New Muzic Friday – 28/4

Katy Perry has released her second single Bon Appétit from her upcoming KP4. Bon Appétit is produced by Max Martin and features Migos. It’s probably the most urban track Katy has ever done but at the same time the production style is consistent with Chained To The Rhythm. It doesn’t sound like a Katy Perry song and doesn’t sound like a massive hit but it’s a good album track. Luckily a no-rap version is coming because the Migos feature is unnecessary.

Kygo has released First Time featuring Ellie Goulding. It’s a basic EDM track but so catchy you can’t help but like it. It’s no It Ain’t Me but could end up being a minor hit.

The Vamps have released the second single from their upcoming third album called Middle Of The Night. The Ed Drewett track is produced by Martin Jensen and continues on from the EDM/dubstep sound of their last single All Night. It seems The Vamps (or their label) are going the Maroon 5/OneRepublic route of releasing EDM tracks to score hits but forgetting that they’re supposed to be a band. As long as the music is as good as this though…

OneRepublic have released a new single called No Vacancy. Ryan Tedder explained the release on OneRepublic’s Facebook. The band plan to release new music at it’s made every few weeks instead of releasing music in the format of an album. No Vacancy is an EDM track originally intended for Selena Gomez but Ryan loved the track so much he kept it for OneRepublic. It’s produced by Stargate and it’s a lot better than most of Oh My My. It could potentially be huge.

Hailee Steinfeld has release Most Girls – another EDM Ryan Tedder track. Its lyrics let it down but it’s still a catchy song. It’s no Starving though.

Little Mix have released an acoustic version of No More Sad Songs – the third single to be taken from Glory Days. The girls sound incredible on it and Jesy’s middle 8 is back.

Lady Gaga – “The Cure” New Single

Published April 16th 2017
Filed under News,Reviews

Lady Gaga has released a new single called The Cure mid-Joanne campaign. She premiered the single last night live at Coachella.

The Cure is a tropical dance pop track which fits in with everything else on radio right now. Co-produced by Gaga herself with Nick Monson, it sounds nothing like anything on Joanne which is making everyone wonder what is this single for?

It can’t be a re-release as The Cure would completely ruin the vibe of Joanne. Maybe Gaga is intending on releasing an EDM album to accompany Joanne. She worked with RedOne during the Joanne sessions (one RedOne track made Joanne) and Bloodpop may not have just done Joanne-style tracks so there could be a whole other dance pop album ready to go.

Either way, The Cure might not be groundbreaking for Gaga but it’s ridiculously catchy and her vocal is the popiest she’s sounded since The Fame. This could be huge.

Steps – “You Make Me Whole”

Steps have released an instant-grat track from their upcoming album Tears On The Dancefloor called You Make Me Whole.

You Make Me Whole is an uptempo dance song and not exactly what you’d expect from Steps song but it’s very good. It starts off sounding a bit Early Winter by Gwen Stefani before exploding into an Alias banger by the chorus that sounds like Move On U vs. Young by The Saturdays and Tulisa.

Maybe this is the kind of sound Steps would’ve progressed to at some point earlier had the split never happened.

You Make Me Whole is so instant and catchy it should definitely be the second single. It could possibly fair better than Scared of The Dark which has done well considering how much streaming has effected the singles chart.

Steps – “Scared of The Dark” Video Premiere

Steps have released the music video for their comeback single Scared of The Dark taken from their forthcoming album Tears On The Dancefloor.

The video is shot against a green screen with some lens flare effects to try hide the fact that it was shot on a small budget. Even with the budget the video looks glossy and Steps look great in it. The video at times is reminiscent of the Up! video by The Saturdays. The video features a brand new Steps dance routine which already looks iconic.

Check out the Scared of The Dark video below:

Tears On The Dancefloor is available April 21st.
