I go through spurts of new music and it seems that my favorite artists all release albums in the same years/months. So lately I find myself with a lot of new music on preorder.
About two months ago, I bought the new Ingrid Michaelson album, Lights Out. I love the title track, and I was hooked the first time I heard her first single from this album, Girls Chase Boys. (And little known fact, I have interviewed Ingrid for a couple of stories and podcasts in my newspaper days. Personally, I’ve been a fan of her music for years, and the first interview was not the most enjoyable experience for me. I did a second interview and it was totally redeeming for me.)
So. Lights Out. The majority of the album made it to my iPod playlist for my half marathon.
Yesterday, I received the Ed Sheeran album (digitally and in the mail.) I had heard Sing for weeks on the radio (and I kept confusing him with Justin Timberlake until about halfway through the song – every. time.) I’m on my third listen of the album, X. I. love. it. My favorite song at the moment is Bloodstream. I haven’t heard a song yet that I don’t like.
Next month, Jason Mraz has a new album coming out. Yes! I’ve been a fan of his for years, and the album has been preordered. I listened to three of the songs last week and I can’t wait to receive this one.
Did you know that if you preorder albums on Amazon, you will generally receive the digital version the day of, or sometimes the day before, the album’s release? I order 95% of my music from Amazon. I’m still a bit old school and love CDs (even though my car doesn’t even play CDs anymore.)
Several of the links are affiliate links. I’ve not been asked to post about this, and if you happen to purchase one of the mentioned albums (I highly recommend this), then I may receive a small compensation. All opinions are my own. And I hope you love music, in general.
What are you listening to these days?
