Next Week in Music | Oct. 29 – Nov. 4, 2018

Everything that's going to rock your little world in the next seven days.

Here are the major album releases, TV appearances, anniversaries and important musical events of the next seven days. Mark your calendars and get in on some pre-order action — but don’t blame me if things change at the last minute:


Bob Dylan | More Blood, More Tracks: The Bootleg Series Vol. 14
Zimmy serves up six discs that document the complete sessions of his divorce album Blood on the Tracks, including outtakes, false starts and studio banter. I’m in.

Metallica | … And Justice for All 30th Anniversary Expanded Edition
The band’s fourth album — which spawned their first big single One — gets the deluxe treatment with extra discs of demos, live recordings, DVDs and moe.

Rosanne Cash | She Remembers Everything
And everyone — the guest list here includes Elvis Costello, Kris Kristofferson, Sam Phillips and Colin Meloy.

Rodney Crowell | Christmas Everywhere
The Houston Kid goes to the North Pole.

Marianne Faithfull | Negative Capability
Faithfull’s latest includes a new number with Nick Cave and revamps of As Tears Go By, It’s All Over Now, Baby Blue and Witches’ Song.

The Mavericks | Hey! Merry Christmas!
Hey! Shouldn’t that be Merry Tex-Mexmas?

JD McPherson | Socks
Since this is a holiday album, I presume the title is a reference to the worst Christmas present anyone can get.

Pistol Annies | Interstate Gospel
Wow, time flies — this will be Miranda Lambert, Angaleena Presley and Ashley Monroe‘s first album together in five years.

The Prodigy | No Tourists
Will they change their pitch up? Come back to find out.

Tenacious D | Post-Apocalypto
Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl returns to help Jables and Kage save rock — or whatever Jack Black and Kyle Gass‘s shtik is this time around.
