Fall for These New Album Releases!

By Ashleigh, age 13, Lousiana

A lot of artists are releasing their albums this fall. Most artists also are trying to get that hard to reach spot on September 11th. It's a sad and touchy day, and hopefully they'll sell a lot on those days. We need a little picker-upper on that day.

My recommendations: Go buy the new 50 Cent album, Hot Hot Heat, or better yet, Graduation by Kanye West! GO, GO, GO!

Here are the rest of the album releases coming up soon:

September 11

When the first two singles from 50 Cent's twice delayed Curtis album didn't really sell, he went back to the lab and cooked up eight new tracks. With collabos featuring Justin Timberlake, Akon, Mary J. Blige, Robin Thicke, Will.I.Am, Pharrell, Swizz Beatz and Kanye West, 50 says the new album will be a break from his usual G-Unit posse tracks.

Well, Kanye West, he's not worried about taking on 50 with Graduation, which boasts guest spots from T-Pain and Coldplay's Chris Martin!! How sure is he?

Hot Hot Heat will return with their third album, Happiness Ltd. The album features production by Butch Walker (Avril Lavigne) and Rob Cavallo (Green Day). Don't let your happiness be ltd. on Sept 11, ok?? Try to be happy!

September 18

Scottish singer/songwriter KT Tunstall has something "drastic fantastic" for everyone who loved her moody pop 2004 debut Eye to the Telescope, which sold more than 4 million copies worldwide. (P.S. Her new album is called Drastic Fantastic) :]

October 9

It has actually been four years since we last heard from Kid Rock, who has basically abandoned his hip-hop swagger on Rock & Roll Jesus. The album leans on hard-rockers like the first single, "So Hot", and includes a country tune with a dis track! Guess who it's for?? Ex-wife Pam Anderson!

October 16

It's not like Avenged Sevenfold is gonna say their new album of the same name is their heaviest effort yet. Singer M. Shadows described the self-produced follow-up to City of Evil as "the most down-to-the-bone" album they could make, with "no glitz or glamour." [Note : Release date has reportedly been pushed back to October 30.]

October 23

System of a Down lead singer Serj Tankian drops his debut solo album Elect the Dead, which he promises will be full of the hard rock you'd expect, but also something different. "There are a lot of instruments. There are layers of pianos and strings and weird synth stuff. There's a lot of guitars and lots of different affected guitars, heavy guitars ... way too many guitar tracks. It's just a different vibe," he told MTV News.

October 30

R&B singer Chris Brown dishes out album number two with Exclusive, a more mature effort which will feature songs produced by Pharrell, Will.I.Am, and Bryan-Michael Cox. Also returning for his sophomore year is skateboarding rapper Lupe Fiasco with The Cool. He's hoping to avoid the pre-release leak that dogged his debut by keeping information about the album tightly secured until just weeks before its release.

Have a rockin' school year!
