6 LGBTQ+ Albums Coming Out in 2023

Brand new year, brand new sounds! 2023 seems set to be packed with a great range of fantastic artists releasing new content. From chart-topping hits to the punk rock resurgence, we’re already spoiled for choice. Here is a list of six albums by LGBTQ+ artists with imminent release dates to keep an eye out for.

RuPaul – Black Butta (January 6th)

Bring out the hand fans and glitter balls, because the Queen of Drag herself is back with her fifteenth studio album Black Butta. Following on from the release of her lead single Star Baby, RuPaul is continuing to provide fans with confidence-boosting pop hits. The album also features the holiday anthem Show Me That You Festive and A.S.M.R Lover (featuring Skeltal Ki), already indicating a range of sounds for the new record.

Måneskin – Rush (January 20th)

Ever since their landslide win in Eurovision 2021, Italian band Måneskin have received global attention from fans of all ages. The rock group have impressed listeners with hits like I Wanna Be Your Slave and their cover of Beggin’, which quickly went viral on social media. Their upcoming third studio album Rush promises a route of dance-punk, whilst also sticking to their origins of pure rock. With LGBTQ+ members, the band consistently showed support for the community on their tour around the world.

Låpsley - Cautionary Tales of Youth (January 20th)

Openly bisexual singer Holly Fletcher, known professionally by her stage name Låpsley, is back with her third studio album Cautionary Tales of Youth. With previous albums Long Way Home and Through Water receiving favorable reviews from critics, the singer’s much-awaited third album follows on from the release of indie-electronic single Smoke and Fire. As well as the title suggesting a more personal glimpse at the artists’ youth, Låpsley has revealed that the record details her emotions through the 2020 lockdown, where she stayed in South Africa.

Sam SmithGloria (January 27th)

Sam Smith recently made history with fellow pop singer Kim Petras, as the first trans and non-binary artists to top the Billboard 100 with their hugely successful single Unholy. Since then, their fourth studio album Gloria has been hotly anticipated. Smith has seen success with their previous work, particularly with hits like Stay With Me, but saw somewhat of a dip in chart success in recent years. However, with this new resurgence, they’re set to be as popular as ever. Watch this space!

Adam Lambert – High Drama (February 24th)

Beyond touring with Queen as the stand-in for Freddie Mercury and his immense social activism for the LGBTQ+ community, Adam Lambert has also found the time to record brand-new record High Drama, releasing this February. With Bond-esque single Mad About the Boy already a success, the album promises more queer anthems of love and self-confidence. Lambert has never shied away from expressing his identity, and it seems High Drama will live up to its name and provide us with the extravagant self-assurance many of us need right now.

Miley Cyrus – Endless Summer Vacation (March 10th)

After the immense success of her return-to-rock record Plastic Hearts in 2020, the Hannah Montana actress is making her comeback with newly announced record Endless Summer Vacation this March. The lead single Flowers (released on January 13th) provided fans with their first glimpse of the style of music the pop star is delving into this time. Whether the record sees a continuation of the pop-rock anthems of late, or a return to a more electronic sound, it’s already a given that Miley Cyrus’ powerhouse vocals will remain as strong as ever in this new release.
