Must List

Upcoming albums you should have on your radar

This just in: Your Spotify Liked Songs playlist is about to get a whole lot longer. Some of our fave artists are releasing new music soon (like, v. soon), and we couldn't be more excited. Keep your eyes (and ears) out for these upcoming albums, dropping in the next few months...

1) BEBE, Bebe Rexha


Bebe Rexha's third studio album, BEBE, will be out April 28. In an Instagram post, Bebe released the full tracklist of 12 songs, complete with a collaboration with Snoop Dogg as well as a song called "Seasons" featuring Dolly Parton.

The album also includes "I'm Good (Blue)" featuring David Guetta, which was released on its own in August 2022 and has already become a staple on all of our playlists. If the single's success is any indicator, we have a feeling there are a few more hits heading our way very soon.

2) Subtract, Ed Sheeran


A post shared by Ed Sheeran (@teddysphotos)

In an Instagram post, Ed Sheeran announced his fifth studio album, Subtract, would be released on May 5. Ed describes this new album as "opening the trapdoor into my soul." We can expect a heartfelt and honest reflection of Ed's recent experiences.

A separate post shows a video of Ed walking along the ocean with what appears to be song titles, including "Saltwater" and "Boat," written in the sand. Knowing his talent and superb lyricism, we have no doubt this is going to be an amazing album.

3) The Show, Niall Horan


Niall Horan's new album, The Show, will be out on June 9. In his Instagram announcement, Niall says, "This album is a piece of work I'm so proud of and now it's time to pass it over to you to go and make it your own." 

Niall has also shared his 10-song tracklist including his single, "Heaven," which dropped on Feb. 17, as well as his next single, "Meltdown," which will be available to listen to on April 28. Trust us when we say we're *so* excited for June. Until then, we'll be tuning into "The Voice" to see Niall coach, natch.

4) The Good Witch, Maisie Peters

Maisie Peters' second album, The Good Witch will be out on June 16. In her Instagram post announcing her new era, Maisie explained that "This album contains my great, my bad, my ugly; it is the truest reflection of my life this past year and I hope you see that."

If June seems like a lifetime away and you just can't wait to listen to some of Maisie's new music (understandable), never fear! She already released two singles from the album: "Body Better" and "Lost the Breakup."

5) chemistry, Kelly Clarkson


chemistry, Kelly Clarkson's upcoming album, will be out June 23. On Instagram, Kelly explained that "having chemistry with someone is an incredible, and whelming, feeling... This album takes you down every path that chemistry could lead you down."

It's no secret that Kelly Clarkson has had some absolutely *iconic* songs over the years: "Since U Been Gone," "Stronger," "Piece by Piece," to name just a few. We can't imagine this tracklist being any different. Her two singles off the album, "mine" and "me" are out now.
