The Cribs have been forced to delay the release of their career retrospective ‘Payola‘ thanks to an unspecified manufacturing error.
The Cribs will be presented with the Outstanding Contribution To Music prize at the NME Awards later this month, it has been announced.
The Cribs have unveiled the video for their new track ‘Leather Jacket Love Song‘, which will feature on the trio’s upcoming singles collection ‘Payola‘.
The Cribs had a brand new track premiered on Steve Lamacq’s BBC 6Music show yesterday afternoon (January 3rd), which will be included on the band’s forthcoming ‘Payola‘ singles collection.
Now you’ve been through our extensive Essential Listening 2012 series, which includes all our top choices from a past twelve months of albums, gigs and tracks, here some of our frankly super talented band of writers pick out their own favourite album of 2012, each making a convincing argument for the selected records in the process.
Our Essential Listening 2012 series concludes today with The Albums.
From the ‘cohesion through experimentation’ of Tame Impala’s ‘Lonerism, through the ‘muscular power ballads, stirring, keyboard-led harmonies and call-and-response choruses’ that inform The Killers’ return with ‘Battle Born’, to the ‘sheer magnetism and unwavering belief’ which made ‘Blunderbuss’ such a successful solo debut for Jack White, we feel this rundown highlights some of the year’s truly outstanding releases that everyone should make an effort to check out.
And don’t forget, there’s only room for one place each on our Essential Listening Series, so if your favourite artist of the year isn’t included in this particular rundown, make sure you check through our previous lists to see if they’ve made an appearance elsewhere. And after that, if they’re still nowhere to be seen, maybe you should leave a comment below to let us know about it.
Yorkshire trio The Cribs have collected their singles history together for a new album which will be released early next year.
