NEW RELEASES: EXPERIENCE VS. REPUTATION

A chart battle for #1 just might be brewing between U2 and Taylor Swift. Interscope’s rock icons have dropped Songs of Experience, their follow-up to 2014’s Song of Innocence, along with a ticket bundle. Swift’s reputation, meanwhile, just became available for streaming on all DSPs; her SEA may well spike as a result. Meanwhile, Nashville hero Chris Stapleton arrives with a potent sequel of his own, From A Room: Vol. 2. Here’s how things look for now, but you’ll want to check in regularly.

U2 (Interscope) 175-195k SPS, 170-190k album
Chris Stapleton (Mercury Nashville) 110-125k, 95-110k
Miguel (ByStorm/RCA) 30-35k, 11-14k

Speaking of songs of experience, Michael Flynn is said to be preparing for the vocal performance of his career.
