TURN IT UP TUESDAY: What’s New In Stores This Week (May 14)

I think she'll have a chart attack.

I think she’ll have a chart attack.

Mamma mia! Here we go again. Here are the albums rocking the record stores and intriguing the internet for the week of May 14:

  • Former Disney star turned pop princess Demi Lovato has a hot new album in stores today, simply titled Demi. First single, “Heart Attack”, was an instant hit at both radio and retail and is looking to become her biggest hit yet. Look for it to potentially debut at #1, knocking off the latest release from Lady Antebellum. (iTunes)
  • Country legend George Strait is back with his twenty-eighth album of original material, Love Is Everything. His label, MCA, has launched a “60 For 60” campaign for the set’s first single, “Give It All We Got Tonight”, which could mark the 60th number-one single for the performer across four trade charts: Billboard, Mediabase 24/7, and the-now defunct Gavin Report and Radio & Records. (iTunes)
  • They’re indie darlings and they recently performed on Saturday Night Live. New York-based band Vampire Weekend releases Modern Vampires Of The City, featuring one of the group’s biggest radio singles, “Diane Young”. (iTunes)
  • Another Country singer and current The Celebrity Apprentice finalist Trace Adkins is out with his latest, Love Will…, featuring current single “Watch The World End” with singer Colbie Caillat. (iTunes)
  • She made her way from the Christian music scene to the top of the pop charts and now she’s back to her home genre. Singer Amy Grant release How Mercy Looks From Here, her fifteenth studio album and second for Sparrow Records. Lead single “Don’t Try So Hard” features backing vocals from singer-songwriter James Taylor. (iTunes)
  • Rapper Eve is back with her first new album in eleven years, the long-delayed Lip Lock, which was once led off by the single “Tambourine” back in 2007. That song is no longer present on it. It’s her first album to be independently released. (iTunes)
  • He’s a God in the world of a cappella music, so don’t worry, be happy that he’s back with a new full-length album. Bobby McFerrin returns with Spirityouall. (iTunes)
  • Formerly of ABBA, Agnetha Fältskog releases her first solo album of original material in 25 years, A. (iTunes)
  • The disbanded R.E.M. is out with a twenty-fifth anniversary edition of their album Green, which featured the top ten hit, 1989’s “Stand”. (iTunes)
  • Other albums out this week include: Mindless Self Indulgence‘s How I Learned To Stop Giving A Sh*t and Love Mindless Self Indulgence (iTunes) and MS MR‘s Secondhand Rapture (iTunes).

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

  • “Little Bit Of Everything”, a first single from Country singer Keith Urban‘s forthcoming album. (iTunes)
  • “Someone Somewhere Tonight”, a new single from former American Idol contestant and current Dancing With The Stars contestant Kellie Pickler. (iTunes)

Next week, it’s all about the punks as Daft Punk release their highly-anticipated album, Random Access Memories. Will it ram itself into the top spot or can Darius Rucker roll his wagon wheel their first? A preview is coming in seven!
