DAVID GUETTA NEW ALBUM TRACKLISTING
“I could have chosen to repeat the style that has become so successful for me, but I wanted to grow as a producer and push myself to the limit. Try new ideas. Get out of my comfort zone. Create songs that stand up whether played by a DJ, a rock band or an orchestra. I worked with piano, violins, guitars and blended them with electronic elements. It’s also my most personal album lyrically, which is why I called it Listen. Dance too, but really it’s from the heart.”

OIL BOOM ALBUM STREAM
With their latest color-coded debut release, Red Metal, Oil Boom builds on their predilection for experimentation and genre bending playfulness. From the hook-heavy indie pulse of The Sneak Tip and Röckenröül to psych-blues barnburners like Scumsucker and Slow Going Down, there are no shortage of left turns and unexpected thrills on the group’s first full-length offering. “I feel like with this record, we really made an effort to throw some folks for a loop — most of all ourselves,” explains drummer Connors. “We’ve never really been interested in being known as any one type of band.” The return of ace engineer Jordan Richardson to the mixing board proved instrumental in helping the group venture off into uncharted sonic territory. “Jordan really helped us get where we wanted to go musically. I’m not sure where that is exactly,” deadpans Taylor, “But he got us there. And it’s pretty nice actually. They even have complimentary drinks.” Red Metal is released today.
