#NewMusicFriday | 29 March

#NewMusicFriday releases coming out Fri 29 Mar from Jamie, hmv Leeds! Sharing his thoughts on a variety of terrific releases for our lovers of vinyl & CD alike. Perfect to discover new albums over the Easter weekend. Have a read or give it a watch on our YouTube!


It's a big week for BTS fans! J-Hope releases his second album, HOPE ON THE STREET VOL.1. Sharing his humble beginnings as a part of a street dance crew and the journey to BTS. Available in 2 versions, VER.1 PRELUDE and VER.2 INTERLUDE, you will also receive a zipper bag, photo zine, lyrics book, poster, 2 photo cards, sticker, and a hang tag!

Own Hope ON THE STREET VOL.1 now on VER.1 PRELUDE CD & VER.2 INTERLUDE CD. Contents include a CD, zipper bag, photo zine (80 pages), lyrics book (8 pages), poster, 2 photo cards, sticker and hang tag.

Sum 41 / Heaven :x: Hell

Although a slightly sadder announcement, Heaven :x: Hell marks the final album by Canadian Punk Rock legends, Sum 41. But they are going out with a bang! And leaving fans with an #hmvExclusive red & blue with black splatter vinyl that comes with a free plectrum pack!

Own Heaven :x: Hell now on exclusive@hmv red & blue with black splatter vinyl, standard vinyl & CD. Each format comes with a free plectrum pack! 

Sheryl Crow / Evolution

A wonderful surprise from Sheryl Crow as she releases her album, Evolution. Even though the 9-time Grammy Award winner and 2023 Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall Of Fame Inductee stated she would not release another full-length album after Threads, 2018! Evolution is also available on a stunning #hmvExclusive aqua vinyl. 

Own Evolution now on exclusive@hmv aqua vinyl, standard vinyl & CD.

Madness / The Liberty Of Norton Folgate 

Last but not least, Jamie’s favourite release today is the reissue of Madness’s 2009 album, The Liberty of Norton Folgate. A concept album, loosely based on London, included the singles NWA Five and Sugar and Spice… It's a masterpiece, and if you’re a fan of Madness and you haven't got it, this is something to check out over the weekend!

Own The Liberty Of Norton Folgate now on CD.
