Upcoming Releases

The biggest selling album of 2000 was NSync's No Strings Attached which netted 9,900,000 copies sold. The biggest selling album in 2007 was a Christmas album, Josh Groban's Noel, which only managed 3,600,000 copies. It would take 2.75 Noel's to equal the success of No Strings Attached and maybe that's what the record industry needs; more releases.
2008 has already boasted new albums from big names, notably Mariah Carey, Madonna, Usher, Lil Wayne and Coldplay. Still, the year's sales are predicted to be below last years. November and December and two of the most important months for all of retail and music is no exception. Late 2008 is boasting more big name releases to add to the already illustrious list, but will it be enough?

Oct. 7 - Oasis Dig Out Your Soul
Oct. 16 - AC/DC Black Ice
Nov. 4 - Fall Out Boy Folie A Deux
Nov. 4 - Hillary Duff The Best of Hillary Duff
Nov. 11 - Missy Elliott Block Party
Nov. 11 - Christina Aguilera Keeps Gettin' Better (A Decade of Hits)
Nov. 18 - Beyonce TBA
Nov. 18 - Kelly Clarkson TBA
Nov. 18 - David Cook TBA
Nov. 25 - The Killers Day & Age
Dec. 2 - Britney Spears Circus
Dec. 16 - Kanye West 808's and Heartbreak

OK, we were joking about Hillary Duff. But dude, anyone who's anyone besides U2 has or will release and album in 2008. Don't worry, their twelfth studio release is slated for early 2009.

808s and Heartbreaks? That's Kanye's first album not to have a school related title. I guess he did graduate...

You were joking about Hillary Duff? She's totally going to outsell everyone on that list combined.
