The High Note

Happy Friday everyone! We’re now approaching the unofficial start to the summer season while we’re on stay-at-home orders. But that’s just one more reason to find some fresh tunes to fuel your Memorial Day weekend.

While you’re out there, hopefully keeping a safe distance, take some time to remember what the holiday is all about – honoring those who died while they were actively serving the United States military.

Traditionally, record labels shy away from releasing albums around the holidays, but there are some gems that I sifted through the sand.

Here are The High Note’s picks for new albums released today, Friday, May 22, 2020. They are in no particular order but my most anticipated albums are in bold.
