He has a single from the album “Show You the Way,” a duet track with Michael McDonald and Kenny Loggins ("Danger Zone," "Footloose"). That’s real.

6. Temples - Volcano (March 3rd)

Temples is almost there with their new anticipated album Volcano. It has been three years since Sun Structures, and hopefully the English rock band can still bring that harmonious psychedelic rock. (Sun Structures was once number #7 in U.K.’s rock charts). Here’s “Certainty” from the next album.

On January 24, 2017, the band Real Estate released a new single and music video “Darling” for their next debut album In Mind. This will be their fourth studio album, but this time without guitarist Matt Mondanile, who wanted to continue on his solo project Ducktails. It seems as though Real Estate hasn’t lost their groove.

This husband and wife duo, Patrick Riley and Alaina Moore, are coming out with their fourth album Yours Conditionally. This will be their fourth album release since 2014’s album Ritual in Repeat. In December 2016, they released a music video from the new album, “In the Morning I’ll Be Better.”

This will be the band’s ninth studio album since 2014’s They Want My Soul. Hot Thoughts is set to be release next month, and in January, they released the title track of their album. Let’s hope for some tour dates from the indie rockers.

Wu-Tang member Raekwon is 47-years-old and will be releasing The Wild. This will be the seventh studio album for the Staten Island native and legend.The Chef has cooked up cover art for his upcoming album, and on February 16th, he released a single “Purple Brick Road,” featuring G-Eazy.

Damage and Joy will be released on March 24th from the “Just Like Honey” hit makers. They do have a single “Amputations” released, to bring the case that they haven’t lost their 90s alternative, noise-pop style.


14. Mastodon - Emperor of Sand (March 31st)

Atlanta native’s Mastodon has been working on the album Emperor of Sand. This being their 7th studio album, it will hopefully be released next month. Mastodon is a highly acclaimed band with a huge fan-base querying for any new content from the once Grammy nominated band for Metal Performance.

Future Islands will be releasing their fifth studio album The Far Field in April, ever since making critical acclaim with 2014 album Singles. With a growing fanbase, on January 31st, they released a single from the next anticipated album. It is called “Ran,” almost sounding equivalent to “Seasons (Waiting On You).”


17. The Black Angels - Death Song (April 21st)

This will be the fourth album from the Austin psych-rockers. This album, Death Song, will hopefully carry that heavy material of biker rock with dramatic dark tones. I can’t wait for this album; it has been four years since Indigo Meadow. Here’s “Currency,” the latest single from the new album.


18. Gorillaz - TBA


We have been eagerly waiting for a return from the Gorillaz. They have a released a singe “Hallelujah Money” featuring Benjamin Clementine in early January.

Lead singer and founder of Death From Above records, James Murphy promised for a new album.The last album recorded was This Is Happening in 2011.They have been working on the album with Columbia Records and will hopefully get some kind of buzz for a release this year, hopefully soon. The last song they've recorded was a Christmas song in 2015.

R&B artist SZA has been on hiatus for her next album. Last summer she released her single “twoAM,” a revised version of PARTYNEXTDOOR and Drake’s “Come and See Me.” There was controversy with her label Top Dawg Entertainment about the release date of her album. In January 2017, she did a live performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live, announcing her album is called CTRL. With a single “Drew Barrymore,” from the album being available, all we need to know is when the album release is.

13 Father's Day Shirts Under $30 To Gift The Dad Wearing The Same Two Every Day In Quarantine

You've been begging him to change it up, and now he won't have a choice.

Let's be honest: most of our dads are wearing the same shirts today that they probably wore while changing our diapers and holding our hands as we learned to walk. Sure, we love them for it. But whether you're quarantined with him wearing the same two shirts on rotation every week, or every time you FaceTime him, you know what he'll be wearing before he answers the phone, he needs to add some new items to his wardrobe rotation.

