These '90s R&B superstars have sold more than 20 million records worldwide and they're back with their first album since 2004. 'Electric Cafe' drops on March 30 and it features a Snoop Dogg collab. (And that's not the last you'll hear of Snoop on this list!)
Stone Temple Pilots
Yes, this is new STP and this self-titled album, due out March 16, is the alt-rockers' first with new lead singer Jeff Gutt. It's the band's first record since 2010 and their first since the 2015 death of Scott Weiland, their former lead singer.
All the Time Entertainment
Snoop Dogg is offering you his bible of love, or, more accurately, his 'Bible Of Love,' because this is the name of his new album, which you might assume is jam-packed with sexy, sweaty, oh-yeah-smooth love jams but is actually (!) a gospel album. Fo' real. It's out March 16 and we are intrigued.
People are saying this veteran new wave Talking Heads frontman is about to experience one of those things that happened to David Bowie: a big career resurgence. So watch out for that. And also for this, 'American Utopia,' which is a great campaign slogan if no one's nabbed it for the US 2020 race yet. It's catchy. It's also his first solo album in 14 years and it's out March 9.
ARE YOU READY FOR 'FIREPOWER?' Because this is pretty major: 'Firepower' is the 18th album by the British heavy metal gods and this is the first time they've worked with producer Tom Allom since 'Ram It Down' in 1988. ALERT: 'FIREPOWER' DROPS MARCH 9. (Tell your friends.)
This is her fourth LP and by now people have kind of forgot that this country star got her start on the singing competition 'Nashville Star' in 2007 (she came in seventh). Musgraves cites the Bee Gees, Sade, and Neil Young as influences on 'Golden Hour,' which drops March 30.
The Portland indie rockers will play Toronto on May 30 to promote their eighth album, 'I’ll Be Your Girl,' out March 16. They looked to Roxy Music and New Order for inspiration on this one, which lead singer Colin Meloy described to 'Consequence of Sound' as sounding like "exuberant nihilism." Sounds soo March 2018.
Yo La Tengo
Yo La Tengo
Ahh, remember that minute in the '90s when everything was Liz Phair and Yo La Tengo and Jon Spencer? Well, we can revisit it. Actually, no we never can but here is a new album from Yo La Tengo anyway. It's called 'There’s a Riot Going On' and if you're, like, "Oh, just like the 1971 Sly & the Family Stone record?" then congratulations music nerd! You win for nerdiest because yes, they are referencing that. This record is their first since 2013 and it's out on March 16 and then they play Toronto on March 31.
You know this English singer-songwriter from his 2014 international smash hit "Budapest" from his debut album, 'Wanted on Voyage.' He cites Bob Dylan and Woody Guthrie as his main musical influences so if that's your bag, you'll want to hear his new one, 'Staying at Tamara's,' out March 23.
The palest man in rock is back with 'Boarding House Reach' and this, his third album, features some of the Jack White-iest track names ever, including "Hypermisophoniac," "Humoresque," and "Ezmerelda Steals the Show." 'Boarding House Reach' drops March 23.
This is the Louisiana country singer-songwriter's debut album. Look at that wondrous beard-and-coat combo. No wonder people are interested in the music contained beneath this, the most becoming cover of 'Home State,' which drops March 23. Villamere
Three Days Grace
Right on schedule! The multi-platinum-selling alt-rockers from Norwood, Ontario (near Peterborough), have released an album every three years since their self-titled debut in 2003. The band already boasts over a billion streams on Spotify and they're bound to earn even more with 'Outsider,' which drops March 9.
Nathaniel Rateliff & The Night Sweats
You remember "S.O.B.," their breakout hit from 2015: "Give me a drink!/ One more night!/ This can't be me!/ Son of a b--ch!/ If I can't get clean!/ I'm gonna drink my life away!" Now these Americana blues rockers are back with their fourth album, 'Tearing at the Seams,' out March 9.
Out March 9, this self-titled album is the California pop-rockers fourth and a followup to their 2015 album, 'Wiped Out!' We know you're, like, "They just released 'To Imagine' on January 18!" And we're, like, "Yeah, but that was an EP not an album, which is also different from a mixed tape, so just try to keep up, okay?"
He was only 18 when he won the tenth season of 'American Idol'. Since then he's seen the highs — his debut album was certified platinum — and the lows — in 2016, he was dropped by his record label. Now he's on a major high again: last summer, he became the first country artist in history to chart a song without a record label when he released "Five More Minutes." His full new album, 'Seasons Change,' is out March 16.
