Albums released in 2008Which albums are you looking forward to hearing in 2008? February kicks off with the new album from Hot Chip, Made in the Dark, which is already receiving rave reviews (released Feb 5).

Foals' debut album, Antidote, will go some way to seeing whether they can match the hype of being granted an NME cover before they have even released a long player. And Alex Turner and Miles Kane's as-yet-untitled project, due in April, should appease Arctic Monkeys fans.

Jack White is not a man to rest on his laurels, and the window in his diary caused by the cancellation of the White Stripes' world tour (owing to Meg White suffering from exhaustion) means he can focus on The Raconteurs' follow-up to 2006's excellent Broken Boy Soldier, due in the summer.

Later in the year we have as-yet-untitled releases from heavyweights Coldplay, The Verve and Oasis. Neither of these are likely to break new ground but may help the record companies, particularly Coldplay's EMI label, who recently laid off 1/3 of their staff.

The Kooks will be trying to combat second album syndrome with Konk, as will Dirty Pretty Things, both expected in the spring. And Doves will release the follow-up to the excellent Some Cities, towards the end of 2008.
