6 New Albums to Listen to This Month
Get ready for some serious girl jams
Real talk: It’s been a while since we’ve updated our playlists. Not that T. Swift’s 1989 wasn’t a delicious album, but we’re in desperate need of something beyond “Bad Blood” for the 11 millionth time. Enter these six super-hyped albums, all debuting this month. Get at us, Adele!
She’s ba-aack. Five years after 21, the smash-hit reason you went through ten boxes of tissues in as many days, Adele has returned with what’s sure to be another crusher. If the first single, “Hello” (which broke the single-day viewing record with 27.7 million), is any indication, we’ll be downloading the entire album when it’s released November 20.
Listen to: “Hello”
sara bareilles, “what’s inside”
You might have seen the great 2007 movie Waitress. Well, that was turned into a 2013 musical of the same name, which was scored by "Brave" singer Bareilles. She's now releasing it as a special album, as Waitress finally prepares to open on Broadway in March.
Listen to: “I Choose You”
ellie goulding, “delirium”
British singer Goulding burst on the scene with 2010's Lights, which she followed up with the equally well-received Halcyon in 2012. But this time, Goulding set out to make a lighter, more mainstream pop album. These tracks are fun, dance-y and pretty much guaranteed to get stuck in your head.
Listen to: “On My Mind”
grimes, “art angels”
For those who aren't up on Grimes, she's a singer and songwriter whose music skews toward electronic and pop, with hints of R&B and hip-hop. Basically, no one can accuse her of being unoriginal. She's back with another eclectic album that varies wildly from track to track, making it so there’s something for pretty much every type of fan.
Listen to: “Flesh Without Blood/Life in the Vivid Dream”
alessia cara, “know it all”
New artist alert! At just 19 years old, Canadian singer Alessia Cara is winning over the R&B world with her smooth, jazzy, beyond-her-years voice. And she’s winning over us with the fact that her first single (“Here”) is an ode to people who don’t like going to parties.
