Tuesday Ten: 247: London

Yeah, so I’ve kinda looked at this before (see box links), but I’ve never actually delved into songs about the city that is my home. And with it being six years last month since Daisy and I moved to Finsbury Park in North London (Daisy moving to London for the first time, me returning after a decade away), it seems an appropriate time to celebrate the city in music.

2016: Upcoming Music

I’ve done this for a good many years now, and 2016 will be no exception – a round-up of confirmed and potential releases relevant to amodelofcontrol.com and it’s readers. This is by no means an exhaustive list, and some may not be announced yet. Indeed, some of those announced already may change, or those that are marked as “expected” in 2016 may not happen at all, or get delayed into 2017. Needless to say, I provide this list in good faith – collated from official posts on Social Media, websites, music news releases, or direct contact from bands/labels – and please don’t blame me for any changes.

Please do let me know if you can update, correct, or add to the below.
