Eyes on the prize.

It’s another edition of New Music Friday, and while we won’t be winning any awards for this post, some of the acts featured in our new releases recap may be in possession of some trophies in a few weeks. Here are this week’s notable albums and singles:

  • VARIOUS ARTISTS — 2016 GRAMMY Nominees (iTunes)
    • The highest debut on next week’s chart (as Adele will likely return to #1) should be this album of nominees from the upcoming award show, which airs on February 15. The tracklisting includes songs from Ed Sheeran, Taylor Swift, The Weekend and much more.
  • MEGADETH — Dystopia (iTunes)
    • The Los Angeles hard rockers have been at it for over three decades now, and if their latest set makes the top ten, it’ll be their seventh title to do so on the Billboard 200. The title track from it is headed towards the top 40 on the Active Rock chart.
  • TANK — Sex, Love & Pain II (iTunes)
    • In 2007, the original Sex, Love & Pain debuted and peaked at #2 on the album chart, while also topping the R&B list. The latter may happen again, but it’ll likely only make the top 20 on the overall listing.
  • More albums out this week: Chairlift‘s Moth (iTunes), Coasts‘s Coasts (iTunes), Green River Ordinance‘s Fifteen (iTunes), King Charles‘s Gamble For A Rose (iTunes), RÜFÜS DU SOL‘s Bloom (iTunes), Savages‘s Adore Life (iTunes), Steve Angello‘s Wild Youth (iTunes), William McDowell‘s Sounds Of Revival (iTunes), The Hunchback Of Notre Dame (Cast Recording) (iTunes)
