Storyteller – Carrie Underwood
Release Date – October 23, 2015
Release only a few days ago, Storyteller, the fifth studio album from country singer Carrie Underwood features 13 tracks showcasing the powerful singer’s strong vocal presence as shown in her previous albums including the tracks “Heartbeat” featuring fellow country artist Sam Hunt and “Smoke Break.” “Heartbeat” is set to top the charts as the soft ballad provides a romantic touch with the lyrics, “And tonight I wanna drive so far we’ll only find static on the radio/ And we can’t see those city lights, and I love the way you look in a firefly glow./” Currently “Smoke Break” is in the top ten tracks on Billboard for country airplay. Through each song, Underwood is able to tell a story which helps to draw in the listener such as is the case with her latest chart-topping success, “She said, ‘I don’t drink/ But sometimes I need a stiff drink/ Sipping from a highball glass/ Let the world fade away./”
Delirium – Ellie Goulding
Expected Release Date: November 6, 2015
The upcoming third studio album from English singer/songwriter and pop singer Ellie Goulding features 22 tracks including the pop anthem “Something in the Way You Move” and the catchy upbeat track “On My Mind.” Goulding has already seen early success with the music from the record as “On My Mind” has peaked on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. It’s no wonder that Goulding will again see success with Delirium with catchy lyrics such as, “It’s a little dirty how the whole thing started/ I don’t even really know what you intended/ Thought you were cute and you could make me jealous/ Poured it down, so I poured it down./”
Nine Track Mind – Charlie Puth
Expected Release Date – January 29, 2016
The much-anticipated debut release from pop artist and pianist Charlie Puth features 12 tracks showcasing the phenomenal singer’s versatile musical style which is in comparison to the likes of fellow singer Sam Smith. Featuring the piano ballad “One Call Away,” the Meghan Trainor soul-inspired duet “Marvin Gaye,” and the highly addictive R&B groove “Some Type of Love,” Nine Track Mind is likely to earn the praises from respected music industry insiders and critics. First gaining fame on YouTube, talk show host and comedian Ellen DeGeneres would sign Puth to her label eleveneleven. From there, Puth would go on to sign a record deal with Atlantic Records. Following the recent success of his duet with rapper Wiz Khalifa on “See You Again,” Puth would go on to record and release his first solo debut on Atlantic Records.
