Upcoming CD Releases


One of the best ways to keep up on what is happening in youth culture is to find out what kids are listening to. Here is a list of what we believe will be some of the important new music releases over the next few weeks. Come back often as this page will be updated regularly. If you are a parent, educator, or youthworker, keep an eye on what your kids are purchasing (and downloading!).  New CDs are usually released in stores every Tuesday. Take a walk through your local music store and check out what is being purchased. It might be an eye-opener. Music is an amazing window into what kids are thinking and feeling. To dig deeper, check out our 3D Guide to Making Responsible Music Choices. We are not necessarily recommending this music or the content of the CDs, however we do believe that anyone who works with teens should be aware of what they are listening to. Also, this is not a definitive list. We have chosen CDs from a variety of music styles as there is no one style that all kids like.
