Ten Intriguing Albums Expected For 2012

[photogallerylink id=111587 align=left]Before we get to it, I think we owe 2011 a big thank you for another solid year in music.

Artists like The Black Keys, Florence + the Machine, and Cage the Elephant proved they have staying power. Newbies like Foster the People and Tune-Yards refreshed our palates. And let’s not forget reunions from Jane’s Addiction and Ben Folds Five who rewarded our patience.

As we turn the page and set our eyes on 2012, some of the biggest names in rock music from generations now and then are slated to release new albums. No one likes a tease, but I can’t help myself with names like The Killers, Bruce Springsteen, and Green Day making this year’s list.  Oh, and by the way, none of them claimed our number one spot.

10. Bruce Springsteen
An announcement only days old, Springsteen’s fan sites have been speculating about this one for weeks. The Boss is notorious for keeping his writing and recording agenda very tight-lipped, but made it official this fall, announcing not only a tour to begin next summer, but that a Springsteen release is almost ready, and will drop in the new year. The only question remaining is, what does Bruce plan to do to fill those big shiny leather shows left behind by the great Clarence Clemons (Clemons passed away in June of 2011)? E-street guitarist Nils Lofrgen has said he “Hasn’t a clue,” nor does anyone else in the band, apparently. Yet.
