NEW MUSIC FRIDAY: Releases For The Week of October 5, 2018

Star is bright.

Go Gaga over this week’s top new releases, including a buzzing soundtrack, the latest set for a country hitmaker and duos galore! These are the notable digital and physical releases hitting the market today:

LADY GAGA & BRADLEY COOPER – A Star Is Born (Soundtrack) (iTunes)
Debuting the same weekend that its parent film opens at the box office, both the soundtrack and movie will attract a lot of people in the next few days. On the music side, “Shallow”, which was released last week, remains strong at #1 on iTunes. Also, the ballad “I’ll Never Love Again”, a radio single from the album, is expected to have one of the larger spikes following the film’s debut. Will it be enough to debut at #1 on the Billboard 200? We’ll see how well or not the movie does.

ERIC CHURCH – Desperate Man (iTunes)
Country star Church is well on his way to another high-charting entry, given his four top ten releases since the start of the decade on the Billboard 200 list. Led by the title track, a top 20 hit on the country radio survey, a combination of his passionate fan base and a lot of critical love should make the performer’s latest era a long and lasting one.

TWENTY ONE PILOTS – Trench (iTunes)
The duo’s new album is led by the radio singles “Jumpsuit”, which spent a week at #1 on the Alternative chart, and “My Blood”, a top ten song at the same format and now crossing to the Hot AC and Top 40 airwaves. Will it do as well as Blurryface, which had a string of huge crossover hits like “Stressed Out” and “Ride”? Stay tuned.

FOR KING & COUNTRY – Burn The Ships (iTunes)
Brother, can you spare a hit? The Australian siblings had a joyful time atop the Christian AC chart with “joy.”, which is also rising in the lower rungs of the Hot AC survey. The duo’s last studio album in 2014 just missed the top ten on the Billboard 200, but it’s likely that this one will enter the region.

Notable albums out this week: Castlecomer‘s Castlecomer (iTunes), Cat Power‘s Wanderer (iTunes), Emily Warren‘s Quiet Your Mind (iTunes), Eric Hutchinson & The Believers‘s Modern Happiness (iTunes), KT Tunstall‘s Wax (iTunes), LANY‘s Malibu Nights (iTunes), Mario‘s Dancing Shadows (iTunes), Matt Nathanson‘s Sings His Sad Heart (iTunes), Max Frost‘s Gold Rush (iTunes), Steve Perry‘s Traces (iTunes), T.I.‘s Dime Trap (iTunes), You Me At Six‘s VI (iTunes)

NEW MUSIC FRIDAY: Releases For The Week of November 6, 2015

Keepin' it country.

Keepin’ it country.

This week’s New Music Friday is a real twang thang after this year’s ACM Awards aired on Wednesday night, which gave boosts in sales to big winners like Chris Stapleton and Little Big Town. Here’s a look at this week’s top new albums and singles:

  • ERIC CHURCH — Mr. Misunderstood (iTunes)
    • The latest surprise album in the industry is this new release from Church, which was first distributed to members of his fan club beginning on Tuesday. The title cut from it was just serviced to Country stations, which replaces “Roller Coaster Ride” from his previous album, a song that began to gain traction off unsolicited airplay in several markets. About a day of its purchases will count towards the previous week’s list, but this will still have a good uptick in sales.
  • TIM MCGRAW — Damn Country Music (iTunes)
    • McGraw’s had a huge career in Country Music since his first top 40 single in 1994, and his 14th studio album has yet another top ten song still rising at the format, “Top Of The World”. Though his opening week sales have been on the decline for over a decade, McGraw’s latest set should find a place in the top five, which may extend his streak to 13 in a row.
  • OLD DOMINION — Meat And Candy (iTunes)
    • They have the current #1 song (and perhaps a multi-week one) on Country radio with “Break Up With Him”, but the band’s relationship at radio and retail is just beginning. With an already successful EP under their belts, look for the album to debut nicely next week. No word yet on what the act’s next single will be.
  • ELLIE GOULDING — Delirium (iTunes)
    • For releases outside the Country world this week, Goulding’s latest studio album is set for a solid entry next week. It includes “On My Mind”, an international hit that’s still climbing up the charts here in the States. Halcyon debuted at #9 on the Billboard 200 a little over three years ago.
  • LITTLE MIX — Get Weird (iTunes)
    • Their audience may not be as big in the U.S. as it certainly is across the pond, but the four women from the U.K. will be looking for their third top ten album here, even though single “Black Magic” hit a brick wall in the 20’s on the pop radio list. We’ll see what happens.
  • More albums out this week: Billy Gibbons and the BFG‘s Perfectamundo (iTunes), Bob Dylan‘s The Best Of The Cutting Edge 1965-1966: The Bootleg Series Vol. 12 (iTunes), CeeLo Green‘s Heart Blanche (iTunes), Grimes‘s Art Angels (iTunes), Hunter Hayes‘s 21 Project (iTunes), Josh Abbott Band‘s Front Row Seat (iTunes), Marc Broussard‘s Magnolias & Mistletoe (iTunes), Natalie Merchant‘s Paradise Is There: The New Tigerlily Recording (iTunes), Sam Smith‘s In The Lonely Hour (Drowning Shadows Edition) (iTunes), Sara Bareilles‘s What’s Inside: Songs From Waitress (iTunes), Seal‘s 7 (iTunes)
  • More EPs out this week: Cole Swindell‘s Down Home Sessions II (iTunes), Day Wave‘s Come Here Now (iTunes), Hudson Thames‘s Lip Tricks (iTunes), Ofelia K‘s Plastic Flower (iTunes), REMMI‘s New America (iTunes), The Japanese House‘s Clean (iTunes)

