All of these albums are available to listen to right now, just click on the album title and you'll be listening to some incredible new tunes in no time at all (as long as you're set up as a hoopla user)!

Love You to Death by Tegan and Sara

Identical twin sisters Tegan and Sara have steadily evolved from their Canadian indie/acoustic roots to to mainstream pop during the 17 years they have been producing albums. Many people first heard them in 2014 when they partnered with The Lonely Island to sing "Everything is Awesome", the theme song for the Lego Movie. Tegan and Sara have partnered with Sia and Adele collaborator and producer Greg Kurstin to create their eighth and latest album, released just earlier this month on June 3.

New Music out June 3, 2016

I'm really excited to listen to some of the new albums out today. We get a brand new album by the master of songwriting, Paul Simon, the psychedelic partnering of Less Claypool and Sean Lennon, some great indie rock from Xenia Rubinos (new to me, but really ear-catching!), Spearhead's newest, and so much more! Check out our favorites below and check back every Friday for new music.

Barbara, Barbara, We Face A Shining Future by Underworld

This is electronic dance pioneer Underworld’s first new studio album since 2010, and it’s an elegant creation that incorporates modern flourishes along with the traditional techno beats we’ve come to expect from this group. I was a huge fan of their 2000 live album “Everything, Everything,” which is exclusively a progressive house album, with a collection of songs that will wake you up without the aid of caffeine. This album has some softer songs, incorporating guitar and piano, and more simple synth lines.

Prince, 1958-2016

The world lost another star today. Only 57 years old, few artists have created a body of work as rich and varied as Prince. Most of us came to know him when his sixth album, Purple Rain, was released in 1984. We got ready for the turn of the millenium partying like it was 1999. Embraced paisley and raspberry berets, and loved it when others covered his songs - remember Sinead O'Connor's version of Nothing Compares To U?

April's Newest Hot Music

It's been a while since we highlighted new music, but never fear, we're adding new titles every week! Check out some of the latest you can listen to right now - our online music is always free (and we'll never charge you a late fee), and there's never any wait to listen to it. Here are some of the hotest titles that just came out last Friday, April 15:

This Is What The Truth Feels Like by Gwen Stefani

Perhaps you were first introduced to Ms. Stefani when she fronted the ska band No Doubt, or maybe it was when she joined the popular television show, The Voice as a judge (and most recently as a vocal coach).

New Music - Friday, March 18, 2016

Every week new music comes out, whether we announce it here or not! This week there are some great new tunes to listen to, whatever style of music you enjoy. I've also included a couple in the list below that came out early this year, but I haven't talked about new music in a while and wanted to make sure you didn't miss them. You can always stay on top of the latest music here. Hopeyou have a great weekend!

Top music albums you can listen to NOW

Did you know you can enjoy hot new music right now? We have tons of hot new content available to stream and download (within the app) with no waiting, and no possibility of late fees. In the last 30 days (February 15-March 15, 2015) the following titles were borrowed the most from our online music collection:

  1. 2016 Grammy Nominees
  2. Hamilton (Original Broadway Cast Recording)

Dig In Deep by Bonnie Raitt

It's been 25 years since Bonnie Raitt's biggest hits were released - "Something to Talk About" and "I Can't Make You Love Me" from Luck of the Draw. And if you recall and enjoy those hits' sound, then Raitt's newest offering will be just the ticket. Raitt's voice is still in great form - perfectly gravelly and raspy. Her guitar struts through the more upbeat songs and swings through the slower ones.
