    Usher premieres video for ‘Scream’ http://www.wearepopslags.com/usher-premieres-video-for-scream/ http://www.wearepopslags.com/usher-premieres-video-for-scream/#comments Wed, 13 Jun 2012 11:51:39 +0000 Silvan http://www.wearepopslags.com/?p=21437 Usher‘s new single ‘Scream‘ already entered the UK charts at #5 last week, and he’s likely to continue his ascend fuelled by his one-off gig at London’s Hammersmith Apollo on Monday (full stream is available here) and the just premiered music video.

    The video includes footage shot at Fuerza Bruta in New York. Usher guest starred in the Off Broadway show for two performances back in April.


    Usher’s seventh studio album ‘Looking 4 Myself‘ is out now.

    Elsie – London Town (interactive video) http://www.wearepopslags.com/elsie-london-town-interactive-video/ http://www.wearepopslags.com/elsie-london-town-interactive-video/#comments Tue, 12 Jun 2012 18:57:51 +0000 Silvan http://www.wearepopslags.com/?p=21432 Liverpudlian songstress Elsie is back with a new single titled, ‘London Town‘. The song comes with an interactive YouTube video where you decide the outcome (you click on the red panels towards the end of each clip). The video takes a cheeky swipe at celebrity culture, from Paris Hilton, Nicki Minaj to TOWIE.

    In case you recognise the brass riff, it’s a sample from The Specials ‘A Message to You, Rudy’.

    Elsie’s next single – London Town – is available July 23 2012.

    Sky Ferreira – Red Lips (video) http://www.wearepopslags.com/sky-ferreira-red-lips-video/ http://www.wearepopslags.com/sky-ferreira-red-lips-video/#comments Tue, 12 Jun 2012 16:29:36 +0000 Silvan http://www.wearepopslags.com/?p=21421 Sky Ferreira has had a bit of a false start back in 2010. A single was released on each side of the Atlantic (One and Obsession), but both failed to do much.

    So here we are, second time around and Sky is back bolder, blonder and rockier. The sound of her debut album, titled ‘Wild At Heart’ has changed to a more ‘Blondie’ inspired sound, stepping away from electropop.

    The first track ‘Red Lips‘ was co-written by Garbage frontwoman Shirley Manson and produced by Greg Kurstin. The video was directed by Terry Richardson.

    Tori Amos to release new orchestral album: Gold Dust http://www.wearepopslags.com/tori-amos-to-release-new-orchestral-album-gold-dust/ http://www.wearepopslags.com/tori-amos-to-release-new-orchestral-album-gold-dust/#comments Tue, 12 Jun 2012 14:07:08 +0000 Silvan http://www.wearepopslags.com/?p=21402 October will see the release of a new Tori Amos compilation, titled ‘Gold Dust’. The songs on the record have all been hand-picked from her entire back catalogue by Tori and have been re-arranged and recorded with the Metropole Orchestra. Tori said about the album:

    “My relationship with all of these songs has changed over the years and they have changed my life. So it wasn’t just about capturing the past it was about realizing that the songs had a new narrative now – 10 or 20 years later than they did when I originally recorded them,”

    We presume the album will feature a reworked version of ‘Gold Dust’, from her 2002 album Scarlet’s Walk.

    In support of the album, Tori will also be doing a very limited number of orchestral shows.

    2012 TOUR DATES:
    Oct 1 — Rotterdam
    Oct 2 — Brussels
    Oct 13 — Warsaw

She tweeted:

    “Im a little nervous for this video to drop cause after it , Ill have to share whats next and ..its so honest ..dont know how u will take it”

    Until then, check out her latest video ‘Still Getting Younger‘.

    Maroon 5: Overexposed – album preview (snippets) http://www.wearepopslags.com/maroon-5-overexposed-album-preview-snippets/ http://www.wearepopslags.com/maroon-5-overexposed-album-preview-snippets/#comments Sun, 10 Jun 2012 12:21:02 +0000 Silvan http://www.wearepopslags.com/?p=21385 Maroon 5‘s new album ‘Overexposed‘ is out in two weeks (25th June), but a preview of the entire album has been made available on Amazon Germany.

    The album, which was executive produced by pop-meistro Max Martin, has been described as their most diverse and poppiest yet. The album features the Christina Aguilera collaboration ‘Moves Like Jagger‘ and the lead single, ‘Payphone‘, which gave the band the distinction of the best sales week for a single by a group on the American Billboard Charts, a record previously held by the Black Eyes Peas with ‘Boom Boom Pow’ back in 2009.

Sadly her appearance didn’t involve a swan dive, but did include a semi-shared interview with Katy Perry.

    Cheryl discussed the Queen’s Jubilee concert (check out her so-so performance with Gary Barlow here), last year’s X Factor US debacle and why she has dropped the ‘Cole’ bit (from her artwork, that is.)
