After last week’s post about my favorite albums of 2014, I had to follow that up with my most anticipated albums of 2015 (that I know about right now). New music and new bands frequently seem to come out of nowhere – and that’s exciting. But, here are my top five most anticipated albums of 2015:
Modest Mouse – Strangers to Ourselves
It’s been eight years since their last studio album! That really should be reason enough. But the first single from the upcoming album, Lampshades on Fire, also provides good reason to look forward to this album.
Mark Ronson – Uptown Special
Bringing back the funk – enough said! But just listen to the fun upbeat track, Uptown Funk, with Bruno Mars and you’ll understand a little better why I’m looking forward to seeing what Ronson has to offer in 2015.
Fall Out Boy – American Beauty/American Psycho
I loved Save Rock and Roll much more than I thought I would, so I’m looking forward to seeing what they come up with next.
Smallpools – Lovetap!
I’ve loved all I’ve heard from them so far, including the latest single, Karaoke. It will be great to check out a full length album.
Brandon Flowers – TBA
Rumor has it Brandon Flowers (of The Killers) has a new solo album coming out in 2015. I loved his first solo outing (Flamingo, 2010), so I’ll be looking forward to seeing what he brings next.
What are new albums are you looking forward to in 2015? I’d love to know!
