One of the best parts of summer is lying out in the sun and listening to your favorite new albums.
Throughout this summer, many artists will be dropping their album releases. While some have not yet revealed their release dates, others have planned for months dates that their albums are set to drop.
Jonas Brothers: “Happiness Begins” on June 7
After releasing their hit singles, “Sucker” and “Cool,” the “Jo-Bros” will be dropping their first album together since 2009.
“After seven years of not working together, living life and finding ourselves in our own paths, we came back to give you our journey in album form,” Kevin Jonas said in an Instagram post.
They recently announced dates for a 40-city tour with featured artists Bebe Rexha and Jordan McGraw.
The 1975: “Notes on a
Conditional Form” estimated in June
This band’s new album is being released only a year after their last album, “A Brief Inquiry into Online Relationships.”
The band planned to release the new album in May, but its been pushed back to June, according to the band’s manager, Jamie Oborne. The band is hoping to release their album June 1.
Matty Healy, the band’s lead singer, came up with the band’s name after finding a book at a yard sale. Scribbled in the book were the words, “1st June, The 1975.”
Bastille: “Doom Days” on June 14
Bastille explores the concept of an “apocalyptic house party” in their upcoming album.
Even though this album sounds dismal, their single, “Joy,” is uplifting. The band’s last album, “Wild World,” was released three years ago in 2016.
Part four of their ongoing mixtape series, “Other People’s Heartache,” was released in 2018. The mixtapes feature artists such as Seeb, James Arthur and Kianja.
Sum 41: “Order in Decline” on July 19
After three years, Sum 41 released a new single, “Out for Blood” April 24.
Their new record, “Order in Decline,” is said to be very personal and will cover certain topics like family and death, as well as politics. The band will be touring in the summer as one of the headliners in the Rockstar Energy Disrupt Festival with bands such as The Story So Far and Sleeping With Sirens.
While there is not much information about this iconic pop-punk trio’s new album, title or release date, drummer Travis Barker claims the album will be out before the Anniversary Warped Tour, which begins June 8.
The band has also revealed that they are collaborating with The Chainsmokers and Pharrell Williams on the upcoming album. They have compared their new album to the band’s first LP in 2003, which is untitled.
Avicii: “Tim” on June 6
This posthumous album will be released a little more than a year after Avicii’s death in April last year.
He began working on the album before his death, and his production and writing team finished it after he passed at age 28. The title of the album “Tim” reflects Avicii’s real name, Tim Bergling.
After his death, Berling’s family set up a foundation in his name to provide mental health support and prevent suicide.
Angels and Airwaves
After spending time searching for proof of UFOs, Tom Delonge is finally ready to get back to creating music and touring with his band, Angels and Airwaves.
Delonge has not toured with the band in seven years. They recently released the lead track, “Rebel Girl,” from their new album. They plan to go on a 23-date tour in the U.S., beginning in September.
Chance the Rapper
The rapper’s “first debut album” is expected to drop this July if all goes according to plan.
Though he has not released a title for the album, he has hinted that this album will not be like his previous mixtape creations, "Coloring Book” and “Acid Rap.”
On Twitter, Chance said, “My first album is for my fans.”
