Surprise album releases seem to be the new thing. Bowie sort of started it back in January 2013 when he suddenly announced that he had a new record coming out. Last December, a record from Beyonce popped out with no warning. The marketing department at Warner Brothers got four days’ notice that a Skrillex album was coming earlier this month. And now we have New Crown from Wolfmother.
No heads-up, no hints, no teases. It just…appeared.
