Are you bored with your current playlists? Looking for something new to check out this month? We’re here to help. 

Below, you’ll find five of the biggest albums set for release in February.

MILEY CYRUS - ‘Endless Summer Vacation’ [March 10th]

The world of Hannah Montana seems so far away now. Now firmly established as one of the biggest pop stars on the planet, Miley Cyrus releases her 8th studio album this month. Described as a “love letter” to Los Angeles, lead single ‘Flowers’ has already set streaming records. Brandi Carlile and Sia feature as guests on the album, while uber-producers Greg Kurstin, Kid Harpoon and Mike Will Made It also contributed. Expect this to be BIG. 


U2 - ‘Songs of Surrender’ [March 17th]

40 songs from U2’s back catalogue, re-worked, re-arranged and re-imagined? It seems like a bit of a pointless exercise, until you hear what Bono and co. have done with stripped-back versions of songs like ‘Stuck in a Moment You Can’t Get Out Of’. This was the band’s ‘lockdown project’ and it packs a punch, despite coming across as a bit of a vanity project or money-making scheme.


LANA DEL REY - ‘Did You Know That There’s A Tunnel Under Ocean Blvd.’ [March 24th]

She may not be best pleased with how Glastonbury have promoted her, but Lana Del Rey ploughs on regardless. Her 9th album features contributions from the likes of Father John Misty, Bleachers, SYML, Jon Batiste and more, and is the follow-up to 2021’s ‘Blue Bannisters’. Jack Antonoff once again produces, while there’s even a track inspired by his fiance Margaret Qualley (‘Margaret’) amongst these 16 songs.


DEPECHE MODE - ‘Memento Mori’ [March 24th]

Their first album in six years sees Depeche Mode reach the landmark of 15 studio albums - and sadly, their first without founding member Andy Fletcher, who passed away last year. Now in their 33rd year, the band have said that ‘Memento Mori’ encapsulates themes of paranoia and obsession, and catharsis to joy. Work started on the album in the early stages of the pandemic, which undoubtedly inspired it, while Martin Gore added: “After Fletch's passing, we decided to continue as we're sure this is what he would have wanted, and that has really given the project an extra level of meaning.”


LANKUM - ‘False Lankum’ [March 24th]

The Irish folk band haven’t made a bad album yet - can ‘False Lankum’ continue their winning streak? Their fourth record follows their 2019 breakthrough ‘The Livelong Day’, which won the Choice Music Prize for Irish Album of the Year. This one is said to see the Dublin band venture further into the experimental and drone world, incorporating trad and folk into their innovative sound - as heard on lead single ‘Go Dig My Grave’.
