Wisely, Clean Bandit decided to team up again with Jess Glynne. I love Glynne’s voice and have no doubt without her vocals on “Rather Be,” the track wouldn’t have become that global smash that it was. “Real Love” is off Clean Bandit’s reissue of their debut album New Eyes. Currently, the track is only slated for European release.

As opposed to their “Rather Be” video which featured a Japanese fan becoming delirious and experiencing hallucinations, the group went with a decidedly more romantic vibe for their new visual. It features various couples kissing outside the El Rey Theatre at of one of their concerts while the band performs inside.

Check out the feel-good vid below. Jack Patterson directed the clip.

Days after teasing “Together” featuring Gwen Stefani, the Scottish DJ unveils another track from his forthcoming album Motion. Calvin Harris once again teams up with Ellie Goulding whom he previously collaborated with on the smash “I Need Your Love” off his smash LP 18 Months.

What’s his new track like? Truthfully, “Outside” could easily pass for “I Need Your Love 2.0.” The EDM track doesn’t sound the same but definitely has a similar vibe. I don’t blame Harris for going down a similar path. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. I will say though, it’s probably more pop-ish than the tracks Calvin has released off Motion thus far. Give it a listen below.

Someone’s firing on all cylinders. Gwen Stefani is definitely taking advantage of her exposure as a judge on The Voice. Collaborations with both Adam Levine and Calvin Harris on “My Heart Is Open” and “Together” respectively have been released. Now comes her first solo single since 2006′s The Sweet Escape. It’s about time. Love Gwen!!!

Baby Don’t Lie” surfaces online a day before it’s scheduled official release date. Is the lead single off her highly-anticipated third studio album worth the wait? I’m on the fence. It’s not the strongest comeback but it has grower potential. I could see this as a slow burn on both the charts and radio. The tribal-tinged track was written by Stefani with assistance from Noel Zancanella, Benny Blanco and OneRepublic’s frontman Ryan Tedder. Give it a listen below and weigh in afterward.

Calvin Harris’ forthcoming album Motion is shaping up to be another hit for the Scottish DJ. After his best-selling 18 Months, I didn’t think he could match it. That album spawned several smashes including “Sweet Nothing” and “I Need Your Love” featuring Florence Welch and Ellie Goulding respectively.

His new LP has already spawned UK charttoppers “Blame” and “Summer.” I fully expect this Gwen Stefani number to do some damage as well. Harris enlists the No Doubt frontwoman for “Together.”

He shared a preview of their collaboration on Instagram earlier today. Already, I’m loving it much more that Stefani’s duet with Adam Levine. Who else is ecstatic that Miss Gwen is back making music? Gwen FTW!!! Give “Together” a sample below.

Fergie, or a reasonable facsimile, sits down and shows off her scrapbooking skills in the lyric video for “L.A. Love (La La).”

The 39-year-old singer takes a trip down memory lane, recalling personal moments from her various excursions around the world. From glamorous photoshoots to live performances, she shares several highlights from her career. The clip is a solid way to reintroduce the Duchess back into the fold. Check out the cute vid below.

Have you warmed up to “L.A. Love (La La)” yet? Do you think it’s a solid comeback single? Sound off below.

Some longtime viewers of American Horror Story have taken issue with Ryan Murphy changing the show’s theme music for Freak Show. Turns out there’s a reason why.

Season 3 Voice standout Melanie Martinez released her debut EP earlier this year. One track featured on the well-received offering was “Carousel.” Being a fan of the show, Martinez reached out to the show’s producers about using her spooky gypsy-sounding track once she heard of the upcoming theme. A couple of days before the promo aired, the network finally reached out to her. Naturally, she was ecstatic “The whole thing was just crazy,” she told HuffPo.

Melanie just released the accompanying visual for “Carousel.” Naturally it’s set in a carnival environment filled with all things spooky. Directed by Adam Donald, Melanie chases a buff blond guy who ends up deceiving her. Though the clip and beat have an eerie feel, the lyrics are quite sad, comparing the search for true love to going round and round aimlessly on a carousel. Give the entertaining visual a watch below.

Idina Menzel Releases Trailer For New Christmas Album

In: Donovan, Music
idina-menzel-holiday-wishes

Idina Menzel releasing a Christmas album might be odd to some. After all, the 43-year-old entertainer’s parents divorced during the holidays and she’s Jewish. When asked about the latter by Time Magazine, she replied, if Babs can do it, so can she.

“Most of them were songs that I’ve always wanted to sing. “Do You Hear What I Hear?” is a song Whitney Houston sang back in the ‘80s. Her version is incredible. I’ve always loved that song. If Barbra Streisand can make a Christmas album, I can.” – Idina Menzel

Halloween hasn’t passed yet, but Holiday Wishes is already in stores. Even Menzel thinks it’s too early. Clearly her fans agree as well. It’s pacing to sell only around 18-21,000 copies in its first week of release. I don’t blame her label for jumping the gun though. Holiday-themed albums can be quite lucrative. And if done well, can generate revenue every year during the Yuletide season.

Idina takes on such classics like “All I Want For Christmas Is You,” “Do You Hear What I Hear,” and “Baby It’s Cold Outside” to name a few on the festive LP. Michael Buble duets with her on the later. Give the album teaser a listen below. If you love Idina’s voice, this is a must for this Christmas.

A grave wrong has finally been made right. When Clean Bandit revealed their latest collaboration, “Real Love,” with Jess Glynne, many, including myself, hoped it would be a cover of the classic Mary J. Blige track. Alas, it was an original composition. Thankfully, Glynne heard her fans’ outcry.

The 24-year-old English singer-songwriter delivers an acoustic cover of “Real Love” for BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge. Her gravely voice really shines during the performance. She does the What’s The 411? single justice. Mary would be proud. Give it a listen below.
