Who needs school on the brain when you've got a fresh list of new music releases for September 2011? Not us! Ditch those books and grab a few new albums -- they'll keep you happy a lot longer than a diploma ... Maybe.

The first weekend in September is completely wrapped around Labor Day on Sept. 5, and it seems that most artists don't want to mess with a day-after release. Instead, Swizz Beatz will kick off the fall newbies with 'Haute Living' on Sept. 13.

On Sept. 20, however, the record store shelves will be so packed with new albums that they'll practically be toppling over. Perhaps the biggest release of the month, Demi Lovato will unveil her 'Unbroken' record, which features 'Skyscraper,' that day, as will Gavin DeGraw, who is unfortunately not unbroken. The 'Chariot' singer-songwriter was attacked at the beginning of August and suffered a broken nose as a result, but new music on the charts should help lift his spirits!

Also on Sept. 20, Young Jeezy will drop 'TM:103,' Mary J. will set out on a new journey, and Dev will tell the tale of 'The Night the Sun Came Up.' A week later, Blink 182 will drop their much anticipated record, 'Neighborhoods' alongside J. Cole's 'Cole World: The Sideline Story.'

For all of the latest new music releases, like September and then some, stay tuned to PopCrush.com!
