So we’ve waved goodbye to 2013 – and what a way to finish a great year of music here by counting down our HOT VOX Top 10. Now we’re into the new year and the music industry is buzzing as to what 2014 will bring. So what is everyone excited about, and what are we looking forward to?
In terms of releases, we have several throwbacks being rekindled at some point. Most imminently, Bruce Springsteen with his new album ‘High Hopes’ released this month. Stevie Wonder is gracing us with two new releases this year, but the big question of all is whether 2014 will be the year that Spice Girls make their epic comeback!
Some huge names that must be sweating it right now as they put the final finishing touches to set-to-be ground-breaking albums for the year; U2, Adele (who may or may not confuse us with a different age to album title) and the 2013 smasher Get Lucky’s Pharell Williams.
Some ones that we’ll be excited to watch? Adult Jazz release later this month (see earlier blog about this exciting new band), Sampha and Parquet Courts, both of which have ramped up a lot of hype during 2013, a cracking collaboration between James Blake & Chance The Rapper all topped off with a most likely controversial number from Kayne.
And that only scratches the surface…
