Emerson, Lake & Palmer
Emerson, Lake & Palmer (ELP) were an English progressive rock super-group formed in London in 1970. The band consisted of keyboardist Keith Emerson; singer, bassist, guitarist and producer Greg Lake; and drummer and percussionist Carl Palmer. With nine RIAA-certified gold record albums in the US, and an estimated 48 million records sold worldwide, they were one of the most popular and commercially successful progressive rock bands in the 1970s, with a musical sound including adaptations of classical music with jazz and symphonic rock elements, dominated by Emerson's flamboyant use of the Hammond organ, Moog synthesizer, and piano (although Lake wrote several acoustic songs for the group).

Electric Light Orchestra
The Electric Light Orchestra's ambitious yet irresistible fusion of Beatlesque pop, classical arrangements, and futuristic iconography rocketed the group to massive commercial success throughout the 1970s. ELO was formed in Birmingham, England in the autumn of 1970 from the ashes of the eccentric art-pop combo the Move, reuniting frontman Roy Wood with guitarist/composer Jeff Lynne, bassist Rick Price, and drummer Bev Bevan. Announcing their intentions to "pick up where 'I Am the Walrus' left off," the quartet sought to embellish their engagingly melodic rock with classical flourishes, tapping French horn player Bill Hunt and violinist Steve Woolam to record their self-titled debut LP (issued as No Answer in the U.S.). In the months between the sessions for the album and its eventual release, the Move embarked on their farewell tour, with Woolam exiting the ELO lineup prior to the enlistment of violinist Wilf Gibson, bassist Richard Tandy, and cellists Andy Craig and Hugh McDowell; despite the lengthy delay, Electric Light Orchestra sold strongly, buoyed by the success of the U.K. Top Ten hit "10538 Overture."

Sting My Songs (Deluxe)
This album will be released on May 24, 2019. https://music.apple.com/id/album/my-songs-deluxe/1457221745
And the usual spot, if you know what I mean.
Sting revealed the cover and track listing for his new album My Songs, which contains “re-imagined” versions of some of his favorite Police and solo compositions. It’s set for release on May 24 in standard and deluxe versions.
He previously explained how the idea came to him after reworking his song “Brand New Day.” In a new interview with Billboard, he said, “I'm constantly tinkering and I'm always wanting to make the songs as contemporary as they can possible be, because I think they are good songs. Sometimes songs are identified by the technology they were recorded with – recording techniques, the sound of synthesizers or the drum sound. They all date a song, so we just want to re-contemporize the stuff."
He said the new album made use of both old and new recordings, with arrangements based on how the music had evolved during live performances over the years.
“My voice has more interesting overtones than it did when I was 25," he noted. "It's a less pure sound, but I think it has this richness to it. The songs change every night when I sing them, and I'm always hearing something I haven't actually discovered there. It's discovery within that repetition too."

Susan Wong - Close To Me (2019)
The long-awaited new album by Susan Wong has arrived. ‘Close To Me’ is particularly special because the music production was a full hands-on role assumed by Susan, who wishes to showcase another side of her musical talents by becoming more involved production wise. Throughout this project, she maintains her trademark style of sultry vocals over smoothly adapted cover versions such as the piano laced rendition of ‘Man In The Mirror’ original by Michael Jackson. On the lead-off single ‘He’s The One’, Wong revisits the classic by British rock band World Party and adds her personal flavor to the tune which was also popularized by Robbie Williams.
Recorded over 3 years at studios in the USA, Hong Kong, and Philippines, Susan spent countless hours and sleepless nights alongside other co-producers refining her sound and mastering the songs to her highest standards. This album is recorded with audiophiles in mind and exemplifies ultra-high definition audio, ready to be experienced on super class HiFi stereos, in Master Quality Authenticated sound. ‘Close To Me’ will be available on MQACD, SACD, 180g Vinyl, and HD downloads.
The second promotional single, ‘Don’t Dream It’s Over’, a Crowded House original, is performed by Susan with a laid back, easy listening style. As usual Susan display’s her love for cover songs in approachable fashion, with relaxing and soothing characteristics.