And you know dads — they'll feel guilted into using practically anything you were to give them. But these shirts are sure-fire ways to get him to switch up his wardrobe, and he'll be more than excited to wear each and every one of them. Plus, most of them are under twenty dollars, so no harm in dropping more than a couple in to your cart and letting Dad have his pick of his favorites.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Hollis Tuttle To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.

My Boyfriend Has Changed Since Quarantine Began, And I Don't Know What To Do

"All he says is 'I love you,' which is great and all but OMG I can't get anything else out of him."

Each week Swoonie B will give her advice on anonymous topics submitted by readers. Want to Ask Swoonie B something related to dating and relationships? Fill out this form here — it's anonymous.

Dear Swoonie B,

My boyfriend and I have been dating for almost a year, which has been the best year of my life (as far as i know). Well we go to different schools and are both very involved in sports and school activities which makes it hard to see each other. During this quarantine it is especially hard. Since we haven't seen each other in over a week things are kind of tense. He won't really talk to me much and I always check in on him to make sure he is doing well and to just see how he is, ya know being a girlfriend. Well apparently that is driving him crazy and I don't understand how. I'm not being controling or clingy, i'm just checking in on him. While this is happening, I also have noticed how he just doesn't really care anymore. I'll leave him paragraphs of sweet love letters to wake up to and I encourage him throughout his day but I just don't get it in return. I love him with all of me and I obviously care about him a lot. Also, I've compared how he talked to me before all of this has happened. He was so sweet and caring, texting me a lot and telling me he loves me and just making sure everything is OK but he doesn't do that anymore. All he says is "I love you," which is great and all but OMG I can't get anything else out of him. He is a little stressed at home with trying to find another job to pay for his car, constantly having to do things for his mom, being responsible for his siblings, and managing school. I know thats a lot but im doing a lot too right now and going through a lot of the same stuff he is but It seems to me he just does not care and i don't know what to do. Please help me or give me some advice on what to say, what not to say, what to do, what not to do. Anything at this point will help. Thank you!

If I had a dollar for every time I heard "these are unprecedented times," I'd be rich. But that's because it's true!

Tower 28

On paper, Amy Liu appears to be one of the most intimidating women in the beauty business. Not only was she the person to build Smashbox Cosmetics into what it is today, she went on to lead luxury, high-end brands like Kate Somerville and Josie Maran — just to name a few.

But sitting down to meet Liu for the first time in an underground New York bar over a year ago felt like meeting a friend I'd known since childhood. As she walked into the bar in a chic red dress, it was impossible not to feel her immediate warm presence. When she talks about her history as an entrepreneur (and truly, at heart, she always was one), you don't get the sense that she's selling you anything, though with her impeccable taste, I'd use anything that had her glowing review attached to it.

Sixth grade was the year that you were allowed to participate in a school sport. This was what my friends and I had all been waiting for since we started middle school. I had already made the cheer team with my friends, but I had to wait to start that in the winter since we cheered for basketball. I really wanted to have some sort of activity in the fall, but I did not know what to do. Somehow, I decided to run cross country. Not really sure how I decided on a sport where it was quite literally just running. A few of my friends were doing it as well, so I knew it was going to be fun.

Working Out Every Day During Quarantine Helps Me Feel A Sense Of Control

Physical activity helps my mental health in a world that feels uncertain.

Before the pandemic, I exercised a handful of times a week at best. In quarantine, I've been exercising every single day. I don't want this article to be another spiel about how exercise "changed my life," and all the other cliches that health gurus use to convince others to work out more. Rather, I want to reveal that exercise is a tool that works for me because it boosts my mental health when I feel like the world is spiraling out of control.

To say that 2020 has been a bit of a roller coaster is an extreme understatement. Who knew that this decade was going to start off like THIS!? Not me, not you, and not that sweet old lady who lives down the street. One thing is certain though — while the world may be a mess right now, you can still fuel your body with food that keeps you happy and healthy. Thankfully, as we are all spending more time inside, you can get healthy snacks delivered straight to your front door! Amazon has never been more convenient (and tasty).
