Published Sep 05, 2011As you gear up for the start of fall, Exclaim.ca has some new music to soundtrack your Labour Day Monday. Check out our Click Hear section to see what's been added this past week.
First up, R&B artist and super-producer Terius Nash (aka The-Dream) has released an 11-track mixtape called 1977. He's made the new material available for free, prompting a string of tweets warning fans to download it while they still can. The mixtape features appearances from Big Sean, Casha and Pharrell.
Rapper Lil B also released a new album for free this week. I Forgive You is the follow-up to June's I'm Gay (I'm Happy).
Only a short time after British hardcore band Gallows revealed that former Alexisonfire guitarist Wade MacNeil would be their new singer, new track "True Colours" has surfaced. Just 40 seconds in length, the song is available on the band's website or you can watch the video (featuring lots of shit being blown up) at Exclaim.ca.
While Gallows have gained a new frontman, the mastermind behind Oasis is branching out on his own. A second track from Noel Gallagher's first solo project Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds, "If I had a Gun," is now available to hear. Check out the previously released video for "The Death of You and Me" while you're at it.
French electronic act M83 are returning with a new double album Hurry Up, We're Dreaming, out October 18, but the album's "Intro" featuring Zola Jesus can be streamed from Click Hear this week. And finally, alt-country's Ryan Adams has covered Iron Maiden's "Wasted Years." The acoustic redo follows last week's debut of "Lucky You" from upcoming album Ashes & Fire, out October 11 on PAX-AM/Capitol Records.
Get these albums, tracks and videos, plus more, over in Exclaim.ca's Click Hear section this week.
