NEW MUSIC FRIDAY: Releases For The Week of July 28, 2017

Now is the time for chart glory.

There’s a sizable Fire burning among the albums being released this week, and plenty of notable names from the worlds of pop, rap and rock music. Here are the albums and singles you need to know this Friday:

ARCADE FIRE – Everything Now (iTunes)
With two #1 albums in a row, it’s no surprise that the fifth studio release by this Canadian sextet is the leading contender for the top spot next week. The title track from it is currently in the top 20 on the Alternative chart, and #1 on the Triple A list. Many of the reviews for it appear to be mixed thus far, though it’s still early on in the process.

CAGE THE ELEPHANT – Unpeeled (iTunes)
Led by the single “Whole Wide World”, this is a new live album by the Kentucky band, featuring both singles and album cuts off their past studio albums. Their previous release, 2015’s Tell Me I’m Pretty, had a top 30 peak and gave them two #1 titles on the Alternative chart. Will this set achieve the same results? Stay tuned!

JULIA MICHAELS – Nervous System (iTunes)
This singer has plenty of notable hits to her credit as a songwriter, and she entered the top ten on both Hot AC and Top 40 radio earlier this year with “Issues”. Now, follow-up “Uh Huh” is making some solid gains at the latter format. You’ll find these singles and more on this seven-song set.

More albums out this week: Aminé‘s Good For You (iTunes), Coast Modern‘s Coast Modern (iTunes), Jillette Johnson‘s All I Ever See In You Is Me (iTunes), Joe Nichols‘s Never Gets Old (iTunes), Joywave‘s Content (iTunes), Luke Christopher‘s TMRWFRVR (iTunes), Passenger‘s The Boy Who Cried Wolf (iTunes), Vic Mensa‘s The Autobiography (iTunes)

NEW MUSIC FRIDAY: Releases For The Week of December 18, 2015

Don't Mess with Adele, kids.

Don’t “Mess” with Adele, kids.

This week’s New Music Friday has a few more ideas for your last-minute Christmas music shopping. These acts are ready to sleigh the charts, so watch out! Here’s a look at this week’s top new albums and singles:

  • CAGE THE ELEPHANT — Tell Me I’m Pretty (iTunes)
    • With “Mess Around” well on its way to becoming a #1 single (#3 currently) on the Alternative survey, it looks like this era from the Kentucky band is going to be another successful one. By the way, if they do make it to the top, it’ll be the sixth #1 for them at the format. It should debut somewhere in the top 20, given the higher holiday sales.
  • CHRIS BROWN — Royalty (iTunes)
    • Several singles from Brown’s newest album have gone to radio, like “Liquor” and “Zero”, but with quick peaks and no longevity, the era’s been a bit messy. Currently, “Back To Sleep” is surging at Urban stations. The set will still have an okay debut, but it certainly won’t be as large as X‘s last year.
  • MONICA — Code Red (iTunes)
    • This album marks the R&B singer’s first studio set since 2012 and it’s led by the single “Just Right For Me”, which got as high as the top 20 on both Urban and Urban AC radio recently. The album features several collaborations.
  • More albums out this week: Ariana Grande‘s Christmas & Chill (iTunes), Baroness‘s Purple (iTunes), Pusha T‘s King Push – Darkest Before Dawn: The Prelude (iTunes), Star Wars: The Force Awakens (Soundtrack) (iTunes)
  • More EPs out this week: Jordan Sweeto‘s Evil Little Genius (iTunes), MAX‘s Wrong (iTunes), Sounds Like Harmony‘s Smile! (I’m Not Okay) (iTunes)

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

  • “Bad Like Yuh”, Samantha J (iTunes)
  • “Better Place”, Rachel Platten (iTunes)
  • “Cheap Thrills”, Sia (iTunes)
  • “Did I”, Kehlani (iTunes)
  • “Hey You”, Mr Hudson (iTunes)
  • “New Level”, A$AP Ferg featuring Future (iTunes)
  • “Simple Song”, John Paul White (iTunes)

We’ll see you in the new year for coverage of 2016’s notable releases. Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

TURN IT UP TUESDAY: What’s New In Stores This Week (October 8)

Bangin' out the hits.

