Ready, set, Kygo.

Ready, set, Kygo.

It’s Commencement season once again, so come and celebrate the newest musical graduates on the release schedule. With a top pop mark or two, they’re bound to go far on the charts. Here are this week’s new albums and singles:

  • KYGO — Cloud Nine (iTunes)
    • The Norwegian DJ and producer, born Kyrre Gørvell-Dahll, hasn’t seen much radio success in the U.S. with singles like “Firestone” and “Stole The Show”. However, he’s had a solid presence on the charts in Europe, especially in his home country of Norway, during the past two years. Cloud is his first album to hit the market, and the current U.S. single from it is “Stay”. Whether it’s a cirrus, cumulus or stratus, it’s bound to rise in those chart skies.
  • MEGHAN TRAINOR — Thank You (iTunes)
    • Trainor’s sophomore era can be reduced to a series of unfortunate events, which likely wasn’t planned as so. “NO”, the leadoff single, stalled at #7 on Top 40 radio due to negative research, and rushing out “Me Too” proved to be a challenge, thanks to a retouching issue in its video. The album is still likely to be a #1 contender, but it will not have legs if the current conditions regarding its singles continue.
  • More albums out this week: 3OH!3‘s Night Sports (iTunes), Corinne Bailey Rae‘s The Heart Speaks In Whispers (iTunes), Foy Vance‘s The Wild Swan (iTunes), Jennifer Nettles‘s Playing With Fire (iTunes), Justin Klump‘s Justin Klump (iTunes), Modern Baseball‘s Holy Ghost (iTunes), Pierce The Veil‘s Misadventures (iTunes), Radiohead‘s A Moon Shaped Pool (iTunes), Sawyer Fredericks‘s A Good Storm (iTunes)
