Kanye West is releasing his new album in less than twenty four hours. Now in its fourth incarnation, the rapper has finally revealed what we hope will be the final, confirmed, concrete name and track list for the album.


The initials "TLOP" were recently teased as his final album name, and we've now been told that this is an anagram for The Life Of Pablo.


Yep. The Life Of Pablo.




The track list has also changed, and has been cut back down to ten tracks, or eleven if you count the two parts of "Father Stretch My Hands."

The album is being premiered at Madison Square Garden in New York City and is to be live streamed in cinemas across the world, as a joint premiere of the album and his Yeezy Season 3 fashion line.


Previously, West had suggested So Help Me God, Swish and Waves as album names.

Purity Ring, a Canadian electronic music duo consisting of Megan James (vocals) and Corin Roddick (instrumentals), have just teased new music. Formed in 2010, the band released their first album, Shrines, in 2012. The album was then followed by another in 2015, Another Eternity. Could 2017 be the year for yet another new Purity Ring album? 


Teasers


Fans get pretty excited when a band posts a photo of themselves in the studio, as was the case in early July when Purity Ring did just that.

The photo was followed up with a video clip containing new music. With it, is an animation of an ashen figure walking across a desert landscape; the music gives inertia to the haunting atmosphere and could mean that Purity Ring are moving back to their 'spooky sound' like that of Shrines

A Premier?


The last we've heard from Purity Ring is a Tweet that contains a date and time, including the Twitter handle of Zane Lowe's show on Beats 1 Radio. All of this together, leads one to believe that we'll be hearing brand new Purity Ring today at 12:30.

If you miss it, be sure to head back to Indie Shuffle; we'll try get it up as soon as it's out. Until then, we've given you a selection of Purity Ring's top four most popular songs on the site to choose from below.

Vampire Weekend, the much-loved band from New York, have been leaving fans guessing as to when their next album will arrive. So when we sniff even the tiniest scent of album-news on the winds, it gets pretty exciting. With that being said, Vampire Weekend may just be in studio...right now. But first:


Vampire Weekend New Album


On March 24th of this year, lead vocalist and guitarist Ezra Koenig posted a picture of a desktop folder labeled Mitsubishi Macchiato. In the caption, he explains how often he is asked about Vampire Weekend's new album. He also detailed their activities per year, and lastly, he informed fans about two songs they were working on and the possible title of the new album – Mitsubishi Macchiato.

Vampire Weekend In Studio


Today (July 20th) Ezra posted an Instagram story suggesting the band is in studio, giving fans a 24-hour window in which to hear the news. Thanks to Indie Shuffle, that window has been extended:

What Does This Mean For An Album Release Date? 


Fans thought the band were in studio quite some time ago, lending hope to a 2017 release. While chances of this happening do exist, being in studio now makes a Spring 2018 release more likely. Although, we can't ignore the fact that Vampire Weekend could be in studio now for mixing and mastering rather than recording. A Reddit user has said that 'On his (Ezra's) Apple Music radio show from this past Sunday he mentioned that he let his co-host listen to 9 tracks from the new album, so they seem to be fairly far along.'


What To Expect On The New Album


Since the band's last album, Rostam Batmanglij (a former member) has left the band. While Ezra is the singer-songwriter who ensures Vampire Weekend creates hugely catchy tracks, Rostam was the producer-arranger that elevated each song. So with all this in mind, Vampire Weekend's new album will probably sound vastly different than what we've come to know and love.


Only time will tell, so while you wait, listen to some of their former tracks below.
