UPCOMING ALBUMS Death Cab for Cutie, Suede, Flaming Lips and more

It’s a big week for alt-rock fans as Death Cab for Cutie, Suede and The Flaming Lips announce new records.

No exact dates or much information at all has been revealed, but Death Cab For Cutie have released a teaser trailer for their new album. The teaser is soundtracked by new music, and includes the words “August 2018.” While this doesn’t give us a lot to go off, its enough to get us excited for the follow up to 2015’s Kintsugi.

Suede have announced the final album in their trilogy including Bloodsports and Night Thoughts. Set to be titled The Blue Hour it will be out September 21. The band have, like Death Cab, revealed an album teaser, which is our only taste of what the new music might sound like.

The Flaming Lips have announced a big release this week in the form of a compilation titled Greatest Hits Vol. 1. There will also be a deluxe version of the album which will feature B-sides, outtakes and previously released tracks. This will be out June 1, and reissues of two of the bands early albums, Scratching The Door and Seeing The Unseeable will be released on June 29.

In other news, ABBA announced a reunion 35 years after releasing the farewell single Thank You for the Music. They will be releasing new music in December, with I Still Have Faith in You said to be one of the tracks.
