44 New Tunes For The New Year

Email a Friend
Panda Bear's latest album, 'Panda Bear Meets The Grim Reaper,' is out now.

With 2014 firmly behind us, and all those lists and listicles put to bed, there's not much left to do but look ahead. Already, many 2015 albums have started to trickle out, and more and more tantalizing future releases being announced every day. So, to help sort through this oncoming tidal wave, and give a taste of what we're excited about in the new year, we've culled together a playlist of songs from artists either putting out new music this year -- or rumored to have something out this year (we hope, we hope, we hope!).

So kick back and take a listen to the steam above -- which shuffles up all the songs listed below. Is there a record you're especially pumped for this year? A band or artist you're hoping drops something in 2015? Let us know below in the comments or on Twitter at @Soundcheck!
