NEW MUSIC FRIDAY: Releases For The Week of July 15, 2016

Who ya gonna buy?

Who ya gonna buy?

Our thoughts and prayers are with the people of Nice after this tragic evening. As you know, music can heal during these sad times, and I hope you’ll find something positive in the mix this week. Here are the new and notable albums and singles:

  • NEEDTOBREATHE — H A R D L O V E (iTunes)
    • Sometimes, our favorite acts forget to switch off the Caps Lock button when typing. In the case of this South Carolina band, they seem to be embracing it. THE LEAD– ahem, the lead single from their latest album, “HAPPINESS”, is top five at Christian CHR/Hot AC radio, and in the top 50 at regular Hot AC radio. Look for this to score a top ten debut.
  • VARIOUS ARTISTS — Ghostbusters (Soundtrack) (iTunes)
    • Featuring singles from 5 Seconds Of Summer, Elle King and G-Eazy, one of the summer’s hottest soundtracks is now in stores and scaring up a storm. (Proton packs sold separately.) Look for the set to score some heavy stream and track-equivalent units, with a final total depending on how large the opening weekend for the film is.
  • DAVID NAIL — Fighter (iTunes)
    • Nail’s “Night’s On Fire” has been in the top 50 on Country radio for 45 (!) weeks, and it still hasn’t made the top ten. A bit much, yes? You can find that, and collaborations with acts like the Brothers Osborne and Vince Gill, on here.
  • DIRTY HEADS — Dirty Heads (iTunes)
    • The California band is still climbing up the Alternative chart with their latest hit, “That’s All I Need”. Two years ago, it was Sound Of Change that gave them their first top ten album on the Billboard 200. Can they make it 2-for-2?
  • More albums out this week: Bright Light Bright Light‘s Choreography (iTunes), Clams Casino‘s 32 Levels (iTunes), Dreezy‘s No Hard Feelings (iTunes), Good Charlotte‘s Youth Authority (iTunes), Hillsong United‘s Of Dirt And Grace (Live From The Land (iTunes), Jeff Beck‘s Loud Hailer (iTunes), Steven Tyler‘s We’re All Somebody From Somewhere (iTunes), Kidz Bop 32 (iTunes)
  • More EPs out this week: Cardboard Kids‘s Mint (iTunes)

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

  • “Cruel”, Snakehips featuring Zayn (iTunes)
  • “F**k With Myself”, BANKS (iTunes)
  • “If He Ain’t Gonna Love You”, Jake Owen (iTunes)
  • “In My Blood”, Leo Stannard (iTunes)
  • “Jungle Youth”, Young The Giant (iTunes)
  • “Make Me”, Britney Spears featuring G-Eazy (iTunes)
  • “Rise”, Katy Perry (iTunes)
  • “Romantic”, Stanaj (iTunes)
  • “She Sets The City On Fire”, Gavin DeGraw (iTunes)
  • “Solving Problems”, Brent Cobb (iTunes)
  • “Something Wild”, Lindsey Sterling featuring Andrew McMahon In The Wilderness (iTunes)
  • “Starving”, Hailee Steinfeld & Grey featuring Zedd (iTunes)
  • “Superlove”, Tinashe (iTunes)
  • “Unstoppable”, The Score (iTunes)
  • “Welcome To Your Life”, Grouplove (iTunes)

We’ll see you next week for new releases from HONNE, Keith SweatLil Durk and more.

TURN IT UP TUESDAY: What’s New In Stores This Week (April 15)

Looking for breathing room.

Looking for breathing room in the top five.

Out of all the releases on the schedule this week, these ones get to the “Heart” of the charts. Where exactly will they land? Here’s what albums and singles are in stores for the week of April 15:

  • One of this week’s top new releases comes from rockers NEEDTOBREATHE and their fifth studio album, Rivers In The Wasteland. Lead single “The Heart” is currently at AAA radio. Given that their last effort debuted in the top ten on the Billboard 200, look for this to as well, with a good chance of entering the top five. (iTunes)
  • Singer/songwriter Ingrid Michaelson‘s Lights Out lights up record stores this week; it’s her first album release since 2012. “Girls Chase Boys” is currently gaining airplay at several formats and should carry the album to an easy top five debut given her decent fan base. (iTunes)
  • Last year, while Jason Derulo charted moderately in Europe with album called Tattoos, his U.S. audience only received a five song EP of the same name. Now, that full-length effort gets a Stateside release as Talk Dirty, named after his recent hit. Derulo’s never been a big seller when it comes to albums, so don’t except impressive numbers with this. Still, a top ten debut is very much in the cards. (iTunes)
  • Popular metal band Sevendust are back and their latest is titled Time Travelers & Bonfires. It’s an all acoustic album, featuring both new material and reworked versions of some of their classics. (iTunes)
  • Rapper Nas‘s classic Illmatic album turns 20 this month; now, Illmatic XX, a deluxe rerelease with new packaging and bonus material, is in stores today.  (iTunes)
  • Other releases out this week include: Afghan Whigs‘s Do To The Beast (iTunes), Billy Porter‘s Billy’s Back On Broadway (iTunes), Breathe Carolina‘s Savages (iTunes), Dan Wilson‘s Love Without Fear (iTunes), Emerson Hart‘s Beauty In Disrepair (iTunes), Ian Anderson‘s Homo Erraticus (iTunes), Justin Nozuka‘s Ulysses (iTunes), Paolo Nutini‘s Iron Sky (EP) (iTunes), Rodney Crowell‘s Tarpaper Sky (iTunes), Secret Sisters‘s Put Your Needle Down (iTunes) and The Both‘s The Both (iTunes).

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

  • “Heart’s On Fire”, a new digital single from Passenger. (iTunes)
  • “Human”, the latest pre-release track from Cher Lloyd. (iTunes)
  • “Love Runs Out”, new from OneRepublic from the re-release of their album Native. (iTunes)
  • “Not In That Way”, another digital track from singer Sam Smith. (iTunes)
  • “West Coast”, the first single from Lana Del Rey‘s forthcoming album. (iTunes)

Next week, rapper Iggy Azalea‘s The New Classic and electro-rockers Neon Trees‘s Pop Psychology are among the schedule’s top new releases. A full preview is coming in seven!
