New albums by U2, Eminem, and Black Eyed Peas could bring a year-end bang

Posted on

Is Universal’s Interscope-Geffen-A&M Records label looking to stack the fourth-quarter deck? Sources say the music industry’s market-share leader is preparing a fall slate that is likely to include new albums from marquee names like U2, Black Eyed Peas, No Doubt, Pussycat Dolls, and Keane. Also on tap: long-awaited efforts by Dr. Dre and Eminem, who is believed to have enough material to compile his fifth studio album. A label rep couldn’t specify or confirm any street dates, but if most (or all) of the albums get pre-holiday releases, Universal could end the year with full domination of both the charts and the ailing U.S. music market.
