It’s that time of year again, the moment music listeners have all been waiting patiently for.
The leaves are falling and new releases are dropping from some of the most popular artists today. From Lana Del Rey’s third LP to Mac Miller’s two year work of progress, music enthusiasts are going to have countless genres to choose from.
So let the build up of anticipation be no more. These albums are now on the shelves. Have you made your purchase, yet?
Lana Del Rey, “Honeymoon”
Release Date: Sept. 18
Lana has always kept her loyal fans pleased and wanting more. She has released a new album roughly once a year and is not about to let her fans down anytime soon.
Her last album, “Ultraviolet” was a big hit with a jazzy, rock sound to it. Her third LP, “Honeymoon,” is just as influenced by the jazz scene.
Mac Miller, ‘Good A.M.’
Release Date: Sept. 18
Mac Miller really gained our attention with his debut album “Blue Slide Park,” which was No. 1 back in 2011. Since then he has dropped a number of albums that have all been pleasingly diverse in sound.
His newest album, “Good A.M.,” is said to have taken over two years to finish. Mac has proven that he’s still got it with his signature sound and flowing lyrics.
Selena Gomez, ‘Revival‘
Release Date: Oct. 9
She has finally found her voice. Graduating from her “Wizards of Waverly Place“ days and featuring a new mature sound, Gomez has shed her old skin and emerged a pop queen.
With artist A$AP Rocky, the new album is a mix sonic dance beats and heartbreak ballads that have given Gomez a grown up and provocative image, while still staying true to herself.
Release Date: Sep. 25
Can the two-year-old debut album “Settle” be topped? Disclosure, the EDM group that launched Sam Smith’s career has released their second record, “Caracal,” and they have definitely impressed, but have they met the “Latch” standards? Including guest artists like The Weeknd, Lorde and Miguel, none have become an instant hit like those on their first album, but time will tell.
Ellie Goulding, ‘Delirium’
Release Date: Nov. 6
Known as the dance-tunes queen, Ellie Goulding is expected to top her last two albums with “Delirium.” She’s already released two tracks, and they have become instant hits. With guests like Max Martin, Ryan Tedder and Disclosure, Goulding worked with everyone, and her work isn’t going unnoticed. We hope that the rest of the album is as good as the previews!
Drake, ‘Views From the 6‘
Release Date: TBA
Has the Canadian rapper done it again? Drake got all of his fans hyped up with his recent Meek Mill disc “Back to Back,” and following that hot track, Drake and Future brought the heat with a surprise mix tape, “What A Time To Be Alive.”
Since Drake has been busy releasing all of his mix tapes, his album,“Views From The 6,” has been put on hold. Drake recently gave an update, saying he will be heading back to the studio to finish off the long-awaited record.
With a Beyoncé collaboration announced on the track list, this may be Drake’s best album yet. But will “Views From The 6” beat platinum-selling “If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late?” Stay tuned.
