(ETX Daily Up) – 2022 has been (very) rich with new music releases. Everything makes us believe that 2023 will be as much or even more. Many artists have already announced that they will release new albums in the coming months. Summary of major confirmed album releases.
“TRAP!” By Måneskin
It’s been two years since the Italian group Måneskin won the Eurovision Song Contest with the song “Zitti e buoni”. The quartet is now back with their new album Rush. An aura of mystery surrounds this third work, despite the fact that it contains Måneski’s most recent singles, i.e. “Supermodel”, “I Wanna Be Your Slave” or even “The Loneliest”. In an interview with Variety, bassist Victoria De Angelis said that this album is about experience. “Of course, it’s still us, I think the fans will like it. We put songs on there that were written a few years ago without any outside help.”
Måneski’s film “Rush” is scheduled to be released on January 20.
Gloria by Sam Smith
Sam Smith is back after three years of the famous movie “Love Goes”. The self-identified non-binary British singer-songwriter will soon release her fourth album, Gloria.

This work marks a turning point in Sam Smith’s career, as it is the first time he has been involved in the production and arrangements of one of his records. The singer describes “Gloria” as “emotionally, sexually and spiritually free.” “It was great to be free-singing again with this album. It’s weird that it feels like my first record,” he said in a press release. Sam Smith’s Gloria will be released on January 27.
“My Queen” by Shania Twain
Shania Twain fans had to wait six years after the release of “Now” to discover new music from the country pop veteran. They all came together on Queen of Me, her sixth studio album.

“Higher than the Sky” by Ellie Goulding

For his fifth studio album, “Higher than the Sky”, he surrounded himself with well-known songwriters and producers such as Greg Kurstin, Koz and Jessie Shatkin. Carried by the angry Let It Die, this work was conceived during the pandemic. “There was a palpable gloom in the studio, each passed [ces deux dernières années] different. I think that’s why no one wanted to sit down and talk about the relationship or the drama. This is how this album was born,” he said in his statement.Ellie Goulding’s “Higher than the Sky” will be released on February 3.
“This Is Why” by Paramore
This is definitely one of the most anticipated albums of the year. Paramore will soon release their new studio album, This Is Why, 6 years after After Laughter.

“Memento Mori” by Depeche Mode
The title of Depeche Mode’s fifteenth album, Memento Mori, took on special meaning after the death of Andrew Fletcher, one of the British group’s co-founders, on May 26. Dave Gahan revisited this painful episode in an interview with Rolling Stone. “All songs [de “Memento Mori”] It was written before Fletch died,” he told the trade magazine. “But when something happens, when something like this happens in your life, the songs change: they take on different forms and take on different meanings. It’s different when you read them”. The new opus comes six years after Depeche Mode’s previous album Spirit.

“Did You Know There’s a Tunnel Under Ocean Blvd” by Lana Del Rey
Lana Del Rey’s ninth studio album, Did You Know There’s a Tunnel on Ocean Boulevard? It was even more at risk when a hard drive containing songs from this opus was stolen in October.
