Happiness

HURTS

‘Happiness’
The new album out September 6
Featuring first single ‘Better Than Love’

Our newest pop crush? Hurts. They have a stern, almost teutonic, arthouse look, but it’s mixed with pure Pet Shop Boys/Associates/Yazoo pop. With a bit of Donnie Darko thrown in. Hurts are Adam and Theo from Manchester. They met outside a nighclub while people they were with were involved in a punch up. Adam’s grandad was a wartime entertainer who played banjo for the Queen. And the extra reason we know we’re going to like them? They insisted on a clause in their record label contract that they could go to Eurovision Song Contest 2010.

Science & Faith

THE SCRIPT

‘Science & Faith’
The new album out September 13th
Featuring first single ‘For The First Time’

Dubliners Danny O’Donoghue, Mark Sheehan and Glen Power – otherwise known as The Script – are back with the follow up to 2008’s 1.8 million selling self-titled global smash of a debut. An addictive blend of hip hop rhythms, flowing melodies, sparkling hooks and poignant, story-spinning lyrics, with Danny’s mellifluous soulful vocals riding high over huge, anthemic choruses, ‘Science & Faith’ is far from a difficult second album.

The upcoming CD, being released by Sony Music on September 21, 2010, will feature soulful music from the 60’s and 70’s all with an underlying theme of awareness, engagement and consciousness— effectively telling listeners to Wake Up! The album is highlighted by familiar tracks like “Wholly Holy” by Marvin Gaye and “Little Ghetto Boy” by Donny Hathaway mixed with the more obscure selections of Baby Huey and the Babysitters’ “Hard Times,” and “Hang on in There” by Mike James Kirkland.

Record Collection

MARK RONSON

‘Record Collection’
The new album out September 23rd
Featuring first single ‘Bang Bang Bang’

‘Bang Bang Bang’ sees Mark Ronson doing what he does best – smashing disparate genres and artists into each other headfirst, before standing back and admiring the controlled, party-starting chaos left behind. Featuring the talents of Ronson’s old mucker, rapper Q-Tip, as well as vocals from MNDR, who moonlights as the Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ live keyboard player, the first single from the Mid-Atlantic mastermind’s new album ‘Record Collection’ – the follow up to ‘Version’, which went triple platinum in the UK – is a playground funk triumph.

SARA BAREILLES

‘Kaleidoscope Heart’
The new album out September 23rd
Featuring first single ‘King Of Anything’

Kaleidoscope Heart – which Sara wrote and the renowned Neal Avron produced – is the follow up to her massive Grammy nominated debut, Little Voice which has sold over 1 million copies worldwide. The first single, “King Of Anything” is currently at radio and garnering early critical acclaim from the press. Rolling Stone recently awarded the track a three star review stating “Like her 2007 hit “Love Song,” this single shows off Bareilles’ ability to tuck a heart-felt kiss off into a perky piano-pop tune.” Visit www.sarabmusic.com for more info on Sara!
