2013 is going to be a stellar year for anyone who loves music. Kanye West, Daft Punk, Adele and U2 are all rumored to be putting out new albums in the next 12 months. Fleetwood Mac is going on tour and—who knows—maybe they will head back into the studio. And The Breeders are rehearsing for the 20th Anniversary Last Splash Tour. As long as we are wishful thinking, perhaps 2013 will be the year that Vampire Weekend finally releases a new album. (After all, they did play a new song on Jimmy Kimmel Live back in October.) Perhaps British act Savages will finally put out a full-length. Maybe the Rolling Stones will even headline the Coachella Music Festival….
While it’s easy to speculate about what could happen in the new year, here are 11 albums we know we can get excited about.
