Towards the end of every year, we struggle as a team to organize and remember all the beautiful records that came out in the past 365 days. In a world where each week we're bombarded with singles, we thought it would be good to help ourselves and you our readers by organizing and listening all of the exciting upcoming albums and keep track of what happened in the music industry.
It's the first time we're doing this, but we hope this selection of great records to be stoked about in 2023 is useful.
If you have a suggestion, just send us email via the contact form or drop an Instagram DM.
Additionally, there are albums that are covered in uncertainty, ones that we are eager to see, and the possibility of their release is unclear. We all hope to see a new Frank Ocean, but who knows? You'll find those at the bottom of the list. Feel free to tip us any useful info, if you've got such!
