Zella Day has premiered the final track from her self-titled debut EP which came out last week.
Hypnotic is another articulately presented, addictive pop offering indeed and follows the release of the Los Angeles-based singer’s earlier singles Sweet Ophelia, East of Eden and Compass to round up the four song strong set’s final tracklist.

It’s been a few years since we last wrote about Nashville trio Gloriana who left us impressed in 2012 with the whiling country ballads (Kissed You) Good Night and Can’t Shake You from their impressive second LP A Thousand Miles Left Behind.
Today the three piece, made up of brothers Mike and Tom Gossin and Rachel Reinert, returned with the first new material from their upcoming, as-yet-untitled third album and Trouble, the track in question, is an immediate hit-in-waiting with all the ingredients to blow their contemporaries out of the water, and secure themselves another major US chart hit whilst at it.
Loaded with attitude from the get-go, via both its guns-a-blazing lyrics and Reinert’s fierce, no-nonsense delivery, Trouble is bolstered further by an anthemic, singalong chorus, a mid-song ‘Woah Woah Woah’ break, and its gloriously faithful country arrangement.

“New York has been such an important landscape and location for the story of my life over the last couple of years” says Taylor Swift in a video, explaining why her latest countdown single Welcome to New York is the track that kicks off her new album 1989.
“I approached moving there with such wide-eyed optimism and sort of saw it as a place of endless potential and possibilities and you can kind of hear that reflected in this music and this first song especially,” she adds.
The song itself is a sunny, synth drenched pop opener that was written by Taylor with OneRepublic frontman Ryan Tedder, and it was released to US iTunes today as the follow up to the record’s lead single Shake It Off and last week’s promotional track Out of the Woods.

Field Division are Nashville-based duo Evelyn Taylor and Nicholas Frampton, and Faultlines is the lead single from their upcoming debut EP Reverie State
The folk song was the first track that the pair worked together on before embarking on the collaborative project and, written by Taylor, it’s an intoxicating barrage of ethereal vocals, wistful lyrics and dreamy melodies that draws upon the pair’s experiences of growing up in Des Moines, Iowa.
Reverie State is available to preorder on iTunes now ahead of its official release on 28 October, and Faultlines can be downloaded immediately here. Head to their official website to find out where you can catch Field Division performing live and stream the new single below.
This new single from Tulisa is a vast improvement on any of the releases from the former N-Dubz singer’s debut solo album The Human Boss.
Set for release on 7 December, Living Without You has been drawing comparisons to the recent offerings from Canadian breakthrough star Kiesza and it’s not hard to hear why.
Check out the lyric video for the club track, which was produced by STL – the same team behind Tulisa’s UK #1 single Young – below.