Bangin’ out the hits.

It’s back to the normal Tuesday schedule this week. We’ve got a lot of ground to cover, so let’s get straight to it! Here are all the releases you need to know about for October 8:

  • She’s twerkin’ for a livin’ and she has this week’s most hyped-up album release by far. It’s Bangerz by Miley Cyrus, featuring the hits “We Can’t Stop” and “Wrecking Ball”. She’s caused just a little bit of controversy this era, and you know what? That will sell it. Look for it to be #1 on the Billboard 200 next week. (iTunes)
  • With their fourth studio album, rockers Panic! At The Disco remark that they’re Too Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die! The set is led off by “Miss Jackson”, featuring Lolo, a current top 20 single on the Alternative chart. (iTunes)
  • Also ranking high on the rock surveys is Cage The Elephant, the quintet who returns with album Melophobia, featuring the single “Come A Little Closer”. By the way, melophobia is a fear of music, but don’t be afraid to buy this. (iTunes)
  • Rapper Pusha T, one half of duo The Clipse, makes his solo debut with My Name Is My Name. The album features collaborations with Chris Brown, Kelly Rowland and Rick Ross, among others. (iTunes)
  • If you’re going to be at CMJ in New York City like I will be next week, you may get a chance to see these guys at one of their showcases. Irish rockers Kodaline make their debut with In A Perfect World, which features singles like “All I Want” and “Love Like This”. (iTunes)
  • “Never Never” doubt these guys when it comes to some hard-rocking music. That current Active Rock hit from Korn can found on their new album, The Paradigm Shift. (iTunes)
  • Soul singer Lyfe Jennings goes Lucid on his latest album, which features the recent Urban AC hit, “Boomerang”. (iTunes)
  • Singer-songwriter Amos Lee returns with his first album since 2011, Mountains of Sorrow, Rivers of Song. His last release debuted at #1; this will definitely not do the same. “The Man Who Wants You” is the first single from it, currently receiving AAA airplay. (iTunes)
  • In the world of Country music, check out The Voice winner Cassadee Pope‘s Frame By Frame (iTunes), “Sunny And 75” singer Joe Nichols‘s Crickets (iTunes) and superstar Kenny Rogers‘s You Can’t Make Old Friends (iTunes). The Pope release will likely make the largest bow, led by a well-performing Country single, “Wasting All These Tears”.
  • …and it’s October, so where would we be without a few early Christmas releases! (Really, guys?) Out this week are Country singer Gretchen Wilson‘s Christmas In My Heart (iTunes) and a 32-song compilation, Now Christmas (iTunes).
  • Other albums out this week include Alter Bridge‘s Fortress (iTunes), Lissie‘s Back To Forever (iTunes), Mayday Parade‘s Monsters In The Closet (iTunes), New Found Glory‘s Kill It Live (iTunes), Of Montreal‘s Lousy with Sylvianbriar (iTunes), Prince Royce‘s Soy El Mismo (iTunes), Sleigh Bells‘s Bitter Rivals (iTunes), St. Lucia‘s When The Night (iTunes), Vertical Horizon‘s Echoes From The Underground (iTunes) and V.V. Brown‘s Samson & Delilah (iTunes).

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

  • “Change Your Life (EP)”, a six-song release from rapper Iggy Azalea. (iTunes)
  • “Gone (EP)”, from newcomers Halo Circus and former American Idol contestant Alison Iraheta. (iTunes)
  • “Good Time”, the new single from socialite Paris Hilton and featuring Lil Wayne. (iTunes)
  • “Heartbreaker”, the first of ten Music Mondays tracks from Justin Bieber. (iTunes)
  • “High Rise (EP)”, a five-song EP from the Stone Temple Pilots and Linkin Park vocalist Chester Bennington. (iTunes)
  • “Timber”, a collaboration between rapper Pitbull and glitter aficionado Ke$ha. (iTunes)

You can look forward to albums next week from Gavin DeGraw, Paul McCartney, Pearl Jam and more! A full preview is coming in seven.
