May brings music fans new releases from today's favorites and even provides some nostalgia. As the weather heats up, fans can expect a new album from 98 Degrees.
It's the boy band's first studio album since 2000, as the boy-band revival continues. They had already been touring with New Kids on the Block and Boys II Men. If their first single 'Microphone' is any indication, the band has definitely grown up in their more than decade-long hiatus. Current pop favorite, 20-year-old Demi Lovato
is getting set to release her fourth studio album 'Demi.' The album includes the number one single 'Heart Attack' and a duet with Cher Lloyd. Lovato's first three albums all reached the top five of the Billboard 200
It's not quite summer, but there's plenty of time for easy listening. Country stars Lady Antebellum
will release their fourth studio album on May 7th. Their last album 'Own the Night' topped the Billboard
charts in 2011. This album may feature a little different sound for the band, as their new single 'Downtown' includes a faster tempo and fun, flirtatious lyrics. Additionally, The Goo Goo Dolls
will release their tenth studio album on the same day. 'Magnetic' is the band's first record since 2010 and contains the lead single and opening track 'Rebel Beat.'
Indie fans will get to hear the heavily-anticipated third album from Vampire Weekend
on May 14th. 'Modern Vampires of the City' is supposed to include a darker, yet warmer sound than their previous two albums. New York City and America in general has been mentioned as an influence on the album. The band released a double single 'Diane Young/Step' which features impressive sound effects and a typical, up-beat sound. Also, keep an eye out for the second record from Fitz and The Tantrums.
'More Than Just a Dream' is their first album in three years and is the opening line in the album's title song and lead single 'Out of My League.' The album was produced by Tony Hoffer who has worked with M83, Depeche Mode, and Phoenix, among others.
