With 2016 upon us, it's time to finally start thinking about the new year in music. There's bound to be a lot of great albums coming in the New Year, so lets take a look at some of the ones I'm most excited for!
Allie X - CollXtion II
Just a little over a year after CollXtion I was released, Allie has plans to release another EP. Except, she doesn't really call them EPs, she calls them CollXtions, duh. She recently revealed the theme for the upcoming record is "longing and being lost". Some titles confirmed by her are 'Alexandra' and 'Weak Jaw'. In November, she dropped a new single 'Never Enough', taken off the re-release of the Catch single to hold fans over until she drops her next compilation. There's no official date, but she promised it will be coming out in 2016, so patiently we'll wait.
Lady Gaga - LG5
The hype started right after ARTPOP was released and hasn't stopped since! Gaga began working on the album in spring, and so far no release date or even title has been announced. However, it has been confirmed she worked with writer and producer Nile Rodgers, RedOne and Mark Ronson, who she had a 12 hour recording session with; and the album will most likely include other long-time collaborators like DJ White Shadow and Zedd. This is for sure one of the albums I'm most excited to hear in 2016. I'm just worried because she's staying really quiet this time around. Surprise release or an ANTi situation?
Tove Lo - TBA
After Habits found its way on to the charts last year and she released her debut album, Tove Lo fans were waiting for any word on a new release. But vocal chord surgery left her scared she wouldn't be able to sing again. Thankfully after healing, she got back into the studio and surprised fans with a Christmas present - a demo from her upcoming album, titled titled 'Influence', getting everyone hyped for her next release. Tove said the album is "still going to be personal and emotional", and that she is experimenting with deep house beats. It's been over a year since she dropped her debut album, so fans are for sure ready!
Sia - This Is Acting
I'm personally a very casual Sia fan, but the singles she has put out for this album so far have been phenomenal. The concept of the whole record being rejected songs she wrote for other artists is really cool to me, and I can't wait to hear the whole album. I have a feeling it's gonna put me into full stan mode.
Kesha - TBA
Well, sadly there's actually no word on an an album release this year since the battle with her ex-producer is still going, but I could totally see her pulling a Miley Cyrus & Her Dead Petz.
