Most anticipated albums of 2014
Beck, Wu-Tang Clan, U2, and even more Kanye West
Ray LaMontagne - 'Supernova'
Release date: April 29
Why it's anticipated: The title track is already proving a winner at radio, which augers well for LaMontagne’s fifth studio set. Produced by The Black Keys’ Dan Auerbach and recorded in Nashville, "Supernova" marks the enigmatic singer/songwriter’s return to being a solo artist after recording with his band, the Pariah Dogs, and his first since 2010’s excellent "God Willin’ & The Creek Don’t Rise."
