Cheryl Cole | The Flood

I missed this one as I was having a break when it was premiered but here it is now anyway for all you Cheryl Cole fans. The Flood is set to be the second single from her new album “Messy Little Raindrops” which is out now!

The video was filmed against the dramatic backdrop of white cliffs on England’s south coast. In the video , you see Cheryl ditching the glitzy glamorous outfits and energetic dance routines and showing off a more vulnerable side insteadCole is seen in the video alone in a remote house, overlooking the stormy ocean with the white cliffs of England’s south coast in the distance.


The Flood is big  musical change for Cheryl, as she spends the video walking the shores alone, and in one scene, is seen tossing and turning in bed, as the lyrics suggest her lover has drowned in a shipwreck where she couldn’t save him. Cole also dons a gorgeous green gown in another part of the video, as she appears to be portraying a mermaid at sea.

Visually it’s definitely Cheryl Cole’s best efforts yet, it’s a stunning visual piece.


The song is not due for release until 3rd January! But I’m betting on another chart success for the beautiful Cheryl Cole!

 

2 Members of Girls Aloud unveil their album cover art pictures…

So then its time for the two members of Girls Aloud to launch their albums and so fittingly the cover art pictures have been released.Check them both out below….!

Cheryl Cole shows off her sultry side on the cover of her new album, Messy Little Raindrops! Messy Little Raindrops hits shelves next month!

Cheryl Cole revealed the artwork for her new album “Messy Little Raindrops” and now its the turn of fellow Girls Aloud member Nadine Coyle with her album “Insatiable!" The artwork for Nadine’s debut record is probably quite familiar to you all, as it has been used widely for the promo of Nadine’s single and album. However the image of Nadine is now on a pink background, alongside some fancy fonts.

What do you think?  Is it better than Cheryl’s offering or does the X Factor judge’s cover art get your vote.…? You decide!

Check the tracklisting out for Messy Little Raindrops.. Cheryl Cole’s anticipated new album….

Its been a bit of a controversial past week for Cheryl hasn’t it? Gamu gate has completely swept the nation and shows no sign of slowing down. Did Cheryl make the right choice? Hmm.. i wonder. Anyway on to the music.

Do not ask me how but somehow the multi-talented and beautiful Cheryl Cole has managed to juggle her X Factor judging responsibilities with divorcing her cheating husband and that extremely nasty bout of malaria and finish the production of her sophomore album all in time for that time of year again , Yes it’s that “performing her latest single on X Factor‘s Sunday night results show…” time of year again. Her commitment, work rate and desire to complete the album is phenomenal when you consider what’s she gone through recently!

Her latest album is to be called Messy Little Raindrops. So yeah, the track list for Cheryl’s album, You can take a look below..

  1. Promise This
  2. The Flood
  3. Yeah Yeah (feat. Travie McCoy)
  4. Better To Lie (feat. August Rigo)
  5. Everybody, Everyone (feat. Dizzee Rascal)
  6. Raindrops
  7. Cold Heart
  8. Hummingbird
  9. Amnesia
  10. Happy Tears
  11. Waiting

The single after ‘Promise This’ will be an enormo-ballad called ‘The Flood’, a massive, strong-laden, Christmassy tear-jerker about ‘wreckage’, ‘drowning’ and ‘natural disaster love… Sounds exciting right?

The hook-up with Travie McCoy is very of-the-moment, considering the impressive year Travis has had with his hit single “Billonaire”, I definitely can’t wait to get a listen!!! Cheryl has also recorded a duet with recently turned reality tv star judge Dizzee Rascal, that track is titled “Everybody , Everyone”. The album is to be released on 1st November 2010, preceded by the lead single Promise This. Looking forward to this album…

New Video : Cheryl Cole with her beautiful new video for “Promise This”!!

That bizarre start to the song is turning into a bit of genius feature, And it’s definitely stuck in my head. Damn you Ms Cole! Does anyone else find themselves repeatedly chanting ‘Alouette, alouette’ after hearing it?  The music video, which premiered recently on ITV 2, is absolutely stunning/beautiful/amazing/ So many similar adjectives could describe the clip . The Sophie Muller-directed clip sees the X Factor judge striking some ballerina poses in front of a wind machine and generally looking very beautiful!!!! Nothing different there then. I was captivated watching!

The Wayne Wilkinsproduced track serves as the first official single from Cheryl’s upcoming sophomore album which is due for a release on November 1st.

I love how everyone is changing their opinions slowly about this track , some were disappointed initially but it’s now slowly hitting them in their face how much of a genius pop song from Cheryl Cole!!!

Promise This will be released on October 24th, followed by the sophomore album, Messy Little Raindrops in November. Could there be a little chart battle brewing amongst Girls Aloud members?

New Music : Cheryl Cole ‘Promise This’ In Full!

Promise This combines an upbeat bass line with Cole’s gentle lyrics about love. Produced by Wayne Wilkins, the man responsible for none other than Fight For This Love, why change a formula that worked so well right? Promise This is a song with a lot  more dance filled influence than the singer’s usual R’n’B styled songs which is obviously influenced by the music culture today!

I don’t think it’s as good as Fight For This Love but its a good effort nonetheless! Will probably be enough to ensure Chezza another hit single!

As the first single to be released from her forthcoming album, Promise This is sure to follow in the successful footsteps of Miss Cole’s previous succesful singles “Fight For This Love” & Parachutes”.

