NEW MUSIC FRIDAY: Releases For The Week of February 10, 2017

The Shades is real.

The Shades is real.

Our new releases post will see you now… or rather, you’ll see our new releases post now. Whatever the case may be, this set of fresh releases before the GRAMMY Awards has many great titles. Here are some of this week’s new albums and singles:

VARIOUS ARTISTS – Fifty Shades Darker (Soundtrack) (iTunes)
Led by the hit ZAYN and Taylor Swift duet, “I Don’t Wanna Live Forever”, this set full of stars is likely to top the album chart next week. The original Fifty Shades Of Grey soundtrack, which included several big hits, became one of the top-selling albums of 2015. I think the film’s opening on Friday will contribute to some sales and streaming surges over the weekend, but just how high will it go?

RAG’N’BONE MAN – Human (iTunes)
The title track from this promising newcomer’s album has been on top of my personal chart for five big weeks, and it may just secure another week at the top come Sunday morning. Two of my favorite Jamies, Hartman and Scott, put in work on this album, and it’s at the top of iTunes charts in over 25 countries already. It should also make a decent splash here.

McMahon recently hit the top ten on the Alternative radio listing with “Fire Escape”, his first since “Cecilia And The Satellite” in May of 2015. Of course, you probably remember how slow of a run that had. He’s likely due for another top 40 (or a first top 20) album.

BRETT YOUNG – Brett Young (iTunes)
Young took his time and hit the top of the Country radio chart late last year with “Sleep Without You”. His latest single at the format is “In Case You Didn’t Know”, and it could be headed to #1 as well. Look for it to top the Country Albums list next week.

More albums out this week: Lupe Fiasco‘s DROGAS Light (iTunes)

More EPs out this week: Aaron Carter‘s LøVë (iTunes), Adam Friedman‘s Green (iTunes), Lukr‘s Heartbreak Mixtape, Vol. 1 (iTunes)
