NEW MUSIC FRIDAY: Releases For The Week of June 8, 2018

Tomorrow slays today.

Will a jam band keep it sticky on the survey? Will two ghost hunters chase their way to #1? So many questions and not enough answers to them! These are the notable digital and physical releases headed into the market this Friday:

However, it should also debut in the top ten overall.
