ZZ TopLa Futura – Due out September 11th

The rock legends are getting set to release their 15th album (and their first in nearly a decade). There is a strong buzz surrounding it already, people who have heard it are calling it nothing short of amazing. La Futura was co-produced by Rick Rubin and ZZ Top’s Billy Gibbons, who said, “we wanted to recall the directness of our early stuff but not turn our backs on contemporary technology. The result of this melding of the past and the present is, of course, ‘La Futura’.”

Bob DylanTempest – Due out on September 11th

Dylan will release his 35th, and he swears not his last, album next month. The title track is reportedly a 14-minute epic about the sinking of the Titanic that includes mention of Leonardo Dicaprio (really?). The album ends with an ode to John Lennon called “Roll On John”.

The KillersBattle Born – Due out on September 18th

This will be the 4th full-length album from the Killers. I loved their first two (Hot Fuss and Sam’s Town) but was very disappointed with their last release. It’s been four years now and I have a feeling the Vegas rockers have used that time to return to form. The first single off the new album, “Runaways” is getting a lot of positive reviews.

Mumford and SonsBabel – Due out on September 24th

How will the British folk quartet follow up their smash breakout debut, Sigh No More, which sold more than 2 million copies in the U.S. alone? I love these guys and can’t wait to find out!

Van MorrisonBorn To Sing: No Plan B – Due out on October 2nd

Plan A worked out pretty well as we’re now getting ready for Mr. Morrison’s 34th studio album! This one was produced by Morrison himself and recorded in his hometown of Belfast, Northern Ireland.

Band of HorsesMirage Rock – Due out on October 17th

The band’s 4th album is definitely a highly-anticipated one. They teamed up with legendary British producer Glyn Johns, who has worked with Dylan, The Stones and The Clash (just to name a few).
