This is one of those weeks where the new titles came out on Monday as opposed to Tuesday.
Taylor Swift: 1989 (Big Machine Records)
File Under: Pop
Taylor Swift is going with a decidedly more pop sound with this album. The catchy “Shake It Off” shows a fun new direction for her.
Target is offering three exclusive tracks (“Wonderland,” “You Are In Love,” and “New Romantics”) as well as a handful of 3 voice memos of three of the tracks from the standard edition and exclusive photo prints. See your local Target ad for other things being tied in with this release from Swift.
Led Zeppelin fans are ecstatic about these reissues, and they are putting them out at a fairly aggressive pace. While the super deluxe sets top the $100 mark, for the fan wanting to spend less have the option for a regular deluxe edition for each title
Paul McCartney: New (Collector’s Edition) (Concord/MPL)
File Under: Rock, Reissue
It was about a year ago that McCartney’s latest studio effort of pop music was released. While various bonus tracks abounded on international and retailer exclusives, now they are all collected in a DVD-sized booklet across 2 CDs and 1 DVD. For the latter part, footage from events around the world and behind the scenes moments are collected.
Next week, Paul and his Wings cohorts are guaranteed to get some more ink from us as the Paul McCartney Archive Collection campaign will roll on (after a brief delay from earlier this summer).
Jerry Lee Lewis: Rock And Roll Time (Vanguard)
File Under: Rock & Roll
The Killer teams up with Keith Richards, Neil Young, Shelby Lynne, and more on this new collection of songs.

Horace Silver: Horace Silver And The Jazz Messengers (Blue Note/Universal)
Thelonius Monk: Genius Of Modern Music, Vol. 1 (Blue Note/Universal)
