It was released on November 9, 2012 by Interscope Records and Polydor Records.

Pure Heroine (Extended)
Pure Heroine is the debut studio album by New Zealand singer Lorde, which was released through Universal, Lava, and Republic Records on 27 September 2013. After several unsuccessful sessions with songwriters, Lorde was paired with Joel Little by A&R representative Scott Maclachlan, who assisted with the album's production. Recording took place at Golden Age Studios in Auckland. Pure Heroine has been described as a dream pop, electronica and electropop album with minimalist production, deep bass and programmed beats.
The album received positive reviews from most critics, many of whom praised its songwriting, production, and Lorde's vocal delivery. It appeared on several year-end critics' lists, and was nominated for Best Pop Vocal Album at the 56th Annual Grammy Awards. Pure Heroine deals with themes of youth and critiques mainstream culture, exploring wealth, fame, consumer culture and social status. The album is known for its impact and influence on contemporary pop music and its challenge to modern-day artists.
Lorde released Pure Heroine's lead single, "Royals", to critical and commercial success; it was followed by "Tennis Court", "Team" and "Glory and Gore".
Florence + The Machine
The follow up to Florence + The Machine’s 2009 debut Lungs, Ceremonials is a romantic epic filled with haunting pop hymns. Heavy with heartbreak, sin, salvation, and spirits, Florence Welch’s vocals pierce like howling prayers. "I am done with my graceless heart/ So tonight I'm gonna cut it out and then restart," she sings on “Shake It Out,” an anthem about setting the past free since “it’s hard to dance with the devil on your back.” An all-around grandiose production, other stand-outs include “Heartlines,” “All This And Heaven Too,” and "Leave My Body," on which, joined by a choir, Florence illuminates: "I don't want your future, I don't need your past/ One bright moment, is all I ask."
Electra Heart (Deluxe)
Marina and The Diamonds
Electra Heart is the second studio album by Welsh singer Marina Diamandis, released under the stage name Marina and the Diamonds. It was released on 27 April 2012 by 679 Artists and Atlantic Records. Diamandis collaborated with producers including Liam Howe, Greg Kurstin, Dr. Luke, Diplo and Stargate during its recording, and subsequently transitioned from the new wave musical styles seen throughout her debut studio album, The Family Jewels. Their efforts resulted in a concept album consisting of electropop and dance-pop music, a distinct departure from her earlier projects. Lyrically, the album discusses topics of love and identity. Diamandis created the title character "Electra Heart" to represent female archetypes in popular American culture.
Music critics were divided in their opinions of Electra Heart, expressing ambivalence towards Diamandis' shift in musical style and its overall production. The album debuted at number one on the UK Albums Chart with first-week sales of 21,358 copies. In doing so, it earned Diamandis her first chart-topping album there, although it later became the lowest-selling number-one album of the 21st century in the country.
For all the talk that The xx's second album would be more influenced by the beat-driven remix and production work that band member Jamie Smith has done since 2009's self-titled debut, Coexist sticks largely to the UK indie-electronic trio's already well-established strength: restraint. As ever, The xx mine a vein of minimalism in which the smallest moves make massive impacts: a sliding, single-string guitar lead or bobbing bass line; the inviting space in-between Smith's spare but kinetic beats; the sensual tension between Romy Madley Croft and Oliver Sim's gently tug-of-warring vocals. There are fresh elements here—the wavering steel drums and muffled, clacking beat of "Reunion," the resounding piano chords on "Swept Away"—and maybe some new confidence to Croft and Sim's singing—but for the most part Coexist doubles down and further distills The xx's singularly subtle allure.
Halcyon (Deluxe Version)
Halcyon Days is the reissue of English recording artist Ellie Goulding's second studio album, Halcyon. It was released on 23 August 2013 by Polydor Records. Following the release of "Halcyon" Goulding announced that she had plans to repackage the original album, with new songs that focused on electronic music. For the reissue Goulding recorded ten new songs and worked with a variety of producers to create her desire sound including Ryan Tedder, Calvin Harris and Greg Kurstin amongst others. Goulding and the producers created a synthpop album that takes influence from Indie pop, dream pop, alternative dance and features positive lyrics in contrast to her previous releases.
Upon release Halcyon Days was met with rave reviews from most music critics, who praised the albums musical expansion, its production and happier lyrical content. Commercially the reissue was a success and helped propel the original album on numerous charts. The lead single from the reissued album, "Burn", was released on 5 July 2013, becoming Goulding's first number-one single on the UK Singles Chart. The song also reached the top five in Germany and Ireland, and the top ten in Australia, France and New Zealand.
Some People Have REAL Problems

