The Canadian music icons will release 'Many A Mile', their 16th studio album and first in over five years, on December 3. The lead single is "When You Were Wild". In their 35 years as a group, Blue Rodeo have sold over four million albums, played over 2,000 shows, and been named to the Order of Canada. They look forward to touring again soon.
Neil Young and Crazy Horse
Neil Young has been cranking out the reissues this year, but come in close to us here and we’ll whisper a little secret just to you about this record: IT’S NEW! Yes! Ten new songs with the same ol’ rock 'n' roll spirit are featured on ‘Barn’, out December 10. A film of the same name captures the band in their element: recording under a full moon on a summer night.
Starting December 10, you can celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Band's fourth album, 'Cahoots', with a remixed, remastered and expanded 50th-anniversary edition. Is there a super-deluxe two-CD pack? Yep. A Blu-ray? Yes. Vinyl? But, of course. Is there a 180-gram half-speed-mastered limited-edition 180-gram black vinyl package? It wouldn't be Christmas without it! And the whole project was overseen by the Band's primary songwriter, Canadian treasure Robbie Robertson, so you know it's solid.
‘The BBC Sessions’ is an album of live songs recorded between 1994 and 2001. There are tracks from the power trio’s breakout third album ‘Dookie’, plus ‘Insomniac’, Nimrod’, and ‘Warning’. Green Day recorded most songs at London’s Maida Vale Studios. This is the first time these recordings have been released. The newly mastered 16-track collection is out on December 10.
The electronica pioneer will release a four-track EP on December 1.
The three-time Grammy winner's first solo release in seven years is called 'Starbeam'. Word on the street is that the album is an all-enveloping musical journey that sends the listener hurtling through the stratosphere. So. Use it wisely.
His new tape, ‘Scenic Drive’, will be released on December 3. It includes the single “Present”. “I’ve had the chance to listen to a lot of music and also push myself creatively while I’m recording,” says the six-time Grammy nominee. “My mom raised me on R&B, and whether it’s the harmonies or melodies, it will always be a part of my music. ‘Present’ is just the beginning, and I love that it has a dual meaning. It feels good to be more “present” after such a trying year in the pandemic, and it’s also a “present” for my fans that have been with me every step of the way.” Khalid, who has collab'd with Normani, Halsey & Benny Blanco, Billie Eilish, Shawn Mendes, and Marshmello, describes ‘Scenic Drive’ as a companion piece to his critically acclaimed 2018 EP 'Suncity'.

"We Are Not Alone" is the first single from their original soundtrack for the upcoming documentary, "La Panthére Des Neiges". The accompanying video for the single (which is a bit different than the version that will appear on the album) features footage from the Marie Amiguet and Vincent Munier-directed film, which will be released on December 22. The soundtrack is out on December 17. "There is something about the heart of this film that draws you in. I realized after a day that I wanted to do whatever it took to compose an entire original score," Ellis said in a statement. "The film deserved to have its own musical voice. I booked five days and asked Nick if he could come in for a day to write a theme song and play some piano. He saw the film and stayed for four days."
Paul Weller with Jules Buckley & the BBC Symphony Orchestra
Acclaimed conductor Jules Buckley has linked up with the Jam's legendary frontman for 'An Orchestrated Songbook'. Out December 3, the collection covers music from across Weller's career, including his work with the Style Council and his successful solo career. Thanks to the BBC Symphony Orchestra, you'll get the Jam's 'English Rose' accompanied by sweeping strings. In addition, look for collabs from Celeste, Boy George, and more.
After announcing her sixth studio album, 'Churches', the pop-rock singer-songwriter has released her new single, "Goodbye". The album also includes the singles "The One That You Love," "How Low Can You Go", and "One Last Time". "This album feels like a friend, a friend who took me through one of the most trying times in human history and a fairly trying time in my own personal history," LP says about the album, out December 3. "(There are) so many real stories and realizations that I feel like I was able to share here."
In December 2019, Juice WRLD died at age 21 after suffering a seizure. ‘Fighting Demons’ is the emo rapper’s second posthumous album. It follows last summer’s ‘Legends Never Die’. Since then, Benny Blanco and the Weeknd have shared collabs with the rapper. “There was nothing Jarad ‘Juice WRLD’ Higgins enjoyed more than delivering new music to his millions of fans around the world,” Grade A Productions and Juice WRLD’s mom Carmela Wallace wrote in a statement. “He left behind an astonishingly deep catalogue of music that will ensure his fans will have new songs to listen to for years to come.” ‘Fighting Demons’ drops on December 10.
Well, this is unexpected! The showbiz veteran is releasing her first record in five years and it’s an opera-meets-American standards album. It’s called ‘Unexpected’ and it’s out on December 10. The album announcement comes nearly a year after she announced she would leave “The Talk” after a year as co-host. The album’s lead single is ’Unexpected Song (from the musical 'Song and Dance')’, an Andrew Lloyd Webber & Don Black jam.
"It's something I look forward to," Rick Ross recently told 'Rolling Stone', but he's not talking about the December 10 release of 'Richer Than I Ever Been', (although the sentiment probably applies there, as well). Instead, he's talking about riding his customized John Deere tractor on his estate north of Atlanta. "I have my windows tinted. No one knows it's Ricky Rozay, the biggest boss. AC's down to 68 degrees, and I'm cutting. I'm looking for anything on the lawn that's standing out or looking obnoxious." The lead single from his eleventh record is "Outlawz," featuring 21 Savage and Jazmine Sullivan.
