Also due Friday is Paolo Nutini's forthcoming record Last Night In The Bittersweet. If his name sounds familiar to millennials, that's probably because his song New Shoes took over the airwaves back in 2006, and we're still not mad about it.

  • Shinedown – Planet Zero

Then there's Shinedown, who is set to drop their seventh studio album Planet Zero on Friday. The album's release date was originally set for April 22, but the band had to push it back due to a delay in CD and vinyl production.

The album will include the record's previously released title track, Planet Zero.

Singles of the week: Cardi B, Bazzi, and j-hope

On the same day, Bazzi is set to release a new single off his sophomore album. The song is titled Miss America.

Additionally, j-hope of BTS fame is expected to drop a solo track called MORE on Friday, too.
