A historic tour for Paul Weller and Billie Eilish’s new album were among our biggest headlines last week.

Paul Weller will perform concerts in North America later this year in support of his new album “66”.

With the LP due out May 24, the tour is scheduled to kick off in Red Bank, New Jersey on September 24, and is scheduled to travel to New York the following night for a show at the Kings Theater in Brooklyn.

The first Canadian concert is booked for the 19th at History in Toronto, and the tour will conclude with California concerts at the end of the month in San Francisco, El Cajon, Anaheim and Los Angeles.

The Lemon Twigs have revealed the “thematic backbone” of their new album A Dream Is All We Know.

With the LP due out May 3, How Can I Love It More? is the band’s attempt to bridge the gap between “the professional songwriting of Brill Building and the more offbeat writing style of the post-Sgt Pepper psychedelic scene”.

“There are a lot of musical ideas but it’s still a catchy pop song,” added Brian and Michael D’Addario. “We’re so excited for people to hear it!” »

Liam Gallagher and John Squire were musical guests on The Tonight Show last week as they played I’m A Wheel from their recent self-titled LP.

The appearance served as an appetizer for the duo’s short U.S. leg of the tour at Brooklyn’s Paramount, following a U.K. tour that Live4ever captured last month at London’s Kentish Town Forum.

“The band consists of stalwart Christian Madden on keyboards, Barrie Cadogan on bass (with an incredibly oversized amp), and Joey Waronker on drums,” our review reads.

Billie Eilish has confirmed that her new album Hit Me Hard And Soft will be released on May 17.

The formats available from this date will reflect “an ongoing effort to minimize waste and combat climate change”, they will be “limited variants” of the album whose physical versions will be made from 100% materials recyclable.

Hit Me Hard And Soft is another collaboration with Finneas, and will not be preceded by any single.

Mitski rounded out the lineup for this year’s All Points East festival.

She will be joined at London’s Victoria Park on Sunday August 18 by special guests including beabadoobee, TV Girl, Ethel Cain, Arlo Parks and Wasia Project.

The headliner was part of Live4ever’s Best Of 2023 series following the September release of The Land Is Inhospitable And So Are We.

St Vincent have added a few UK and European dates to the North American tour announced last month.

The shows will take place ahead of previously confirmed appearances at Best Kept Secret and Northside festivals, and are set to debut in the UK at SXW Bristol on May 31.

A concert follows at the Royal Albert Hall in London on June 1.
