The old master Carlos Santana had his new album produced by Rick Rubin. He is one of several top musicians who will be releasing new albums this Friday, June 7th.

Stuttgart – The Divine Comedy, Jamie Cullum, Avicii and Andreas Dorau are releasing new albums this Friday, June 7th – just like the old guitar master Carlos Santana.

Carlos Santana traces the soul of African music. He has won over old master Rick Rubin as the producer for his new album. A detailed review of this album will follow later in our offer, here as a teaser:

Before Jamie Cullum, who has long been a regular at the Jazz Open, will perform again this year on the Schlossplatz in Stuttgart, he will present the new album belonging to his tour.

The British pop band around singer Neil Hannon will also go on tour in the fall, but unfortunately they will not come to Stuttgart. Instead, consolation may be donated by their new album, with plenty of advance praise, which will be released as a double CD for the first time in the band’s history.

The experimental rock band from Brooklyn calls their style "Middle-Eastern-Psych-Pop-Snap-Gospel". They indulge in this mix of styles on their sixth album. In the accompanying video it is really colorful.

“Tim”, posthumously completed by his colleagues, is probably the last artistic legacy of Avicii, who died last April. His death caused great consternation worldwide, and the dance floor scene will certainly celebrate him again with this album.

He still has to nibble at his most famous hit, "Fred from Jupiter". On the one hand it made him famous, on the other hand it makes it difficult for him to be perceived as a serious artist. Maybe it will work now with his twelfth album since 1981.

Also fresh on the market is the new album “Who says that ?!” by pop singer Ben Zucker, “Andorra” by Fatoni and “Sju” by the Swedish alternative band Takida. And of course many other albums as well.
