The Most Anticipated Albums of 2018

Kanye West

For the first time since 2014, ‘Ye didn’t drop a song on New Year’s Eve. However, rumors of collaborations with Kid Cudi, elusive retreats to Wyoming and the current status of the long-awaited “Cruel Winter” lead us to believe the rapper is working on something, and that’s probably as much of a confirmation we can expect from the always unpredictable Kanye.


Vampire Weekend

The New York trio (formerly quartet, before the departure of Rostam Batmanglij in 2016) has yet to follow up their incredible 2013 record, “Modern Vampires of the City,” but frontman Ezra Koening has recently been updating fans on the band’s forthcoming album. With the working title “Mitsubishi Macchiato,” Koenig told Entertainment Weekly that the new record will be produced by Ariel Rechtshaid and is inspired by Kacey Musgraves.


Ariana Grande

The pop princess has shared snippets of new music with fans via social media, and is reportedly working with Pharrell Williams on her follow-up to 2016’s “Dangerous Woman.” The pop star has yet to release a no. 1 single in her career, but maybe that will change with her fourth record.


Car Seat Headrest

Though it was the indie rock band’s tenth album, 2016’s “Teens of Denial” brought Car Seat Headrest more critical attention than ever before. They recently announced their new album, “Twin Fantasy,” a re-recording of frontman Will Toledo’s 2011 album of the same name, due out February 16.


Earl Sweatshirt

Since the release of “I Don’t Like Shit, I Don’t Go Outside,” fans of the Chicago rapper have been eagerly waiting for new music. Earl recently tweeted that he had been working on something to be released in 2018, and that’s encouraging enough after a three-year absence.


Sky Ferreira

Whether or not the alt-pop singer’s sophomore album will still be called, “Masochism,” the title she announced back in 2015, who knows. But after a venture into acting, making appearances in “Baby Driver” and “Twin Peaks: The Return,” it seems Ferreira is working on music again, posting “NEW STUFF & MUSIC WITHIN 60” in a recent Instagram caption. It’s hardly a confirmation and “60” could mean anything, but any reason to believe a follow-up to her fantastic 2013 record “Night Time, My Time” is coming is worth reaching for.



Releasing two excellent singles in 2017, “Ponyboy” and “It’s Okay to Cry,” it seems the PC Music producer’s upcoming record “Whole New World” will be a further expansion on her experimental pop sound.



The indie singer released her fourth album “Puberty 2” in 2016 to critical acclaim, and has confirmed that the new music she’s working on is “different.” She’s also set to hit the road with Lorde later this year, so perhaps we can expect her next project once that tour wraps up.


The 1975

The British band have already slated their upcoming record “Music for Cars” for release on June 1, following their previous release “I Like it When You Sleep…,” a 2016 highlight. They also recently surprise released a live album “DH00278” last month and have teased potential tracks for the new record on social media.


Cardi B

After her immensely successful 2017, it’s hard to believe the “Love & Hip-Hop” alum has yet to put out an album. Though she has three mixtapes under her belt, they all came out before she hit it big with “Bodak Yellow,” and only time will tell how Cardi’s next record will capitalize on that smash.
