June 2

Passion Pit 

The Massachusetts-based indie band, who have gifted us with hits like “Sleepyhead” and “The Reeling,” release an expanded digital version of their sophomore album, “Gossamer.”


Foo Fighters

The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductees announced the release of their new project, 

But Here We Are,” a “brutally honest and emotionally raw response to everything Foo Fighters have endured over the last year.” This will be the band’s first project since the death of drummer Taylor Hawkins. 


Beach Fossils

As with the band’s previous albums, expect a melodic, mellow undertone with a strong emphasis on the guitar. Fans whisper about the theme of their seventh studio album “Bunny.” 


Big Time Rush

This one may reel in some nostalgia for Nickelodeon fans. Pop group Big Time Rush releases its fourth studio album, “Another Life,” the group’s first album under their independent label.   


June 9

Youth Lagoon

“Heaven is a Junkyard” comes out after seven years of silence from Youth Lagoon’s Trevor Powers. Powers’ has already released three songs off of the anticipated album with “The Sling” and “Idaho Alien” having a dark but dulcet undertone, and “Prizefighter” having a slight pop accompaniment. Epic lyricism is to be presumed.


Milky Chance

With summer classics like “Stunner” and “Stolen Dance,” the German band has decided to grace us with their new album, “Living in a Haze.”  The early release of the title track predicts an upbeat album perfect for a Florida summer.


June 16

Ben Howard

Fans may be in for something a bit different from Howard. With the influence of electronic beats, “Is It?” shifts from his usual neo-folk sound with plenty of variety. Born out of a serious health scare for Howard, the new release is being descried as a “sonically splintered album… [capturing] Howard working through the moments of seismic shift.” 


Queens of the Stone Age

The Washington natives known for hits such as “Go with the Flow” and “Mosquito Song” have announced their new album, “In Times New Roman.” The release of their single “Emotion Sickness” continues to highlight their classic rock sound, which will be nice to hear in 2023. This is the band’s first album in five years. 


Kiana Ledé

Ledé’s sophomore album, “Grudges,” comes three years after her debut album, “KIKI,” which was met with optimistic reviews. “Grudges” will feature another collab with Grammy winner Ella Mai. The R&B singer’s previous hits such as “Ex” and “Wicked Games” and the release of the  title point to a potentially sultry soulful record. 


June 23

Kelly Clarkson

The singer-turned-talk-show-host’s 10th studio album, “Chemistry,” is being dubbed her “post-breakup album” after divorcing music producer Brandon Blackstock. The release of her single, “me and mine” from the album, showcases Clarkson’s vulnerable lyricism with soulful vocals.
