Today, we get to check out Ellie Goulding’s contribution to the Fifty Shades Of Grey soundtrack, in the form of the sultry, orchestraic tune ‘Love Me Like You Do’. Check it out above (and preorder the track on iTunes, released 15th February).
Gwen Stefani and Pharrell are back with a new collaboration titled ‘Shine’, which was written for (the American release of) the film Paddington Bear. Check it out below.
If you haven’t heard/seen it yet, you can check out their other recent release — Stefani’s ‘Spark The Fire’ — here.
The world rejoices as Pharrell Williams, Chad Hugo and Shay Haley reunite once again at N.E.R.D. — and all thanks to a cartoon.
Perhaps looks to repeat the success Pharrell received with ‘Happy’ (which originally appeared on the soundtrack to the animated film Despicable Me 2), the three have provided the new song ‘Squeeze Me’ to the forthcoming film The SpongeBob Movie: Sponge Out of Water; both the track (which you can stream below) and the film are set to be released next February.
Now if we could just get a proper follow-up to Nothing…
For his next single, Mark Ronson switches from old-school Funk to, well, old-school Rock with ‘Daffodils’, which features Kevin Parker from Tame Impala. Taken from Ronson’s forthcoming album Uptown Special, released 19th January (preorder on iTunes).
Check out ‘Daffodils’ below.
When we saw this track, we didn’t really expect to hear much in the form of good music; surprisingly, ILOVEMAKONNEN’s collaboration with Mike WiLL Made It somehow works — so well in fact, that the off-kilter new single could be the proper follow-up to the hit tune ‘Tuesday’.
Check it out and let us know your thoughts…if you’re a fan, you’re going to have to head over to American iTunes to lock in the new self-titled EP that houses ‘Swerve’.
Charli XCX is preparing to release her follow-up to last year’s True Romance — titled Sucker — and is allowing fans to stream the album in it’s entirety, courtesy of iTunes Radio. The new project sees her working with the likes of Weezer’s Rivers Cuomo, Vampire Weekend’s Rostam Batmanglij, Ariel Rechtshaid, Steve Mac and Greg Kurstin….we’ve also included the full tracklisting below.
Enjoy the stream by using the below link and be on the lookout for Sucker when it’s released 26th January via Neon Gold/Atlantic.
