10 Most Anticipated Albums of 2014

From critically acclaimed rappers to beloved indie artists to pop stars and stadium-filling rock bands, 2014 promises to deliver a cornucopia of new albums that fans have been eagerly waiting for. Here’s a list of 10 of the most anticipated albums set to be released in 2014.

10. Morning Phase, Beck

Alternative songwriter Beck is set to release Morning Phase, his first record since 2008′s Modern Guilt, at the end of the month. The record is closely related, thematically, to 2002′s Sea Change, being slower and more heavily orchestrated than some of the artist’s other work. The album was recorded in Nashville and Los Angeles, and many of the same musicians who worked on Sea Change also feature on Morning Phase. Expect slow melodic songs rather than the folksy burners Beck was known for at the beginning of his career.
