New Music Friday – Oct. 23, 2020

The High Note

New Music Friday is definitely my favorite day of the week. I love waking up to the smell of fresh music being pumped through my speakers. The best part is that every Friday is always a surprise.

Sure, I could look up what is coming out before, and sometimes I hear about things, Like the new Bruce Springsteen album, and completely forget about them. So every Friday is like Christmas morning at The High Note.

In addition to the aforementioned new album by The Boss, Gorillaz has collected the songs from the first season of “Song Machine” and Beastie Boys and The Bouncing Souls both have new collections of old songs.

I’m most looking forward new albums by Red Hot Chili Peppers guitarist John Frusciante, Major Lazer, The Mountain Goats and Pup. Jeff Tweedy, Laura Veirs and Ben Harper all have albums that will bring me right back to sophomore year of college. I also have to give it up to Joe Bonamassa and Sharon Jones and The Dap-Kings who both deserve a listen.

As always, the full list of releases is below with my most anticipated albums in bold. Let me know what you’re listening to in the comments or on social media.
