NEW MUSIC FRIDAY: Releases For The Week of August 28, 2015

Everybody's working for The Weeknd.

Everybody’s working for The Weeknd.

This week’s New Music Friday serves up some melodic madness, showcasing two notable sets that may stick around the top tier of the chart, and a number of big instant grat tracks and new singles. Here’s a look at the week’s new album and single releases:

  • THE WEEKND — Beauty Behind The Madness (iTunes)
    • It’s sure to have one of the biggest openings of the year, and given the Canadian performer’s two pop radio #1’s in the last three months, the hits are likely to keep on coming through next year. As this post goes up, “Can’t Feel My Face” and “The Hills” occupy the top two positions on iTunes. Look for the album to easily be #1, and we’ll see if it can make it to a second week should its opening frame exceed expectations.
  • HALSEY — Badlands (iTunes)
    • After stalling beneath the top 50 on Alternative radio earlier this year with “Ghost”, which was first aired on Hits 1 last summer, this 20-year-old New Jersey singer, born Ashley Frangipane, is making waves with “New Americana” at both radio and retail. Her debut album should land in the runner-up spot on next week’s chart.
  • MADDIE & TAE — Start Here (iTunes)
    • They topped the Country survey for a week in December with the hit “Girl In A Country Song”, and after an album delay, these two ladies from Nashville are ready to start their journey on the Billboard 200. Current release “Fly” is flirting with the top ten on Country radio at the moment.
  • More albums out this week: Atlas Genius‘s Inanimate Objects (iTunes), Audra Day‘s Cheers To The Fall (iTunes), Beach House‘s Depression Cherry (iTunes), Ben Rector‘s Brand New (iTunes), Foals‘s What Went Down (iTunes), Kottonmouth Kings‘s Krown Power (iTunes), Motörhead‘s Bad Magic (iTunes), Soilwork‘s The Ride Majestic (iTunes), Van Morrison‘s The Essential Van Morrison (iTunes), the soundtrack (in a Special Version) to Pitch Perfect 2 (iTunes)
  • More EPs out this week: Alessia Cara‘s Four Pink Walls (iTunes), Frankie‘s Dreamstate (iTunes), Nichole Nordeman‘s The Unmaking (iTunes), ZZ Ward‘s Love And War (iTunes)

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

  • “Boom”, Simple Plan (iTunes)

  • “Change The Channel”, Francesco Yates (iTunes)
  • “Circles”, Jana Kramer (iTunes)
