Well, friends, here we are: Our first week of 2014! Ahead is another year full of exciting new music to soundtrack every awaiting adventure of the next 12 months. And boy, does it look promising.
We spent last year anticipating albums like Justin Timberlake's in early 2013 and Eminem at the tail end of the year, but we still scribbled whatever details we could about the records set to define 2014. Rock, pop and R&B veterans like Foo Fighters, Mariah Carey and Kylie Minogue will make their long-awaited comebacks, while Foxes and other hotly-tipped newcomers are expected to make a splash along with today's pop stars (Taylor! 1D! Ariana! SNSD!) poised to bang out another LP choked full of smash singles.
Or, as last year proved, someone might pull a Beyonce and unleash a surprise album (or visual album) on all of us. But we gathered up all the must-know facts on our 41 most-anticipated albums, in alphabetical order, for the coming year.
Scroll through and check back to Fuse daily for updates, interviews and loads of fun stuff with these acts and many more throughout 2014.
