Early into 2022 and if for no other reason than The Weeknd’s excellent new album, dawn fm, it is better than 2021. But there is more. Eight songs have made it onto my Best Of 2022 already, and while two are from Abel, and one is a demo from PJ Harvey, the other five go from gay country returning Lavender Country to Noel returning and at his best since Oasis new single.
While albums are still a little slow, hot new singles are dropping like crazy. I reviewed 50 last week alone. Tours are being set up for 22 and makegoods from 20 and 21 are filling in the blanks at what should be a busy, busy year.
And we don’t even know about Governors Ball yet!
