Banish those Monday blues and kick that monotony into place with the AMAZINGLY brilliant new video for ‘Big When I Was Little‘, which is the stunning new single from the mighty, stunning and tremendously ace Eliza Doolittle.
‘Big When I Was Little‘ is a gorgeously lush, carefree walk down memory lane, it also happens to be completely irresistible and rather impossible to stop singing once the infectious melody and sharp, well observed lyrical hooks have taken hold. The video, which premiered today is a glorious summertime vibe with inspired throwback dance freestylings and lighthearted antics and shenanigans. The clip was directed by James Copeman, who previously captured ‘Skinny Genes 2.0‘.
‘Big When I Was Little’ is backed by Eliza’s sublime solo piano rendition of ‘You And Me‘ and is released on 28th July. The single is ready and available to pre-order NOW from iTunes here. If you’re not a lover of Apple, try Amazon Music… pre-order it here.
We’re off to see Eliza’s secret gig for Appletiser on Thursday so keep your eyes peeled for a full report!
It has been (nearly, almost) three years since the extremely wonderful and completely incredible Eliza Doolittle released her joyous self-titled debut album and since single releases, promotional duties both here and abroad and sold-out headline tours were completed in 2011, it has been an agonising wait at times for new music. However, withdrawal was eased with thanks to a Twitter update here and there, a delightful free Christmas EP and the recent gigantic collaboration with Disclosure, which has almost made the wait for her return seem less painful.
Following the teasing sneak preview earlier this week, the full version of the new single ‘Big When I Was Little’, complete with fantastical lyric video has now been unveiled. ‘Big When I Was Little’ is all kinds of brilliant – it retains that effortlessly familiar, easy feel-good sound captured across her debut record but vamps it up so that this time the sound becomes more defined and pronounced… for instance, the beats are bolder, the horns are louder and the vocals are even more stunning and impressive.
‘Big When I Was Little’ sounds like a perfect summer day, the upbeat, carefree throwback styling evokes a rush of reminiscence that awakens and imbibes the spirit. Lyrically, it is smart and quirky with references to all things nineties such as Posh Spice, Nintendo, cassette singles and even the divine Ms. Lauryn Hill. Altogether, it is entirely playful enormously and hugely infectious – resistance is absolutely futile ESP within the refrain “like ‘Malcolm In The Middle’, that was big when I was little” which blissfully swirls around in the brain somewhat continuously.
Give it a go and revel in all its gloriousness…
As we mentioned the other day, ‘Big When I Was Little’ was co-written by Eliza alongside the mighty and formidable Wayne Hector and Steve Robson who amongst them have written and produced monster hits for the likes of Paloma Faith, Christina Aguilera, Honeyz, Five, Girls Aloud, Toni Braxton, Olly Murs, Def Leppard, James Morrison, Busted, Tina Turner, Lily Allen and Take That to name a very select few!
The gorgeous artwork for ‘Big When I Was Little’ appears above. The single is backed by Eliza’s stunning solo piano version of ‘You And Me’ and will be available to pre-order from 17th June ahead of its official release on 28th July.
Eliza will make her live return at a secret location in London on June 20th in partnership with Appletiser for which she is brand ambassador. Tickets are up for grabs here with the giveaway ending 15th June, so be sure to enter before then.
Hello everyone, APOLS for the briefness or lack of updates – this exam marking malarkey impedes the world of pop unfortunately! However, despite the fact these are probably old to the internet, here are some of the new video’s to singles that we’ve recently been enjoying very much indeed…
Firstly, Eliza Doolittle teased that she was on the set of a video shoot for her forthcoming single on Friday (31st May) and posted a picture from the shoot on her Twitter account! HOORAY – new music from Eliza…
And, this is what we know about the lead track from her forthcoming second album… the single is titled ‘Big When I Was Little’ and was co-written by Eliza alongside Wayne Hector who previously penned enormous hits for The Wanted, Olly Murs, Nicki Minaj and Girls Aloud, to name only a few. The track was produced by Steve Robson whose credentials are equally vast having worked with Paloma Faith, Christina Aguilera and Leona Lewis amongst many others.
Best of all, here is a teaser of what to expect from the single – complete AMAZINGNESS!!!
