Releases

Keeping up to date with new music can be quite a task. With an ever-rising amount of artists out there crafting and releasing amazing albums each week, along with the countless compilations and soundtracks that make their way onto the shelves, you can be forgiven for being somewhat overwhelmed by it all.

That’s where The Industry Observer steps in. We’ve keeping an eye on all the new releases from all the major and independent labels, and compiling a constant schedule that helps you keep track of what’s coming out, when it’s coming, and who’s releasing it.
