10 Albums We Can’t Wait To Hear In 2017

Share on

With new releases from The Rolling Stones, Sting, Paul Simon, Elton John, and TONS more out in 2016, it’s easy to feel a little exhausted from new music.

There’s no time to rest though. Here are 10 HUGE new releases anticipated to come out this year:


beck

Beck

TITLE: TBA
EXPECTED RELEASE: TBA

Beck told Rolling Stone in July that his music is inspired by the “communal, celebratory” mood he experienced on the festival circuit. “I wanted to take that into the studio, a kind of energy or joy,” he said. “The thing that wakes you up a little bit.”

First single “Wow” hints at the elation and euphoria that Beck seems to be striving for. Will the rest of the album be this bright?


NIN

Nine Inch Nails

TITLE: TBA
EXPECTED RELEASE: TBA

With a five-song EP Not the Actual Events released at the tail end of 2016, Nine Inch Nails is showing no signs of slowing down. Trent Reznor has expressed his interest to release two projects in 2017. We will see if this holds true.


U2.

U2

TITLE: Songs of Experience
EXPECTED RELEASE: TBA

“Early on it became obvious that we were working on two separate albums,” the Edge told Rolling Stone in September 2014. “The majority of the unfinished songs are worthy of becoming part of Songs of Experience and some are already as good or better than anything on Songs of Innocence.”

The follow-up to Songs of Innocence hasn’t come out yet, but we’re hoping after the band’s Joshua Tree tour, they’ll have some time to put the finishing touches on a new body of work.


Bruce

Bruce Springsteen

TITLE: TBA
EXPECTED RELEASE: TBA

Not many details have surfaced on Springsteen’s upcoming album, but he did tell Rolling Stone that “the next opening I have, we’ll slot it in and get it out.” Hopefully that’s sooner than later!


PaulMc

Paul McCartney

TITLE: TBA
EXPECTED RELEASE: TBA

Paul McCartney is back on Capitol! The former Beatle returned to the label that infamously helped propel the Fab Four to superstardom. Now, he’s working with

“I’ll put out my next album, but I won’t think I’m gonna sell a lot,” he told Rolling Stone last year. “I’m putting it out because I have songs that I like. And I will do my best job. The scene has changed, but it doesn’t disturb me, because I had the best of it.”

Tool

Tool

TITLE: TBA
EXPECTED RELEASE: TBA

Yes, it’s been 11 years since Tool put out their last album, 2006’s 10,000 Days. And that is WAY too long.

Bassist Justin Chancellor told Bass Player that the band was “deep into the writing process” and that they’d narrowed down what they were working with to a group of ideas. “Everyone knows we take our time,” he said. “We’re really trying to be responsible with ourselves in trying to discover ideas that haven’t been discovered before. It’s kind of an alchemy, how we experiment.”


ChuckBerry

Chuck Berry

TITLE: Chuck
EXPECTED RELEASE: TBA

Chuck Berry announced his 38th studio album on his 90th birthday last year. “This record is dedicated to my beloved Toddy,” Berry said in a statement in regards to his wife. “My darlin’, I’m growing old! I’ve worked on this record for a long time. Now I can hang up my shoes!”

His son Charles has also said: “These songs cover the spectrum from hard-driving rockers to soulful, thought-provoking time capsules of a life’s work.” We can’t wait.


ShaniaTwain

Shania Twain

TITLE: TBA
EXPECTED RELEASE: TBA

Now 15 years since Twain’s last studio album (2002’s Up!), it sounds like Twain is readying a new studio release.

“I did so many of my backing vocal arrangements – just being able to have all these multi-tracks and moving them around and experimenting that way,” Twain told Entertainment Weekly. “By the time I got into the studio, I was already quite familiar with what I wanted to do.”


DepecheMode

Depeche Mode

TITLE: Spirit
EXPECTED RELEASE: Spring 2017

More than three years has passed since Depeche Mode’s last studio album, the electropop dream Delta Machine.

“We’re working on the album with a new team: It’s produced by James Ford [of Simian Mobile Disco], and he’s helped us to make what we feel is a very incredible sounding record,” singer Dave Gahan told Rolling Stone this past October.


Chic

Chic

TITLE: It’s About Time
EXPECTED RELEASE: TBA

It’s been 25 years since Chic’s Chic-ism was released more than 25 years ago. Nile Rodgers completed the new album It’s About Time right after Prince’s death; he didn’t want to drop it in 2016 with so much bad news. 2017 also marks 40 years of the band. Here’s to hoping the band hasn’t missed a beat!
