Radio Bobby: Top 5 New Music Releases (1/27)

Lana Del Ray1.  “Once Upon a Dream” by Lana Del Ray (from Maleficent) – (soundtrack) After debuting stateside a couple years back and then tackling last year’s The Great Gatsby (notably with “Young and Beautiful”), Lana Del Ray moves on to lend her beautiful, harrowing voice to another soundtrack – for Disney’s upcoming Maleficent.  “Once Upon a Dream” receives a refreshing twist that only adds to excitement in the buildup to Angelina Jolie’s villainous debut.

2.  “Invisible” by Hunter Hayes – (country) An empowering and inspiring anti-bullying song from one of country music’s brightest rising stars.

3.  “Clockwork” by Easton Corbin – (country) A contemporary country crossover track that feels equal parts country and pop.  It’s very catchy and Corbin’s phrasing is spot-on!

4.  “I Want It All” by Karmin – (pop) “…one more night with you…” That’s what you get with Karmin from the forthcoming album.  It’s catchy, bubbly pop.

5.  “I Hold On” by Dierks Bentley – (country) Bentley has a hit for sure with “I Hold On.” Interestingly enough, though this sounds like a cliché country tune, but it’ll probably grow on me (and you) with more plays and may be a surprise finisher at the end of the year.  A solid vocal effort and a song that will definitely sound amazing against a sunset in summer.
