With the New Year coming soon, new sound is also on its way. All genres are coming out, from alternative to rap and country to pop. While not all artists have release dates, anticipation should build after the ball drops.
Train – January
Entitled “A Girl A Bottle A Boat,” Train’s newest album comes out early next year to the enjoyment of several fans.
The first single from the album, “Play That Song,” was released on Sept. 29. It’s definitely the kind of sound that Train fans should enjoy: upbeat, fun to sing along to and gets stuck in your head after the first listen.
If you were a fan of “Drops of Jupiter” or “Hey Soul Sister,” then consider checking this album out when it’s released in January.
Iggy Azalea – January
This album is a long time coming, with the artist in production for the last two years, at least. Through planning a tour after her first album, to cancelling it, to rescheduling, Iggy has had a rough time for the last few years.
Her new album, “Digital Distortion” is set to release early in 2017, but songs from it have already been out for quite some time. “Team” and “Azillion” have both been out, to varying degrees of success.
Iggy’s new album should be pretty decent, but most fans can’t get past how problematic Azalea can be.
Brad Paisley – February
For all the country fans out there, Brad Paisley is coming out with his 11th studio album right around Valentine’s Day. Entitled “Love and War,” this album promotes a lot of collaborations.
Paisley announced his new album at a performance in the iHeartRadio Theater in Los Angeles, where he said his new album would feature Demi Lovato, Mick Jagger and Timbaland. Lead singles “Without a Fight” and “Today” are out now. They have a classic country sound that pleases country fans and many others alike.
Kelly Clarkson – June
Kelly Clarkson is coming out with a new album next year with a new record label. After winning American Idol in 2002, Clarkson has worked with RCA Records and released six full-length albums. However, the artist would like to release more soulful music, which she feels can be best accomplished at Atlantic Records.
While no songs have been released yet to tease the album, several heartfelt ballads from the award-winning singer are expected.
