Upcoming Albums in September - Part 2
A few weeks ago, I shared half of September's hottest album releases; don't worry, I haven't forgotten about you! As promised, here is the second half.
The band that brought meaningful lyrics and smooth musicianship with the likes of albums Cities and New Surrender is back with Dark is the Way, Light is a Place. When talking about the potential impact of the album, frontman Stephen Christian has said that they're on the brink of something - be it world domination or destruction - but either way, they're on the bring. Check out their single, Impossible, and decide for yourself. Their album is being released today.
John Legend and The Roots
John Legend is collaborating with hip hop group The Roots for the album Wake Up! Wake Up Everybody is the first single from the album; it is being released today.
Maroon 5 is back with album Hands All Over. If their first single, Misery, is any indication, you won't be able to help coming back to this album over and over. Hands All Over is being released today.
Carlos Santana, the guitar legend, is releasing Guitar Heaven: The Greatest Guitar Classics of All Time. If the first single, a cover of The Beatles' While My Guitar Gently Weeps, is any indication of the caliber of this album, we're in for a treat.
