The Wrap-Up: This Week in Music + 12 Cuts

The Wrap-Up brings you the 5 largest music news stories of the week, as well as information about new album and music video releases. This week: an unreleased Green Day track, Paramore album speculations, and more!


Spoon release a new album




After their 2014 release “They Want My Soul,” Spoon are back with their newest album “Hot Thoughts,” released today. This album — the 9th in the band’s discography — complements their well-known sound with groovy electronic beats. What are your “Hot Thoughts” on the release?


An unreleased Green Day instrumental is now available




An instrumental Green Day song titled “That Just Happened” has been uncovered from the depths of their documentary’s soundtrack. The song was originally included in a bonus chapter on the DVD of the band’s documentary ¡Cuatro! Any chance they’ll whip out this secret track at their show at the DCU Center tonight?


Weezer release new single




Weezer released a new single on Wednesday called “Feels Like Summer.” We’re not sure we agree, but we appreciate the band’s optimism. The single is part of a new album that is supposedly in the works. Any guesses on what color this one might be named after?


Is a new Paramore album coming soon?




Paramore have just registered 12 new songs in the American Society of Composers, Authors, and Publishers (ASCAP) database, suggesting that a new album might be complete. The news was tweeted by fan account @TheParamoreBand on Tuesday.
