• Well hello there new Gypsy & The Cat single featuring legendary Australian singer songwriter Paul Kelly! Yes, the GATC chaps have returned with ‘Climb Into The Music’, their first official single in way too long.
Mister Kelly penned for the boys and, naturally, they wanted to ensure that he also appeared on the song in a vocal capacity. The single (listen HERE) is available now.
• Universal Music has confirmed a new single from former ‘The Voice’ winner Karise Eden. The next to be lifted from the husky-voiced performer’s album ‘Things I’ve Done’ is ‘Loneliness’ and it’s one of a few new tunes doing the rounds at Aussie media in this short post-Easter break week.
• Also doing the rounds at this stage are Tori Kelly’s aforementioned ‘Nobody Love’, Catherine Britt’s ‘Boneshaker’ (the title track from her forthcoming LP) and Tame Impala’s newbie ”Cause I’m A Man’. We’ll bring you a more comprehensive wrap of the new tunes on our FACEBOOK page tomorrow.
• UK starlet Jess Glynne sure is doing something right with her breakout solo single ‘Hold My Hand’. Not only did she debut in the No.1 spot on last week’s British singles chart, she’s only gone and held onto top position for a second successive week. Not even the collective might of Ed Sheeran and Rudimental (‘Bloodstream’) could displace her; that single bullets from No.26 to No.2. Sia scores herself another top ten UK smash with ‘Elastic Heart’, which improves from No.23 to No.10.
• If you want proof that The Prodigy is still incredibly relevant in the music sphere, check out their No.1 debut on this week’s UK albums chart with their latest effort, ‘The Day Is My Enemy’. That said, the band didn’t have too many enemies this week… the closest debut came down in the No.6 position from Sufjan Stevens’ ‘Carrie & Lowell’. Circa Waves’ ‘Young Chasers’ is new at No.10.
in the No.1 position with his debut long player ‘Chaos And The Calm’. Sam Smith’s still hanging around the No.2 position, Seasick Steve’s ‘Sonic Soul Surfer’ debuts at No.4, Kendrick Lamar’s album drops from one to five and further top ten debuts come from Laura Marling’s ‘Short Movie’ at No.7 and Cribs’ ‘For All My Sisters’ at No.9. Melbourne starlet Courtney Barnett’s LP ‘Sometimes I Sit And Think and Sometimes I Just Sit’ premieres at a very respectable No.16 and Kylie’s ‘Kiss Me Once : Live At The SSE Hydro’ debuts at No.26.
