Armin van Buuren shares title and landing date for seventh LPTomorrowland Armin Van Buuren 2018

2019 has been a year of tremendous activity from the Armin van Buuren camp. The trance titan recently interrupted the flow of his successive series of singles with the release of the inaugural GAIA album, Moons of Jupiter. Produced alongside fellow GAIA constituent, Benno de Goeij, the 21-song endeavor was a clear stylistic deviation from the commercial, dance-pop side of van Buuren. But the story doesn’t end there.

An extended effort, an album the length of Moons of Jupiter would reasonably give fans cause to believe that van Buuren’s next release couldn’t possibly come so soon after his last GAIA production, but suffice to say, more van Buuren music is indeed on the way.

The trance pioneer announced that he would be following Moons of Jupiter in LP format during his Main Stage set at Electric Zoo’s recently concluded 2019 iteration. And now, he’s solidified the impending album’s arrival day, landing October 25, and entitled, Balance. The endeavor, according to the man himself, will be an explorations of sorts, “into known and unknown territories while finding the balance in between.” Pre-order here.

Anderson .Paak reveals new album release date and artworkAnderson .paak Onard Release Date Artwork

The next Anderson .Paak era is officially on its way, with the R&B superstar announcing his forthcoming LP Oxnard will arrive on November 16. .Paak broke the news on Open Late with Peter Rosenberg, and shortly after dropped the album’s official cover art via Twitter.

Anderson .Paak monstered the music scene with his 2016 album Malibu, which won him boatloads of fans and acclaim on the strength of monster tracks like “Come Down” and “Am I Wrong.” Although the singer has had his hands in side projects and features since, Oxnard’s release will mark his first true solo LP in almost three years. Even without that hype-worth distinction, .Paak’s momentum is already juggernaut status. After striking gold early with lead single “Bubblin,” the star followed it up with the groovy Kendrick Lamar-assisted “Tints.” If that wasn’t enough, Dr. Dre himself has reportedly handled extensive production on the album, which will arrive via Dre’s Aftermath imprint. The album’s artwork is pure .Paak, and if the lead singles are any indication, Oxnard is shaping up to a new high bar for the singer.

It’s been a whirlwind of waiting and rumors for Kanye West fans so far this fall. In an interview with TMZ, Ye dropped some bad news for those eagerly anticipating his Yanhdi project’s arrival, telling fans of plans to head to Africa for more recording sessions with the aim of releasing his LP on November 23. After previously stating the album would be released on September 28, and even booking a coinciding slot on “Saturday Night Live” to promote the drop, the date came and went without new Yeezy.

West plans to head to Africa on a quest to “feel the earth, and just be,” explained the rapper. “Those five albums that I dropped earlier were like superhero rehabilitation. Now the alien ‘Ye is fully back in mode.” Despite his previous project ycontaining just seven tight tracks, many were still surprised when Yeezy began teasing his Yahndi LP. Despite the frustrating delays, it’s clear the G.O.O.D Music boss is planning to make Yahdi something special. Although the music world has learned the hard way Kanye’s release dates are subject to change, his new album would be a thanksgiving highlight if it indeed drops this coming Black Friday.
