Jack White - Lazaretto
The enigmatic frontman of The White Stripes, Dead Weather and The Raconteurs based his second solo album largely off stories he wrote as a teenager and more recently discovered in an attic.
Passenger - Whispers (Deluxe)
For his fifth album, Michael David Rosenberg, the British folk singer behind the heartbreaking international hit “Let Her Go,” made an effort to craft more upbeat songs.
Poliça - Shulasmith (Deluxe)
The Minneapolis synthpop act’s sophomore album is beefed up with four brand new songs.
Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers - “American Dream Plan B”
The first single off of the forthcoming Hypnotic Eye is a catchy hint at the album’s straight-ahead hard rock direction.
