New music: 5 hot albums that need to be on your radar in July

Del Rey has been on quite a roll over the past 10 years, beginning with the deliriously good major label debut “Born to Die” in 2012 and continuing through such stellar efforts as 2014’s “Ultraviolence” and 2017’s “Lust for Life.” All told, she’s fashioned one of the best pop music catalogs of the last 10 years. And we can’t to hear this new addition — Del Rey’s eighth studio album overall — which quickly follows the March release of “Chemtrails over the Country Club.” “Blue Banisters” is due out July 4.

Millions of fans around the globe have been breathlessly awaiting Eilish’s sophomore effort, which follows 2019’s multiplatinum-selling, multi-Grammy-winning debut “When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?” From what we’ve heard from the four singles released already — “Therefore I Am,” “My Future,” “Your Power” and “Lost Cause” — those fans will likely be happier than ever with “Happier Than Ever.” Due out July 30.
