New Releases: Week of April 5

New Releases Releasing music is a tricky business these days. A task even more demanding is keeping track of the abundance of albums, compilations, singles, and EPs that drop each month, not to mention digital-versus-physical release times, overseas dates, and the occasional artist name change.

Because we know you’re busy, each Monday we throw the coffee on and pack the new week’s most anticipated releases into one easily digestible list. Note that all items are listed under their US street dates and subject to change anytime.
