A new year is here which means that we can now look forward to a whole year's worth of memories and what is going to be soundtracking them? Plenty of music is going to be released this year and we think that it's going to be a much stronger year than 2023. Here are the albums that we're looking forward to in 2024, with some of these already confirmed and a few off guesses in there too. Hopefully, we've made all the right calls.


FKA Twigs

In a recent Instagram post, FKA Twigs confirmed that she had been working on her latest album throughout 2023. Who knows what shape it'll take whether it'll be similar to 2022's 'Caprisongs', 2019's 'Magdalene' or something completely different from an artist who is constantly in her own lane. 



Dua Lipa

Dua Lipa's single 'Houdini' kick started her latest era and we can expect her new album to land this year. The single was produced by Kevin Parker of Tame Impala which gives us some key clues to where Dua might be heading next as we can expect songs that tread the line between pop, psych and dance. 



MGMT - Loss of Life

MGMT have announced that their new album 'Loss Of Life' will be released on the 23rd February. It has been a long time coming from the indie icons and the first single 'Mother Nature' was a promising start to their latest chapter that even featured some BritPop elements.




Whether or not we will get a Clairo album this year is up for debate because these things can take a while. But, she has shared multiple images from the studio on Instagram as well as the odd cryptic post relating to this year so it feels as though her third album is well on the way.




The good old-fashioned social media wipe has taken place on all of Justice's channels ahead of their album this year. They've released a small teaser and we can expect new music soon. The dance music behemoths will have our feet moving all year as they also head off on tour across the world.

Vampire Weekend

Another artist who has teased through Instagram, Vampire Weekend confirmed that their new album is done around the time that their return was confirmed with a slot at this year's Primavera Sound. The band occupy a unique space in indie music and it'll be interesting to hear what they've come up with now.




This is the first one that is mostly just a guess but wouldn't it be great for HAIM to return in 2024? They hit a new height in 2023 when they headlined London's All Points East and it'll be three years since WIMPIII, so a return is surely not too far away.



Yard Act - Where's My Utopia?

Set to be released on March 1st, Yard Act's second album is highly-anticipated. Their debut album, 2022's 'The Overload' was one of the surprise packages of the year, catapulting the band to a Mercury Prize nomination. Now it seems their post-punk sound will entwine with dance music akin to The Rapture to give them a different edge.

Wolf Alice

It has been too long since Wolf Alice were active, or at least it feels like ages despite their last album coming out in 2021. The indie legends are one of the best British bands around at the moment and if they could release an album in 2024 that would make the year a lot better. 



Confidence Man

ConMan 3 is on the way, as confirmed by the Australian duo on social media. The album will probably have a similar feeling to their recent singles 'Now U Do' and 'Firebreak' which have contained so much energy and plenty of hooks for us to enjoy this year. There's no release date yet so keep your eyes peeled on this one. 



Ariana Grande

The Ariana Grande stans are going wild as she has been teasing them that her new era is incredibly close. It is said that her new music could land within the next few weeks and her album would undoubtedly be one of the biggest releases of the year. 



The Internet

A surprise Instagram post the other day confirmed that The Internet were back in the studio, the group who include Syd, Steve Lacy, Matt Martians, Patrick Paige II and Christopher Smith. A bit of a super-group, it is about time we heard from them again after they've enjoyed recent solo success.



Future Islands - People Who Aren't There Anymore

Always an emotional experience, Future Islands pull no punches with their brand of synth pop. Their latest album 'People Who Aren't There Anymore' will be released on January 26th and is set to be one of their best records to date based off of the singles they've released so far.

The Last Dinner Party - Prelude To Ecstasy

An incredibly exciting debut, The Last Dinner Party have had a rise akin to Wet Leg and are set to release their debut album after only a handful of singles. Donning their Victorian aesthetic, the band are certainly trying to define their own style which could make this record, out February 2nd, one of the best debuts of the year.

Declan McKenna - What Happened to the Beach?

Declan McKenna may be best known for 'Brazil' but that does a disservice to his wider catalogue. His first two albums are packed full of gems and that is likely to continue throughut 'What Happened to the Beach?' which is scheduled to release on February 9th.

Billie Eilish

Billie Eilish has been teasing her next album and we can't wait to see what she ends up doing next. She still had a successful 2023 by having one of the best songs on the Barbie soundtrack, but an album in 2024 would be a huge moment.
