This week we’ve received album news from Empress Of, gotten word of an intriguing new supergroup featuring Julien Baker, Phoebe Bridgers and Lucy Dacus and gotten a whole bunch of singles from UK lads Disclosure. 

Lorely Rodriguez, better known as Empress Of, has announced her second album. It’s called Us and it’s out October 19. “It’s been a long two and a half years making this project,” Rodriguez wrote on social media. Rodriguez released her first Empress Of full-length, Me, in September 2015. Listen to new singles Trust Me Baby and In Dreams below.

Julien Baker, Phoebe Bridgers and Lucy Dacus have teamed up to become boygenius and have announced that they will be releasing a self titled, debut EP on November 9. The supergroup trio have already released three tracks, Bite The Hand, Me & My Dog and Stay Down. Speaking about the group’s formation, Baker explained, “When we met, Lucy and Phoebe and I were in similar places in our lives and our musical endeavors, but also had similar attitudes toward music that engendered an immediate affinity.” Listen to Bite The Hand here.

After announcing last year that they’d be taking a break from music, Disclosure have done anything but. They’ve just dropped three new tracks, set to be from their third album. The new singles are titled Moonlight, Where Angels Fear To Tread and Love Can Be So Hard, and while there is no more information about an album, we are bound to get some soon. Listen to Love Can Be So Hard below.
