The song ‘Invincible’ by the singer Kelly Clarkson is now on the world wide web and available to purchase, even in the UK.

Co-written by Sia and produced by Jesse Shatkin it’s the first of five songs from new album ‘Piece By Piece’ to appear as a ‘buzz track’ (there will be one a day until Friday, with the album out on Monday).

‘Invincible’ sounds a lot like this:

Lovely, thank you.

TLC raised $430,000 via their album Kickstarter campaign thing http://www.popjustice.com/thenews/tlc-raised-430000-via-their-album-kickstarter-campaign-thing/134400/ http://www.popjustice.com/thenews/tlc-raised-430000-via-their-album-kickstarter-campaign-thing/134400/#comments Fri, 20 Feb 2015 10:35:09 +0000 http://www.popjustice.com/?p=134400 TLC

‘Gift Wrapped Kiss’ hitmakers TLC’s have raised $430,000 via their Kickstarter campaign to put towards recording their fifth and final album, you’ll be pleased to hear.

That final amount is nearly three times the initial goal of $150,000, a total which was actually passed within the first three days.

But what did T-Boz and Chilli have to say about it all?

This: “Thank you to everyone who has donated to our final album!! The amount doesn’t matter but the fact that you donated means the world to us.”

“The amount doesn’t matter” is a weird thing to say when it’s sort of the whole point of the exercise, but still.

Apparently the album will be executive produced by Ron Fair and will feature collaborations with Dallas Austin and Ne-Yo.

Dannii Minogue’s been working on new music and is playing a ‘gig’ in Australia next month http://www.popjustice.com/thenews/dannii-minogues-been-working-on-new-music-and-is-playing-a-gig-in-australia-next-month/134392/ http://www.popjustice.com/thenews/dannii-minogues-been-working-on-new-music-and-is-playing-a-gig-in-australia-next-month/134392/#comments Thu, 19 Feb 2015 11:36:07 +0000 http://www.popjustice.com/?p=134392 Dannii_Minogue

The Kylie Show actress Dannii Minogue has been talking about the new music she’s been making for the past two years, describing one duet as “badass funky”.

In an interview with News.com.au, she also revealed she’d be making her live comeback at next month’s Mardi Gras in Australia, an event she last had a singsong at 16 years ago.

“I’m sure there’s some people who don’t know I’m a singer,” she mused. “After sitting in the judging seat on X Factor this is a chance to show people this is what I’ve done for my whole life. There might be people who were there the last time I played Mardi Gras, but there might be people who’ll have never seen me perform. They might be going ‘What? She sings?’ so it’ll be interesting.”

Indeed it will.

Here’s what she said about the new music she’s been working on and how her son Ethan prevented the world from hearing it sooner:

“When I used to sing when Ethan was really little he’d go ‘Mum, stop’ so I just didn’t sing. He’s only heard my new stuff, he’s in the know with all that. There’s a duet I’ve written that is really badass funky that he loves.”

So there we have it.

BREAKING: Ciara thinks her new album is the best thing she’s ever done http://www.popjustice.com/thenews/breaking-ciara-thinks-her-new-album-is-the-best-thing-shes-ever-done/134389/ http://www.popjustice.com/thenews/breaking-ciara-thinks-her-new-album-is-the-best-thing-shes-ever-done/134389/#comments Thu, 19 Feb 2015 11:35:46 +0000 http://www.popjustice.com/?p=134389 Ciara

‘Like A Surgeon’ hitmaker Ciara’s been chatting away about her new album ‘#JACKIE’ and you’ll be surprised to learn that she thinks it’s her “best body of work”.

Having a chat with Fashion Week Daily chiefly about her famous designer friends, she was asked about what the new album was like.

Here’s what she said:

It’s my best body of work. I’m in the most clear place in my life, and that pours into the music.”

Great. But did you keep it small and tight in terms of the producers you used?

“I kept it small and tight in terms of producers; I wanted it to sound consistent. I worked with Dr Luke, Polow da Don, Harmony Samuels and a few other producers.”

She also revealed she’s just shot a video for ‘I Bet’ that involved things she’s always wanted to do in a video “style-wise and performance-wise”. That’s very nice Ciara BUT DOES IT FEATURE A MASSIVE TRUCK?

Sia’s already finished her new album and it’s called ‘This Is Acting’ http://www.popjustice.com/thenews/sias-already-finished-her-new-album-and-its-called-this-is-acting/134380/ http://www.popjustice.com/thenews/sias-already-finished-her-new-album-and-its-called-this-is-acting/134380/#comments Wed, 18 Feb 2015 09:06:08 +0000 http://www.popjustice.com/?p=134380 Sia

Pop’s premiere wall inspector Sia has finished her new album, ‘This Is Acting’, and apparently it’s “much more pop” than ‘1000 Forms Of Fear’.

Having a chat with the NME she said the following words about it all:

“I have a full album ready to go and it’s much more pop. I’m calling it ‘This Is Acting’ because they are songs I was writing for other people, so I didn’t go in thinking ‘this is something I would say’. It’s more like play-acting. It’s fun.”

She also said that she only really released ‘1000 Forms Of Fear’ because she needed to get out of her publishing deal.

“I was planning to be a pop song writer for other artists,” she mused. “But my publishing deal was as an artist so I had to put one more album out. I didn’t want to get famous so I kept all the songs I wanted and had a lot of fun making it.”

Madonna’s doing the Jonathan Ross chat show next week http://www.popjustice.com/thenews/madonnas-doing-the-jonathan-ross-chat-show-next-week/134372/ http://www.popjustice.com/thenews/madonnas-doing-the-jonathan-ross-chat-show-next-week/134372/#comments Tue, 17 Feb 2015 09:33:40 +0000 http://www.popjustice.com/?p=134372 Madonna

Madonna, the singer, has confirmed she will indeed by having a chat with old pal Jonathan Ross next weekend.

The ‘Girl Gone Wild’ hitmaker used her favourite medium Instagram to tell the world the news in the following manner:

That picture is taken from a famous 1992 interview during which she said the following things about ageism in the music industry:

There was also another interview in 2003 around the release of ‘American Life’.

Should be amusing.

UPDATE: It’s actually a special one-off version of the show dedicated to Madge. It will ‘air’ next month.

Pharrell’s releasing a children’s picture book inspired by ‘Happy’ later this year http://www.popjustice.com/thenews/pharrells-releasing-a-childrens-picture-book-inspired-by-happy-later-this-year/134370/ http://www.popjustice.com/thenews/pharrells-releasing-a-childrens-picture-book-inspired-by-happy-later-this-year/134370/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 http://www.popjustice.com/?p=134370 Pharrell

Cropped trouser enthusiast Pharrell Williams will release a children’s picture book based around his sleeper hit, ‘Happy’, it’s been announced.

The ‘Gust Of Wind’ hitmaker has ‘inked’ a deal with Putnam Books for Young Readers for four picture books with the first one called, you’ve got it, Happy.

The book will be out on September 22 and will just be a load of photographs of children from all over the world “celebrating what it means to be happy”.

Apparently the first order will be for 250,000 copies, which sounds optimistic but who knows.

As we no doubt don’t need to remind you, Pharrell released a book last year in association with Tipp-Ex and Bic pens that was basically blank. :(
