Bravely battling for #1.

Bravely battling for #1.

Some of you may be headed back to college in the coming days, but before you hit the books, study up on these top new releases! I think it’ll be easier than a midterm, don’t you? Here are the new and notable albums and singles up for sale this week:

  • LINDSEY STIRLING — Brave Enough (iTunes)
    • Violinist Stirling is back with her third studio album, her first since 2014’s Shatter Me. That set entered at #2, and it’s looking like she could be in the running for a large sales frame next week. Will it debut at #1? Time will tell. The radio single from it is “Something Wild”, a Hot AC hit that features Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness.
  • TORY LANEZ — I Told You (iTunes)
    • Lanez is best known for radio hits like “Say It”, which topped both the Rhythmic and Urban charts, and “LUV”, a song that’s accumulating major gains at those two formats and the Top 40 airwaves. Stream and track-equivalent units are likely to boost its placement on the Billboard 200.
  • DOLLY PARTON — Pure & Simple (iTunes)
    • With a new joint venture in place, Parton releases her latest studio album. Though she’s far beyond the days of major hits on the Country radio chart, this one will certainly rank high on the albums survey.
  • More albums out this week: Amos Lee‘s Spirit (iTunes), Crystal Castles‘s Amnesty (iTunes), Kiefer Sutherland‘s Down In A Hole (iTunes), The Color Morale‘s Desolate Divine (iTunes), Thom Sonny Green‘s High Anxiety (iTunes)
  • More EPs out this week: EDEN‘s I Think You Think Too Much Of Me (iTunes), Jake Miller‘s Overnight (iTunes), Jordan Fisher‘s Jordan Fisher (iTunes)
