Not only did soulful British singer/songwriter Paloma Faith announce a brand new UK arena tour (kicking off in March) she will be putting out a special repacked version of her latest album, A Perfect Contradiction (November 3rd/RCA Records) preceded by the Klas Åhlund-produced/co-written single “Ready For The Good Life.” The album will contain 5 new songs in total, including 2 new Diane Warren contributions.
A Perfect Contradiction is out here in the States October 7th (Epic Records). Her U.S. tour kicks off September 26th in New York City. See her live if you haven’t already.
I have to admit…after hearing the new single from R&B singer/songwriter Kandance Springs, I’m finding myself a little bit smitten with her sound. While she only just premiered the latest song (“Love Got In The Way”) from her forthcoming debut EP last week, this 23 year-old from Nashville already has big things lined up this fall, including an appearance on the Late Show With David Letterman and an opening slot on Chance The Rapper's upcoming tour. For tour dates and more information, check out my blog:
I’m just gonna come right out and say it…I LOVE VITAMIN C! Her electro-pop, Blondie-sampling cover of “Last Nite” by The Strokes was underrated. Come back #VitaminC !!
Pretty obsessed with rising r&b superstar Tinashe these days. I’ve been vibing off of lead single “2 On” for MONTHS now and loving new single “Pretend” feat. A$AP ROCKY as well. Tinashe will release her debut album, AQUARIUS on October 7th (via rca). Get ready for tinashenow!
It was a good week for cover songs. Sam Smith and FKA Twigs both stopped by BBC Radio 1's Live Lounge to deliver STUNNING performances this week. First up, Smith took on Tracy Chapman's 1988 hit single, “Fast Car" giving it a sort of reggae vibe. Buzzy UK chanteuse FKA Twigs meanwhile covered Sam Smith’s own hit single, “Stay With Me" while Paloma Faith opted for an Etta James classic, singing "I’d Rather Go Blind" with a little help from singer/performer Ty Taylor.
