This Week's Music (April 28, 2009)

Welcome back to the weekly new music roundup, where I will try highlighting some of tomorrow's interesting/major music releases.

This week sees the return of Bob Dylan, with Together Through Life. Numerous deluxe editions are available in addition to the main album itself.

In the meantime, Ben Folds will be presenting an album featuring a cappella interpretations of his music. As per Folds' website, "Amazed to discover the large amount of colleges that have very active a cappella groups on campus across the country (1,200 in the US alone), and, on top of this, how many of them love to cover his songs, Folds decided to A&R and produce a record gathering the best of these performances." [] While the album will not feature this excellent rendition of Folds' cover of Dr. Dre's "Bitches Ain't Shit," it definitely has potential to be interesting!

This week will also mark the return of A Camp with their second album Colonia. The band, active since around 2001, is the solo/side project of Nina Persson (previously of The Cardigans). You can watch a video for the album's first single, "Stronger Than Jesus," below. As always, a list of other music releases follows.
