Gallery: Who’s Releasing Records In October? (ET Canada)
Alert: Mimi is about to take over the pop culture landscape. On September 29, she released her sensational memoir, ‘The Meaning of Mariah Carey’. And on October 2, she’s going to release ‘The Rarities’. It’s a retrospective of her 30 years as a pop icon. And this isn’t just a compilation — this is previously unreleased recordings from the breadth of her career. And! There’s a second disc with her 1996 “Daydream” world tour-era performance at the Tokyo Dome. The album's first single, “Save the Day”, is based on an old, unfinished song. “I started writing this years ago,” Mariah said in a statement. “The message rings true now more than ever.” Jermaine Dupri produced the track, which samples the Fugees 1996 hit cover of “Killing Me Softly”. (Here. For. It.) ‘The Rarities’ is part of #MC30, an ongoing celebration of the 30th anniversary of Carey’s debut album.
The late Tragically Hip frontman recorded these 10 songs in the summer of 2017. ’Away is Mine’, out October 16, is a double album featuring electric and acoustic versions of each song. This is the Canadian icon’s final solo recording. “This won’t be his last release but these are the final 10 songs Gord sang before he passed away,” his brother Patrick Downie said in a statement. “The last time he ever sang into a mic. That’s pretty special to us.”
The Boss got his nickname in the ‘70s from the E Street Band because he used to make sure he and the band got paid. He doesn’t like the nickname. So we’re going to call him Bruce-y-o today and see if it catches on. Maybe he’ll love it. Maybe you’ll love his new record ‘Letter to You’, out October 23, which features the single/title track “Letter To You”. This song has that warm Hammond organ sound you’re going to want to wrap yourself in all season long.
Jisoo! Jennie! Rosé! Lisa! The South Korean girl group phenomena will release their debut Korean-language album on October 2. They’ve just announced on social media that the next single will be “Lovesick Girls”. It’s their third single from the record, following “How You Like That” and “Ice Cream”, featuring Selena Gomez. The album is called ‘The Album’, so ask for it by name.
Your eyes are not deceiving you. This is their second record of the year. And it’s only October. Who knows how much more material Born Ruffians will drop before the year’s end? (It’s a trick question: This year will never end.) To recap: This Toronto indie band unleashed their seventh record, ‘Juice’, on April 3. Now we’re onto ‘Squeeze’, the newest new one, which drops October 2. The latest single, “Waylaid” features Vancouver singer/songwriter Hannah Georgas.
The four-time Grammy winner will launch his new record, ‘Love Goes’, with a pay-per-view performance live from Abbey Road Studios on October 30, which is conveniently also the release date for their third album. This is the followup to 2017's 'The Thrill Of It All’ and includes the lead single “Diamonds”.
Sam Roberts Band
What the world needs now is Sam Roberts, sweet Sam Roberts. He’s the only thing that there’s just too little of. He’s like the Paul Rudd of Canadian rock. Luckily, Sam Roberts Band is here to meet the moment with the release of ‘All of Us’ on October 16. This is the Montreal outfit’s first release since 2016 and it includes the banger “I Like the Way You Talk About the Future”.
The 89-year-old pride of Montreal drops ‘The Blues’ on October 2. You know this isn’t Captain Kirk’s first musical foray, right? His 1968 debut, ‘The Transformed Man’, offered spoken-word covers of hits like Dylan’s “Mr. Tambourine Man” and the Beatles’ “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds”. He released a live album in ’77 and in 2011, he released the star-studded, very David Bowie-ish ‘Seeking Major Tom’. And then there was his 2018 Christmas album, ‘Shatner Claus’, featuring Iggy Pop. These records are more than stunts or vanity projects. These records serve to expand the boundaries of the cultural canon. Listen to his version of “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds” and tell me T. J. Hooker is not an artist. ‘The Blues’ is (spoiler alert) a blues record. It features country star Brad Paisley, Steely Dan guitarist Jeff “Skunk” Baxter, Deep Purple’s Ritchie Blackmore, and Canned Heat, among many others. It includes new versions of blues chestnuts like “Sweet Home Chicago”, “I Put a Spell on You”, “I Can’t Quit You Baby”, “Crossroads”, and “Born Under a Bad Sign”.
Truth bomb: His real name is Afie Jurvanen, which is Finnish. This Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter was born in Toronto and raised in Barrie. His stage name is not SEO-friendly but the name of his new album is awesome: ‘Sad Hunk’. It’s out October 9.
The timeless, Grammy-winning new wave icon is backed by a jazz ensemble dubbed Le Quintette Saint Germain on 'Hey Clockface', out October 30. Mr. Diana Krall serves up a cover of Fats Waller’s “How Can You Face Me?” and the title track, which is about a fight against the passage of time.
"Torn" was originally written by Scott Cutler, Anne Preven, and Phil Thornalley in 1993. It was recorded in Danish by singer Lis Sørensen. Imbruglia worked with Thornalley in 1997 to cover the song for her debut studio album Left of the Middle. Her version became a worldwide hit and received a Grammy nomination, losing to Celine Dion's "My Heart Will Go On".
