The Pitchfork Guide to Upcoming Releases: Winter 2015


Records to look forward to in the coming months

By Matthew Strauss

Welcome once again to the Pitchfork Guide to Upcoming Releases, our seasonal guide to new music. Four times a year, we round up a list of albums, singles, EPs, and DVDs arriving over the coming months. Maybe you’ll, y’know, go out and buy records. This installment covers winter 2015.

With different release dates for digital and physical versions of albums, as well as different release dates for different countries, compiling this list is tricky. With that in mind, we tried to stick with North American physical release dates as much as possible. Please note that release dates may change.
