The 1975 – Notes on a Conditional Form
The 1975 are still touring for their album that was released in 2018, but a new album is in sight for 2019. The 1975 are an exciting band, as they are always developing their music while they progress through albums. There is always a sense of anticipation when it comes to their new releases, to see what new music techniques and social issues they will tackle next.
Backstreet Boys – DNA
For 2019, we’re taking it back to one of the biggest boy bands from the 90s. Their new album DNA is promising to stay true to their roots while also incorporating some new influences, that reflect each of the five members. The album is accompanied by a highly publicised world tour. Any fans of the 90s boyband or anyone just looking for a nostalgic listen in 2019 will be very happy with this release.
Ariana Grande – Thank U, Next
Ariana ended the year on a high with the release of the title track to her upcoming album. Along with this came a viral meme. With the media frenzy around her love life, Ariana encompasses all the drama into this song and the accompanying video, full to the brim with pop culture references that have excited the internet. With this introduction to her highly anticipated fifth album, it is sure to be one to watch out for in 2019.
Lana Del Rey – Norman Fucking Rockwell
With talks of Del Rey dabbling in other genres on social media, this new album is highly anticipated. Stating that she was inspired by Sylvia Plath when writing the album, we know that we can still expect the poetic and sombre lyrics we know and love from Del Rey to be present. She released ‘hope is a dangerous thing for a woman like me- but I have it’, a beautiful single from the album which offers the classic Del Rey sound.
Nina Nesbitt – The Sun Will Come Up, the Seasons Will Change
Possibly one of the most underrated artists in this list, Nesbitt’s album is definitely one to keep an eye out for. This will be Nesbitt’s 2nd album and seems to be taking a different approach than her previous effort. She released the single ‘Loyal to Me’ from the album last year, along with five other tracks. The song shows how Nesbitt has progressed since her first album in 2014 and the direction she is going with this album, with a more pop sound which suits her vocals perfectly.
