The rather ace Gabriella Cilmi ploughs ahead with the third single release from her current album ‘Ten’. The change in tempo and pace works wonders, becoming Gabriella’s finest ballad to date. ‘Defender’ is a big giant mighty anthem of the ‘I’ll stand by you’ variety – ah, like those from the good old days! The track showcases Gabriella’s full and impressive vocal range – from the fragile and restrained beginnings to the powerful climax – it’ll sends shivers down your spine!
The single is a double A-side and is backed with the release of ‘On A Magic Carept Ride’ which was originally the b-side on the CD single version of ‘On A Mission’, it is given an actual release due to its inclusion on the soundtrack to Bristish film Soul Boy, which opens in September.
