We’re more than half way through the year, but that doesn’t mean we can start writing up our ‘Best of 2012′ lists just yet – there’s still five whole months of music to be released! Isn’t that overwhelming? Let us help you narrow down your anticipation. Here is our list of the top five albums we’re looking forward to this fall.
Cat Power – Sun (Sept. 4)
The Queen of blues-rock, Chan Marshall, a.k.a. Cat Power is finally back with her first full-length album of originals since 2006′s The Greatest. In those six years, Marshall rounded up a backing band called The Dirty Delta Blues, which was made up of blues musicians and together they recorded an album of covers in 2008 called Jukebox. Lead single, Ruin was release last month and fans and critiques alike drooled over it for weeks. And that was only one song! Imagine how crazy people will go over the entire album!
Two Door Cinema Club – Beacon (Sept. 4)
British indie-rock band, Two Door Cinema Club dominated playlists two summers ago with their hits Something Good Can Work and What You Know, off of their album, Tourist History. After two years of touring with everyone from Tokyo Police Club to Phoenix, the three-piece has finally found some time to settle into a studio and record a new album. Beacon will be out Sept. 4 and you can watch an album trailer below.
The xx – Coexist (Sept. 11)
Indie electro-pop band The xx began writing their follow-up to 2009′s self-titled album right after their last tour in 2010. After hibernating for almost two years, the band is back and ready to present us with their latest batch of songs on an album called Coexist. The band has also returned to the road so make sure to catch them live this fall so you can listen to these new songs live!
No Doubt – Push & Shove (Sept. 25)
After years of praying and speculation, 90s pop-rock band, No Doubt, are back with a new album called Push & Shove (out Sept. 25). Gwen Stefani, Tony Kanal, Tom Dumont and Adrian Young have reunited and will be premiering their first single, Settle Down next week. Till then, watch the teaser video for track!
Dragonette – Bodyparts (Sept. 25)
