Stream this week's new album releases from Joan Jett & The Blackhearts, Justin Timberlake, HAIM, Lorde, and Static Jacks to guarantee a great start to your month.
We caught Joan Jett & The Blackhearts at Riot Fest Chicago last month for a preview of Unvarnished, released today. The release is her 13th studio album since Joan Jett, self released in 1980. Stream the Deluxe version below, check out our photos from Riot Fest, and catch her on a brief tour beginning in NYC tomorrow.
Justin Timberlake dropped part 2 of The 20/20 Experience, which can be streamed and purchased in parts or as The Complete Experience. Justin will be on tour through May of next year with stops in North America and Europe.
After seeing Haim at SXSW, Governors Ball, and Firefly without a full album to listen to once their set came to an end, it's no surprise their debut album has been one of our most anticipated of the fall. Days Are Gone includes favorites we've been hearing all summer ("Forever," "The Wire") as well as a number of new tracks that will soon become favorites, too. Stream the album below and find the sisters on tour through March of next year including stops at Austin City Limits, Treasure Island Music Festival, Life is Beautiful, and Laneway Festival.
16-year old New Zealand native, Lorde, released her debut Pure Heroine after a summer of radio success off "Royals." Lorde is on tour now in NYC and will begin an Australian tour later this month lasting into 2014.
Last but not least, New Jersey's Static Jacks released their sophomore album In Blue this week. Its release comes a week after their album release party at NYC's Studio at Webster Hall and just a couple days after they were added to CMJ's official lineup. In addition to CMJ Music Marathon, you can catch Static Jacks on tour this week.
