TURN IT UP TUESDAY: What’s New In Stores This Week (Feb. 12)

Straight from the "Heart".

Straight from the “Heart”.

It’s two days after the GRAMMY Awards… feeling the letdown yet? Well, there’s still new music out this week, though labels don’t traditionally pack the schedule with albums and singles this week. Nevertheless, here are your new releases for February 12:

  • Pick Of The Week for this week is the new EP by singer-songwriter Matt Hires, Forever. The four-song release is a nice mix of twangy tunes (First single “Restless Heart” and “The Sound Of Falling In Love” and more straight-forward pop/rock ditties (the title track and “Signal In The Sky”.) It’s a digital-only EP, but a full-length album will be following on May 6, The World Won’t Last Forever. “Heart” should be making my personal chart in next one or two weeks. (AmazonMP3)
  • Only a few million of you watched Smash‘s return to NBC last week, but the television show puts out Bombshell this week, a packed 22-song album from the fictional musical that the show is producing based on the life of Marilyn Monroe. (iTunes)
  • Brushfire Records artist Matt Costa returns with a self-titled effort, which features first single “Good Times”, currently impacting AAA radio. (iTunes)
  • Gabrielle Aplin, who had a big hit on the U.K. charts last year with her cover of Frankie Goes To Hollywood‘s “The Power Of Love”, returns with “Please Don’t Say You Love Me”. It’s released as an EP here today. (AmazonMP3)
  • Rockers Bullet For My Valentine return with Temper Temper, their first release in three years and fourth studio album overall. (iTunes)
  • After releasing a Christmas album last September, Jeremy Camp puts out a regular studio album, Restless. (iTunes)

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

We’ll be back next week with new albums by rockers Atlas Genius and Buckcherry. See you in seven!
