Mark Knopfler's long-awaited double-disc 'Privateering' album is finally coming out in the U.S. on Sept. 10. You don't have to wait that long for a sneak peek at the record, though: we're premiering one song, 'I Used to Could,' right here at UCR.
Bon Jovi guitarist Richie Sambora isn't currently working with the band, but that doesn't mean he isn't working. Sambora surprised everyone by dropping the link to a new song on Twitter recently. 'Come Back as Me' came on Monday, during a conversation with his followers.
The familiar-sounding piano that opens 'Home Again,' Elton John's first new solo music since 2006's 'The Captain & the Kid' album, instantly recalls the singer's hit material from the '70s, when he was the biggest pop star on the planet. But it's warmer and more worn-in. It's Elton John, all right. But it's Elton John 40 years later, returning to a comfort zone with history behind him.
It's not quite accurate to say Primal Scream use Robert Plant for backing vocals on 'Elimination Blues.' The Led Zeppelin lead singer is more of an instrument, used to sweeten an experimental blues song. It's a bold move to ignore the temptation to put Plant in a starring role.
If the eight songs on Black Sabbath's just-released '13' aren't enough new reunited Sabbath for you, four bonus tracks are available from a couple of different places, adding 20 minutes to the album's 53-minute running time. But how do these bonus songs stack up against the rest of '13'?
The Tedeschi Trucks Band has revealed a song called 'Part of Me' as the first offering from their upcoming 'Made Up Mind' album. The uptempo, soulful blues track features a revved up Susan Tedeschi singing over husband Derek Trucks' signature guitar. A powerful horn and backup vocal section lay a foundation for the vibrant new cut, available to stream through Ultimate Classic Rock.
Several weeks ago, Queensryche offered fans the first early glimpse of their upcoming album with the new track 'Redemption' -- and now they're following up with another pre-release single, titled 'Fallout.'
'Don't Want Lies,' the debut single from the Stephen Stills-led group the Rides is best viewed through a blues lens as opposed to a rock lens. Kenny Wayne Shepherd's guitar dominates a four-and-a-half-minute long slow-jam, and it would be even better if he soloed from start to finish.
