Which track is getting you through Monday?
The Who, Stormzy and more coming this month.
The final albums before the year ends is an interesting selection of debuts, long-anticipated returns and new musical directions. Stormzy and The Who are the ones we're probably most excited about, but we're sure the pop world has a few curveballs to throw us before the year is out.

The 74 year old spoke about Brexit, the Labour leader and the impact of #MeToo and Time's Up in a new interview.
Speaking with the Daily Mail’s Event magazine, the 74 year old frontman was asked in a wide-ranging interview about Brexit, the sensational rise of Corbyn, and the post-Harvey Weinstein #MeToo and Time’s Up campaigns to root out sexual abuses in the entertainment industry.
“Jeremy Corbyn is not a socialist. He’s a communist,” he said about the Labour leader since 2015. “Be honest about that and see how many votes you get, Jeremy, because otherwise, you’re going to be moving in to Downing Street under a false premise.”

They've come back haunted: Nine Inch Nails mark their return with dark song and creepy David Lynch video, 'Came Back Haunted.'
Industrial rockers Nine Inch Nails have teamed up with prolific filmmaker David Lynch for their new music video for 'Came Back Haunted.' After going on hiatus in 2009, the band's return was announced by lead singer Trent Reznor in February 2013, along with a worldwide festival and arena tour.
Nine Inch Nails Mark Their Return With 'Came Back Haunted.'
In typical NIN fashion, the video is about as disturbing as it can be (see also: the universally banned Broken EP videos), showing shaky images of singer/guitarist/wizard of weird Trent Reznor spliced over an image of what looks like a flobberworm. Add in a red/white flashing screen, a particularly evil eye and strange gas mask-wearing spidergirl images, and you have a pretty good accompaniment for the dark subject matter of NIN's songs. "They put something inside of me/The smile is red and its eyes are black/I don't think I'll be coming back," sings Reznor atop trademark fuzzy guitars and synthesised 'oohs.' The song is catchy and the video is strangely hypnotising - a simple idea that gets under your skin, making you look around to see if anyone's lurking behind you.
The Super Bowl half-time entertainment shows have slowly evolved into one of the biggest deals in the entertainment industry. Get it right, get richer (you’ll already be rich, if you’re performing at the Super Bowl, these days). Get it wrong? Suffer at least 12 months of ridicule and about a fortnight of humiliation every year subsequently, as people like us dig up lists like this to remind everyone of your shame.
A good Super Bowl Halftime Show can be life-affirming. Patriotism in its finest form; live music at its glitziest and its most extravagant. Here are five of the best:
