Music: The best new albums out this week.

It’s a huge week for music as Bastille, Madonna and Taron Egerton / Elton John all releasing new albums.

Madonna’s Madame X is a return to form as the Pop icon presents a hybrid of her more recent work with melodies that hark back to her heyday.


Taron Egerton and Sir Elton John repackage some of Elt’s classic hits on the soundtrack to hit movie Rocketman. Most of the tracks are sung by Taron alone, whilst Elton joins him on closing track (I’m Gonna) Love Me Again. Richard Madden and Kit Connor are among other guests joining Taron for a duet.


Three albums in and Bastille have got their winning formula down to a t. No real surprises here but some brilliant tunes as you’d expect, including new single Joy and title track Doom Days.
