Coming to Record Stores Near You: MuuMuse’s Most Anticipated for 2010…Part Two. One just wasn’t enough. A little while after posting my initial “Most Anticipated” list for 2010 (read: approximately three seconds), I realized that I had left out far too many important upcoming releases that merit an equal amount of attention. Let’s keep it going with another installment then! Christina Aguilera, Bionic (Fourth studio album) What it is: From WWII to the post-apocalypse, Christina’s upcoming reinvention in sight and sound is poised to raise the bar in pop next year. Expected shelf date: March 2010. Confirmed tracks: “You Lost Me,” “Monday Morning” Production by: Goldfrapp, Ladytron, Sia, Le Tigre, M.I.A, Sam Endicott, Diplo & Switch, Linda Perry, Tricky Stewart What we know: Loads. Every one of the producers and writers for the new album has been absolutely raving about their work with Christina. Tricky Stewart told Vibe that “She did things that sheâ€™s never necessarily heard on the radio.” Ladytron cannot seem to sing higher praises of Christina’s taste in music and talent in the studio. Sia’s called the songs they’ve wrote together “classical music beautiful” and “sad and awesome.” As far as what I personally know from my sources (such a cock tease!), it’s all sounding quite good. MuuMuse hopes to hear: A shocking, next-level FutureSound set to knock Gaga down a peg or two. Goldfrapp, Head First (Fifth studio album) What it is: The new dawn of another era in Goldfrapp. Expected shelf date: March 23, 2010. Confirmed tracks: “Rocket” Production by: Goldfrapp What we know: From their official site, courtesy of Alison: “this album is very different from the last, but i hope you enjoy it just as much for different reasons. iâ€™m really looking forward to playing the new songs live as a lot of them are so up and jubilant. even the revenge songs are kind of joyous! its gonna be a blast!” MuuMuse hopes to hear: Whatever they’ve got to offer. Who dislikes any of the Goldfrapp albums, honestly? Sia, We Are Born (Fifth studio album) What it is: The spunky follow-up to 2008′s Some People Have Real Problems, helmed by the producer behind Lily Allen‘s fabulous It’s Not Me, It’s You. Expected shelf date: April 2010. Confirmed tracks: “You’ve Changed,” “Clap Your Hands” Production by: Greg Kurstin What we know: The album is basically complete, and a new single will be released in the first quarter of 2010. It’s also full of happy, upbeat sounds a la “You’ve Changed,” which you can download at MuuMuse and “Clap Your Hands,” which has been performed live during her Australian tour. MuuMuse hopes to hear: A brighter, poppier Sia with more hooks and melodies than ever before. Nicki Minaj, TBA (Debut album) What it is: After creating a handful of mixtapes and lending verses on literally everyone’s songs, Minaj will finally roll out her debut as one of the most promising female rappers since Lil’ Kim. Expected shelf date: 1Q 2010. Confirmed tracks: None. Production by: Unknown. What we know: It will be bossy, braggy, and full of Harajuku Barbie style. As the only female rapper on Young Money Entertainment, it will undoubtedly feature everyone from Drake to Lil’ Wayne. MuuMuse hopes to hear: “Itty Bitty Piggy,” as well as more references to signing boobs and ‘poppin’ that pussy on his Suzuki so crazy kooky in them Daisy Dukies. Janet Jackson, TBA (Eleventh studio album) What it is: Returning to her original label A&M Records, Janet’s follow-up to 2008′s Discipline is a top priority release to send Jackson back to the top of the charts. Expected shelf date: 2Q 2010. Confirmed tracks: None yet, aside from the possible inclusion of “Make Me.” Production by: According to the NY Daily News, Rodney “Darkchild” Jerkins. What we know: During her interview with Robin Roberts for ABC, Janet spoke a bit about her new material: “So far I’ve kept it light, but I’m sure it’s going to have its moments of getting a little heavy, a little deeper, lyrically speaking. I need a little bit of escapism right now…something that’s fun to listen to.” MuuMuse hopes to hear: The classic Janet formula–two or three solid club bangers and a bunch of slinkier grooves a la “When We Oooo” and “That’s The Way Love Goes.” I’m also expecting some darker work and hopeful balladry, given the hardships she’s had to face over the past few months. Mike What else has your source said about the Aguilera album? I’m intrigued. anonymous Roisin Murphy http://www.ademwithane.com/ Adem With An E Looking forward to the X-Tina effort, though I still have my reservations about the woman herself – that last album left a very bad taste in my mouth after being a fan of hers for quite some time. And yes; Roisin Roisin Roisin. http://www.muumuse.com Bradley Stern Yes. I’ve just as quickly realized a third installment is in order. RJ rooootflmao http://myvertigo73.blogspot.com FND Cant wait for Christina’s. What Sia said really perked my interest. Loved Back To Basics, tho I seriously think with proper editing, she didnt need two CDs on that one. Love love love “Save Me From Myself”. Just read that Goldfrapp’s also a lesbian! Yay to fierce gay musicians!! http://fabtasticmusic.blogspot.com Aaron Christina? I’d love to hear a sophisticated, clever, Fever-esque electropop album! Goldfrapp? Supernature part Two! Janet? I’d like to hear one of two things. A modern take on the 80′s tracks – Like Rhythm Nation in the 21st century…Or a huge, Together Again, classy, sophisticated, glorious, fun, dance-pop album! http://www.muumuse.com Bradley Stern Love all three ideas! GAh wasnt 20 Y.O a modern take on her 80′s tracks? i really cant wait for janets new album. i liked Discipline, well at least the Darkchild and jermain Dupri produced portion of the album so i cant wait for new stuff. i hoping for her to move away from all those racy lyrics that started with Damita Jo and do something more relevant at least lyrically and really amp up the dance moves to show the kids how its done. http://www.lolsam.com lolsam Don’t forget about Nadine in the third installment! (I mean, I’m just assuming you’re anticipating that one, too.) Andrew Oh i cannot wait for the new Goldfrapp and Xtina albums and you kind of forgot to mention the new Sophie Ellis-Bextor album. That is the one i am most excited for. http://www.sheenabeaston.com/ Sheena Beaston Aguilera’s album is now definitely titled, Bionic.
