NEW MUSIC FRIDAY: Releases For The Week of June 16, 2017

Praise the Lorde.

Take a drive down the musical highway, hit the “Green Light” and speed off into a schedule full of great releases for this Friday. Here are the notable albums and singles you can check out now:

LORDE – Melodrama (iTunes)
My top pick for this week is the sophomore album by this New Zealand singer and songwriter, who is coming off a number of notable television and festival performances so far this year. The album’s first single, “Green Light”, climbed as high as #8 on the Alternative chart, as well as #19 at Top 40, while “Perfect Places” is just beginning its run at the former format. Though the era’s had its share of missteps, the album should have a good debut in the top five (or higher) next week.

2 CHAINZ – Pretty Girls Like Trap Music (iTunes)
This Georgia rapper has reached the top five on the Billboard 200 with 3 Albumz, but only his 2012 debut went all the way to the top of both that and the R&B survey. The set features former top ten Urban radio hit “Good Drank”, with Gucci Mane and Quavo, and current single “It’s A Vibe”, which features Ty Dolla $ign, Trey Songz and Jhené Aiko. It is a contender for the highest debut of the week, so stay tuned to see where it lands.

PORTUGAL. THE MAN – Woodstock (iTunes)
The new release from this Alaska band may not be as legendary as the 1969 musical festival, but it does have a lot of super music that you can experience. Of course, this album is led by “Feel It Still”, which is very close to reaching the #1 spot at the Alternative format. (It’s also beginning a cross to Hot AC.) You may recognize it from the new ad for Apple’s iPad Pro. It should have a nice debut.

ROYAL BLOOD – How Did We Get So Dark? (iTunes)
The English duo of Mike Kerr and Ben Thatcher made quite an impression on the rock world three years ago with a self-titled album. Now, they return with a highly-anticipated set, featuring the Active Rock hit “Lights Out”. Watch for Dark to see the light somewhere in the top ten.

More albums out this week: Beth Ditto‘s Fake Sugar (iTunes), Big Boi‘s BOOMIVERSE (iTunes), Cheap Trick‘s We’re All Alright! (iTunes), CKY‘s The Phoenix (iTunes), Crystal Bowersox‘s Alive (iTunes), Eli Young Band‘s Fingertips (iTunes), Fleet Foxes‘s Crack-Up (iTunes), Hey Violet‘s From The Outside (iTunes), Jason Isbell & The 400 Unit‘s The Nashville Sound (iTunes), Nickelback‘s Feed The Machine (iTunes)
