2017 seems like a very successful year for the music industry. Many artists are preparing to release their albums that they have worked very hard on to satisfy their fans. Many artists, including Lana Del Rey, Kanye West, and Lorde, are adding the final touches on their works of art. With so many artists releasing content at one time, many people will be pleased because such a wide range of music is going to be distributed and available to many different people.
Lana Del Rey just recently released the title for her upcoming album, Lust for Life. She explained that her past few albums have been for her, and that they have been to her cope with life and the many curveballs it has thrown at her. Lana Del Rey further explained that this album is for her fans, and contains beats and melodies that her fans have wanted from her for a long time. Her most recent album, released in 2015, was Honeymoon, and sparked controversy among many of her fans because of its slow, melancholic songs. You can expect this album to drop later in the spring or summer.
Lorde has also been working very hard on her album, Melodrama, which will be released on June 16, 2017. Lorde has released two singles off of her album to give her fans a taste of what’s to come. The current singles are “Greenlight”, and “Liability”. Most fans love these songs, as it provides a different type of music that was found in her first album, Pure Heroine. This let some people down, however, because some were expecting the same type of music in Pure Heroine.
Kanye West is also expected to release a new album, Turbo Grafx 16. The title was announced on February 27th, 2016. Since then, fans have tried to guess at songs that might make an appearance on his eighth studio album. Kanye West promised fans that he has been working on over a whopping 40 songs. A release date is yet to be determined as Kanye West adds his final touches to his music.
These are just a few albums that are going to be released as of 2017. There are many more albums to expect, including those from Kelly Clarkson and Christina Aguilera. 2017 is truly the year for music.
