Most new music comes out on Tuesdays (it's a U.S. record business tradition), and each week we cull through the mountain of new releases to bring you some of the best from across different genres. Click below, or find them in Napster's New Releases section.
Jimmy Eat World, Invented (alternative, rock, pop): Fueled by hit single "My Best Theory," Napster's version of the alt-rock vet's latest includes four bonus tracks: a cover of Wilco's "You and I", an acoustic version of "Coffee and Cigarettes," a cover of Superchunk's "Precision Auto," and a demo of "Anais."
Donell Jones, Lyrics (R&B): When not writing hits for artists like Usher and Brownstone, Donnell Jones takes care of business under his own name, too. In addition to single "Love Like This," check Napster's version for three exclusive bonus tracks: "Menage à Trois," "Don't Trip," and an acoustic mix of "All About the Sex."
Kenny Chesney, Hemingway's Whiskey (country): After a busy summer releasing his big 3D concert movie and working on the ESPN football documentary The Boys of Fall, Chesney's latest is named after a Guy Clark song included on the album. Chesney says the country legend was his main inspiration for this set.
Lil Wayne, I Am Not a Human Being (hip-hop/rap): The album (not the artist) sees an early release via digital music services, with the physical CD slated for release next month. Featuring the singles "Right Above It" and "I'm Single," Weezy's latest also features Drake, Nicki Minaj, and Jay Sean.
Neil Young, Le Noise (rock): The legendary singer-songwriter teamed with legendary producer Daniel Lanois (Brian Eno, U2, Bob Dylan) for this one, and the result is blowing minds. Young plays an experimental Lanois guitar with added effects, and the sound is not unlike his work on the 1996 movie Dead Man.
Gucci Mane, The Appeal: Georgia's Most Wanted (hip-hop/rap): Promising to do better after serving time for a parole violation, the Georgia rapper keeps his word by releasing his finest work to date. Includes "Gucci Time" (featuring Swizz Beatz) and also features Pharrell, Bun B, Wyclef Jean and Nicki Minaj.
