Plenty of albums to choose from in December’s first batch of new releases.

Amy Winehouse— Lioness: Hidden Treasures

Amy Winehouse’s posthumous album of rarities, demos and b-sides.  Portions of the album sales are set to be donated to the Amy Winehouse Foundation.

Dia Frampton— Red

I watched a few episodes of NBC’s The Voice and took a particular interest in Dia Frampton, a girl with an intriguing and powerful vocal style.  It wasn’t until I began reading reviews of the singer’s debut solo album, Red, that I realized Dia is one half of rock band Meg & Dia.  Pretty cool.

Korn— The Path of Totality

Korn is one of the few metal bands to take an interest in the current electro scene— incorporating elements of dubstep into the songs on their new album, The Path of Totality.  Members of the band have performed with Skrillex live, and they’ve also enlisted him and other electronica/dubstep artists to produce some tracks off the album.  The Path of Totality is Korn’s tenth LP.

Robin Thicke— Love After War

The fifth album from the R&B offspring of Alan Thicke and Gloria Loring.

The Black Keys— El Camino

El Camnio is The Black Keys’ seventh album, and their first since Brothers, the disc that made them extremely popular.  Released tracks like “Lonely Boy” have hinted that this is going to be a great album.

The Roots— undun

I don’t know how The Roots make time for all these recordings in between Fallon performances, but it seems as if they’re always releasing a new album.  I can’t complain about that, though.

T-Pain— Revolver

New album from the autotuned R&B singer.
