Next Week in Music | July 1-7 • 75 New Releases Headed Your Way

All the music you'll be adding to your playlist next week. And then some.

It’s going to be a quiet week in the music world. And no wonder: Between Canada Day, the 4th of July and the end of school, millions of North Americans will be enjoying the great outdoors instead of squinting at screens. Fittingly, there are only about 75 albums, EPs and singles being released — about half as many as recent weeks. And there are no big-name, chart-topping artists on that list. So rather than take up more of your time than I already have, I’m just going to list them, and highlight the ones that stand out to me. Mark your calendars and pre-order your favourites — but don’t blame me if things change at the last minute:
