[Billboard] 2016 Music Preview: 58 Albums We Can't Wait to Hear
2016 Albums We Can't Wait to Hear
In 2016, music will be more than mere entertainment. It’ll have to be. Between the squawking and squabbling of presidential candidates and the bad news filtering in from all corners of the planet, the noise of modern life will be damn near deafening. Fortunately, there are dozens of promising albums scheduled to drop in the next 12 months. (One of them might even be Rihanna's long-delayed Anti, unless it drops before the Times Square ball does.) What follows are the records we’re most excited for -- the ones that stand the best chance of keeping us happy and sane in these crazy times. Let the music play.
Christina Aguilera, TBD (TBD)
Expect a mellower Christina Aguilera when the feisty R&B belter returns with her first album since 2012’s Lotuses. “Taking a love for yoga and breathing ... not looking at it as an exercise, but just feeling more one with the Earth and everyone being connected, it’ll definitely have a reflection on the new record,” the singer and The Voice coach told the Associated Press.
