New Albums Dropping 2022 | Mark Your Calendar

It's that time of year again! Album announcements are starting to trickle in, and there are a few hotly anticipated releases on the horizon. Whether you're into rock, hip-hop, or country, Friday’s are sure to give you some new music to obsess over. 

 

Why does new music release on Fridays?

Why does new music release on Fridays? Many people have wondered this, but the answer is actually unclear. There are many different theories out there; some say that it's because record labels want to give people a weekend to listen to new music and buy albums, while others believe that it's because more people are likely to be in the mood to listen to new music on Fridays. 

However, you’ll be surprised to know it’s a strategic marketing move by the music industry! Back in 1989, the music industry decided it would be a good idea to release music on Thursdays as a way to manage and track album sales. The other reason was that it prevented albums from being pirated if they were released sooner in one country than the rest of the world. 

The day of release has recently changed to a Friday. Customer poles indicate that listeners prefer music to come out on Fridays.

Listen to the latest music albums on Lucyd Bluetooth glasses

We get that as soon as a new album comes out, you’re going to want to jump straight into the listening. We just wanted to let you know about how Lucyd Bluetooth glasses can up your listening experience. 

If you're like most people, you enjoy listening to music while you work out, commute, or relax on the beach. But you probably don't want to wear headphones and have wires hanging down all over the place. Bluetooth glasses allow you to listen to your favorite tunes without having to worry about pesky cords getting in the way. Plus, the 6.5-8 hour battery life means these glasses are your best friend for listening to music while you’re out and about.

With touch control features on the arms of the glasses, you can easily pause, play and skip tracks without the need to take out your phone. Sharp open-ear playback means you can hear everything around with ease. The flush speakers in each arm provide a safer and more aware listening experience than traditional headphones do because they don't cover up what's happening outside.
