2014 is already shaping up to be a pretty musical year, with acts including Blondie, Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga getting in on the new album action.

  • Early 2000s British Murder on the Dancefloor hit maker Sophie Ellis-Bextor will release her fifth studio album on January 21.

Titled Wanderlust, the album will feature a track called Young Blood which was released as a demo version online last year.

  • Dutch symphonic metal bank Within Temptation will be back with their sixth album, Hydra, at the end of this month.

With a powerful blend of pounding drumbeats and mystical instrumental sounds, you need to check this band out if you haven't already.

  • Mid-90s Peaches hit makers Presidents of the United States of America will release their sixth studio album in February.

It hasn't been named as yet, though we're guessing they'll never match the catchiness of their previous hits.

  • March 25 will see the posthumous studio album from Johhny Cash, Out Among the Stars.

The album is comprised mostly of recordings from the 1980s that were discovered by Cash's son in 2012.

  • Blink 182 will return with a seventh studio album which is said to be recorded around the start of the year.

After "quitting" the music scene, Lily Allen, who now goes by the name Lily Rose Cooper, will be back with her third album.

  • Old school rockers Blondie will burst onto the scene in 2014 with their 10th album so far, titled Ghosts of Download.
  • Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett will - strangely - join forces for Cheek to Cheek, a combined album featuring both their vocals.

It will hit the shelves later this month.

  • Bruce Springsteen is a bit of an album factory. He will release his 18th offering on the 14th of January, titled High Hopes.
  • The Fray will be back with their fourth album, Helios, on February 25.

Lead single Love Don't Die was released in October last year.
