Alt-rockers X Ambassadors will release their third studio album, “The Beautiful Liar,” on Sept. 24. This time, brothers Sam Nelson Harris and Casey Harris created a concept album that pays homage to the radio dramas and books-on-tape they listened to as kids. It tells the tale of a blind teenage girl discovering her long-dormant superpowers and punctuates a variety of music styles — from the unhinged and catchy “Adrenaline” to the ballad “Okay” — with a series of interludes.
— Diddy has new music dropping Sept. 24, the album titled “Off the Grid Vol. 1.” It’s Diddy’s first release since his 2015 mixtape “MMM,” which featured artists including Travis Scott, Future, Lil’ Kim, Big Sean, Ty Dolla $ign and Wiz Khalifa. The rapper has not put out a full album since 2010’s “Last Train to Paris.” Diddy — whose name has morphed from Puffy to Puff Daddy to P. Diddy, to Diddy and then P. Diddy — changed his middle name to “Love” and announced the album with the slogan “Welcome to the Love Era!”
