PHILADELPHIA (CBS) -- It's already been a rough Tuesday. Your morning coffee is more expensive, you are stuck with leftover 4th of July potato salad for lunch, and now comes news that you'll have to wait until Friday to hear the new Tyrese album. When does it end.
Thanks to the International Federation of the Phonographic Industry, the music industry has shifted its release date for new music to the universal day of Friday across the globe. The move hopes to "reduce the risk of piracy by narrowing the gap between release days in different countries" and "creates the opportunity to re-ignite excitement and a sense of occasion around the release of new music," according to the organization.
Essentially, your cousin stole too much music and now we can't have nice things.
So with all this free time, what do we do? We could work, but that seems desperate. Or, we could take time from watching Carli Lloyd videos and look ahead.
Here's what is still to come in the world of music for July. Think of it as a long-range forecast for your ears.
Veruca Salt returns with their first original line-up album since the glory days of 1997, and Tyrese takes a break from fighting robots and racing cars to deliver Black Rose.
Also Out: R5, Owl City, and Ghostface Killah
Alan Jackson is back with his 15th studio album Angels And Alcohol, and The Chemical Brothers block-rock their way through Born In The Echoes.
Also Out: Pitbull, Galactic, and Tame Impala
Philadelphia's own Jill Scott drops Woman, and Ducktails unleashes the vibes of St. Catherine.
Also Out: Kasey Chambers and Ashley Monroe
Joss Stone grooves through Water For The Soul, and Jersey punk outfit Titus Andronicus debut The Most Lamentable Tragedy.
Also Out: CFCF, Albert Hammond Jr., and The Maccabees
See, there's hope. Raise that fork of potato salad with hope.
