New Music Friday, Nov. 20, 2020

The High Note

The days keep getting shorter and they sure do seem like it now that we’re only a week away from Thanksgiving.

I don’t know if it’s the colder weather or the thoughts of turkey and football already doing touchdowns in my head but I need all the extra dressing to get these drumsticks moving today.

As we get ready for the weekend, we have at least one thing in common to celebrate and that’s New Music Friday. Today, as another sign of the holidays, Josh Groban has a new album out and there is also “Good News” for Megan Thee Stallion fans. I also can’t forget about K-pop sensation BTS with the group’s new album “Be.”

I’m most stoked about the latest album from Australian rockers King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard and the new project from Dirty Projectors. Neil Young also released his second volume of tracks from the archives and John Fogerty has a family album. Lastly, Phoebe Bridgers teams up with Rob Moose to remix some of her tracks with “Copycat Killer.”

As always, the entire list of albums released today, Friday, Nov. 20, 2020 is below in no particular order, but my most anticipated albums are in bold. Please let me know what you’re listening to in the comments below or on social media.
