In only two weeks, 2022 has seen the release of several highly anticipated albums. The Weeknd’s Dawn FM, RuPaul’s Mamaru, Elvis Costello & The Imposters’ The Boy Named If, FKA Twigs’ Caprisongs, and The Wombats Fix Yourself, Not the World are just some of the incredible masterpieces that have been released this year. But there’s still a lot more to come.
