Zam’s Jams

Three years and a tour later, soul-capturing Coldplay will release their sixth album Ghost Stories. Though the electronic, Bon Iver-sounding single “Midnight” and the ever-so-romantic single “Magic” veer from their past sound, Coldplay have always added a twist to their sweet tunes.


Expected release date: May 19



Back with their gritty rock are The Black Keys with Turn Blue. They’ve teased the public with a few creepy, outlandish Youtube videos and the psychedelic-ish single, “Fever.” It has a bit of a pop feel to it, but very well could have been any song off an older album.


Expected release date: May 13


Swedish band Little Dragon is back with their third album Nabuma Rubberband. Their promising single “Klapp Klapp” is laden with jazzy, cosmic synthpop vibes. Yukimi Nagano is-, as usual, on point with her vocals.


Expected release date: May 13



Brace yourself for the rising female rapper Iggy Azalea’s debut album The New Classic. The girl’s got bars I didn’t think an Aussie could spit, but check out her singles “Work,” “Change Your Life” featuring T.I., and “Fancy” featuring Charli XCX — all great to bump to at the gym or before a night out.


Expected release date: April 2
