June 2022 New Music Releases
June will be marked by a massive series of new records by Tedeschi Trucks Band and some equally massive reissue packages from Elton John and the Beach Boys.
The first-ever compilation of solo material from Fleetwood Mac’s Christine McVie includes two previously unreleased tracks and a new orchestral rendition of her Rumours ballad "Songbird." Kiss also continue their official concert bootleg series with Live at Donington 1996.
Drive-By Truckers' 14th album Welcome 2 Club XIII features a handful of guest appearances, notably R.E.M.'s Mike Mills. Also arriving on store shelves are physical copies of the debut album by the Smile, featuring Radiohead's Thom Yorke and Jonny Greenwood.
Tedeschi Trucks Band's I Am the Moon series begins with the first of a quartet of LPs spread out over four months. Elton John's fourth album Madman Across the Water gets a 50th-anniversary expansion with rare live recordings, demos, outtakes and other previously unheard material. The Beach Boys are also bulking up their Sounds of Summer compilation, adding 50 tracks to the original track listing of 30.
