Disclosure: “Caracal”
Release Date:
September 25
It’s going to be tough for Disclosure duo Guy and Howard Lawrence to match the massive success of their hit “Latch” (featuring Sam Smith), but early reviews are already giving “Caracal” high praise.

Chvrches: “Every Open Eye”
Release Date:
September 25
Scottish group Chvrches is serving up more synth-pop with “Every Open Eye,” pushing themselves into new territory—both lyrically and musically. Going through a breakup? Check out “Leave A Trace,” which vocalist Lauren Mayberry has said “is the middle finger mic drop. It’s about the point where you’re like, ‘There’s no point in having this conversation anyway. There will be no resolve.’”

Fetty Wap: “Fetty Wap”
Release Date:
September 25
With three singles killing it on the charts right now, it’s hard to believe VMA “Artist To Watch” winner Fetty Wap hasn’t even released an album yet. The time has finally come and the hip-hop artist’s debut will have 21 tracks, including a “Trap Queen” remix featuring Grandur.

Janet Jackson Unbreakable

Janet Jackson: “Unbreakable”
Release Date:
October 2
Janet Jackson’s new single “No Sleeep” may be unfortunately spelled, but the steamy music video proves the 49-year-old can still bring it. If you loved ‘80s and ‘90s Janet, you’ll adore the new album—she stuck with the same producer. Expect plenty of sexy-time tracks, but also a big dose of honesty. Rumor has it at least one song is about her late brother, Michael.

Selena Gomez Revival

Selena Gomez: “Revival”
Release Date:
October 9
Selena Gomez sent a clear message when she revealed the “Revival” album cover on Instagram last week, a black-and-white photo of herself completely nude: she’s baring it all on this album. Gone are the shallow pop songs from her Disney years. Gomez isn’t afraid to expose her heartbreak. Get ready to dissect all the lyrics for hints of her on-again, off-again relationship with Justin Bieber.

Release Date:
October 16
Demi’s had her dark days of dealing with depression, eating disorders and substance abuse, but she’s leaving that all behind and marking a new, triumphant chapter with her fifth album, “Confident.” If “Cool For The Summer” is any indication, fans can expect more feel-good, radio-ready pop.

Carrie Underwood: “Storyteller”
Release Date:
October 23
Now that she’s happily married with an adorable baby boy, Carrie Underwood is singing a different tune, so to speak, than her early hits. But just because her “Before He Cheats” days are behind her doesn’t mean she’s gone soft. The country powerhouse is back with more relatable songs, including her new single “Smoke Break,” which is about stretching yourself too thin.

The Neighbourhood:
“Wiped Out!”
Release Date:
October 30
The Neighbourhood is releasing a new album during the height of “sweater weather.” Ironic much? So far, the band has only released one single from the new album, “R.I.P. 2 My Youth,” with lyrics that are totally emo, but sonically, it’s an upbeat blend of rock and hip-hop.

Charlie Puth Nine Track Mind

Release Date:
November 6
