Sophie Ellis-Bextor Working On New Album  


Sophie Ellis-Bextor has said she would like to release some new material before the year is out.

Speaking to, she said "The album's pretty much done - we've got about three quarters of the way through it. I was supposed to have finished it earlier in the year but then I had my baby so my schedule changed somewhat."

Speaking about the direction of the record, she added "If anything the album's going to be a bit more dance and a bit more electro. In the past my albums have featured quite a broad range of genres a bit of indie, a bit of electro but this one definitely feels like it's more dance-centric. I've done tracks with Calvin Harris, Metronomy and Liam from the Sneaker Pimps, which is maybe why!"

If "Heartbreak (Make Me a Dancer) " is an indication of what's coming up I'm really looking forward to the new album!

Just Jack - The Day I Died  


Just Jack is one of my favourite male artists because of his unique style and lyrics so I'm very happy that he's got a new video out and a new album on the way.

With a little help from Elton John, Just Jack has hooked up with actor James Nesbitt for the video of his stunning new single "The Day I Died", which was filmed in East London last week.

Elton adopted the role of ‘Casting Director’ for the video after listening to the sentiments of the track, Elton decided that James Nesbitt was the only man for the role.

Jack himself makes a cameo in the video as a paramedic for the finale of the cinematic video.

“The Day I Died”, out August 17, 2009 is Just Jack’s second single from his new album ‘All Night Cinema' to be released August 24th.

Little Boots - Remedy  


Brand video by Little Boots!!

It's for "Remedy" the second single from her debut album 'Hands'. Not my pick for the second single, I would've gone with "Meddle" or "Love Kills" but in my eyes Little Boots can do no wrong. Loving the video, totally suits her style.

Unfortunately the album is not currently available in North America so you'll have to get creative to get it...

Little Boots is also currently on tour and I'll be catching her in Toronto on September 19. Visit her official website to learn more about her and to get her tour dates near you.

Madonna To Appear On X Factor?  


According to reports Madonna is currently in talks to appear on the UK's X Factor talent show later this year.

Last year Beyonce's duet with eventual winner Alexander Burke drew 15 million viewers and it's likely that she will return for this year's show.

Simon Cowell won't stop there as he is keen to sign up more big names for this year's show.

Other stars being lined up to perform include Lady GaGa and Rihanna.

An insider told The Sun: "The last series proved anything is possible when Beyonce performed with Alex. The final got 15million viewers and that is enough to entice the biggest stars on to our stage.

"This year is going to be bigger than ever - we are planning to get the best names in music. Madonna and Robbie (Williams) would be sensational."

Florence & The Machine - Rabbit Heart (Raise It Up)  


There's this new artist I discovered recently and I absolutely love her sound.

She goes by the name of Florence & The Machine and you can watch the video for "Rabbit Heart (Raise It Up)" the fourth single from her debut album 'Lungs' above.

Her soaring, epic vocals, quirky melodies and self-contained musical world have already won her the 2009 Critics Choice Award at the Brits. Her debut album came out today it's full of beautiful sounds. If you like Imogen Heap and Bjork you'll definitely love Florence.

On her official site the album is described as made of harps, choirs, drums, elevator shafts, bits of metal, love, death, fireworks, string quartets, stamping, sighing, strange electronic wailing, lambs, lions, sick, broken glass, blood, moon, stars, drink, coffins, teeth, water, wedding dresses.. and the silences in between. The songs are full of Gothic imagery, of fairytale flights of fantasy, and although much has been read into her lyrics, Florence says it’s usually simple. “Everything is about boys!” she laughs. “The whole album is about love – and pain. People see my lyrics as crazy, but to me it’s an honest, heartfelt album. I didn't set out to be wacky. I just want it to be emotive.”

Get the single and the two CD album on iTunes now!
