mikkyekko is ready to put an album out for the world to hear. FINALLY. Passing on an opportunity to immediately capitalise on the success of his Rihanna duet, “Stay” Ekko (29) instead opted to work on his music. Now, a couple of years later we have a new single (“Smile”) and a new album forthcoming (Time). All good things do come to those who wait.
Say Lou Lou…where have you been all my life? This set of twins from Sweden/Australia just dropped a FREE DOWNLOAD of “Instant Crush,” a cover of a song originally by Daft Punk/Julian Casablancas, beautifully reinterpreted in their dream pop style. The free download comes ahead of their new Lindstrøm-produced single “Games For Girls” (October 12) and debut album, Lucid Dreaming out in February.

Róisín Murphy posted a handwritten note yesterday (see TOP photo) to her Facebook page, describing her forthcoming third album. From what I gather, the album sounds like it has AMAZING potential. It’s been 7 years since Murphy last put out an album (2007’s Overpowered) so I think the fans are ready for something new. Fingers crossed!
Filling in my CD collection with some ESSENTIALS… First up? @jessieware #DEVOTION #gold Edition ✌️👑💰🔥🙌🎶🎵🎹🎻
Not sure why the #Harmonizers had a problem with @fifthharmony’s FIRST #REFLECTION cover art (top left). I think the girls look classy + sassy (which they are). It also fits in with the whole artwork campaign started with BO$$ (bottom center). New artwork (top right) is fine too…a little throwbackish (a la En Vogue + Exposé). Which one do you prefer? #FifthHarmony
