Music: New releases

Music: New releases


The Australian singer-songwriter has penned songs for Rihanna, Katy Perry, Britney Spears and Beyonce but this time, she's being self-centred - and for good reason.

Sia's own track Chandelier is reminiscent of Rihanna as she takes on a little bit of RiRi's trademark Bajan twang. It sounds like it'll make its way to the charts real soon.


If breaking Michael Jackson's UK chart record with his last full-length album 18 Months has resulted in any added pressure, Scottish DJ-singer-songwriter Calvin Harris isn't letting it show.

He returns with his new party single, which doesn't have any extensive lyrical meat. But it's euphoric and sets you feeling charged for a head-bopping summer.


A previously unheard track from the US pop star made its way online last weekend.

Brooklyn Nights, a pop ballad that has Mother Monster singing about a failed relationship, was allegedly meant to be included in her latest album Artpop but didn't make the cut.

It's clear why - it seems a little off, as if certain parts need some speeding up. Definitely not a great fit with Gaga's image.