Promise This is taken from Cheryl Cole’s upcoming album due for release November 1st. The album features production credits from Will I Am, JR Rotem and Starmith. Promise This will be released through Polydor Records on October 24th, but tune in to ITV2 this Saturday at 9.45pm after X Factor for the very first viewing of the brand new video!

There are some pictures below of stills from the video shoot itself!

FULL Track Alert : Nadine Coyle – Insatiable!


So finally everyone has heard the full 3 minutes and 12 single first effort from the beautiful Nadine Coyle. As I said previously the snippet released last week was very promising and gave us a glimpse of what to expect. It showed that Nadine‘s amazing vocals were still ever-present and I thought it could be a lovely little pop number for her debut!

So when the full track premiered I wasnt disappointed and I don’t think many of Nudeen‘s fans were either. The track is nothing like what seems to be on non stop repeat on the radio these days which is a welcome change.I dont think I could imagine her doing anything other than pop if im honest! Nadine puts on a big brassy like production but relies on her killer vocals to make this song a hit! As i said previously this is a song which explores lots of different genres but will still slot firmly into today’s music climate!

All in all a great competnet solo effort from the ex Girls Aloud member (“If you believe tabloid rumours”)

Nadine’s unleashed her track.. Cheryl’s to follow Tuesday! Nice little battle brewing!

Preview of Cheryl Cole’s brand new single “Promise This”!

Thought I couldn’t blog about Nadine and not Cheryl so here it is!

According to a tweet from songwriter Chris Jackson, Cheryl Cole‘s camp has selected “Promise This” as the lead single from her as-of-yet untitled sophomore album, which is currently expected out sometime either later this year or early next.

Jackson also confirmed that the track was produced by Wayne Wilkins and penned by both himself and fellow writer, Priscilla Renea.

Wilkins, who is a part of the songwriting team The Runaways, produced Cole’s “Fight For This Love,” as well as some other incredible songs including Keri Hilson‘s “Energy” and Michelle Williams‘ “We Break The Dawn.” In other words: Yes this is going to be another #1 smash for Ms. Cheryl Tweedy. “Promise This”  has already had some glowing praise amongst supporters! Its only 40 seconds long but you get the feeling Cheryl is certainly stepping up her game for her second album & with direct competition from fellow Girls Aloud member Nadine Coyle , she’s gonna need a big hit on her hands right?


OK so what about the track itself? – Cheryl begins with a fast-paced take on the classic French children’s song, “Alouette.” I myself had never heard of this french children’s song so I took to Wikipedia to help me out a tad! Wikipedia tells me the song is about “plucking the feathers off a skylark.” Pretty bizarre feature though that’s for sure! Some might say inspired , some would say what the hell? Hmm we’ll reserve opinion for now. The beat can so far be described as a sort of  ‘Spacey Pop/Electro/R&B sound .’ The synths do the job brilliantly on this fast paced song.My favourite part of the preview is the piano filled chous with Cheryl singing over it, sounds gorgeous!  Pretty deep lyric and theme wise too. “Promise this, if I die before I wake…” I wonder what comes next?

I Can’t Wait!!!

Meanwhile, the 27-year-old popstar’s new music video is set to be directed by Sophie Muller, who has worked with Beyonce, Coldplay, Gwen Stefani and Kings Of Leon to name a few.

Cheryl was seen hitting the dance studio in Los Angeles yesterday where she’s been rehearsing her moves and is set to film the clip later this week, The Sun reported. Despite her new single’s title being revealed, the name of her new album is still unknown!

Music News : Labrinth Signs To Simon Cowell’s Record Company..

Producer and singer Labrinth today announced he has signed a recording deal with Simon Cowell’s Syco record label. In addition, the 21 year-old from Hackney also inked a label deal under the guise of Odd Child/ Syco, through which he and his manager, Marc Williams, will discover and nurture new talent.

Lab is the first artist of his kind to sign to Syco, which houses the likes of Leona Lewis, Susan Boyle, Il Divo and Westlife. It is also the first time in 6 years Syco have signed an artist unrelated to their TV platforms. This marks an exciting time not only for the super-talented superstar-in-waiting, but also for the UK urban scene as a whole.

“This is a crucial moment in my career, I’ve always been an ambitious and driven person and Simon has given me a bigger playing field,” said Labrinth of the signing. “I’m gonna show Uncle Sy a whole new world!”

It’s already been an incredible year for Lab, who celebrated a No.1 single with Tinie Tempah’s Pass Out back in March, while this week the pair hit No.2 with Frisky. Both tracks, produced by Lab, also feature his vocals.

Labrinth’s first single will be the defiantly original, feel-good, Let The Sunshine, due to be released Summer 2010. An album will follow, and meanwhile Labrinth will also be concentrating on finding and nurturing new talent for his Odd Child/ Syco imprint.

A big congrats to Lab and his management team for such an incredible deal. We look forward to hearing the results of the signing over the summer. At the moment the talented producer is working on tracks for JLS and Pixie Lott and has future projects in the works with Jay-Z, Rihanna and Cheryl Cole. Also watch for one of his tracks on Professor Green’s forthcoming album, Alive Till I’m Dead.

Here’s Lab and Tinie performing Frisky on BBC 1’s Live Lounge earlier this week.
