New Year New Albums
New Year New Albums
It’s a new year and we have a lot to look forward to in the music world. Dua Lipa, the London dark pop singer/songwriter is dropping her self-titled debut album in February. Also early this year Drake will deliver More Life . This next album promised to be the exclamation mark to the end of Drake’s wickedly successful 2016. Can’t believe he’s already throwing new music at us! Spring is expected to end the four year long wait for Lorde’s much anticipated sophomore outing. Also this spring, Charli XCX plans to drop her next LP saying “Most of the songs on the album are about partying or about falling in love with someone after partying”. Sounds like a solid album plan to me! Kelly Clarkson is setting a summer release that is a return to classic soul. Saying it is “the record that has been in me since junior high”. Seems like it’s been since junior high since Christina Aguilera’s last full-length. Rumor has it this is the year she will present a new LP. And can we seriously go a third year without a new Taylor Swift album?! I have my money and my hopes on Taylor LP6 arriving before Christmas. After a very explosive split from Fifth Harmony and a huge hit with Machine Gun Kelly, Camila Cabello is on track (be it just whispers) to drop her first solo endeavor. Another past group member that shook things up upon departure, Niall Horan says his upcoming work will have a “folk-with-pop feel to it”. Justin Timberlake reportedly has at least six great tracks in the can but will we see his album this year? Justin says… “I guess I’m resigned to the fact that I’m a tortoise when it comes to this process.” So I’m sticking with cautious optimism. Back in 2015 Katy Perry’s manager said the pop star’s fourth album would be out by 2016. Since then studio update tweets have hinted at a not so far off release that I am counting on!
