The Chainsmokers (‘Memories…Do Not Open’) spotlights new releases arriving April 7, 2017. Joey Bada$$ and Father John Misty also drop new albums.
Ah, the first music release date in April 2017 – Friday, April 7! Overall, April opens with a nice assortment of new albums. The problem is, unless Kendrick Lamar drops his new album on April 7, there isn’t a comparable effort to Ed Sheeran (÷), which kicked off March 2017. Still, The Chainsmokers are “kind of a big deal” (Memories…Do Not Open). After all, Drew and Alex have had a number of hits, going back to 2015.
