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

Sales as old as time…

Be our guest to the finest in fresh releases on this week’s New Music Friday post, including a strong set of singles by both established acts and newcomers. Let’s check out all the action right here:

VARIOUS ARTISTS – Beauty And The Beast (Soundtrack) (iTunes)
Even if the new live-action film isn’t your thing, this album is sure to generate some attention on the charts. Of course, this picture is a remake of the 1991 film, with the title song, originally performed by Celine Dion and Peabo Bryson, going to Ariana Grande and John Legend. (Don’t worry, Dion has a new recording on the soundtrack and retains her title as Queen Of Canada.) The movie opens next week.

THE SHINS – Heartworms (iTunes)
This New Mexico band is out with their first studio album in five years. The lead single from it, “Name For You”, is currently holding in the top five on the Triple A chart, while it recently reached the top 30 on the Alternative radio survey. Will they maintain their top five streak on the Billboard 200? It might be close, so stay tuned!

TURN IT UP TUESDAY: What’s New In Stores This Week (October 21)

Looking for some not-so-"Mediocre" numbers.

Looking for some not-so-“Mediocre” numbers.

Rappers, rockers, reindeer lovers: they’re all in the mix this week as Q4 keeps chugging along at a faster pace. Here’s what albums and singles are in stores for the week of October 21:

  • No longer a Trouble Man and putting in his Paperwork is T.I., who has been hot on Rhythmic and Urban radio with hit singles like “About The Money” and “No Mediocre”, the former featuring Young Thug and the latter featuring Iggy Azalea. This is the rapper’s first album in two years and first since making the leap from Atlantic to Columbia Records. Look for it to be a contender for #1 next week. (iTunes)
  • Metal monsters Slipknot haven’t released a new studio album since 2008, but that changes this week when .5: The Gray Chapter debuts in stores. A single from it, “The Devil In I”, is shooting towards the #1 spot on the Active Rock airwaves, currently positioned at #2. Given the extended gap of time and high-ranking pre-release singles, this may also be in reach of the top. (iTunes)
  • After finishing their last era with a minor chart single called “Sober”, country quartet Little Big Town go for some “Day Drinking” on their latest set, Pain Killer. “Day” is currently top ten at Country radio and it appears that they’re due for another successful era. It should make a run at the top five on the Billboard 200, though it’ll fall short of #1. (iTunes)
  • The 24-year-old rapper named Logic has been noted on the underground circuit and blogosphere for several years now with a series of Young Sinatra mixtapes. This week, his first full-length album, Under Pressure, is out. Likely to be the surprise of the week, you may see the set bowing in the top five when all is said and done. (iTunes)
  • Ho, ho, hold on one moment — we have some sensational stocking stuffers sizzling on the scene, including Anthony Hamilton‘s Home For The Holidays (iTunes), Earth, Wind & Fire‘s Holiday (iTunes) and Pentatonix‘s That’s Christmas To Me (iTunes).
  • Other releases out this week include: Andrea Bocelli‘s Opera, The Ultimate Collection (iTunes), Annie Lennox‘s Nostalgia (iTunes), Aretha Franklin‘s Sings The Great Diva Classics (iTunes), Billy Idol‘s Kings & Queens Of The Underground (iTunes), Boyz II Men‘s Collide (iTunes), Bush‘s Man On The Run (iTunes), Gavin DeGraw‘s Finest Hour: The Best Of Gavin DeGraw (iTunes), Jacquie Lee‘s Broken Ones (EP) (iTunes), Jerry Garcia‘s GarciaLive Volume 5: December 31st 1975, Keystone Berkeley (iTunes), Jessie Ware‘s Tough Love (iTunes), Kiesza‘s Sound Of A Woman (iTunes), Neil Diamond‘s Melody Road (iTunes), Primus‘s Primus & The Chocolate Factory with the Fungi Ensemble (iTunes), Susan Boyle‘s Hope (iTunes) and Vérité‘s Echo (EP) (iTunes).

New digital-only singles that you can buy this week include:

  • “Baby Don’t Lie”, the new single from singer Gwen Stefani. (iTunes)
  • “Lips Are Movin”, a movin’ musical moment from Meghan Trainor. (iTunes)
  • “Nobody”, a single from YouTube’s Ricky Dillon. (iTunes)
  • “Outside”, a collaboration from Calvin Harris and Ellie Goulding. (iTunes)
  • “Welcome To New York”, a digital single from Taylor Swift. (iTunes)

A country chanteuse turned pop princess has a pretty huge album coming out on Monday… gee, I wonder who it could be? That swiftly approaching record, along with the rest of the new releases, are coming up in a full preview on Sunday night.
