A Calendar Of Upcoming Releases

As summer arrives, options for new listening for the season are many. As you can see in the following schedule of releases for the next two months, there is something for every taste.

Female stars figure prominently, with new titles from Lana Del Rey, Lorde and Katy Perry expected to make a mark. On the Canadian front, a just- announced new album from Arcade Fire joins notable releases from the likes of Broken Social Scene, Headstones, Nickelback, and Whitehorse.

On the reissues side, the imminent 30th anniversary edition of U2 blockbuster The Joshua Tree leads the way.

Happy listening!
