Toy and Childish Gambino release albums this week alongside new material from Snoop Dogg and R Kelly. (November 4).

Toy release their new album 'Join The Dots', their second LP and the follow up to their 2012 self-titled debut. Recorded with producer Dan Carey, bassist Maxim 'Panda' Barron told NME that the album was a different experience for the band. "'Toy' was recorded and mastered in two weeks. 'Join The Dots' took twice as long. We experimented a lot more. There are more vocal harmonies. It just much more sophisticated sonically."

Meanwhile, Childish Gambino releases 'Because The Internet'. In October, the rapper posted a hand-written seven-page letter on Instagram listing his anxieties and desires for his new album.

He later explained the letter in an interview with NME, insisting: "I'm not having a personality crisis, more like a personality burst." He also confirmed that he is not actually giving up his music career - but simply objects to calling himself a "rapper".

Also out today is R Kelly's new album 'Black Panties', Snoop Dogg's '7 Days Of Funk' collaborative album with Dam Funk and albums by Ejecta and Museum Of Bellas Artes.

This week's new album and EP releases:

Childish Gambino – 'Because The Internet'
Ejecta – 'Dominae'
Museum Of Bellas Artes – 'Pieces'
R. Kelly – 'Black Panties'
7 Days of Funk – '7 Days Of Funk'
Toy – 'Join The Dots'