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

  • “Adventure Of A Lifetime”, Coldplay (iTunes)
  • “Been A Son”, Kurt Cobain (iTunes)
  • “Better”, BANKS (iTunes)
  • “Bird Set Free”, Sia (iTunes)
  • “Can’t Get Enough Of Myself”, Santigold featuring B.C. (iTunes)
  • “Do You Wanna Get High?”, Weezer (iTunes)
  • “I’ll Show You”, Justin Bieber (iTunes)
  • “It All Started With A Beer”, Frankie Ballard (iTunes)
  • “Kaleidoscope” and “Oasis”, A Great Big World (iTunes)
  • “Last Minute Late Night”, Kane Brown (iTunes)
  • “Makeshift Love”, Good Charlotte (iTunes)
  • “Naked (Live)”, Goo Goo Dolls (iTunes)
  • “Sober Saturday Night”, Chris Young featuring Vince Gill (iTunes)
  • “Summer Was A Day”, Pete Yorn (iTunes)
  • “Switch Up”, R. Kelly featuring Lil’ Wayne and Jeremih (iTunes)

Next Friday, our preview will include a hot Q4 album battle between Justin Bieber and One Direction. See you then!

TURN IT UP TUESDAY: What’s New In Stores This Week (February 11)

The outsider goes inside the charts.

The outsider goes inside the charts.

Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, so instead of heading to CVS for a gift, why not give the gift of music for the big day? Here are some choices you may fall in love with that are in stores for the week of February 11:

  • This week’s biggest release and likely to land a debut of six figures is the new album from Country singer Eric Church, The Outsiders. The current single from it is “Give Me Back My Hometown”, a top gainer on the airplay chart and a consistent seller digitally. Unless the soundtrack from Frozen decides to surprise once again, this should be #1 next week. (iTunes)
  • His first era came and went without a significant hit, but Frankie Ballard‘s Sunshine & Whiskey has a delivered a massive track in “Helluva Life”, which sits in the top ten on the Country chart. His album should land somewhere in the top 20 dependent on how big his base is. (iTunes)
  • The second original television soundtrack from HBO’s Girls is out this week, titled All Adventurous Women Do. It features songs from Christina Perri, Lily Allen, Miguel and more. Adventurous indeed. (iTunes)
  • Two other soundtracks from the movies are both out today: The Lego Movie (iTunes) and Vampire Academy (iTunes).
  • Other releases out include: Band Of Horses‘s Acoustic At The Ryman (iTunes), Greg Laswell‘s I Was Going To Be An Astronaut (iTunes), Meg Myers‘s Make A Shadow (EP) (iTunes), Neil Finn‘s Dizzy Heights (iTunes) and Sun Kil Moon‘s Benji (iTunes).

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

  • “Automatic”, the first single from Miranda Lambert‘s forthcoming album. (iTunes)
  • “Better Than It Ever Could Be”, a new track from Aussie band The Preatures. (iTunes)
  • “Tell The World”, a great new track from singer-songwriter Eric Hutchinson. (iTunes)
  • “You’re Mine”, a digital single from Lea Michele‘s forthcoming album. (iTunes)
  • “You’re Mine (Eternal)”, out on Wednesday for diva Mariah Carey. (iTunes)

American Idol‘s Candice Glover and Country star Cole Swindell lead the pack of next week’s releases. We’ll see how they fare in seven.
