Album release dates 2021

Need something to look forward to? Browse our calendar of album release dates and get excited about the records due to drop in 2021. With the worst year in living memory out the way, we can hopefully look forward to at least half a year which is back to normal in 2021. With a lot of record release dates moving back due to COVID, it’s hard to be absolute about anything, but to the best of our knowledge these are the albums that will be released in 2021. Will we finally get a new Cardi B album? Will Rihanna stop making bras long enough to drop R9? Did Lorde make the follow-up to Melodrama on the plains of Antarctica? Here’s what we know so far about the year’s upcoming releases.
