Below is a bar chart showing the number of full-length Canadian (i.e. by Canadian artists) albums released in both 2015 and 2014 per month. We only tracked albums available through major retailers (on CD through hmv or Amazon or digitally through iTunes). The total number of albums was comparable through both years (a little over 650 per annum). December and January are lowest and July and August also see a reduction. Autumn has the highest number and also high in the spring. Whereas 2014 saw most releases in September, 2015 had most in October. The two years also traded March and April as the spring months with the most releases.
