The High Note

It’s Labor Day weekend but The High Note isn’t going to leave you hanging high and dry on the hot sand – I’ve got you covered with all the latest albums for your barbecues and parties. No matter where you’re at, I hope you have an awesome and safe weekend. And take a break, would ya? You deserve it.

Holiday weekends are typically slow in the music world but that hasn’t stopped some great artists from dropping from new albums today. Big Sean has a new album, as does soul singer Billy Ocean. I’m eyeing the new album by The Pineapple Thief and for the Patti Smith fans, she has a new installment in her “Sidewalk Collective” series.

Below, in no particular order, is my list of new albums released today, Friday, Sept. 4, 2020 in no particular order. My most anticipated albums are in bold.
