Unbelievably it's been over a decade since Julian Lennon released his pleasant, Beatley Photograph Smile. Prolific he's not. So it's good news that you can now pre-order his next release called Everything Changes (not to be confused with one of my favorites Change Everything by Del Amitri). No official artwork or previews are out quite yet,
Hey, Jude's new album comes out 10/4 via import for us dirty Americans (his native UK friends get it on 9/26).
Tracklist (according to Amazon.co.uk)
1. Everything ChangesCheck out the rough mix of the title track here. Very nice.
2. Lookin' for Luv
3. Hold On
4. Touch the Sky
6. Just for You
9. Never Let You Go
10. Guess It Was Me
11. Don't Wake me Up
New tour dates are popping up! And it appears the album has been pushed back a couple weeks to 9/27. Grumble.

Pop music master and friend of toopoppy.com Brandon Schott is releasing his 4th album on October 25, 2011. "13 Satellites" is promised to be his bet yet and I for one can't wait. He's launching a massive campaign to get the distribution and promotion train going. Contribute now and not only get an advance copy of the CD when, but you can even get Brandon to come to your home or swipe his prized ukelele used in the recording of the album. I'll definitely be getting in on some of that!
Be sure to check out his YouTube Channel for the quirky but fun 13 Satellites teaser trailers!

This album is infectiously melodic, fun, well-produced, and brilliant.

Björk's videos rarely disappoint. When it's directed by Michel Gondry, director of one of my all-time fave flicks Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, you know it's special. Crystalline is her newest single from the upcoming Biophilia.
Not typical Too Poppy fare I know, but a man's gotta stretch and I've always had a soft spot for Björk.
As always, Björk is pushing the boundaries with the release of her new album Biophilia. In fact, it's being called the first app album. Yep, you can download the app (which is actually pretty cool and trippy itself) and then download individual tracks that are complete with multimedia accoutrements like games and video. The app is definitely worth checking out. Biophilia is out 9/27. Read more here.
