NEW MUSIC FRIDAY: Releases For The Week of September 7, 2018

You say she’ll be #1…

Ooh, child, it’s another fantastic Friday in the music world with a fresh batch of new albums hitting the scene. These are the notable digital and physical releases headed into the market this Friday:

LAUREN DAIGLE – Look Up Child (iTunes)
Daigle is dominating the Christian charts with the lead single from this album, “You Say”, which looks poised to cross to other radio formats, having already reached the top five on iTunes and the middle portion of the Hot 100. It’s a very likely contender for #1, but there are several releases competing for the title, including a few steady streaming winners that could interfere.

PAUL MCCARTNEY – Egypt Station (iTunes)
Get in the carpool and sing along to McCartney’s newest album, which features the top ten Triple A radio song “Come On To Me”. It has a pretty good shot at becoming his third top five album on the Billboard 200 during the past decade, especially as one of the top upper demo records of the week.

TURN IT UP TUESDAY: What’s New In Stores This Week (February 17)

Extending their chart "Life".

Extending their chart “Life”.

When you’re hot, you’re hot, and sometimes you’re so burning that you “make a dragon want to retire.” However, dragons of a different kind come out of a funk this time around and add fuel to the flame. Here are the albums and singles that are new in stores for the week of February 17:

  • You know them from big hits like “Demons” and “Radioactive”, as well as “I Bet My Life”, their current radio cut. Now, the fiery four fellows who call themselves Imagine Dragons spark a sizzling set of songs entitled Smoke + Mirrors. It will likely debut at #1 given the well-promoted Target campaign for the album and strong pre-order numbers. (iTunes)
  • In case you missed them over the weekend when they were released, check out rapper Drake‘s new mixtape, If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late (iTunes), as well as an EP from independent Jacob Whitesides, A Piece Of Me. (iTunes)
  • Other releases out this week include: Colin Hay‘s Next Year People (iTunes), Elle King‘s Love Stuff (iTunes), Estelle‘s True Romance (iTunes), Kate Pierson‘s Guitars And Microphones (iTunes), The Juliana Hatfield Three‘s Whatever, My Love (iTunes) and The Wind + The Wave‘s Covers One (EP) (iTunes).

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

  • “Let’s Not Be Alone Tonight”, a new single from Disney’s R5. (iTunes)
  • “Lifted Up (1985)”, the new single from Passion Pit. (iTunes)
  • “Never Alone”, an instant grat single from Shawn Mendes. (iTunes)
  • “Scared”, a brand new song from Delta Rae. (iTunes)
  • “The Weekend”, new from Eden XO. (iTunes)

Next week, fresh new albums from Big Sean and Kid Rock should dominate with solid top five debuts, but can anyone else light up the list? A full preview is coming in seven!