India.Arie – ‘Cocoa Butter’
The wondrously amazing and elegantly graceful India.Arie is back with a new single titled ‘Cocoa Butter‘ which is the first release for her forthcoming fifth studio album ‘Songversation’ which is available from 25th June.
Lyrically, the songs speaks of getting over a former love and embracing a new romance which has positive healings, just like the cocoa butter itself. The video for the song is a similarly positive, sensual and luxurious affair too…
Diana Vickers – ‘Cinderella’
‘Cinderella‘ is one mighty return and Ms Vickers makes a splash in the video for the lead track to be lifted from her forthcoming sophomore album ‘Music To Make Boys Cry’.
The video is a lavish affair in which Diana attends a modern day masked ball only to flirt outrageously with a rather handsome chap before it all gets a bit steamy at the end too… ooo’er! ‘Cinderella’ is released on 21st July.
Katy B – ‘What Love Is Made Of’
Katy has debuted the video for the first single from her forthcoming second studio album, ‘What Love Is Made Of‘ and it’s a gloriously upbeat and infectious track which now has an equally brilliant video to match. It’s a darkly gritty, fast and furious mix of street racing and street dancing – it’s all very modern isn’t it! The track itself is due for release on 7th July.
Over the last three days, Derry-Londonderry was host to Radio 1′s annual Big Weekend event.
Performances from the likes of The Saturdays, Conor Maynard, Biffy Clyro and Calvin Harris were enjoyed by the capacity crowds. Highlights from across the weekend included amazing sets from the likes of Paramore, 30 Seconds To Mars and Bruno Mars to name a few of the many acts on the bill.
Naturally, for us though, THE highlight of the weekend was when the beyond AMAZING Eliza Doolittle joined Disclosure for a performance of the hit single ‘You And Me’, which showcased some killer vocals from Eliza, of which you can see below if you missed it…
You can relive other highlights by visiting the Radio 1 Big Weekend page here.
It has taken weeks and miles to track down but here is the first soft drink we’ve bought purely on the basis that a popstar has been on the can since the Spice Girls endoresed Pepsi in 1997! As we previously mentioned, the amazing Eliza Doolittle is the brand ambassador for Appletiser and the can which features the image of her lovely face on limited edition cans is spectacularly exciting!
Big giant congrats to Disclosure, their latest single ‘You And Me’ featuring the beyond incredible and amazing Eliza Doolittle debuted at number 10 on the Official UK Singles Chart last Sunday. Since then, Eliza has re-worked the track into a simple heartfelt piano led version which is utterly sublime and completely gorgeous. Oh, *those* vocals – absolutely heavenly…
Here is the artwork for THE greatest single to be released so far in 2013… Disclosure featuring Eliza Doolittle - ‘You And Me’.
Here is the video for THE greatest single to be released so far in 2013… Disclosure featuring Eliza Doolittle - ‘You And Me’.
The track is AMAZINGNESS based on the fact Eliza Doolittle provides such an entrancing vocal performance but the video – nope, not so much unfortunately based on the fact there is ZERO Eliza Doolittle #sadface
Anyway, the track is still completely brilliant despite the small video oversight. ‘You And Me’ is available to download from 28th April – YAY!
HELL yes, yes, yes!!! Eliza Doolittle is BACK! The incredible and amazingly brilliant singer-songwriter features on the ridiculously outstandingly forthcoming single by Disclosure entitled ‘You And Me’.
‘You And Me’ is an edgy, moody, upbeat, bombastic garage house inspired track that bounces and pulsates throughout – the changes in tempo and pace creates a joyously irresistible listen. The melody is unstoppably infectious and Eliza’s vocal delivery is astoundingly exceptional as always, she sounds seductive and indomitable especially when she sings “it’s gonna be you and me, it’s gonna be everything you ever dreamed” during the chorus, plus the ad-libs Eliza delivers are some of her finest to date! ‘You And Me’ is bold excitingly fresh and unexpected – an absolutely fantastical collaboration!
‘You And Me’ is available to download from 28th April and is taken from Guy and Howard’s debut album ‘Settle’ which is scheduled for release on 3rd June.
