Hymn for The Weeknd.

Hymn for The Weeknd.

You made it through the turkey, the stuffing, the sweet potatoes and the pies. Now, we’ll make it through the end of November. A small set of releases are out this week, but some good names are in the mix. Here are the notable album and single releases:

THE WEEKND — Starboy (iTunes)
26-year-old Abél Tesfaye is back with one of the most anticipated albums of 2016, and it’s looking to do some crazy numbers next week. The title track recently went top ten at CHR/Top 40, Hot AC, Rhythmic and Urban radio, while “I Feel It Coming” is picking up some notable airplay in a number of major markets. It’ll certainly be at the top of the Billboard 200.

GARTH BROOKS — Gunslinger (AmazonMP3)
If you already bought Brooks’s updated The Ultimate Collection box set, then you have a copy of this album. However, the stand-alone edition is due this week. It includes the single “Baby, Let’s Lay Down And Dance”, which is dancing toward the top 20 on the Country radio chart.

PRINCE — 4Ever (iTunes)
A new greatest hits compilation, featuring the previously unreleased track “Moonbeam Levels”, debuted earlier this week. It’s not likely to do much on the charts, but if you need some essential tunes from The Purple One, this is a good set to check out.

More albums out this week: Josh Garrels‘s The Light Came Down (iTunes), Rumer‘s This Girl’s In Love (A Bacharach & David Songbook) (iTunes)

More EPs out this week: Bon’Qui’Qui‘s Merry Hoodmas (iTunes), Flume‘s Skin Companion (iTunes), Gavin James‘s Winter Songs (iTunes)
