Music Fanatics Rejoice: The Most Anticipated Albums of 2024 Revealed!

2023 was a delight for fans of music across genres, with over 700 new albums being released over the year. 


Some of the most popular drops included Olivia Rodrigo’s ‘GUTS’, Travis Scott’s ‘Utopia’, and ‘Barbie: The Album’, although it was ‘Midnights’ by Taylor Swift that took home the Grammy for Album of the Year this time. Talk about being spoilt for choice!


Music has also always been magical in its ability to bond people, be it across languages, cultures, or genders. But with so many aspiring singer/songwriters making their way onto digital platforms like Spotify, it’s easy to lose track of popular releases as you wade through the billions of songs available online.


The music frenzy of 2024 has arrived. So now that we’ve over-listened to our favorite hits from last year (or maybe that’s just me), it’s time to look forward to all the new music that is in store for us this year. And there’s a lot of it.


Here are the most eagerly awaited albums of 2024:


TYLA - Tyla


This South African singer rose to fame last year for the hit single ‘Water’, which quickly became not just a TikTok sensation, but also very popular among DJs for their club setlists. The song was responsible for helping Tyla become the youngest South African musician to enter the Billboard Hot 100.


Scheduled for release on March 22, 2024, her debut album will contain 14 tracks, and one of them will even include a guest appearance from Travis Scott.


Act II - Beyoncé


This music sensation is looking to release her eighth studio album in March of this year, as announced in a commercial for American network company Verizon during the Super Bowl. It is expected to include primarily country music.


If you are impatient and can’t wait for this one, you are in luck. The first two singles from the album have already dropped and can be accessed on any platform you would normally listen to music on.


Found Heaven - Conan Gray


With four singles already out and doing amazingly, Conan Gray is dropping his third album on April 5, 2024. The album is preceded by Superache and Kid Krow, both of which did phenomenally, debuting in the top 10 across countries.


Gray is now 25, but he released his first song when he was 17, and quickly shot to fame for his admittedly morose, yet exceptionally relatable lyrics. Teen Vogue has famously called him the ‘pop prince for sad internet teens’.


The album will include 13 tracks.


The Tortured Poets Department - Taylor Swift


When she took the stage to receive her Grammy for Album of the Year, Taylor Swift delighted fans by announcing her 11th studio album which is set to release on April 19, 2024. It is slated to have 16 songs with the bonus track. 


During the first stop of her Eras Tour in Melbourne on February 16, Swift released The Bolter Edition, an alternate version of the album with a new cover and an additional track called The Bolter. Pre-ordering was possible for a brief time on Swift's website.


Moon Music - Coldplay


British band Coldplay have been around since 1997, but they are still one of the most popular musical groups in the world. After a three-year hiatus, they are expected to release their tenth album later this year, although there has been no official announcement yet.


They are also attempting to bring together a million voices across different cities on a song aptly titled One World. Lead vocalist Chris Martin instructed audience members on their tour to either sing the word ‘one’, or hum a C note in unison. This was then recorded in multiple cities across shows.


As always, Coldplay continues to stun with their novel ideas, making this an album that will smash records and quickly rise to fame, much like all their others have.


‘To be named’ - Dua Lipa


While Dua Lipa is yet actually to tell us anything about her third album, fans are excitedly counting the days until the British pop star drops new music. According to Rolling Stone, Tame Impala’s Kevin Parker wrote eight of the eleven tracks on the album. Listeners can look forward to psychedelic, electro-pop-inspired records.


If it’s any indication of what’s to come, her brand new single, Training Season released on February 15th this year, and amassed a whopping 3.4 million listens on its second day on streaming service Spotify.


These aren’t the only releases music lovers have to look forward to this year though. Not only are there hundreds of others who haven’t made the list, but the music industry is also ever-changing and dynamic, and artists may drop their news at any moment. So don’t fret if you can’t see your favorite names on the list. You may still get lucky.


Here’s to another incredible year of music as singers and songwriters continue to make the lives of the Grammy Jury members more and more difficult each time around.
