JASON ALDEAN – Rearview Town (iTunes)
Riding high on the Country survey with his smash “You Make It Easy”, Aldean is looking for his fourth consecutive #1 album of the decade.

Streaming breakout Bazzi has crossed over to the national charts with the hit “Mine”, and his first full-length release features a selection of proven winners, along with some new material to balance it out.

NEW MUSIC FRIDAY: Releases For The Week of September 9, 2016

A whole new “World”.

As the summer cools down, the charts are about to heat up with pop players and country contenders. They’re all looking out for the top of the charts, but will any of them get there? Here are the notable albums and singles released this week:

BASTILLE — Wild World (iTunes)
This is the second studio album for the popular British indie pop group, led by singer and songwriter Dan Smith. Though “Good Grief” isn’t nearly as big as “Pompeii” was, it’s still a significant top five single on the Alternative radio listing. Look for it to land in the top ten next week, with a likely #1 entry on the U.K. chart (and probably a number of other international lists.)

JASON ALDEAN — They Don’t Know (iTunes)
Country superstar Aldean does know how to create big singles and albums, so it’s not going to be a surprise to see this set in the top three (and maybe even #1) next week. The current single from it is “A Little More Summertime”, which needs “a little more” time on the radio to reach its maximum potential.

GROUPLOVE — Big Mess (iTunes)
The California rockers are hoping for some big results with their third studio album, which features “Welcome To Your Life”, a top 15 hit on the Alternative chart. They have a ways to go (see what I did there?) before they can claim another top ten, but the album’s debut should give it a good boost.

GAVIN DEGRAW — Something Worth Saving (iTunes)
DeGraw’s latest effort is led by “She Sets The City On Fire”, which is burning up the top 20 at the Hot AC format. Will this single give him his first top ten in four years? Last time around, “Not Over You” spent a week at #1 in January 2012. A debut in the top 20 for this set sounds about right.

THE HEAD AND THE HEART — Signs Of Life (iTunes)
“All We Ever Knew” is the current #1 on Triple A radio, so its chart life on the airwaves can’t get much better. As for its entrance on the Billboard 200, well, that may be a different story. Still, look for it to do some solid numbers.

More albums out this week: Jacob Whitesides‘s Why? (iTunes), Karmin‘s Leo Rising (iTunes), KT Tunstall‘s KIN (iTunes), LOLO‘s In Memory Of When I Gave A S**t (iTunes), Of Mice & Men‘s Cold World (iTunes), The Time Jumpers‘s Kid Sister (iTunes), Wilco‘s Schmilco (iTunes), Willie Bobo‘s Dig My Feeling (iTunes)

More EPs out this week: Ofelia K‘s Chaos Cave (iTunes)

New digital-only singles that you can buy this week include:
“Fire Escape”, Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness (iTunes)
“Here’s To The Farmer”, Luke Bryan (iTunes)
“Influence”, Tove Lo featuring Wiz Khalifa (iTunes)
“Knockout”, Bon Jovi (iTunes)
“My Favorite Part”, Mac Miller featuring Ariana Grande (iTunes)
“Perfect Illusion”, Lady Gaga (iTunes)
“Recovering”, Celine Dion (iTunes)
“Revolution Radio, Green Day (iTunes)
“Singing Low”, The Fray (iTunes)
“Small World”, Idina Menzel (iTunes)
“The Greatest”, Sia featuring Kendrick Lamar (iTunes)
“Waste A Moment”, Kings Of Leon (iTunes)
“WildHorse”, RaeLynn (iTunes)

We’ll see you next week for new releases from Mac Miller, Phantogram, Usher and more.

TURN IT UP TUESDAY: What’s New In Stores This Week (October 7)

"Down" for the top spot.

“Down” for the top spot.

It’s October already? Crazy how time flies and how many copies are gonna fly off the shelves when the big boys and girls come out to play in Q4. Here’s what albums and singles are in stores for the week of October 7:

  • Expectations are very high for the sixth studio album by Country supestar Jason Aldean. Those last five sets, at the very least, have been certified Platinum and he’s hoping that his latest, Old Boots, New Dirt, will continue that trend. Single “Burnin’ It Down” is preparing for a run atop the Country chart in a few weeks. Time to throw a lasso around this winner. (iTunes)
  • Following a well-deserved break after a three year period (2008-2010) when rockers Weezer released one album a year, they return to stores with Everything Will Be Alright In The End, featuring the current Alternative top ten hit “Back To The Shack”. They’ve been welcomed back by their core format, so expect this one to do moderately well. (iTunes)
  • She’s been all over the Rhythmic and Urban airwaves (and creeping up the CHR survey) with her debut release “2 On”. Now, R&B singer Tinashe gets her zodiac on with Aquarius, which also features the followup “Pretend”. It’s likely to debut high based on that success, but we’ll see if she can sustain herself on the radio. (iTunes)
  • Coming off his #1 AAA hit “Take Me To Church” and its subsequent crossover, Irish singer Hozier is out with his debut self-titled album. With strong pre-orders already securing a top ten debut for the effort, it’s anyone guess as to how high this one will go. Look for it to be strong through the holidays. (iTunes)
  • Other releases out this week include: Alex & Sierra‘s It’s About Us (iTunes), Bela Fleck & Abigail Washburn‘s Bela Fleck & Abigail Washburn (iTunes), Betty Who‘s Take Me When You Go (iTunes), Broods‘s Evergreen (iTunes), Flying Lotus‘s You’re Dead! (iTunes), Jackson Browne‘s Standing In The Breach (iTunes), Jim Brickman‘s On A Winter’s Night: The Songs And Spirit Of Christmas (iTunes), Keyshia Cole‘s Point Of No Return (iTunes), Minnie Driver‘s Ask Me To Dance (iTunes), New Found Glory‘s Resurrection (iTunes), Sixx: AM‘s Modern Vintage (iTunes), Stevie Nicks‘s 24 Karat Gold: Songs From The Vault (iTunes), The Piano Guys‘s Wonders (iTunes), Yellowcard‘s Lift A Sail (iTunes) and the original soundtrack to The Best Of Me (iTunes).

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

  • “Dangerous”, the second collaboration from DJ David Guetta and singer Sam Martin. (iTunes)

Next week, Florida-Georgia Line, Hoodie Allen, Jessie J and U2 are among the likely top ten debuts of the pack. A full preview, including more great albums from Andrew McMachon In The Wilderness, Idina Menzel and Mary Lambert, is coming in seven!
