NEW MUSIC FRIDAY: Releases For The Week of May 11, 2018

The moment of Puth.

Yes, Mother’s Day is approaching quickly, and while this certainly isn’t the mother of all release weeks, there are still lots of top titles to be enjoyed by both you and your mama. Here are the notable digital and physical releases making moves this Friday:

CHARLIE PUTH – Voicenotes (iTunes)
Featuring “Attention”, “How Long” and the Kehlani-assisted “Done For Me”, Puth’s new album is already packed with radio records, with a number of other cuts likely to hit the charts in the coming months. The performer’s debut album, Nine Track Mind, peaked at #6 in early 2016. Though it’ll be faced with several streaming-led urban releases as competitors, Puth’s effort has the potential to break the top five.

ARCTIC MONKEYS – Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino (iTunes)
No songs from this album were issued prior to its release date, a rarity in the business nowadays, so it’ll be interesting to see how their fans react to it. (Initial critical reviews of the set range from mixed to positive.) The group’s most recent studio album, 2013’s AM, entered at #6 on the Billboard 200; their new set could be headed into the top ten as well.

Notable albums out this week: Beach House‘s 7 (iTunes), Brent Cobb‘s Providence Canyon (iTunes), courtship.‘s Denial In Paradise (iTunes), Marian Hill‘s Unusual (iTunes), Sevendust‘s All I See Is War (iTunes)

NEW MUSIC FRIDAY: Releases For The Week of October 2, 2015

Don't sleeep on this one.

Don’t sleeep on this one.

This week’s New Music Friday leads our rhythm nation into one of the cool comeback stories of the year, with a handful of other new sets trying to take control from Miss Jackson (if they’re nasty.) Here’s a look at the week’s new album and single releases:

  • JANET JACKSON — Unbreakable (iTunes)
    • It’s been all work and “No Sleeep” for the legendary performer as she continues her World Tour through the end of November before a break until the start of the year. Meanwhile, her first studio album in seven years is in stores. It features the aforementioned “Sleeep”, a #1 on the Urban AC chart, while second single “BURNITUP!” (with Missy Elliott) was recently serviced to radio. Look for it to be one of next week’s top debuts.
  • TAMAR BRAXTON — Calling All Lovers (iTunes)
    • With her role on the daytime talk show The Real and her new single gaining at radio called “Catfish”, Braxton has a good presence in the media today. Back in 2013, her Love And War album debuted at #2 on the Billboard 200, and though her opening frame may not be as large this time, she could potentially find herself in the top five again.
  • AVICII — Stories (iTunes)
    • It’s been a rough time for this DJ/producer at radio here over the past year or so, with two singles pulled at the last minute, another single that stalled beneath the top 40 and a current one (“For A Better Day”) that’s doing very little outside of overnight spins. Perhaps his latest studio album will perform slightly better.
  • SEVENDUST — Kill The Flaw (iTunes)
    • This Atlanta group has been on the rock scene since the mid-90’s, and their latest effort is their first studio set since the spring of 2013. Single “Thank You” is in the top 20 on the Active Rock chart. Since 2003, they’ve had a string of top 20 debuts (six studio albums in a row.) Will this be the seventh to do so?
  • More albums out this week: Clutch‘s Psychic Warfare (iTunes), Collective Soul‘s See What You Started By Continuing (iTunes), Dave East‘s Hate Me Now (iTunes), Eagles Of Death Metal‘s Zipper Down (iTunes), Falls‘s Omaha (iTunes), For Today‘s Wake (iTunes), Joe Bonamassa‘s Live At Radio City Music Hall (iTunes), Matt Nathanson‘s Show Me Your Fangs (iTunes), Paul McCartney‘s reissues of Pipes Of Peace (iTunes) and Tug Of War (iTunes), Queensryche‘s Condition Human (iTunes), Rudimental‘s We The Generation (iTunes), The Winery Dogs‘s Hot Streak (iTunes), Trivium‘s Silence In The Snow (iTunes)
  • More EPs out this week:

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

  • “Carter & Cash”, Tor Miller (iTunes)
  • “Me & The Rhythm”, Selena Gomez (iTunes)
  • “Player”, Tinashe (iTunes)
  • “Something To Believe In”, A Silent Film (iTunes)
  • “Testarossa Music”, ZHU (iTunes)
  • “Victorious”, Panic! At The Disco (iTunes)
  • “Wake Up”, The Vamps (iTunes)

Next Friday, our preview will include new albums from R. City, Selena Gomez, The Game and more. See you then!

TURN IT UP TUESDAY: What’s New In Stores This Week (Mar. 26)

Sure be cool if he was #1.

Sure be cool if he was #1.

There’s a hodgepodge of hits on the radar this week; lots of big releases across all genres. Here’s some of what you’ll find in stores this Tuesday, March 26:

  • Country singer Blake Shelton has a new studio album out today, Based On A True Story…, his eighth full-length album. Lead single “Sure Be Cool If You Did” is the current #1 Country single. It comes out just as the fourth season of The Voice premiered last night, on which Shelton is a judge. (iTunes)
  • After a serious issue for which he was hospitalized just a week ago, Lil Wayne puts out a sequel to his 2010 album, I Am Not A Human Being. “Love Me”, featuring rappers Drake and Future, is the big single from I Am Not A Human Being II, currently at #2 on Urban radio and #9 on the Hot 100. (iTunes)
  • Married Country duo Thompson Square, best known for their 2011 Country #1 hit, “Are You Gonna Kiss Me Or Not?”, are back with their second album this week. Just Feels Good features their current top ten single on the same chart, “If I Didn’t Have You”. (iTunes)
  • With their first album since 2009, English electro-rockers Depeche Mode release their thirteenth album to date, Delta Machine. Two singles have been released from the effort to date: “Heaven” and “Soothe My Soul”. (iTunes)
  • The third album from electro-pop band OneRepublic is out today, Native. “If I Lose Myself” is the current single from the album, and it’s not the monster that “Apologize” was. (iTunes)
  • Rockers The Strokes are back with another album, Comedown Machine. Lead single “All The Time” is garnering some minor airplay at Alternative radio. (iTunes)
  • Already a top-ten selling album in many European countries, singer-songwriter Dido is out with her newest release in North America, Girl Who Got Away. (iTunes)
  • Metal band Sevendust are back with their first album since 2010, Black Out The Sun. It’s their ninth studio album overall. (iTunes)
  • Newcomer to the Country chart Maggie Rose, who previously charted under the name Margaret Durante, puts out her first full-length album this week, Cut To Impress. (iTunes)
  • Alan Jackson, who’s been faltering recently on the Country chart, goes for gospel this time on the more traditional-sounding Precious Memories, Volume II. (iTunes)
  • Finally, former American Idol runner-up Crystal Bowersox trades All This For That on her second album, released today. (iTunes)

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

  • “Boomerang”, a great new single from Canada’s Barenaked Ladies. (iTunes)
  • “The Way”, a single from Nickelodeon star Ariana Grande and rapper Mac Miller. (iTunes)
  • “We Up”, another release from 50 Cent‘s forthcoming Street King Immortal. It features Kendrick Lamar. (iTunes)
