THE PITCHFORK GUIDE TO UPCOMING RELEASES: SUMMER 2017
From Phoenix and Vince Staples to Lana Del Rey and Radiohead, here’s a big list of records to look forward to in the coming months
Welcome back to the Pitchfork Guide to Upcoming Releases, our seasonal guide to new music. Four times a year, we round up a list of albums, singles, EPs, reissues, and more arriving in the coming months. This installment covers summer 2017, starting with this Friday, June 2. (Please note that release dates may change.) To start things off, we’ve highlighted a few particularly notable releases, including albums by Phoenix, Broken Social Scene, Fleet Foxes, Vince Staples, Lana Del Rey, the War on Drugs, Haim, Radiohead, Grizzly Bear, SZA, and more. For more about the releases we’re most excited for in 2017, check out our feature from the beginning of the year.
Vince Staples returns with his third full-length LP, Big Fish Theory, in June. It marks his fourth project in as many years, and features previously released tracks, “BagBak” and his latest “Big Fish.” Watch the music video for that song here. Earlier this year, he connected the marine theme from his new title with his North American “The Life Aquatic Tour.” The poster featured art inspired by the Wes Anderson-directed cult classic. Staples’ forthcoming album follows his 2016 EP, Prima Donna, and his 2015 sophomore effort, Summertime ’06.
