Madonna : 2021 was rich in epic musical returns, which is Zemfira’s cam-back, the real revival of the Kino group without Viktor Tsoi, the new ABBA release, the revival of the Boatswain and the Tramp duet by Garik Sukachev and Alexander F. Sklyar, the scandalous album of Oksimiron … ” MK “spoke in detail about these and other” highlights “. In the meantime, the flywheel of musical activity, apparently, is not going to slow down, 2022 will continue the trend of loud returns and resonant musical utterances. Low start Placebo, 50 Cent, RHCP, Madonna, Ivan Dorn and other artists. About what musical gifts are in store for Santa Claus and Santa Claus – in the review “MK”.
Ivan Dorn – Dorndom
Ivan Dorn, a trendsetter of the avant-garde disco fashion in the past, has not released an album for four years, and finally announced a new disc. The release will take place at the end of May 2022, now the musician is finalizing the details. The artist promised fans to focus on the lyrics so that songs can be listened to not only for the sake of music, although it cannot be said that before his work was not distinguished by the synergy of progressive sound and intricate texts, allowing the public and critics to chew and savor the lush musical cakes with special care. “Hot shop” progressive pop stars.
Dorn’s emphasis on the fact that he is preparing a special, conceptual album, thus, makes us not only be patient, but also be in anticipation of the “catch”.
50 Cent – “The Last Album”
American rapper 50 Cent has announced that he is preparing his latest album for entry in 2022. 46-year-old musician Curtis Jackson, that is actually the name of the artist, decided to end his music career at its peak: “I have terrorized the hip-hop industry for the last 14 years. I am in the top 10 greatest artists in history, ”he wrote on his Instagram account.
In the early 2000s, Eminem helped him rise, introducing him to another world rap legend – Dr. Dre. 50 Сent has had incredible commercial success and popularity from the very beginning of his career. What is really connected with his decision to leave the stage, most likely, will be advertised during the advertising campaign of the so-called “Last Album”.
Korn – «Requiem»
Californian nu metal band Korn is in a very gloomy state due to the pandemic, which is why the already not very funny metal music has become even darker. The new album is called “Requiem” in translation from English. Thus, the sad theme of “goodbye” becomes the message of yet another musical legend from the New World. What does that mean? Requiem will be the band’s 14th disc, and the legendary metalheads decided to shake up the old days in a particularly stylish way, returning to the analog method of sound recording. The release is scheduled for February 4, 2022.
Scorpions «Rock Believer»
On the other hand, old rock-men from the Old World, on the contrary, instead of a pandemic blues exude exclusively optimism and are ready to conquer new heights, although they have more than once confused fans with “farewell tours”.
It will be the 19th studio album of the Scorpions in the band’s 57-year history, and unlike 50 Cent, there is a suspicion that the restless rock veterans will not deny themselves the pleasure of reaching at least the 20th anniversary disc. On February 25, 2022, it will be possible to hear new rock ballads performed by 73-year-old Klaus Meine, clearly competing in stage survival with Mick Jagger.
The previous “farewell” plastic of “Scorpions” was called pathetically even for hard rock – “Return To Forever” – “Return to Eternity”. It seems that the musicians are bored of “eternity”. Everyone froze in anticipation of the next album “Rock Believer” – “Believer in Rock”.
Stromae – “Multitude”
The jewel and one of the most influential pillars of contemporary Belgian pop music, Stromae is releasing the highly anticipated new record after eight years of highly somnambulistic musical status. The release was announced on March 4, 2022. The artist and musician wrote and produced all 12 tracks of the album himself. Judging by the “seed” track “Santé” – the first single from the announced album, one of the most popular musicians in Europe does not change himself in any way in terms of music and will delight fans with a new clip of groovy dance tracks.
Liam Gallagher – «C’mon You Know»
Liam Gallagher – one of the halves of the legendary group “Oasis”, like his brother Noel, has long been releasing music under different names. Liam is preparing his third solo album for May 27. He is even going to dedicate a song to his brother. Noel, meanwhile, has been releasing music for 10 years under the personal brand Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, which quite immodestly means “high flying birds”.
Placebo – «Never Let Me Go»
British rockers Placebo pass dangerously close to our pop singer Dima Bilan. Their new, eighth and first in 10 years, disc will be called “Never Let Me Go”. If anyone has forgotten, then the English-language hit of our Dima, with which he stormed Eurovision 2006 for the first time, was called practically the same – “Never Let You Go”.
Of course, apart from the name, these works are not connected by anything else, but it’s still funny. It just coincided, as Zemfira sings – “the sign of infinity.” The long-awaited release of one of the most beautiful rock bands on the planet will take place on March 25th. In September, the first single “Beautiful James” was released, the second single, “Surrounded by Spies”, was released in early November.
Both songs are filled with the same thick and wavy sound for which many people love indie rock. In the video for the first single, all the musicians are wearing antique masks, and Brian Molko is in an updated image: with very long hair and a mustache.
Arctic Monkeys – Untitled Album
British group Arctic Monkeys are working on new songs that should be organized into a new album in 2022. As true rockers, they either come back from vacation, then go on vacation, then write music, or do not write, looking for inspiration, so there is still no exact information from them about what and when will be. But the band’s drummer Mat Helders has already mentioned to the press that the new album is almost ready and the group is even going to go on tour in 2022.
Red Hot Chili Peppers – Another unnamed album
RHCP is going on a world tour already in June, so the album should appear in the first half of 2022. Meanwhile, the American “peppers” as a group are already 38 years old, and the collective has long been included in the “Rock and Roll Hall of Fame”.
The tempo – one album every five years – is quite normal for the band. Their last disc came out in 2016. The record was produced by Rick Rubin, the “peppers” have been working with him since the early 1990s, so most likely these will be the same good old sharp songs, the mixed style of which is indefinable.
“Aquarium” and Boris Grebenshchikov – a question mark
In 2022, we should expect a new album by Boris Borisovich, however, it is not yet known in what format and with what name. The musician shared with the press that it is impossible to predict the result of the work that is being done now, and “music is a willful essence.” The leader of “Aquarium” says that it is too early to somehow characterize what is being written now, everything changes every day.
Madonna and her intrigue
Singer Madonna published a photo from the studio on social networks, which fans and simply curious people have already watched to the holes, and finally promised her fans new music in the new year. The 63-year-old singer sighs with joy about how good it is to finally be in the recording studio. “The old woman has missed you”, – admirers are moved with kind irony.
Now the performer is working on songs with rapper Suei Lee, producer Lauren D’Elia and other musicians, and all this activity makes, not without good reason, plunge into an exciting and pleasant anticipation: is it really a new album?
Green Day’s Americans have posted on social media a snippet of the music they are currently working on. Thus, the legendary artists stirred up the fans’ hopes for a new release. In 2022, the three musicians of the group will be 50 years old. Perhaps they are preparing a special disc for the common anniversary …
These are just a few of the possible high-profile releases of 2022, hinting that there is reason to consider the coming year in terms of new music even more powerful than the previous one. Especially considering that the autumn records are recorded in the second half of the year, and unexpected news from the musical field can bring a lush harvest …
