The list of March 2020 New Music Releases sort of cruises along until the very end of the month, when a huge slate of albums arrives.
Pearl Jam‘s 11th studio LP, Gigaton, is the most anticipated item scheduled for March 27. Tesla also has a live release set to arrive that day, while Gregg and Duane Allman, Ratt and Jefferson Airplane are among the reissues coming out.
Elsewhere, Def Leppard‘s five-disc Early Years 79-81 set will include the first-ever appearance of an unreleased and newly mixed 1980 show from Oxford. Longtime Tom Petty sideman Mike Campbell is also debuting a new band called the Dirty Knobs.
