This Week's Music (May 19, 2009)

Welcome back to the weekly new music roundup, where I will try highlighting some of tomorrow's interesting/major music releases.

Tori Amos is back this week with her newest album, Abnormally Attracted to Sin. This is her tenth studio album, and her first independent effort (distributed by Universal Republic Records).

On a semi-related note (since he was covered by Tori on the album Strange Little Girls), Eminem is also coming back with Relapse. Meanwhile, Busta Rhymes will release his eighth studio album, Back On My B.S., after previously-planned release dates kept falling through.

The twentieth anniversary of Lenny Kravitz's Let Love Rule will be celebrated with a deluxe reissue of the album.

Jarvis Cocker, best known for his work with Pulp, will also be releasing his latest solo effort, Further Complications, tomorrow. Watch the video for his song "Angela" below. A list of this week's releases follows.
