The indestructible members of Golden Earring have been the leaders of the Dutch Pop scene for the past 50 years and, to prove it, they're releasing their 31st(!) studio album; their first in almost nine years. This oldest and most established Rock band in Holland decided not to rest on their laurels, but instead dived back into the studio to record an all-new album: 'Tits 'n Ass'
is the result. Their first single "Still Got The Keys To My First Cadillac" proves they still have what it takes! Packaged in a beautiful gatefold sleeve, the first 1000 copies are numbered and pressed onto silver marbled vinyl.

WILLIE NELSON – HEROES (2LP) – MOVLP549
With an impressive career already spanning over six decades and, with more than 200 albums under his belt, the rebel of Country music Willie Nelson has done more than enough to claim his place in the history of music. His new album 'Heroes'
is a testament to his status: a beautiful collection of popular pop-country songs, covers of classic songs from the 30's & 40's and new songs. He also gives us his interpretation of more modern classics: Coldplay's "The Scientist" and Pearl Jam's "Just Breathe" are both given the inimitable Willie Nelson treatment.
