There’s some big albums expected to drop in 2017… we’re looking at you, U2, Foo Fighters, and Springsteen!

Here’s what we’re looking forward to:




Expected to be a companion to 2014’s ‘Songs of Innocence’, a new album is set to come in 2017. In an interview with Rolling Stone, guitarist Edge says they have roughly 50 song ideas on the table and about 20 they’re really excited about. He goes on to say, “we’re now at the point of starting to really edit down to the core collection of songs that will make the record. Things are still in their rough state, but sounding really great.” And with a recent concert announcement, we can expect to see the band live, possibly before hearing any new music!

With the band agreeing to perform at the BottleRock Napa Valley Festival in May 2017, news of the album was revealed by Dave Graham, CEO of Latitude 38, the entertainment company behind BottleRock, stating: “The Foo Fighters are in the studio all next year (2017) recording a new album and BottleRock may be their only show in 2017 in North America.” This album would follow 2014’s Sonic Highways.


Bruce Springsteen:


With a busy 2016, Springsteen will keep the momentum going into the new year, with a solo album to come in 2017. Apparently, the album has been recorded for over a year now, so could drop whenever the Boss is ready!

Chris Martin dropped this note on twitter in 2016, stating that new music is on the way. The band also has a tour lined up for this year, with a stop in Vancouver.



Also expected to come in 2017, new music from Pink, Liam Gallagher, possibly The Killers, and Fleetwood Mac, among others.  And, despite recent tragedy, George Michael was set to release a 25th anniversary edition of his 1990 album ‘Listen Without Prejudice’ that may still come, as well as Prince, who has a ton of unreleased music that could come down the pipe as well.

HERE‘s a full list of albums anticipated for 2017.
