AJR To Release Debut Album “Living Room” September 30th!

After months of anticipation, we finally have a confirmed release date for AJR‘s debut album!  “Living Room” will be released on September 30th by Warner Brothers Records & AJR Productions.   Why “Living Room?”  Brothers Adam, Jack and Ryan Met wrote, produced, mixed, and recorded the entire album from their living room in Chelsea.

The band shared the news on Twitter, so their fans would be the first to know.

We’re hoping it includes crowd favorites like “Alice By The Hudson,” “The Green and The Town,” and “Married On a Hill.”  And of course we can’t wait to hear some new tracks!

**UPDATE: “Living Room” has been pushed back to 2015, but AJR are releasing the “Infinity” EP in the meantime, out 9/23!  Check out a message from the guys below:

The Friday Five: Memorial Day Playlist

Happy Memorial Day Weekend!  We’re sure many of you (including us) are traveling for the long weekend, so here is our playlist of the songs we plan to drive around blasting to celebrate the official start of summer.

1.  Austin Mahone – “Next To You”
Austin just released this track from his debut album “The Secret,” out next week!  And we’ve been listening to it nonstop. (Literally like 10 times in a row).   He’s said that his album was influenced by the boy bands of the 90s, and it’s evident in this track.  We can’t wait to see what moves Austin the one-man boy band has planned for this one!

2. Dan + Shay – “Sway”
We heard this unreleased track at the Dan + Shay + You acoustic session, and found ourselves instantly swaying and singing along.   Dan and Shay said this song, which they played here for the first time ever, would likely be on their next album.  Lucky for you (and us) we caught it on video!

3.  The Vamps – “Somebody To You”
As soon as we heard this song, we had a feeling it would be The Vamps’ next single.  And we were right!  What we weren’t expecting is for Demi Lovato to be featured on the track.  They’ve teamed up for what’s sure to be a mega-hit for the British band.  Hopefully all the radio play this song is getting will lead to the long awaited US release date for The Vamps album!

4. Hunter Hayes – “Tattoo”
We cannot say enough good things about Hunter Hayes.  Not only is he extremely talented (he can play over 30 instruments) he’s also kind and humble.  We love this track off of his new album, “Storyline,” which is likely to be the second single off the album.  This song will stick with you,  even the first time you hear it…just like a tattoo!

5. AJR – “After Hours”
Their first single “I’m Ready,” is on track to be a big hit this summer, but we love all of AJR’s songs, especially this track off of their “I’m Ready EP.”  It’s fun, catchy, and has a horn section.  We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: AJR’s unique sound just makes us excited about music.  We can’t wait for their debut album due out later this summer!
