NEW ALBUM RELEASES

+ Avril LavigneAvril Lavigne: From the lilting, poignant ballad “Let Me Go” featuring her hubby Chad Kroeger of Nickelback, to the youthful party anthem “Here’s To Never Growing Up” and the defiantly infectious “Rock N Roll,” Avril conjures ALL the feelings on her fifth studio album.

+ EminemThe Marshall Mathers LP 2: Em’s album No. 8 is a sequel to the lauded 2000 release, The Marshall Mathers LP. As such, the record pairs old-school hip-hop with the rapper’s signature spitfire rhymes on tracks like the vehement “Rap God” and NSFW “Berzerk.” Guests include Kendrick Lamar, Rihanna, fun.‘s Nate Ruess, and Skylar Grey.

+ The WantedWord Of Mouth: With recent romances between Ariana Grande and Nathan Sykes and Max George with model Nina Agdal, the bandmates are certainly living up to their name. And who wouldn’t want guys who just want you to “Show Me Love,” sing that they’re lost until “I Found You,” and declare “We Own The Night“?

Check out more new album releases, upcoming TV appearances, and performances after the jump.

+ M.I.A.Matangi: Titled after her given name (Mathangi), M.I.A.’s fourth effort combines world-tipped beats with musical nods to her Sri Lankan roots. Watch the Hindu goddess-depicting “Come Walk With Me” lyric video, and check out “Y.A.L.A.,” “Bad Girls,” and “Bring The Noize.”

+ Cut CopyFree Your Mind: On their fifth studio album, the Aussie synthpoppers craft trippy extended dance jams that aim for the cosmos — or at least wee-hours grooving. Listen to the shimmery “Free Your Mind” and funk-tastic space joint “Let Me Show You,” either of which could rule any dance floor on this planet and beyond.
