TURN IT UP TUESDAY: What’s New In Stores This Week (Jan. 29)

Just can't get enough of 'em.

Just can’t get enough of ’em.

From pop to soul to rock and even a little acoustic music, here are the new releases out in stores on Tuesday, January 29:

  • My pick of the week this week is an easy one: it’s the Chasing The Saturdays EP from British girl group The Saturdays. It’s their first album release in the States, which has followed a successful career in the United Kingdom for the girls. The five-track EP features new single, “What About Us?”, as well as four single releases from various efforts, my favorite being their 2011 single, “All Fired Up”. The television show that bares the same name as the EP is current airing on the E! network. (iTunes)
  • In a shock to absolutely no one, Justin Bieber will likely score next week’s #1 album with Believe Acoustic, an album’s worth of acoustic versions of songs from his last album, Believe, and two additional new tracks. It’s sale priced at $7.99 for the week, so, I guess the label really wants a big week out of it. (iTunes)
  • Duo Tegan & Sara release their seventh studio album, Heartthrob. Lead single “Closer” is top 40 on Alternative radio. (iTunes)
  • Former American Idol contestant Colton Dixon releases his first album, A Messenger. Lead single “You Are” is a top ten record on the Christian CHR airplay survey. (iTunes)
  • As the lead singer of The Gap Band, he led the group to big hits like “You Dropped A Bomb On Me”. Charlie Wilson releases his latest solo effort, Love, Charlie, featuring the Urban AC hit “My Love Is All I Have”. (iTunes)
  • Hardcore metal band Hatebreed release their first album since 2009, The Divinity of Purpose. (iTunes)
  • Singer-songwriter Ben Harper collaborates with harmonica player Charlie Musselwhite on his newest album, Get Up!, which comes with a bonus DVD in its physical release. (iTunes)
  • A special multi-disc deluxe edition of Fleetwood Mac‘s landmark album Rumours comes out today, featuring the original album, selections from the 1977 Rumours World Tour, plus demos and instrumentals. (iTunes)
  • Classical and opera singer Andrea Bocelli puts out a new album, Passione, which features duets with Jennifer Lopez and Nelly Furtado. (Amazon)
  • Did you miss her? She missed you. Lisa Loeb‘s new studio set, No Fairy Tale, is out today. (Amazon)
  • Destiny’s Child releases a cash-in compilation, Love Songs, featuring new track “Nuclear” as well as mix of mostly album tracks. (Amazon)

New digital-only singles that you can buy this week include:

  • “Remix (I Like The)”, the latest offering from Boston’s New Kids On The Block. It leads off 10, which is in stores April 2. (iTunes)
  • “By Your Side”, a remake of the Sade hit as done by Ben Taylor, the son of James Taylor and Carly Simon. Taylor performed the song on Monday night’s edition of The Bachelor. (iTunes)

See you for the pre-GRAMMY edition next week!
