Mutya Keisha Siobhan have uploaded a 1:11 clip of their new single Flatline to their SoundCloud.

On first listen, Flatline doesn’t immediately sound like a single but it definitely sounds like a big song. The three voices sound incredible together. It makes listening to it so easy and relaxed which hopefully means the song will be very accessible for radio listeners.

Listen to the clip below:

There’s still no release date for the full thing but hopefully it’s very soon.

Kelly Clarkson – “Tie It Up” New Country Single

Published June 10th 2013
Filed under Reviews

tieitupKelly Clarkson premiered her new country single Tie It Up at the CMA Music Festival on Saturday.

While it’s not the kind of song you’d expect from Kelly, there’s something about it that sounds promising. The closest thing Kelly has done to Tie It Up would be Yeah from her album My December, although the former is much catchier.

Kelly also posted the single cover for Tie It Up on her WhoSay account which features Kelly in a wedding dress. It seems like maybe Kelly is just having fun with a single like this before her wedding. However, it’s strange that she’s premiering a new single right now when People Like Us is still being promoted.

Tie It Up has no release date yet but hopefully we’ll hear the studio version soon.

Miley Cyrus – “We Can’t Stop” Radio Premiere

Miley Cyrus just premiered her new single We Can’t Stop on Ryan Seacrest’s show. It’s produced by Mike WiLL Made It.

We Can’t Stop doesn’t sound anything like what I was expecting but there’s something about I like on first listen. I can see it being a grower though. It’s definitely a more mature sound for Miley.

The only thing I don’t like so far is the vocoded male voice talking over it.

Ed Drewett – “Undefeated” New Single

Published June 03rd 2013
Filed under Reviews

Ed Drewett has uploaded his new summer single Undefeated to SoundCloud. Previously, Ed uploaded an acoustic version of Undefeated as a teaser but as great as the acoustic version was, the studio version takes the song to a completely different level.

The acoustic version of Undefeated was more mellow whereas the studio version sounds anthemic and more feel-good. Undefeated sounds a lot more serious than the extremely catchy Drunk Dial, but it’s still full of hooks and has a bit more edge to it.

Hopefully Undefeated will become a hit and gives Ed the success he deserves as a solo artist.

Undefeated will be released to iTunes on July 14th.

Jessie J – “Wild” New Single

Published May 26th 2013

jessie-j-wild-coverJessie J’s new single Wild was released to iTunes worldwide. The video also leaked in low quality.

The full song isn’t as good as I was expecting. The acoustic version showed the song to have a lot of potential. The production on the studio version sounds a bit cheap and noisy and takes away from the very strong melodies which are more apparent in the acoustic version. Both Big Sean and Dizzee Rascal add nothing to the song. Dizzee Rascal’s part is way too long. The only saving grace is that the chorus manages to redeem the rest of the song’s messy production and with it being so catchy, it will be eaten up by radio.

Check out the audio stream of Wild below:

Wild is available now on iTunes.
