As we head toward December, we’re closing in on the final releases of 2015. While you may already be fairly committed to your working list of the year's best albums, December promises a handful of records that could potentially shake up your year-end review.

Coldplay will open the month with A Head Full of Dreams, their seventh and possibly final album. On Dec. 11, Warpaint bassist Jenny Lee Lindberg will make her solo debut with Right On! Then, Baroness will drop their fourth full-length, Purple, on Dec. 18.
