In the world of music, you don’t get much bigger than The Rolling Stones, Cher, and Dolly Parton. With careers spanning decades, each of these acts has cemented their status as an icon of the music industry and a steadfast presence on the charts. Now, they’re all back with new music!
Hackney Diamonds by The Rolling Stones: After an 18-year-long wait, The Rolling Stones will be returning with their new rock album, Hackney Diamonds, out on October 20th. The 12-track album will feature Mick Jagger as lead and backing vocals, Keith Richars on guitar, Ronnie Wood on guitar, and the late Charlie Watts on drums. The lead song for the album was ‘Angry’, which you can already listen to on all streaming services.
Christmas by Cher: After a 10-year ‘hiatus’ from releasing original music – though starring in blockbuster films, going on a world tour, and releasing an album of ABBA covers – Cher is back with her 27th album, simply titled Christmas. This is the first holiday album for Cher, and it’s set to have loads of new Christmas songs, as well as plenty of guests including Stevie Wonder, Tyga, Cyndi Lauper, and the King of Christmas himself, Michael Bublé. The album is out on October 23, and the first single will be ‘DJ Play a Christmas Song’.
Rockstar by Dolly Parton: On November 17, Dolly Parton will return to the charts with her 49th album, Rockstar. The album, which will have 30 tracks, will feature a huge array of other artists including Ringo Star, Elton John, Sheryl Crow, Paul McCartney, Miley Cyrus, P!nk, Sting, and Debbie Harry, to mention but a few. This will be Dolly’s first rock album, and will contain numerous covers. The first single, ‘World on Fire’, was released back in May.
