Unleashed on the world through the Telegraph's website this week, 'Studio Zoo' is the new album from the incredible Newton Faulkner, which is set to be released through Sony on August 26th.

This weekend saw Radio 1 & 1Xtra legend Mistajam release his highly anticipated compilation/mix album 'Speakerbox', which is a showcase of his much loved shows on the BBC airwaves and his incredible live shows. If you're a fan of music, then I will be very surprised if this doesn't get your body moving and your head bouncing - no feet shuffling though, please.

Following two hugely succesful singles, and with 'You & Me' set to also storm the charts, Disclosure have now announced the full tracklist for their debut album, which is set to be released June 3rd on PMR Records. Along with the single collaborations, 'Settle' will also feature vocals from Ed Mac, Jessie Ware & Jamie Woon, all of whom will no doubt bring something special to the table. Been an absolute pleasure watching these two rise, and I cannot wait to hear the album in full. Pre-order on all formats HERE, and check the tracklist after the jump.
After dropping the lead single 'That Rush' last week, Mystro has today unleashed the album sampler for highly anticipated debut album 'Mystrogen'. Never one to conform to the norm, MysDiggi has re-written the way album samplers should be done - September 10th is the date. Cannot wait...
Following a string of hit singles over the past 12 months, Calvin Harris has tonight announced that his third album will be called '18 Months' and features guest appearances from Kelis, Rihanna, Example, Nicky Romero, Ellie Goulding, Tinie Tempah, Florence, Dizzee Rascal, Ne-Yo, Ayah Marar and Dillon Francis. As you can see from the collaborations, the album will be a who's who of Electronic Pop music at the minute, with Calvin's signature big room Electro-House sound bringing the project together. October 29th is the release date.
During an age where digital downloading and online piracy is at its peak, it's no real surprise that album sales are the lowest in 12 years. Music Week have announced today that week-on-week average album sales this year are a mere 1,446,218, which sees a 27.62% drop and is the lowest since the new millennium. However, there is still some hope, as many artists are now focusing on shifting singles, which has seen those sales steadily rise in comparison to last year.
Legendary UK Soul/House group Incognito have today released their 15th studio album 'Surreal' on iTunes, through the brilliant Dome Records. The album comes some 31 years after the release of their debut LP 'Jazz Funk' in 1981, but they still have as much passion as they did then back then for creating beautiful music that is relevant to today and has that old skool edge to it. Get your copy HERE, and check out the single after the jump.
Following his two hit singles 'Let The Sunshine' & 'Earthquake', and with 'Last Time' also set to take the chart by storm, Labrinth has now released an interactive sampler for his album. 'Electronic Earth' will be released April 2nd; the Emeli Sandé-featuring track sounds amazing. Pre-order HERE.
NaSir Jones took to his Twitter yesterday to announce that his highly anticipated tenth studio album is completed, putting the ball in Def Jam's court and hopefully meaning we will hear it sometime this year. The news that tentatively titled 'Life Is Good' is ready to be released is music to every Hip-Hop fans ears, and will be his first solo LP since the controversial 'Untitled' in 2008 - if 'Nasty' and his recent features are anything to go by, then this is going to special. Nasty, kid.
