Looking Ahead: Albums set to release in 2016

February 1, 2016

As the first month of 2016 concludes, there’s a lot on all of our minds. For some, it’s those New Year’s resolutions we haven’t quite gotten to, that make us believe we have a long year ahead of us. But a new year means lots of new music, and that’s all that matters. From albums that have just been announced to albums we’ve been waiting on for two years (yes, I’m talking about Frank Ocean); 2016 is an exciting time for every genre of music.
