NEW MUSIC FRIDAY: Releases For The Week of June 29, 2018

Sting when you’re winning.

There’s a scorpion on the loose this week, as we enter the jungle of jams we call New Music Friday. Who else is joining the song safari? These are the notable digital and physical releases headed into the market this Friday:

DRAKE – Scorpion (iTunes)
Drake’s double album set, a total of 25 tracks, will storm the top of the Billboard 200 chart next week. Of course, the release features a pair of monster hits in “God’s Plan” and “Nice For What”, and plenty of future hits too. How giant will its first week be? Whatever it is, we’ll be watching.

FLORENCE + THE MACHINE – High As Hope (iTunes)
Led by the single “Hunger”, which leads the current Triple A chart and is just inside the top ten on Alternative radio, there’s certainly a hope that this album will enter the top five next week. Should it happen, the album will become their second to reach the region.

Notable albums out this week: Blair St. Clair‘s Call My Life (iTunes), Bullet For My Valentine‘s Gravity (iTunes), Gorillaz‘s The Now Now (iTunes), Guns N’ Roses‘s Appetite For Destruction: Locked N’ Loaded (iTunes), Leo Stannard‘s Maratea (iTunes), Sean Paul‘s Mad Love: The Prequel (iTunes)
