This busy month for album releases concludes with, what else, a busy day for album releases! Diamond-studded singer Yola reunites with producer Dan Auerbach on Stand for Myself. Dialing up the anthems and emotions of her breakthrough, Walk Through Fire, Yola’s new set is bold and uncompromising. Speaking of followups, Happier Than Ever marks the long-awaited return of Billie Eilish; the album points to new creative frontiers for the young superstar. Veteran Los Angelenos Los Lobos salute their hometown’s musical heritage on Native Sons, offering up covers of The Beach Boys and Jackson Browne. After firmly establishing himself as producer to the stars, Jack Antonoff returns to his Bleachers project for Take the Sadness Out of Saturday Night, with guests including Bruce Springsteen and Lana Del Rey.

Just over a year removed from her solo album Song for Our Daughter, Laura Marling resurrects her collaboration with Tuung’s Mike Lindsay, LUMP, for the percolating Animal. Mackenzie Scott’s latest as Torres, Thirstier, features some of the singer/guitarist’s heaviest riffs and most heart-rending lyrics yet. Soulful Bloomington combo Durand Jones & The Indications embrace disco rhythms and retro production flourishes on their third LP, Private Space. Recorded in 2010 and subsequently shelved, a deluxe edition of Prince‘s Welcome 2 America includes a full concert by the New Power Generation, recorded at The Forum in Inglewood, California in 2011.
