We are extremely excited about the upcoming releases. There’s some sweet and sour from Lana Del Rey, with her depri pop, but also some light Norwegian sunrays from Sigrid. While the guys from Dream Theater help us with the heavy lifting. Furthermore, we have Finn Andrews (frontman of The Veils) to even out our listing experiences with his heartfelt piano ballads.
New music from the Chordify community
New in this new album blog is the segment where we ask you to send in your own songs. Are you making music, and do you want to present your new hit? Listen up. We come across so much beautiful material that isn’t supported by a phat deal with a record label. So, we want to do something to support those lesser-known-but-still-very-good artists, by calling attention to them in our blog.
Send us your new music and we’ll put it in the limelight
How does it work?
- Send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with a link (not a file) to your new song. Note that we are not asking for complete albums and no old songs.
- It goes without saying that the material has to be your own or that of your band.
- The editorial staff will listen closely to the submissions and select the one that they find most suiting for the upcoming blog.
- Maybe you’ll be put in the limelight of our next new album blog!
The symbolic first submission is by our own homebrewed Car Pets. Of which the drummer is Chordify’s co-founder and CTO, Tijmen Ruizendaal. They will release their new album this Friday, which is why we pay special attention to their single “Concrete Corner.”
So grab this chance and send in your new single! Happy jamming :)
