The Summer Drought Is Almost Over: Fall Music Preview

Last Summer I wrote about how there was nothing going on in the music world. It turns out that I may have been overreacting then, because the Summer of 2012 has been five times as barren. Seriously, I haven't been excited about an album release in months and months, and (honestly) it probably shows on this blog.

But pop music is not dead! In fact, the Summer was just the calm before the storm because there is a tidal wave of excellent pop releases coming our way and I, for one, am both excited and relieved. Here's a rundown. Did I miss any?

Agnes - Veritas (Sept. 5) The previews to this sound immense. Lots of Tony Nilsson is always good.

Carly Rae Jepsen - Kiss (Sept. 18) Bound to be a 2012 pop classic.

The Killers - Battle Born (Sept. 18) I'm really taken with their new single. Hopefully the album's as good.

Alphabeat - Express Non-Stop (Sept. 24) These guys never disappoint.

No Doubt - Push & Shove (Sept. 25) The previews sound promising, even if the singles have been somewhat underwhelming. Still, I've been waiting for this for years.

Dragonette - Bodyparts (Sept. 25) Another pop band that never disappoints. The previews sound great.

Melody Club - Let's Celebrate (Sept. 28) I'm a little disappointed that we're not getting a new studio album from them, but it'll be nice to get this greatest hits and I'm excited for the new track.

Muse - The 2nd Law (Oct. 2) I want another song like Survival!

Mika - The Origin Of Love (Oct. 8) New single Celebrate has me very excited. Here's hoping the title track is a cover of the epic Hedwig & The Angry Inch anthem.

Loreen - Healed (Oct. ) The long-awaited debut is finally released! (That is, if it doesn't get pushed back again)

Robbie Williams - Take The Crown (Nov. 5) Always excited for new Robbie, and this is supposedly a very big "pop" album.

One Direction - Take Me Home (Nov. 12) Their debut was such a pleasant surprise. I can't wait until this.

Little Mix - TBD (Nov. 19)

Olly Murs - TBD (Nov. 26)

The Veronicas - Life On Mars (?)
Amelia Lily - TBD (?)
Reece Mastin - TBD (?)
Darin - TBD (?)
Private - TBD (?)
The Wanted - TBD (?)
