TURN IT UP TUESDAY: What’s New In Stores This Week (Feb. 19)

Genius Of Love.

Genius Of Love.

If things are looking really barren this week… well, you’re right. Not a lot of big names again in the album department, but there are a few singles of note that are available for purchase. Here’s your new release roundup for February 19:

  • Indie rockers Atlas Genius, a quartet out of Australia, release their debut album this week, When It Was Now. It will likely be the top debut on next week’s album chart unless there’s a digital-0nly EP that I’m missing. First single “Trojans” hit the top five on Alternative radio and followup “If So” goes for adds soon. (iTunes)
  • Another band out of the land down under also puts out their first album in five years today. Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds put out Push The Sky Away. (iTunes)
  • Hard rockers Buckcherry are also out with Confessions. Their last two studio albums went top ten on the Billboard 200 album chart. (iTunes)
  • Ever wanted to hear your favorite pop and rock stars singing the tales of the sea? Nope, I didn’t either, but a compilation entitled Son Of Rogues Gallery: Pirate Ballads, Sea Songs & Chanteys is released today, so get it before you and it walk the plank. (iTunes)

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

  • “Almost Home”, a more pop-oriented number from American Idol judge and diva Mariah Carey. It’s featured on the soundtrack to the upcoming movie Oz The Great And Powerful. (iTunes)
  • “Entertainment”, the latest from French band Phoenix. It should be a big hit on the Alternative chart. (AmazonMP3)
  • “Hey Porsche”, already top 40 at CHR radio for rapper Nelly. (iTunes)
  • “One Way Or Another (Teenage Kicks)”, a charity single for Comic Relief in the United Kingdom as performed by One Direction. As expected, it’s getting a worldwide release, becoming the first Comic Relief single to do so. (iTunes)
  • “Rebel Beat”, the first single from the latest album by the Goo Goo Dolls, Magnetic. (iTunes)
  • “We Own Tonight”, a new track from the forthcoming New Kids On The Block album, 10. (iTunes)

We’ll be back next week with new albums by Thom Yorke side project Atoms For Peace and a rerelease from Christian singer Britt Nicole. See you in seven!
