Summer tends to bring feelings of nostalgia and this June should be no different, as many artists are releasing albums after a lengthy amount of time off. One of the most exciting releases is the reunion album from Black Sabbath
, '13.' It's the band's first album since 1995 and it's the first time in 35 years that Ozzy Osbourne is the lead singer on a Black Sabbath record. The classic heavy metal rockers released 'God Is Dead?' as their first single this past April. Meanwhile, alternative rockers Jimmy Eat World
have released 'Damage,' their first record since 2010 and their first release under RCA. Their first single 'I Will Steal You Back' has already begun making its way up the alternative charts.
June should be a great month for some R&B nostalgia as well. Ashanti
is scheduled to release her first album since 2008. 'Braveheart' features many collaborations, most notably the album's first single 'The Woman You Love' with Busta Rhymes. R. Kelly, Keyshia Cole, and Meek Mill are just a few of the big names to also contribute to the anticipated album. Additionally, Kelly Rowland
will release 'Talk a Good Game' on June 17th. It's Rowland's fourth solo album and includes an impressive list of producers and collaborators. The album's first single 'Ice' features Lil Wayne and Wiz Khalifa joins Rowland on the song 'Gone.'
It's been a long time since 'MMMBop' but Hanson's
still releasing new music. 'Anthem' will be released June 18th and is the band's ninth studio album. Joining them this month, is current boy-band and teenage sensations Big Time Rush.
The band's third studio album is titled '24/Seven' and features the promotional single 'Like Nobody's Around.' The band became heavily involved in the songwriting process for this album, writing dozens of songs that were considered.
