Nov. 2

Featured Album: “FM!,” Vince Staples

This is the third studio album for Vince Staples, and follows the release of his 2017 LP, “Big Fish Theory.” The tracklist for “FM!” contains 11 tracks, and though many of the features are uncredited, artists such as E-40, Earl Sweatshirt and Tyga are expected to make guest vocal appearances on the album. Additionally, many of the songs on the album were produced by Kenny Beats.

Other notable releases:

  • “White Bronco,” Action Bronson
  • “Walls,” Barbara Streisand

  • “Post-Apocalypto,” Tenacious D

Nov. 9

Featured Album: “Experiment,” Kane Brown

One of our personal favorites, Kane Brown has turned the country music industry upside down in 2018 by introducing more hip-hop beats and new styles into the genre. “Experiment” is Brown’s second full studio album, and must follow Brown’s platinum debut self-titled album. There are 13 songs included on the new album, and it once again uses both traditional and more progressive sounds. Brown co-wrote the majority of the songs on the album, and worked with producer Dann Huff.

Other notable releases:

  • “Simulation Theory,” Muse
  • “String Theory,” Hanson
  • “Eden,” CupcakKe
  • “Come Over When You’re Sober, Pt. 2,” Lil Peep (Posthumous release)
  • “The Capitol Studio Sessions,” Jeff Goldblum
  • “Down The Road Wherever,” Mark Knopfler
  • “Elastic Days,” J Mascis

Nov. 16

Featured Album: “Delta,” Mumford & Sons

“Delta” is the fourth studio album from the British folk rock band, and the group’s first since “Wilder Mind” was released in May of 2015. The band worked with producer Paul Epworth, and recorded more than 25 songs at The Church Studios in London, though the album’s final tracklist includes 14 songs. The band is expected to get back to its classic sound of banjo and acoustic instruments on “Delta,” after the band went somewhat away from that with its previous release.

Other notable releases:

  • “Room to Spare, The Acoustic Sessions EP,” Kip Moore
  • “Oxnard,” Anderson . Paak
  • “Other People’s Stuff,” John Mellencamp
  • “Acrylic,” Leikeli47
  • “Caution,” Mariah Carey
  • “Love,” Michael Buble
  • “LM5,” Little Mix
  • Shiny and Oh So Bright, Vol. 1 / LP: No Past. No Future. No Sun.,” Smashing Pumpkins

Nov. 23

Featured Album: “Yandhi,” Kanye West

So far this year, Kanye West has already released the seven-song EP “Ye,” as well as his collaborative album with Kid Cudi, which is named after the duo’s collective name, “Kids See Ghosts.” So, the announcement of “Yandhi” was quite a surprise. It was originally slated to drop in late September, but was pushed back to Nov. 23. The minimal album artwork is very similar to 2013’s “Yeezus” album cover. The exact tracklist has not yet been revealed, but Ty Dolla $ign, Lil Pump, Nicki Minaj, Migos and more are all expected to be featured.

Other notable releases

  • “Phoenix,” Rita Ora
