The 50 Most Anticipated Albums of 2013

danny brown suit The 50 Most Anticipated Albums of 2013Now that our best of 2012 lists are completed and behind us, it’s time to look to the coming year. Welcome to our roundup of the most anticipated albums of 2013, which features a nice mix of albums both confirmed and rumored to drop. Of course, we tried to keep the latter of those to a minimum, but we couldn’t pass up making some comments about, say, Jay Electronica’s probably-never-being-released Act II.

We couldn’t fit all of those rumored releases on here, however, because then we would just be going on and on about albums we want to drop that might never come out. Anyway, here are our picks for the projects we can’t wait to hear in 2013. Keep in mind there are plenty more up in the air that we would have loved to put on here, like all the records Roc Marciano said he’s completed and the likely new album from Jay-Z.

    I’m pumped for Local Natives. Oh and anything BADBADNOTGOOD put out. And JT’s ‘The 20/20 Experience’ could be worth a listen

    GZA’S DARK MATTER. VON PEA & AEON WITH DULY NOTED EP. MAYBE A NEW TANYA MORGAN ALBUM ALSO. A NEW COMPUTER MAGIC ALBUM IS SUPPOSED TO BE IN THE WORKS. A NEW SOLO RECORD FROM DESSA. BLUE SKY BLACK DEATH HAS A NEW INSTRUMENTAL RECORD CALLED GLACIERS. ANOTHER NEW ONE WITH NACHO PICASSO. ERIC G AND SKYWLKR ARE WORKING ON INDIVIDUAL INSTRUMENTAL ALBUMS. SHAD IS WORKING ON A NEW ALBUM. STILL WAITING ON SOMETHING/ ANYTHING FROM EDAN. MOKA ONLY IS ALWAYS COOKING SOMETHING UP. PEA SWAIN WITH VON PEA & DANNY!. I’M ONLY CHECKING IT OUT FOR VON. NOT TOO MUCH INTO DANNY!’S MUSIC. A NEW LYKKE LI ALBUM WOULD BE GREAT. LILA ROSE & ERIC DENNISTON EP. SOMETHING FROM ROBYN.
