This fall, could Adele and Rihanna issue their long-awaited new albums? Will Demi Lovato drop a surprise release? And might Kanye West’s previously announced album materialize?

All those questions and more are contemplated on the latest episode of the Billboard Pop Shop Podcast (listen below), as the new show is devoted to discussing what is known -- and unknown -- about this fall’s album release schedule.

That schedule includes the albums that we know are coming (like Mariah Carey’s The Rarities, Kylie Minogue’s Disco and SuperM’s Super One) to those that are likely on their way soon (Alicia KeysAlicia and OneRepublic’s Human) and even the sets that are simply filed under “to be determined” (like those from Sam Smith, Brockhampton and more).

Also on the horizon: new holiday efforts from Carrie Underwood and Dolly Parton, a new Bon Jovi studio set and Blackpink's The Album.
