New Music on Freegal

Brand New Music on Freegal

New Music is made available on the Freegal Site just about every day. May 27th is an average day for new releases on the site. Here are some examples of what is new just on Tuesday.

The Ready Set
The Bad and The Better LP

The very up and coming Jordan Mark Witzigreuter is a twenty-four year old Alternative pop singer from Fort Wayne, Indiana. He is the voice behind The Ready Set, and the only band member. This talented young man was in various groups as a young teen then started concentrating on a solo effort at the age of 16. He was signed with Razor & Tie Records this past March and he already has a brand new album that is being released on May 27th entitled The Bad and The Better.  He is also on a worldwide tour.
Allmusic.com describes his LP  by writing : “features bouncy beats and hooks aplenty on every tune”

Trash Talk
No Peace LP

This LP from the punk band Trash Talk has been long awaited. This is their fifth studio album and the first under a new label. The band has toured around the world including Japan and Europe, and they were chosen by Spin Magazine as one of the “Top 5 Metal Bands you Should Know”.

Tumblr Girls (single)

Fresh new rap talent and rising star G-Eazy just graduated from Loyola University with a Bachelor of Science in Music Industry Studies just a couple of years ago. According to MTV.com, he wrote, recorded and produced his own first full length album “Must Be Nice” in 2012 which made #3 on the itunes Hip Hop chart. He was not associated with a label at the time. He has since then signed with a record company and his second LP “These Things Happen” is due out on Freegal and worldwide late this June. In the mean time, his new single “Tumblr Girls” has a May 27th release date.

One Direction
You & I  (single)

The official release date of  “You and I” by the British pop sensation One Direction is also 5/27.  The ballad features little more than acoustic guitar and the voices of the band members. It certainly shows their vocal abilities. According to Billboard.com, this band is the first in history to debut at number one in the United States with their first three albums.

Just a few of the other 5/27 releases available on Freegal and at retailers throughout the U.S. include:

Cher Lloyd- Sorry I’m Late LP
