Watch: Ella Henderson performs brand new album track ‘Mirror Man’!

Ella Henderson is well on her way to becoming pop royalty these days and with the release of her (still amazing) debut album ‘Chapter One’ around the corner, the former X Factor star has gone and done a rather lovely performance to whet our appetite even further.

Ella paid a visit to the RAK Studio Sessions for a sultry rendition of kiss off anthem ‘Mirror Man’, which happens to be one of our fave tracks from the LP. Perfect song and perfect vocals. Well done, Hendo’!

Meghan Trainor covering Taylor Swift? Yes please!

It’s the mash up we didn’t even know we wanted… and it’s a mere 30 seconds long! Meghan Trainor recently stopped by a Sydney radio station for a quick chinwag and an impromptu cover of Tay Swizzle’s mega selling  ‘Shake It Off’, set to the tune of her own big hit ‘All About That Bass’. Obv’.

Despite no time to prep beforehand and the entire rendition taking all of about half a minute, Meghan still manages to make it a corker. What a woman.

The Ting Tings are back with a new song, album and tour.

Shut up and let us go! The Ting Tings, who knocked Madonna off the Number 1 spot in 2008 with ‘That’s Not My Name’, are back. Not only have they got a new album, ‘Super Critical’, coming out on October 27th, but they’ve got a tour coming up and a new song for you to get your ears around.

‘Do It Again’ is described as a ‘riff heavy euphoric number’ and from a first listen, that riff is darn catchy. It’s quite a restrained, lazy track compared to the balls out moments of their still brilliant first album ‘We Started Nothing’ – which is fine for the odd track or two – but ‘Sounds from Nowheresville’ was really boring. Hopefully Jules and Katie have got their pop spark back this time around and there are some big moments to compliment the laid-back sound of ‘Do It Again’. We’ll find out when the album drops October 27th.
