New Music Releases for 2018 & what we hear in 2018

GettyImages-521073344-920x584

As Christmas approaches, so album releases for this year are slowing down to the bare minimum of festive themed records, greatest hits collections and the odd big name record. Just because the music world is taking a little break doesn’t mean there’s nothing to get excited about, though. Next year already looks set to be embarrassingly good, quite frankly, with some major new releases already on the cards. Let us guide you through some of the biggest and most exciting albums confirmed, expected or just anticipated to be gifted to us in 2018.

When’s it out? TBA
What’s on it? Nothing has been confirmed at present.
What has he said about it? “It’s good gardening music or roofing music or, you know, back-alley stabbing music. I’m trying to think of some good activities that people haven’t written songs for yet.”

 

When’s it out? April 6
What’s on it? “Widescreen melancholia”, apparently.
What have they said about it? A statement accompanying the record’s announcement said: “The main themes of ‘Resistance is Futile’ are memory and loss; forgotten history; confused reality and art as a hiding place and inspiration. It’s obsessively melodic – in many ways referencing both the naive energy of ‘Generation Terrorists’ and the orchestral sweep of ‘Everything Must Go’.”

 

When’s it out? TBA
What’s on it? We’d expect massive single ‘Boys’ to be on there, but the tracklist is still under wraps.
What has she said about it? “I’m not going to touch the album until two months before it’s going to come out, because if I started working on it again I would probably write another four albums.”

When’s it out? January 19
What’s on it? The Britney Spears-referencing ‘Young And Menace’, and the electro-rock of ‘Champion’.
What have they said about it? “Sonically, we are sewing multiple eras of – both our own band and own influences – together in a way that is completely new to us through both the production and writing process.” – Pete Wentz

When’s it out? TBA
What’s on it? The band have yet to confirm any details, but they’ve been playing three new songs live of late – ‘Kindness Is The New Rock’n’Roll’, ‘When You Were Young’ and ‘Mental Head’.
What have they said about it? “It’s definitely like no record I’ve heard before. It doesn’t sound like anything that I can put my finger on – which is a good thing but it’s a scary thing as well.” – Harry Koisser

When’s it out? TBA
What’s on it? There are no precise details confirmed, but the band have said it will likely be seven or eight tracks, and clock in at 40 minutes.
What have they said about it? “In some respects, some of it is a bit straightforward. The MBV album that we did in 2013 feels more meandery and not as concise. This one is like if somebody took that and dropped some acid on it or created a dimensional clash or something. It’s more all over the place… The record I am making now is not so much about death and change as freedom of the soul.” – Kevin Shields

When’s it out? January 26
What’s on it? Collaborations with Bastille, AJ Tracey and Kaytranada, amongst others.
What has he said about it? “These songs feel like they’ll stand the test of time.”

 

When’s it out? TBA
What’s on it? “Quite a cast characters”, according to frontman Ezra Koenig.
What have they said about it? “I wanted to do something that at least has elements of spring time you know because life has to keep going.” – Ezra Koenig

 

When’s it out? TBA
What’s on it? Collaborations with The Weeknd and Travis Scott, plus singles ‘Cold Water’, ‘Believer’, ‘Run Up’ and ‘Know No Better’.
What have they said about it? Not a whole lot.

When’s it out? Early 2018
What’s on it? No details as yet, but expect a first single before 2017 is out.
What have they said about it? Not much, besides confirming it’s on the way.

How to get free Apple Music

Apple Music, Apple’s music streaming service and Spotify rival, arrived in 2015 for iPhone and iPad. It’s now also available for Android, PC, Mac, Apple Watch, CarPlay, Apple TV and Sonos. Here, we show you how to get Apple Music for free.

Apple Music gives you access to more than 30 million tracks, and you’ll get playlists and recommendations tailored to you.

There are 3 methods that you can get Apple Music for Free.

Method 1. Apple Music free trial

If that sounds like something you’re interested in, you’ll be pleased to hear that Apple offers a really great free trial of Apple Music. If you’ve never tried Apple Music before you’ll be able to get three months absolutely free of charge, with no catch and no questions asked.

To do so, visit Apple’s website by clicking here, and choose ‘Free Trial’ in the top right corner, or click ‘Try it free for three months’ on the relevant plan.

There are three plans available: Student, Individual and Family. Each can be purchased as a monthly subscription or annual (which gets you 12 months for the price of 10).

If you absolutely don’t want to pay for Apple Music once your three month trial is over, you must make sure to cancel your subscription as it automatically renews.

Method 2. Get an extra three months of Apple Music

Once you’ve used the trial you won’t be able to get another three months free using the same method, even if you wait a year or so. But there is a trick to getting an extra three months.

If you’re happy to use Family Sharing, you could get another member of your family to sign up for the free trial of the Apple Music Family Sharing plan, and then share that with you. You’ll then be able to take advantage of an extra three months for free. In fact, it can be shared between up to six people so you could share the free trial with other family members too.

Method 3. Convert downloaded Apple Music to MP3, AAC, FLAC and WAV

Apple Music is pre-installed on all Apple devices, and available as a free download for non-Apple PCs and mobile devices.

When you sign up for Apple Music, you get a free three month free trial with full access to all of the features. After that, you’ll be charged $10 per month unless you cancel. Apple Music costs $9.99 monthly, with a $14.99 family plan option for up to six people.

Step 1. From the next download button to download the latest version of Apple Music Converter for Mac OS X (or Windows version), install and run it.

Windows Version Download

Mac Version Download

Tips: What you download is a free trial version, that you can only convert 3 minutes each file. If you want to get a full version without limitations, just click the Shopping Cart icon to get the license info including registration name and key.

Step 2. Click “+” button to load your Apple Music files.

Choose the Music library in the drop-down list, and then choose the Apple Music files you want to convert. Batch conversion is also supported by Macsome iTunes Converter, you can import several music files and convert them one by one.

Step 3. Click “iTunes Converter Menu” — “Preferences” to set the output audio format, or you can click the set icon directly. There are four output formats including MP3, AAC, FLAC, WAV for users to choose. Just choose a suitable audio format according to your need.

Step 4. Click “CONVERT” button to start the converting.

All the Apple Music files can be converted one by one. After several minutes, you can get the unprotected AAC audio files and play them anytime and anywhere.

After the M4P to MP3 Conversion, you can click the Inspector to reset the files’ tag info as you need. You can also use the default one.

Apple doesn’t offer a free version of Apple Music. There is no ad-supported option available, although you can access a few of the Apple Music features such as Beats1 Radio and the ability to follow an artist’s Connect stream. You can also listen to selected ad-supported radio stations but there will be limited song skips available there.
