“If there’s anyone I’d like to be it’s Bridget - a wanton sex goddess with a very bad man between her thighs” - Olly Alexander
Meteorite is a brand new track and the first piece of new music for over a year to come from the platinum selling, Wembley headlining, radio dominating tour de force that is Years & Years. An out and out incandescent slice of brilliant pop it was written for the upcoming ‘Bridget Jones’s Baby’ Original Soundtrack. “We wanted to make something unashamedly disco and upbeat” says frontman Olly Alexander, “I can’t wait for people to hear it!”

From the very lowest moment in her life the extraordinarily talented Rebecca Ferguson has produced a breath taking new album, ‘Superwoman’. It is set to be released 14th October and her first single ‘Bones’ will be available from 2nd September (impacting 7th October).
Forged from heartbreak and a tale of lover’s abandonment combined with the bittersweet joy of giving birth to his child, Superwoman is infused with the strength of a woman who has finally taken control. It is the ultimate soundtrack for anyone who has ever had to build themselves back up after a heartbreak Rebecca is stronger, happier and more fearless than ever before.
Rebecca says of the album “This is honest and emotionally complex, I found strength and security writing this album” adding “It’s my most personal album ever and it’s brought me to a place in my life where I feel strong. I called it Superwoman because I learnt to embrace my vulnerability and accept it as a strength.”
‘Superwoman’ was produced by Troy Miller (Mark Ronson, Amy Winehouse), and features collaborators such as Jonny Lattimer (Ellie Goulding, James Bay), Negin Djafari (Miley Cyrus) and previous collaborator Eg White (Adele, Florence And The Machine, Sam Smith).
One of the most distinctive voices in pop, Rebecca has previously won critical acclaim for taking on the Billie Holiday songbook in previous release ‘Lady Sings The Blues’. The working class girl from Liverpool who battled so hard to make it as a singer has become one of the most exciting and compelling artists of our times. This is her fourth album, something not many ‘talent show’ contestants can say, but from the off there was always something intrinsically sincere about Rebecca’s delivery that set her apart from everyone else.
Since her break on X Factor six years ago, the once shy and insecure artist has gone on to win fans on both sides of the Atlantic, touring Britain, Europe and America winning plaudits from Adele as well as critics winning comparisons to her heroes Macy Gray and Aretha Franklin.
Rebecca is embarking on a tour later this year, dates are:
23/10 Venue Cymru, Llandudno
24/10 Manchester Bridgewater Hall
25/10 Glasgow Royal Concert Hall

Frank Iero and the Patience are set to release their second album 'Parachutes' on 28th October via Hassle Records. The record was produced by the legendary team that is Ross Robinson & Steve Evetts in California earlier this year. "It's a team that had been on my mind for a while. I heard stories about Ross that scared me to death... but honestly nothing could have prepared me for the reality of what it is like to work with him" says singer Frank Iero. "It was the most heartbreaking yet uplifting, depleting yet inspiring experience I have ever had. I found out things about myself and the songs I was writing that changed me forever. I am so proud of this record, it really took everything I had, and I know I could not have made it with anyone else."
As with any new album, the band has a chance to grow and evolve into something else, to challenge all perceptions and become a new version of what it once was, and as such comes a name change- Frank Iero and the Patience. "When I first started this journey I brought a band along that filled in the gaps of what I lacked. I was uncomfortable in my position so I brought a celebration or a celebration to distract from my awkwardness. Now in my life I need to learn how to slow down and love where I am. I need the patience to appreciate the now." says Frank Iero.
The album 'Parachutes' is 12 songs of controlled chaos which shows Frank Iero and the Patience at their absolute best.

A message from Frank Iero
"Parachutes are life saving devices. We rely on them to bring us back from the brink of death. Whether we fall or jump they are the only things keeping us alive. Such as with life, we are all just falling or plunging to an eventual end, but the love of my family and my ability to create art and music has always been my parachute.
The act of living can be random and strange, beautiful and ugly at the same time and the only thing that is undeniably certain is eventually we are all gonna hit the ground. Some of us plummet at an incredible rate and it’s over in a flash, but some of us get saved and are able to enjoy the view for a little while…. This album is one of my parachutes. xo frnk."
Frank Iero and Evan Nestor will play a very special acoustic show at All Saints Church in Kingston, later this week on Saturday 10th September which will be followed by a fan Q&A hosted by Matt Stocks.

Watch out for a major announcement next week
International icon, 5x Grammy Award nominee, and multi-platinum selling artist / songwriter / hit-maker Sia today releases a brand new single and video for "The Greatest." Click here to watch it now. The single was co-written by Sia and Greg Kurstin, and produced by Greg Kurstin. The video for "The Greatest" was co-directed by Sia and Daniel Askill, with choreography by Ryan Heffington and starring dancer Maddie Ziegler, the dream team who have collaborated on most of Sia's internet breaking smash videos including "Chandelier," "Elastic Heart," and "Cheap Thrills."
The release of "The Greatest" follows on the heels of Sia dominating the Billboard Hot 100 chart for 4 consecutive weeks at #1 with her smash hit "Cheap Thrills." This chart position also marks Sia's first ever Top 5 as a solo artist on the Billboard HOT 100 Chart and the song has dominated the global radio and streaming charts for most of this summer.
Sia will soon be embarking on her "Nostalgic For The Present US Tour" accompanied by dancer / muse / star of her videos Maddie Ziegler on all North American dates. The 22 city tour, promoted exclusively by Live Nation, kicks off on Sept. 29 in Seattle, WA's KeyArena, with special guest Miguel, and AlunaGeorge – including stops at Brooklyn's Barclays Center, Los Angeles' Hollywood Bowl, Chicago's United Center and Atlanta's Philips Arena. Since its announcement, the tour has been lauded as one of the hottest tickets for the fall with Rolling Stone saying it "promises to recreate some of the stunning visuals and choreography that the singer usually packs into her music videos and unique live performances" and Bustle raved it's "sure to be epic."
Sia released her new album "This Is Acting" (Monkey Puzzle Records/RCA Records) earlier this year to much critical acclaim. The New Yorker described it as "the Platonic ideal of a modern pop album," with rave reviews across the board from The New York Times, Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly, The Fader, and many more. The album debuted at #4 on the Billboard 200 Chart, peaked at #1 on the ITunes chart in over 50 countries, and charted Top 10 in 8 countries worldwide, including #1 in her native Australia and #3 in the UK.
