March is going to be an interesting time for music fans. No matter what you like, there is probably an album worth having for you. From rock to pop to Latin pop, a well-known and talented musical artist's new album awaits your listen.

There are some big-hitters overall. Justin Timberlake is dropping his first full-length record since 2018 (and hopefully the new one will be better than that). Shakira is releasing her first record since 2017.

Plus, Beyoncé is putting out her sequel to 2022's Renaissance. You can bet Taylor Swift will be bouncing around to Queen Bey's next record. So, probably, will the rest of us.

Full album release schedule for March

March 1

Another Sky - Beach Day
Ben Frost - Scope Neglect
Brittany Davis - Image Issues
Bruce Dickinson - The Mandrake Project
Coco - 2
Daniel Romano's Outfit - Too Hot To Sleep
Everything Everything - Mountainhead
Faye Webster - Underdressed At The Symphony

lake j - Dizzy
Liam Gallagher & John Squire - Liam Gallagher John Squire

Ministry - HOPIUMFORTHEMASSES
Nils Frahm - Day
Pissed Jeans - Half Divorced
ScHoolboy Q - Blue Lips
Sheer Mag - Playing Favorites
STRFKR - Parallel Realms
Yard Act - Where's My Utopia?

If you like slightly older rock, this is the week for you. Iron Maiden's Bruce Dickinson is putting out his first new album since 2005, Tyranny of Souls. Ministry has been hanging around and making industrial metal for years, but it always seems good. Liam Gallagher and John Squire hopefully will sound like Oasis meets the Stones Roses.

March 8

Ariana Grande - Eternal Sunshine
Bleachers - Bleachers
Judas Priest - Invincible Shield
Kanye West & Ty Dolla $ign - Vultures Vol. 2
Kim Gordon - The Collective
Meatbodies - Flora Ocean Tiger Bloom
Moor Mother - The Great Bailout
Norah Jones - Visions
The Jesus and Mary Chain - Glasgow Eyes
The Libertines - All Quiet On The Eastern Esplanade

This might be a huge-selling week because how many people have been waiting on the new Meatbodies album, am I right? Seriously, maybe that one will do well, but Ariana Grande will almost definitely sell thousands and thousands. Norah Jones too.

March 15

Dan Boeckner - Boeckner!
DragonForce - Warp Speed Warriors
Four Tet - Three
Justin Timberlake - Everything I Thought It Was
Kacey Musgraves - Deeper Well
Lenny Kravitz - Blue Electric Light
Scott Stapp - Higher Power
The Black Crowes - Happiness Bastards
The Dandy Warhols - Rockmaker
Tierra Whack - World Wide Whack
Tim Burgess - Tim’s Listening Party

Likely another big-selling week with the release (finally!) of Justin Timberlake's new record. My personal hope is that the Black Crowes' first album since 2009 is excellent. The first single off the record, "Wanting and Waiting," was fantastic but the second single, "Cross Your Fingers," was not quite as good.

March 22

Adrianne Lenker - Bright Future
Elbow - AUDIO VERTIGO
Empress Of - For Your Consideration
Gary Clark Jr. - JPEG Raw
Gossip - Real Power
Jlin - Akoma
Julia Holter - Something In The Room She Moves
Lauran Hibberd - girlfriend material
Maynard James Keenan - Cinquanta
Odetta Hartman - Swansongs
Prefuse 73 - New Strategies For Modern Crime Vol. 1
Saint Saviour - Sunseeker
Shakira - Las Mujeres Ya No Lloran
The Staves - All Now
Waxahatchee - Tigers Blood

What an eccentric week this is. If you or a friend loves every type of music, this might be the week you have saved your money for. Shakira, Gary Clark, Jr., and Tool's Maynard James Keenan all at one time? Yes, please!

March 29

Beyoncé - Act II
Cakes Da Killa - Black Sheep
Chastity Belt - Live Laugh Love
Dent May - What's For Breakfast?
Ed Harcourt - El Magnifico
High Llamas - Hey Panda
Kelly Moran - Moves In The Field
Ride - Interplay
Sheryl Crow - Evolution
Sum 41 - Heaven :x: Hell

Beyoncé is likely to crush everyone else this week. She is like the blockbuster movie that other movies avoid releasing at the same time. Hopefully, her new album is worth it.
