All year music fans look forward to what they will be listening to for the next 365 days. The beginning of a new year usually means musical creations… that takes some time. But, as we enter 2020, iconic artists have already thought about what we’ll be listening to… and hopefully, it’s them.

This year, we’re expecting music from Iron Maiden’s bassist Steve Harris, live albums from Blue Oyster Cult and Price, as well as music from spin-off bands like Sons of Apollo.
