The list of May 2021 New Music Releases features a long-awaited album from a first-timer, a long (really long, actually) player from a longtimer, plus key reissues that were a long time coming.

Heart cofounder Nancy Wilson's debut solo album, You and Me, includes a series of originals and choice updates recorded in her California home studio, with collaborators joining remotely. Covers include songs by Bruce Springsteen, Pearl Jam and Simon & Garfunkel.

Van Morrison is set to release his 42nd studio album – but that doesn't mean he's slowing down. In fact, Latest Record Project: Volume 1 is a massive 28-track two-disc set. Blackberry Smoke are celebrating their 20th anniversary with a new record, You Hear Georgia. Elsewhere, Delta Kream includes covers of blues songs originally performed by some of the Black Keys' influences.

The slate of upcoming reissues includes Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young's 50th-anniversary edition of Deja Vu, which has been expanded to include four additional discs of demos, unreleased studio recordings and alternate versions of songs. A new two-disc set called The Width of a Circle collects previously unheard David Bowie tracks from 1970.

More information on these and other new rock-related efforts can be found below. Remember to follow our continuously updated list of 2021 New Music Releases for details on projects issued throughout the year.
