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.
