Today’s Stuff…

*The beyond amazingly incredible Diane Birch has presented the artwork for the forthcoming second studio collection titled ‘Speak A Little Louder‘. The Instagram video unveiling also featured a snippet of a track featured on the album entitled ‘Lighthouse’.

*Christina Aguilera has penned a mammoth letter to the fans – the lengthy essay headlined ‘From my heart to yours… let there be love‘ is a piece whereby Christina thanks fans for their continued support and where she speaks of her recent creativity, her voice as well as offering advice and succour to those facing negative predicaments. Christina also debuted a sweetly inspiring video to accompany the Max Martin produced, ‘Lotus‘ album track ‘Let There Be Love’, which features cameo appearances from her son Max, as well as Christina Milian and Nicole Richie.

*The ridiculously brilliant Fall Out Boy have popped out the fifth instalment of ‘The Young Blood Chronicles’, with a visual for ‘The Mighty Fall’ which features Big Sean. The clip follows directly where previous clip ‘Alone Together’ left off and sees the band attempting to escape from the back of a van. The track offers a defiant and strong sound filled with chunky guitars and a punky tongued vocal spit from Patrick Stump that drips with attitude.

*Following the mighty ‘Waste Of Time‘, which was released earlier this summer, M.Ø has unveiled her latest offering, the Diplo produced ‘XXX 88’. The track is an amazing clash of pulsating, earth shattering beats, synths and customary horns intertwined and layered with M.Ø’s darkly gloomy yet pressing, explosive vocal styling. Absolutely gloriously stunning…

*Alexandra Burke has exclusively premiered some new material through the Daily Mail online site, ahead of it’s wider release on 1st September.

The EP comprising of six new tracks is the first material to be unleashed on the public since recently departing her major label deal with RCA. ‘#NewRules’ features a cover version of ‘Fix You’, originally by Coldplay as well as some urban beats and reflective adult MOR ballads which hint at the direction her third studio collection will take. Most impressively, it finds Alexandra in full, fine, strong voice, showcasing those vocals with supreme results.
