3rd September 2016

Hip Hop artist M.I.A has shared a new track ahead of her album launch, expected out on 9th September.

The song called ‘Freedun’ features former One Direction singer-songwriter Zayn Malik, who since leaving the band has forged his own career with the release of his debut album on 25th March 2016, one year to the day after he left One Direction.

His new style of adult themed alt-r&b with a twist of pop aligns well with M.I.A’s, despite her saying in an interview with Annie Mac that working together took them both a little out of their comfort zones.

“It sort of takes me out my comfort zone but kind of takes him out of his a little bit as well. It just worked out.”M.I.A, Interview with Annie Mac, BBC Radio 1

‘AIM’ will be M.I.A’s fifth studio album to date, ‘Freedun’ becoming the third taster of what’s to come on the record after previous releases ‘Bird Song’, produced by the artists previous partner Diplo, and ‘Go Off’, a collaboration between Skrillex and DJ Blaqstarr.

breaking-article-logo-transPop electronica duo Honne have announced a new UK tour. After the success of their latest release, the EP ‘Gone Are The Days’, they’ve spent their time creating a debut album called ‘Warm On A Cold Night’ – due for release on July 22nd 2016 on iTunes, CD and Vinyl. These guys are brilliant. Here’s what we had to say about them in our 2016 Predictions:

‘The pop electronica duo Andy and James, origins from Somerset Wiltshire. After two EPs in 2014, they released both Coastal and Over Lover EPs all on their own through Tatemae Recordings. The soulful vibes and soft tunes cradle the sharp lyrical universe. Radio 1’s Annie Mac is a big fan, and a quick listen to a couple of their songs proves just how creative freedom does not have to negate radio friendly tunes. Their new EP Gone Are The Days comes out at the end of January.’
