Among the album announces this week comes the surprising news that Father John Misty will be releasing his follow up to Pure Comedy rather soon on June 1. Titled God’s Favourite Customer, he’s shared two more new singles this week, Just Dumb Enough To Try and Disappointing Diamonds Are The Rarest Of Them All. The two tracks will join the previously released Mr. Tillman on the album.

Drake has also teased a new album via Instagram. Set to be titled Scorpion this release is said to be a studio album, unlike his previous mixtape release More Life. While we don’t have a set release date yet, Drake has said it will be out in June.

And while this isn’t an album, we are still pretty excited about Mazzy Star announcing a new EP, Still. The EP will feature three new songs as well as an alternate version of their track So Tonight That I Might See. They’ve already released EP single Quiet, the Winter Harbour, the full EP will be available on June 1. It’s the follow up to 2013’s Seasons of Your Day, which was their first album in 17 years.
