Upcoming Album of the Week (Ending November 24, 2018)

The Creed II soundtrack was released this past week (the movie came out on Wednesday). I'm excited for the movie, but looking at the tracklist, the soundtrack should be good, as well. The album includes contributions from Rae Sremmurd, Bon Iver, Vince Staples, and Kendrick Lamar.

I hope that everyone had a great Thanksgiving! As always, check out the new music I'm looking forward to over at my Upcoming Releases page!

Recently, DAWN announced her fifth solo album, new breed.

DAWN (aka D∆WN, aka Dawn Richard) started her career as a member of the made-on-TV girl band, Danity Kane. The group disbanded in 2009, at which point she embarked on a solo career and proved her work to be far more interesting than the R&B/pop of Danity Kane.

While still in the general R&B space, her own work is more experimental, punctuated by a trilogy of concept albums ending with 2016's Redemption. She's released various one-off singles and videos since, and featured on the closing track of Dirty Projector's 2017 self-titled album.



The new album was announced on November 7, along with a new song, "new breed." The album will be released on January 25.
