Next Week in Music | May 11-17 • The Long List: 250 Releases On The Way (& 1 That Isn’t)

One of these albums does not exist. I dare you to figure out which one it is.


One of these things is not like the others. Because it doesn’t exist. Just to make this post a little more interesting (he wrote hopefully), I added a twist this week: Somewhere in this crazy-long list of the 250 upcoming albums, EPs and singles coming out this week, there’s one entry I totally made up. The first person to find it and let me know via social media shall officially be known as Musicus Geekus Maximus for the duration of the week. So stop reading and start … um, reading. One last thing: As always, don’t blame me if anything below changes at the last minute:
