It appears that the stars of pop (pop stars if you will) have aligned to make 2015 one of the most exciting years of music ever. It is known fact here at NSOTPop that the artist who creates an album of the year goes down in history as a pop deity.
Starting from the beginning of the golden age of pop in 2007, these deities include:
Dragonette - Galore (2007)
Ladyhawke - Ladyhawke (2008)
Little Boots - Hands (2009)
Ellie Goulding - Lights (2010)
Lady Gaga - Born This Way (2011)
Marina & The Diamonds - Electra Heart (2012)
Charli XCX - True Romance (2013)
2014… WHO KNOWS?! Except for me... The best album of 2014 is still up in the air but you can leave a comment telling me who you think it should be.
Now that you're well acquainted with the pop pantheon, let me go ahead and drop a bombshell on you.
There is a chance ALL OF THESE ARTISTS WILL RELEASE A NEW ALBUM FOR 2015.
Charli XCX will release her second album Sucker in America in December, but won't be released in the UK until next year and therefore, will only count when it has been released in the artist's home country. Marina and the Diamonds' Froot already has an April release date and Little Boots has got an amazing EP coming out to get you ready for the confirmed album for 2015. Elsewhere, Ellie Goulding has confirmed a new album for 2015. Now the speculation begins. Dragonette have had a sufficient amount of time to record a new album since 2012's Bodyparts and even though Ladyhawke takes forever to make albums, it is completely rational to expect something brilliant after 2012's Anxiety. Lady Gaga is the most worrisome as we could get something utterly shit like that guitar/rock album she's been threatening us with. However, she has stated that a Volume 2 of ARTPOP could come out in the near future and knowing her ability at continuing already amazing album campaigns, this could be the second coming of the Fame Monster!!!!!
Sincerely, there might be so much good music next year that everyone else should just take a break and save it for 2016. Happy holidays!
