Alice in Borderland S2

Release Date: December 22

This is personally one of the shows that is at the top of my waiting list for quite some time now. The wait for the second season of this thrilling Japanese series has been nothing short of grueling. Alice in Borderland revolves around a group of men and women who are literally thrown into an almost video game-like world wherein they must play in order to survive. As the games unfold, they also become a lot more difficult, testing the player’s strength, wisdom, and emotions. The second season will continue the aforementioned fun but this time around the players must not only find a way to survive but must also figure out the truth revolving around their predicaments in order to find a way to escape.

The Witcher: Blood Origin

Blood Origin will be a prequel set 1,200 years before the events of The Witcher television series, and will depict the creation of the first Witcher, as well as the events leading to the “Conjunction of the Spheres”.

  • Date: December 2

Hype List december 2022

The X-Factor contestant/coach of the Voice UK is releasing his 7th studio album this month and by the title alone looks to be going for a romantic theme that hopes to showcase both upbeat and slow-paced songs. With hit tracks such as “Dance with Me Tonight, we have seen the success of Olly Murs and are therefore excited for the new sounds and lyrical jabs that he will deliver in this new album.

You Know What I Need (Single)

  • Artist: Troye Sivan
  • Date: December 2

Hype List december 2022

One of the most popular alternative rock bands is back to end 2022 in the right way with their return. Paramore won’t be dropping an entire album but a single will have to make do. This may mean down the line that the band would eventually release an album as well, who knows, but we are definitely excited to see a release from Paramore once again.

Christmas Songs

  • Artist: David Foster & Katherine McPhee
  • Date: December 2

Hype List december 2022

Given that it’s December, we must have a Christmas-themed song or album release. There may be no one better to dish one out than David Foster himself. Who is David Foster you may ask? He’s only one of the best music producers, composers, arrangers, record producers, and music executives of our generation. He is responsible for several hit tracks while working with great artists such as Michael Buble, Blake Shelton, and Josh Groban, just to name a few — most of which are Christmas albums. So it’s great to finally get an album with Foster himself and all the more with his wife — Katherine McPhee.

Choi Min-ho is known for being part of the K-Pop boy band, Shinee but this December, he is set to drop his solo debut album entitled Chase.
