NEW MUSIC FRIDAY: Releases For The Week of April 13, 2018

He’s back in Town.

Coming to a town near you… only the best releases by the artists you know and love. (Just make sure you spend some of your tax refund on music, okay?) Here are the albums and singles you need to check out on digital services and in stores this Friday:

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.

Stay tuned to see what happens.

BAZZI – Cosmic (iTunes)
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.
