Videos. Peter Gabriel, Rihanna, Miossec… What albums to expect in 2023?
OWNAttention, heavyweights: after two lackluster years, the record music industry expects to see lots of big names crashing onto the streams and vinyl highways in 2023. Across all genres of popular music. A quick overview of the upcoming album.
Song. Étienne Daho, always class
With a unique ability to reach the general public and the most discerning listeners, Etienne Daho is a special case. Six years after “Blitz” and twilight hedonism, Rennais, 66, had to publish “Tirer la nuit vers les étoiles”, 12e studio album, starting next month.
It’s from Miosec has been announced, and its title – “Simplifier” – says a lot: the Brest native has taken his music to extremes. The desire for healthy asceticism to better catalyze emotions. Registered at three, it will also be 12e album and will be released on February 17th.
We will previously find “Modern Life” by Great Sophia (released on January 13th), and we will be waiting for new releases from Veronique SansonArthur H… And even the possible return of MC Solaar.
Among the youngest, we are waiting for a very sexy album Kalika23, author of a duet with Yelle, and first long form (“Look at me”, January 27) from Pierre de Maere, a total artist from Brussels. First big hit of the year?
Rap and R’n’B. Rihanna l’Arlesienne
It was almost a joke: since 2017, the American-Caribbean singer Rihanna promises a release soon from 9e studio-album. Without ever posting anything new. Will this time be the right one? To say he was expected to be on the turn would be an understatement.
Miley Cyruswho gave a flamboyant New Year’s Eve gig to American audiences, has announced a new single, “Flowers”, and a new album titled “Endless Summer Vacation”, slated for release on March 10.
Americans also announced Cardi B.’s novelties, Dua LipaFrank Ocean, A$AP Rocky…
Stone. Metallica is back
Metallica had not released a studio album in eight years. The biggest metal band in the world will return with “72 Seasons” on April 14, just a few weeks with two French concerts of the American quartet at the Stade de France.
The medicine unveiled five songs from his long-awaited new album, “Songs Of A Lost World”, which has been delayed and is expected to be discovered by fans in 2023.
by his side, Depeche modemourning in 2022 the loss of one of its founding members, keyboardist Andrew Fletcher, having to issue “Memento Mori” in the spring, shortly before the expected start of his world tour on July 4 at the Matmut Atlantique stadium in Bordeaux.
Also looking for albums by Italians from Maneskina possible original Rolling Stones album, the Englishman’s new solo album Coombe gasformer Supergrass, “Esconaquito” by Girondin from Jac Ernest… and veteran comebacks peter gabriel, which releases this Friday, January 6th “Panocticom”, the first single off his first album of originals in twenty years! He will give on June 15 in Bordeaux one of his only 3 French concerts.
Pop. Station on Gorillaz
The brilliant Damon Albarn is never satisfied: sailing from group to group (from Blur to The Good, the Bad & the Queen), the British musician has reactivated the project Gorillaz which he co-directed with visual artist Jamie Hewlett. And develop spectacular immersive experiences. “Cracked Island” will be released on February 24 via Parlophone.
We also expect novelty from the highly productive Californians Lana Del Rey (10 March), new David Guetta and even the possibility of a long format for electro pop group The Penelopes with Isabelle Adjani, who will be signing his first album there since his collaboration with Serge Gainsbourg forty years ago!
British star Sam Smith will return on January 27 with “Gloria”, her fourth album, preceded by the single “Unholy” featuring Kim Petras. The successor to “To Die For” (2020), this new album will allow the 30-year-old to further assert his “emotional, sexual and spiritual liberation,” four years after his non-binary exit.
