TURN IT UP TUESDAY: What’s New In Stores This Week (August 20)

Makin' "Paper".

Another day in Paradise.

Whether you’re running to the rodeo or cuddling up at the coffee shop, it’s music connecting those two hot spots this week for your list of releases out today, August 20:

  • Biggest week of the release comes from GRAMMY-winning singer and songwriter John Mayer. His sixth studio album, Paradise Valley, features collaborations with Frank Ocean and girlfriend Katy Perry. Two singles from it have been released thus far: “Paper Doll” and “Wildfire”. It will likely open at #2 behind Luke Bryan‘s Crash My Party, though it does have a slight chance of debuting at #1. (iTunes)
  • He’s wasted away again, but not in Margaritaville. Jimmy Buffett continues his island party with Songs From St. Somewhere, featuring a recent duet with Toby Keith, “Too Drunk To Karaoke”. It’s a hot seller on Amazon and could be top ten next week.  (iTunes)
  • Denver-based band The Lumineers have already gone Platinum with their debut self-titled album; now, a deluxe edition is out this week featuring a few new tracks and[ a cover of “This Must Be The Place (Naive Melody)” by Talking Heads. (iTunes)
