Looking ahead: October-November 2021

[sungazer - PERIHELION]

sungazer, PERIHELION, Oct. 11

YouTube musicians Adam Neely and Shawn Crowder finally unveil their debut album after a pair of EPs.

Olivia Newton-John, Physical (Deluxe Edition), Oct. 22

This album was wildly successful at the time, buoyed by a nascent promotional tool called the “music video.” The deluxe edition of Physical includes one of the first video albums produced by a pop artist. Sorry, Beyoncé fans.

Spice Girls, Spice (Deluxe Edition), Oct. 29

In the UK, this deluxe edition of the Girls’ debut album is accompanied by five color vinyl reissues, each featuring a member the group. I’d probably opt for the Mel C one, but I already have this album on LP.

Jason Isbell and 400 Unit, Georgia Blue, Nov. 26

Jason Isbell makes good on his promise to record a cover album of Georgia artists if the run-off election in January 2020 sent a pair of Democrats to the Senate.

Vinyl

Kylie Minogue, Fever, Oct, 15
Sinéad O’Connor, So Far … The Best of Sinéad O’Connor, Oct. 15

National Album Day in the UK looks like Record Store Day Lite from a distance, but this year’s focus on women artists has some nice reissues in the pipeline. Honestly, Fever should just be perpetually available on vinyl. Every special pressing sells out fast and fetches exorbitant prices on Discogs. I have So Far on CD from when it was first released, and it’s an excellent compilation.

Old 97s, Fight Songs, Oct. 29

I would have preferred a vinyl reissue of Satellite Rides, to be honest.
