Looking Ahead: A Release Calendar of Upcoming Albums in 2024

2023 may have featured massive releases from artists such as Taylor Swift (Taylor’s Versions of Speak Now and 1989), Drake (For All the Dogs and its Scary Hours edition), Bad Bunny (Nadie Sabe Lo Que Va a Pasar Mañana), Nicki Minaj (Pink Friday 2), Morgan Wallen (One Thing at a Time) and many others, but 2024 is shaping up to be a strong year as well.

Albums scheduled for release include Dua Lipa’s Radical Optimism, and more from Lenny Kravitz, to Sheryl Crow and many others. Among them as well is the Ye (formerly known as Kanye West) and Ty Dolla $ign’s three-volume collab Vultures.

Plus, who can forget some of the biggest album announcements so far this year, including Swift’s big reveal? The pop superstar announced her 11th studio set, The Tortured Poets Department, while accepting the best pop vocal album Grammy for Midnights — her lucky No. 13 Grammy at that! — would arrive April 19. But she wasn’t the only superstar to take advantage of a big stage to announce a new project. Beyoncé revealed during her Verizon Super Bowl 2024 ad that new music was coming, then made her album announcement and dropped two singles within minutes. Cowboy Carter eventually made its big debut March 29.

Though projects are announced, they’re sometimes delayed for various reasons (Ye and Ty’s Vultures Vols. 2 and 3, for example), or even announced just days in advance, so keeping track of when artists’ albums are coming can be difficult. To make it easier for fans, we’ve compiled this release calendar so the biggest and most anticipated releases won’t be missed when release dates come and go.

The list is organized chronologically by month and week, and includes genres from pop, hip-hop, rock, K-pop, Latin, country and beyond. Keep reading for our running calendar of the major album releases coming in 2024.
