Loreen has shared the first single from her upcoming second studio album online.
The Swedish songstress who took home the Eurovision crown in 2012 with her smash hit single Euphoria, premiered Paper Light (Higher) on Spotify earlier today and will release the track worldwide on 9 March.
Loreen’s latest full length offering is reported to feature collaborations with Kiesza, Thomas G:son and Peter Boström, and follows the release of Heal two years ago which also spawned the singles Crying Out Your Name and My Heart Is Refusing Me. She later paired up with fellow Swede Kleerup on his single Requiem Solution.
The 31 year old Stockholm native will perform Paper Light live for the first time this coming Saturday (7 March) during Melodifestivalen’s Andra Chansen (Second Chance) gala.
Ahead of his approaching headline slot at the Dot to Dot festival in May, Nottingham-raised Saint Raymond has premiered his brand new single Come Back To You.
Receiving its first play on Zane Lowe’s BBC Radio Show this evening, the synth-washed and reggae-tinged indie pop track follows the release of Callum Burrows’ previous singles Fall At Your Feet and I Want You, and last year’s Ghost EP.
Come Back To You is scheduled to be released to UK iTunes on 12 April via Atlantic Records.
This musical rebirth of Westlife’s Markus Feehily remains one of 2015’s most pleasant surprises. Had you told me a few months ago that I would be championing the Irish singer’s debut solo single, I would most likely have given you the eyebrow.
But then along comes Love Is A Drug, a searing, reflective heartbreak ballad that was co-produced and co-written by Steve Anderson along with a team called Mojam who have previously worked with newly crowned Grammy Award-winner Sam Smith and the UK’s best selling artist of 2012, Emeli Sandé. And it’s, perhaps surprisingly, Sandé’s body of work that draws the greatest comparison with Love Is A Drug.
Fuelled by a fiery and explosive vocal performance, Feehily’s first single builds up to a big gospel-backed crescendo of a chorus that you’ll struggle to evict from your brain. Most importantly though is that the track not only marks a remarkable post-boyband debut that will still retain his old fans, but that it also clearly signposts a forward-marching direction that opens up a whole new host of opportunities for the singer. Naughty Boy feat. Mark Feehily, anyone?
The video for Love Is A Drug received its official premiere earlier today, whilst the single is set to impact UK iTunes on 19 April.
Tennessee-raised but now living in Los Angeles, Meg Myers is the latest US singer-songwriter to start gaining traction online following the release of this title track from her upcoming full length major studio debut Sorry.
With backing from Atlantic Records, Myers’ latest arrives offering the femrock-favouring generation with a refreshingly edgier alternative to the more angstpop-driven extremities.
Electro-backed verses, delivered with aching nuance and searing emotion, build up to a crashing and emotionally-lambasting chorus, making Sorry a perfectly-packaged four minute-long vehicle for Myers’ fully-rounded vocals and intensely personal lyrics.
The Veronicas have unveiled the official music video for the third track from their latest album.
The Australian sisters, Jess and Lisa Origliasso, have chosen to release fan favourite Cruel in their homeland as the follow up to their comeback heartbreak ballad You Ruin Me and the triumphant banger If You Love Someone, which reached #1 and #5 respectively on the ARIA singles chart.
The clip for their latest relentlessly catchy pop number sees the leather-clad beauties taking revenge on a man who has wronged them. Kidnapped from his dingy motel room and driven to the desert, he soon finds himself on the receiving end of some Heathers-style revenge. Those Veronicas.
Watch the video below and check out Jess and Lisa’s official website for dates and ticket details for the UK leg of their Sanctified tour which is currently under way and ends on 11 March at London’s Heaven.
Swedish indie pop outfit Urban Cone have premiered the official lyric video for their new single Come Back To Me.
Featuring guest vocals from fellow Swede and Talking Body songstress Tove Lo, the track serves as the lead cut to be lifted from the Stockholm fivesome’s upcoming sophomore album Polaroid Memories which is set for release later this Spring via Universal.
It’s a shame that The Chainsmokers’ last single, the Siren-assisted Kanye didn’t match the commercial success of their novelty-tinged debut #Selfie but the electronic production duo’s latest offering continues to show that they’re a dab hand at delivering high-octane, rousing dancefloor fillers that are perfectly accustomed to their guest vocalists.
For Let You Go, Andrew Taggart and Alex Pall have called upon the services of fellow NYC duo Great Good Fine Ok, and the result caters perfectly to fans of GGFO’s brand of synth-injected indie pop and The Chainsmokers’ own bubbling, progressive EDM beats.
Let You Go is available to download on iTunes now.
