New Music Releases – June 2013
The new music releases for June 2013 are highlighted by the long-awaited return of one of heavy metal’s greatest bands, Black Sabbath.
Reunited for the first time in 35 years for a full studio album with original lead singer Ozzy Osbourne, ’13’ seems to find the legendary group (sadly minus founding drummer Bill Ward following a monetary dispute) in fine form. A deluxe version of the album will feature three additional new songs beyond the eight included on the basic record.
Other highlights include ‘Rockshow,’ a concert film from Paul McCartney‘s post-Beatles band Wings. (The accompanying live album, ‘Wings Over America,’ came out on May 28.) ZZ Top will also issue a 10-CD set of studio albums, which will include all of their early records mixed as originally intended, correcting the tweaked (and much maligned) versions found on 1987’s ‘Six Pack’ collection.
