As with most any new year, expect lots of new music to be released. Billboard (via Yahoo! News) provide a month-by-month breakdown for just the first quarter of 2008. Here’s a short form of that list:

  • Jan: Willie Nelson, Sarah Brightman, Motel.

  • Feb: Lil Wayne, Nas, Ja Rule, Nicole Scherzinger, Sheryl Crow, Lenny Kravitz, Anthony Hamilton, Jack Johnson, Dolly Parton, Simple Plan, Rick Ross, Janet Jackson, Erykah Badu, Goldfrapp.
  • Mar: Ashlee Simpson, The Offspring, Gavin DeGraw, Estelle, Alan Jackson, Bauhaus, Michael McDonald, Moby, Leona Lewis, Panic! at the Disco.

I’m looking forwards to Lenny Kravitz, Erykah Badu, The Offspring and Moby. For some artists such as Janet Jackson, this could be a comeback year.
