With Blackstar, Lemonade, The Life of Pablo, Blonde, Views, Coloring Book and more having already dropped since the beginning of the year – and both Lady Gaga's Joanne and a Drake-Kanye collaborative LP still purportedly on the way – 2016 will be tough to beat in terms of major album releases. But big things are already brewing for next year. Here's everything we know about 2017's most-anticipated records, including LCD Soundsystem's comeback, the Rolling Stones' new blues odyssey and Jay Z's post-Lemonade opus.

Lorde

Earlier this summer, Lorde said she "took a helicopter out into the wilderness, spent three days alone writing and made some exciting breakthroughs." It now appears she's close to releasing her follow-up to 2013's Pure Heroine: "I've worked like a dog for a year making this thing great for you guys," she wrote on Instagram recently. "The record is written – we're in the production stage now." Rumored producers include Flume and Jack Antonoff.
