worldwide tour in promotion for Electric this past May in Santiago, Chile. The album will also be released in four different formats: CD, digital download, Playbutton, and LP.

SARA BAREILLES, THE BLESSED UNREST

The Blessed Unrest is the third release from Sara Bareilles on Epic Records and her fourth album in total. In February earlier this year, Bareilles posted a video on YouTube announcing that she was in the process of making a new record. The Blessed Unrest was recorded in NYC and LA using the legendary Electric Lady Studio while being co-produced by John O’Mahony and Kurt Uenala.
