New Walk the Moon album “was not necessarily a smooth ride,” says frontman

Image Group LA/ABCWe don't have a lot of details about Walk the Moon's new album, other than the fact that it's due in October and the first single is called "One Foot."  But frontman Nick Petricca says it's the most "raw" and "vulnerable" music they've made, partly due to the changes in the group's personal lives. Last year, the "Shut Up and Dance" hitmakers cut their tour short so Nick could go back home and take care of his ailing dad, who eventually passed away.  While he was struggling with that loss, Nick says, he was also struggling with his own personal identity. "My love life was upside down," he tells Entertainment Weekly. "I was exploring my spirituality and my sexuality."  Meanwhile, he says, bass player Kevin Ray was getting married. "Coming back together, we had to navigate a lot of that stuff," Nick explains. "This album is based around looking into the unknown and realizing that it could all go to s**t or it could be the best thing in your life. This record, even more than the last one, is really raw lyrically, while the sound seems more epic." Petricca adds that the band is "reaching higher and further with each sound, but the lyrics are closer to the heart...we dug deeper and we've been more vulnerable here than we have been on any other record." "[The new album] is this awesome opportunity to reestablish ourselves and let people know we’re a rock & roll band," he says. "Making the record was not necessarily a smooth ride, but it’s the most excited we’ve ever been about our music." Copyright © 2017, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.

Lorde shares her love for Phil Collins, Paul Simon & Fleetwood Mac on “WTF” podcast

Credit: Brendan WalterWhile guesting on the new episode of the WTF podcast, Lorde revealed her love for an unlikely musician: Phil Collins. "My favorite pop males are the guys that sound like a combination of your boyfriend and your dad," she told host Marc Maron. "And that's Phil." When Maron wasn't convinced, Lorde sang part of Collins' song "Take Me Home." Along with Collins, Lorde named Paul Simon -- whose song she recently covered in concert -- and Fleetwood Mac as some of her favorite artists. Also during the episode, she talked about synesthesia -- the condition she has that causes her to "see" sounds as colors -- and how that impacted the making of her new album, Melodrama. Lorde will play the Life Is Beautiful festival in Las Vegas later this month, and she'll kick off a headlining North American tour next March. Copyright © 2017, ABC Radio. All rights reserved.
