Fall 2012 Release Schedule

As the weather gets colder, music’s hottest artists are gearing up to release new albums. We’ve compiled our annual list of fall’s most-anticipated releases from newcomers like Kendrick Lamar and French Montana to veterans like Brandy and T.I., who are planning big year-end comebacks.

Will R&B crooner Ne-Yo keep the winter fires burning with his R.E.D. album and will the highly-anticipated Dreams and Nightmares from Maybach Music Group’s spitter Meek Mill live up to the great expectations?
