NEW MUSIC FRIDAY: Releases For The Week of October 21, 2016

Going gaga for Bublé.

Going gaga for Michael.

Just as the leaves turn those vibrant colors, so too does the release schedule for new music, chock-full of bright young stars and shining established acts. Rake in those records, because here are the notable albums and singles out this week:

MICHAEL BUBLÉ — Nobody But Me (iTunes)
Canadian crooner Bublé hopes to grab his fifth #1 album in the U.S. with this effort, which is his first studio album in over three years. The title track from it is approaching the top ten on the AC chart, while it recently entered the top 50 on the Hot AC chart. There are a couple of collaborations of note, including one with pop singer Meghan Trainor on the cut “Someday”. Though it won’t approach the first week sales of some of his prior efforts, the upper demo will drive this record to a potential #1 entry.

LADY GAGA — Joanne (iTunes)
After the messy era that was ARTPOP, this New York performer has been making some big moves over the past few years, from a chart-topping jazz album with Tony Bennett, to a Golden Globe win for American Horror Story: Hotel, to big performances on the Grammy Awards and at the Super Bowl. Unfortunately, her latest musical era is off to a rocky start. “Perfect Illusion” has struggled, and reviews for the set are mixed. Still, it should earn a top five debut (#1 is possible!) on the album chart.

D.R.A.M. — Big Baby D.R.A.M. (iTunes)
Ain’t no tellin’ what kind of numbers this album will do during the week, but given the big success of single “Broccoli”, its overall units are likely to be higher. Of course, this performer had a smaller radio hit in “Cha Cha” last year, although it was pulled from Urban radio as Drake‘s “Hotline Bling” began to take off. Luckily, the Virginia native is doing quite well for himself now.

JIMMY EAT WORLD — Integrity Blues (iTunes)
They’ve been charting in the States since 2001, and Blues marks the Arizona group’s ninth studio album since their self-titled set in 1994. First single “Sure And Certain” sits just below the top ten on Alternative radio, their highest-charting song in six years.

SAINT MOTEL — Saintmotelevision (iTunes)
This California band released their first album independently four years ago. Their latest set includes first single “Move”, which is moving along in the top 20 on the Alternative chart. Don’t change the channel yet; this album is bound to be a good one.

Christmas albums out this week: Amy Grant‘s Tennessee Christmas (iTunes), Pentatonix‘s A Pentatonix Christmas (iTunes), R. Kelly‘s 12 Nights Of Christmas (iTunes), Rascal Flatts‘s The Greatest Gift Of All (iTunes), Sarah McLachlan‘s Wonderland (iTunes)

More albums out this week: Chris Tomlin‘s Never Lose Sight (iTunes), Elvis Presley with The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra‘s The Wonder Of You (iTunes), Korn‘s The Serenity Of Suffering (iTunes), Leonard Cohen‘s You Want It Darker (iTunes), Sia‘s This Is Acting (Deluxe Edition) (iTunes), The Pretty Reckless‘s Who You Selling For (iTunes), Tyler Glenn‘s Excommunication (iTunes)
