NEW MUSIC FRIDAY: Releases For The Week of October 5, 2018

Star is bright.

Go Gaga over this week’s top new releases, including a buzzing soundtrack, the latest set for a country hitmaker and duos galore! These are the notable digital and physical releases hitting the market today:

LADY GAGA & BRADLEY COOPER – A Star Is Born (Soundtrack) (iTunes)
Debuting the same weekend that its parent film opens at the box office, both the soundtrack and movie will attract a lot of people in the next few days. On the music side, “Shallow”, which was released last week, remains strong at #1 on iTunes. Also, the ballad “I’ll Never Love Again”, a radio single from the album, is expected to have one of the larger spikes following the film’s debut. Will it be enough to debut at #1 on the Billboard 200? We’ll see how well or not the movie does.

ERIC CHURCH – Desperate Man (iTunes)
Country star Church is well on his way to another high-charting entry, given his four top ten releases since the start of the decade on the Billboard 200 list. Led by the title track, a top 20 hit on the country radio survey, a combination of his passionate fan base and a lot of critical love should make the performer’s latest era a long and lasting one.

TWENTY ONE PILOTS – Trench (iTunes)
The duo’s new album is led by the radio singles “Jumpsuit”, which spent a week at #1 on the Alternative chart, and “My Blood”, a top ten song at the same format and now crossing to the Hot AC and Top 40 airwaves. Will it do as well as Blurryface, which had a string of huge crossover hits like “Stressed Out” and “Ride”? Stay tuned.

FOR KING & COUNTRY – Burn The Ships (iTunes)
Brother, can you spare a hit? The Australian siblings had a joyful time atop the Christian AC chart with “joy.”, which is also rising in the lower rungs of the Hot AC survey. The duo’s last studio album in 2014 just missed the top ten on the Billboard 200, but it’s likely that this one will enter the region.

Notable albums out this week: Castlecomer‘s Castlecomer (iTunes), Cat Power‘s Wanderer (iTunes), Emily Warren‘s Quiet Your Mind (iTunes), Eric Hutchinson & The Believers‘s Modern Happiness (iTunes), KT Tunstall‘s Wax (iTunes), LANY‘s Malibu Nights (iTunes), Mario‘s Dancing Shadows (iTunes), Matt Nathanson‘s Sings His Sad Heart (iTunes), Max Frost‘s Gold Rush (iTunes), Steve Perry‘s Traces (iTunes), T.I.‘s Dime Trap (iTunes), You Me At Six‘s VI (iTunes)
