Fall Music Preview 2020

This has been the most devastating year in music history, and we all know why: COVID-19.

It has shut down venues and festivals; artists are struggling without vital touring revenue, and many album releases have been delayed and rescheduled. Worst still, we’ve lost so many great artists in the past year (see R.I.P. 2020).

Things have not gotten back to normal. In fact, no one can predict if or when we’ll see anything remotely normal in the future.

At least for the time being, most albums and reissues are back on track. Here’s what’s scheduled for this fall, from Sept. 22 to Dec. 21.
