If you look in the dictionary under Zen monk, you might well see a picture of Moby, who at 52, has reached the point in his life where he gives zero fucks about anything except creating music, impeaching Trump and being a tireless animal and environmental activist. Moby’s 15th studio album, “Everything Was Beautiful, And Nothing Hurt” comes out today.

Fans of David Byrne are excited the Talking Heads frontman has a new album, “American Utopia,” his first project in five years.

Bisexual Azealia Banks just signed a $1 million record deal and has has a new 22-track album “Fantasea 11: the Second Wave.” Due out this month, Busta Rhymes and Spice Girls’ Mel B are featured on the rapper’s album.

Before Hayley Kiyoko brings her sexy lesbian hotness to perform at Coachella, you best be prepared to buy her latest album “Expectations,” out March 30.

If you like country music, check out Chase Sansing, who has a brand new song and video out, “Begins With You.” The music is inspired by the rising country star’s struggle as a gay musician in Nashville.

After spending time in Nashville, expect Kylie Minogue’s new album “Golden” to have a country music-inspired feel. Her 14th album drops April 6. And if you’re in New York for the weekend in June, she headlines Pride Island.

It’s so clear watching Janelle Monae’s new sexually ambiguous video, how much Prince has influenced her. Even the name of her new CD, “Dirty Computer,” brings back the memory of Prince’s song, “Computer Blues.” Her project is out April 27.

Ian McCullough is still one sexy mofo. Watching him perform his iconic new wave songs like “The Cutter” and “Do It Clean” is a can’t miss. Echo & the Bunnymen’s new album, “The Stars, The Ocean & The Moon” comes out in May. The new record will feature a mix of both new material and updated Bunnymen classics.

The gayest music to be on the lookout for:

Troye Sivan’s new album will be released this spring. Via Twitter, the much-loved, gorgeous gay pop singer announced a music collab with Ariana Grande. “I’m just doing what all the other pop stars are doing: writing love songs, singing love songs and putting love interests in my music videos,” he told the Guardian. “I think there’s power in living openly and truthfully, while also being gay.”

Pull up to your bumpers with the always fantastic Grace Jones, who has a new music documentary out in April. You’ll get to see live performances of her songs.

Later this year, Lady Gaga will be singing the songs Barbra Streisand performed so gorgeously, in the latest remake of  “A Star is Born.” Gaga will also be starting a new residency in Las Vegas.

Madonna is working on new material, and we so hope things get better for her in the studio. On a recent Instagram, Madge responded to a post a Guy Oseary had up, saying, “Remember when I made records with other artists from beginning to end and I was allowed to be a visionary and not have to go to songwriting camps where no one can sit still for more than 15 minutes.”

Former boy band star Zayn Malik has been teasing beautiful new music from his third album on Instagram. Recently, the British-Pakistan pop star showcased his Hindi singing skills with a cover of Kailash Kher’s song “Teri Deewani.”
