Tasha Cobbs Leonard

Tasha Cobss Leonard/ ‘HYMNS’/ Motown Gospel

Grammy, Billboard Music, Stellar, and Dove Award-winning musician and songwriter Tasha Cobbs Leonard readies the release of her forthcoming album Hymns, out October 7 via Motown Gospel.

Earlier this year in Chicago, Cobbs Leonard hosted a live album recording in the presence of friends, family, and fans. The new LP is a close one to the musician's heart, as it consists mostly of hymns and church standards she grew up listening to, but now reimagined for a new generation. Hymns features a number of guests that help elevate the album as one of the must-hear gospel projects of the year.

Say She She

Say She She/ ‘Prism’/ Karma Chief Records

Say She She — the New York trio comprised of Piya Malik (staple El Michels Affair feature, and former backing singer for Chicano Batman), Sabrina Mileo Cunningham and Nya Gazelle Brown — will release 'Prism,' the group’s forthcoming debut album on Karma Chief Records (a division of Colemine) out October 7. Named as a silent nod to Nile Rodgers (C’est chi-chi!: It's Chic!”), Say She She has quickly broken out as a band to watch in 2022, their show-stopping three-part harmonies and throw down on the dance floor attitude earning significant attention from KCRW, the BBC, Gilles Peterson’s WorldWide FM, a key placement in the trailer for Lena Dunham's upcoming movie Sharp Stick and much more.

Will Sheff/ ‘Nothing Special’/ ATO Records

Will Sheff — known for leading the critically acclaimed indie-rock stalwarts Okkervil River across nine beloved albums — announces Nothing Special, his debut solo album set for release on October 7 via ATO Records. 

While Sheff acknowledges that the album’s title opens him up to some cheap digs from music writers, Nothing Special is not mere self-deprecation: It’s a record that wrestles with the dream of rock and roll exceptionalism, and the realignment of values necessary to move past youthful delusion and give your day-to-day life a more mature sense of meaning and hope.