Released in 2008, the album featured singles including "Day Too Soon", "The Girl You Lost to Cocaine" and "Soon We'll Be Found". In live performances of the latter song, Sia used sign language to accompany her singing. The album displays a more upbeat pop-style than Sia's previous downbeat albums, whilst show-casing Sia's vocals on a number of big ballads. Non-single track, "Buttons", received attention due to its video in which Sia's face is distorted by pegs, string, net, condoms and many other things. The album debuted at number 26 on the US Billboard 200 chart which became Sia's first album to chart on the Billboard 200 in her career.

Truth Serum is the debut extended play (EP) by Swedish recording artist Tove Lo. The singer signed a publishing deal with Warner/Chappell Music in 2011, which led her to write songs for artists like Girls Aloud and Icona Pop. Around that time, she was going through a hard situation in a relationship, so she eventually started composing tracks related to that matter. She then decided to keep those tracks for herself as she considered them too personal. Lo independently released two of the songs as singles, "Love Ballad" in October 2012, and "Habits" in March 2013. Their popularity gained the singer a record deal with Universal Records in 2013. The EP was eventually released through the label to digital retailers on 3 March 2014.
Truth Serum has been described as a pop, electropop and indie pop record. According to Lo, the tracks talk about her most intense love affair, from the happy beginning of the relationship to the part when she is trying to move on after the break up. The EP received mostly positive reviews from music critics, who commended the production and the lyrics of the songs.
My Head Is An Animal
Of Monsters And Men
The performance that launched Icelandic band Of Monsters and Men in the States was an intimate, acoustic living room session recorded in late 2010 for (Reykjavik sister-city) Seattle's KEXP. Their full-length debut, My Head Is an Animal, similarly begins with just acoustic guitar and male/female vocal harmonies, but it quickly opens up into anthemic upsweep and choral shouts worthy of Arcade Fire, as the six-piece band expands from indie folk to booming chamber pop. There is odd instrumentation (accordion, melodica, glockenspiel), lively percussion and background vocals, and subtle effects of studio space; this is an album that announces Of Monsters and Men as a vastly bigger, and more ambitious, beast.
One year after Talk That Talk, Rihanna revs up her reign with some of her most entrancing material to date on seventh album Unapologetic. Led by hit single "Diamonds," she ventures through a variety of ballads, party tracks and collaborations: "Loveeeeeee Song" with Future, "Stay" with Mikky Ekko, "Numb" featuring Eminem, and then there's Chris Brown jamming out like Michael Jackson on "Nobody's Business"—a song you might be mad at if it weren't so good. "Jump," which borrows the chorus from Ginuwine's "Pony," finds RiRi bold as ever: "When you fuck them other girls I bet they be wondering why you always call my name"; while on "Love Without Tragedy/Mother Mary," she breaks free from the sentiment of the album's title and is most daring as she repents: "You took the best years of my life/...I pray that love don't strike twice."
Voices is the second studio album by American electronic rock duo Phantogram, released February 18, 2014 by Republic Records. It was produced by the band and John Hill. Steven Drozd of the Flaming Lips contributed to the song "Never Going Home".
