NEW MUSIC FRIDAY: Releases For The Week of September 8, 2017

Rhett’s a good bet.

Keep it country with this week’s batch of hot new releases, featuring several hitmakers from the genre, both old and new. There’s plenty more from outside of that world, so check out this week’s notable albums and singles:

THOMAS RHETT – Life Changes (iTunes)
Rhett’s star continues to rise in the Country world, with a number of chart-topping singles to his credit since 2013. His new set is already off to a good start, containing the Maren Morris-assisted “Craving You” (a #1 single at Country radio) and his latest hit at the format, “Unforgettable”, which is just below the top ten. It could very well be next week’s highest new entry.

JACK JOHNSON – All The Light Above It Too (iTunes)
Johnson is back and riding a wave into the top ten at the Triple A format with “My Mind Is For Sale”, and his latest studio album is also for sale (and streaming) at your favorite digital platform. Johnson’s last four studio releases, including one soundtrack, all went to #1 on the Billboard 200. We’ll see if this makes it five.

DUSTIN LYNCH – Current Mood (iTunes)
Lynch just scored his latest #1 at the Country format with “Small Town Boy”, with previous single “Seein’ Red” topping the list in February. Both songs are featured on this set, which should be one of the top new entries on both the overall and country charts.

More albums out this week: Gregg Allman‘s Southern Blood (iTunes), Hanson‘s Middle Of Nowhere – The Greatest Hits (iTunes), Kip Moore‘s Slowheart (iTunes), Leikeli47‘s Wash & Set (iTunes), Odesza‘s A Moment Apart (iTunes), The National‘s Sleep Well Beast (iTunes), Toby Keith‘s The Bus Songs (iTunes), Tori Amos‘s Native Invader (iTunes), Twin Peaks (Music From The Limited Event Series) (iTunes)
