Well summer is officially over, and as we say goodbye to the warm weather and long days, we say hello to autumn and all of the music set to be released

The month’s most anticipated release, however, might just possibly be Coldplay’s Mylo Xyloto, which is pegged to be the biggest hit of the fall.

this season. The end of September already provided some exciting releases, including J. Cole’s Cole World: The Sideline Story, Jason Derülo’s Future History, and blink-182’s comeback album, Neighborhoods. However, with fall only just beginning, there’re a lot more exciting releases on their way!

Starting in early October, we’ll see last year’s American Idol champ and runner-up battle it out for country domination. Winner Scotty McCreey is releasing his debut album, followed by Lauren Alaina, who came in second, releasing hers just one week later. However, both of them might be upstaged by country superstar Martina McBride, who is releasing her album, Eleven, at the same time. Other releases include Jack’s Mannequin’s People and Things, Björk’s highly anticipated Biophilia album, being released both on CD and as a series of apps, Britney Spears’s second remix album, B in the Mix: The Remixes Vol. 2, and Fall Out Boy frontman Patrick Stump’s first full-length solo album, Soul Punk.

Later in the month, Kelly Clarkson will release her anticipated Stronger album, coming off the heels of her current hit single, “Mr. Know It All.” Drake is also on the map with his sophomoric studio album, Take Care. The month’s most anticipated release, however, might just possibly be Coldplay’s Mylo Xyloto, which is pegged to be the biggest hit of the fall.

November is kicking off with an album 45 years in the making. Quite possibly the most famous unreleased album of all time, The Beach Boys’ Smile, is finally getting a release. To celebrate their 50th Anniversary, the band has re-formed to finish up the album as close to how it would have been released in the 60’s. Other classic acts releasing new music include Lou Reed and Metallica and their collaboration album, Lulu and a brand new Van Halen album, simply titled Van Halen IV. American rockers Daughtry and Nickleback will be going head to head with their new albums at the end of the month, but it could be Rihanna who tops them both with her currently untitled sixth studio album. Released almost exactly a year after her previous LP, Loud, the music was initially planned as a re-release, but evolved into an album of its own. Ri recently released the project’s first single, “We Found Love” in collaboration with Calvin Harris.

With the changing of the seasons in full swing, it’s nice to know that there’ll be so much new music (both bad and good) to look forward to!
