New Indie Albums 2021 Release List

2021 is going to be another exciting year for the indie music scene and the beginning of a new decade. With lots of new albums from bands such as Foo Fighters, Django Django and Maximo Park in the making, 2021 promises to be just as good as 2020. While some records already have a definite release date and title, others are in early production stages or have merely been announced.

Debut albums have been confirmed for TV Priest (Feb 5), Arlo Parks (Jan 29) and The Luka State (Jan 29). Black Honey, Tom Grennan and Pale Waves have announced their sophomore albums. New albums are also expected for Roosevelt, Cloud Nothings, Royal Blood and London Grammar.
