A fresh new year for music can only usually mean one thing. We are going to get more albums! Whether they are expected because the artist themselves confirmed or hinted at the prospect or it is just pure speculation, I am going to explain some of my most anticipated album’s set to come out this year or any albums that I think would happen based on rumours and timing.Niall Horan
Niall has certainly not been hiding away from the upcoming material he has been working on since his first debut track ‘This Town’ dropped last year. Off the back of its success its almost definite that Niall is set to release his first debut album to line up nicely alongside the five albums he has been apart of with One Direction. No title or please date set at the moment, in many recent interviews Niall himself has stated that the prospects of his album becoming available will be here during the summertime it seems. Very, very, very estate to see what Niall can bring to the table as an individual and even compare the difference in sounds and style to One Directions previous projects or even if any albums may be released by the other 3 poplin question Harry, Louis and Liam. Now that would get interesting.30 Seconds to Mars
Another official confirmed album set to drop dramatically this year and a band that i am desperate to see live is 30 Seconds to Mars. The band and their team has done most of the teasing on their social media platforms through tweets or short videos that has been going on for quite some time now if I remember correctly so my predictions will be that this awaited fifth studio album could be online and in stores during the springtime which i will be listening to and purchasing straight away.Black Veil Brides
Another fifth album that has been set in the works for a little while and confirmed by band members band Black Veil Brides are what it seems all set up to drop their album BVB5 some time soon hopefully. After my liking to their previous album which tracks like ‘Faithless’ and ‘Last Rites’ absolutely grabbing my musical attention I am looking forward to seeing if BVB can I’ve up to my high expectations and judging through their December release of track ‘The Outside’ which I placed in my winter playlist if the album is anything like this song all fans of the five piece band are in for a true treat.Paramore
The band that has probably been in and out of the recording studio for the majority of last year, Paramore are set for an almighty album this year. I wouldn’t label myself as a hardcore or the most knowledgable fan of Paramore although I for sure enjoy much of their material and I am very delighted when pictures surfaced especially of Hayley Williams experimenting and collating ideas together which was the beginning point when speculations sparked of an album being put together. I for one cannot wait.Charli XCX
I am such a band orientated person however the one solo female artist I always have time for and liked for the offset was Charli XCX. I did thoroughly enjoy her last release ‘Sucker’ which included some pretty decent tunes on it and with Charli not releasing an entire album since this 2014 release I think its time I heard some fresh, new music from the person herself and I am pretty sure that other fans of hers have been patiently awaiting an album for a period of time now. Plus with new albums usually comes a tour basically translating that I want to see Charli XCX live please.All Time Low
Online many people have been predicting another album from All Time Low considering their consistency as a band and their music always tending to come out in a sequence and that sequence is calling for an album or at least some new songs. With their mediocre last release containing just a handful of strong songs in my opinion such as ‘Old Scars/Future Hearts’ ‘Kids in the Dark’ and ‘Dancing With a Wolf’ I believe that All Time Low can bring their game back with another album.
Any albums you guys are desperate to hear or want to be released? Tell me in the comments and we can have a full blown speculation conversations on music that could or will be making their emergence this year. There is definitely a few more albums I am expecting to come out however these are my top and most favourite picks for the time being.
