Fall brings new music releases


When Bob Dylan, the Dave Matthews Band, Nelly Furtado, the Avett Brothers, David Byrne with St. Vincent, the Chris Robinson Brotherhood, the xx and the Raveonettes all have albums — and they’re all coming out today — you know you’ve got a busy music season ahead.

The cluster continues the next week with releases from P!nk, the Killers, Kanye West with his G.O.O.D. Music roster, Carly Rae Jepsen, Wiz Khalifa, Sean Paul, Dwight Yoakam, Ne-Yo, Little Big Town, Ben Folds Five, Grizzly Bear and more. Further into fall, Taylor Swift will have the Billboard charts seeing “Red,” One Direction’s second album will have girls shrieking, Green Day will release two albums, and folk phenomenon Mumford & Sons hope to scale new heights with “Babel.”

It can all be pretty overwhelming, but this handy guide, covering significant releases through November, will help you make sense of it all.
