Fifteen Albums to Look Forward to in '20

Updated on December 31, 2019

Fans Will Soon Find Out If The Strokes Can Finally Top "Last Nite"


Facing what is certain to be an ugly Presidential election, most of us are looking at 2020 with at least some degree of dread. Added to that is the spectacle of the Impeachment process, which at its completion early in the new year is certain to outrage much of the country.

Making the near future even bleaker is the fact the hated New York Yankees, who did not win even a single pennant during this most recent decade, figure to return to the World Series in 2020. After all, the Bronx Bombers, who ran away with their division last year, filled the only weak spot on its roster by signing highly sought after free agent pitcher Garritt Cole over the winter.

In spite of the dire political and sports downers looming over us, the upcoming year does offer music fans something to look forward to. A number of popular artists are scheduled to release new albums at some point in 2020, and here are fifteen of the most anticipated.

1. Destroyer, Have We Met
Dan Bejar, who has also been associated with the New Pornographers, is already streaming a single called "Crimson Tide" before a March 13 release.

2. Alanis Morrisette, Such Pretty Forks in the Road
May 1 is the lucky day when the pop sensation gives us new material, such as the current hit "Reasons I Drink."

3. Peter, Bjorn and John, Endless Dream
This follow up will have a tough time matching the excellent songs on 2016's Breaking Point, so until March 13 fans must settle for the first single called "Rusty Nail."

4. Broken Bells, Untitled
Dangermaus and James Mercer's third collaboration was originally to come out in 2019, but is just the first single "Good Luck" that has has been available since September.

5. Nine Inch Nails, Untitled
Trent Reznor and his alternative rock band have not released new material for a half decade, so fans are eagerly anticipating their new record.

6.Greenday, Father of All Mothers
Still together and still making quality alt rock, Billie Joe Armstrong and his two band mates plan to strike again on February 7.

7. Tame Impala, The Slow Rush
if your loved one is a fan of Kevin Parker's Australian chillwave band, the new album featuring the single "It Might Be Time" will make a great purchase when it comes out on Valentine's Day.

8. Weezer, Van Weezer
The quartet has released no fewer than five albums in the last four years, and a sixth is arriving on May 15.

9. The Airborne Toxic Event, Hollywood Park

11. Teenage Fan Club, Untitled

12. The Strokes Untitled

13. Bombay Bicycle Club, Everything Else Has Gone Wrong
