The High Note

This week we’re celebrating a special Fourth of July weekend edition of New Music Friday. July 4 is an underrated music holiday – after all, what barbecue or party doesn’t have some tunes blasting to keep the bodies moving.

There are a couple of albums of note released today, Friday, July 3, including the latest from Willie Nelson, Gucci Mane, Pop Smoke, Dream Wife and Lil Wayne. Also, Morgan James has a new album worth checking out.

No matter where you are celebrating America’s birthday, The High Note wishes you a safe and healthy holiday. You can’t throw up the metal horns once concerts come back if you’ve blown off your fingers in a fireworks accident.
