Rumours first started circulating in August that either Coldplay, Rihanna or the ‘This Is How We Do’ hitmaker were in the running for the coveted excuse to air a medley and it seems Perry was victorious.

Mind you, there’s no word from the NFL as to whether any of this is true and Billboard don’t even bother to make up some quotes about what the source said etc so who knows.

Apparently there will be no new Adele album in 2014 :( http://www.popjustice.com/thenews/apparently-there-will-be-no-new-adele-album-in-2014/131505/ http://www.popjustice.com/thenews/apparently-there-will-be-no-new-adele-album-in-2014/131505/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 http://www.popjustice.com/?p=131505 Adele-beige3-250x205In what may well be the first confirmed disaster of Q4, it’s been reported that there will be no new album by Adele in 2014.

In a report in The New York Times (as quoted here), the ‘Cold Shoulder’ hitmaker’s label XL Recordings are quoted as saying, “There will not be a further new release by Adele during 2014 and consequently there will be a fall in XL’s turnover and profits.”

Poor the music industry.

Sia’s been nominated for six ARIA Awards http://www.popjustice.com/thenews/sias-been-nominated-for-six-aria-awards/131455/ http://www.popjustice.com/thenews/sias-been-nominated-for-six-aria-awards/131455/#comments Wed, 08 Oct 2014 07:27:08 +0000 http://www.popjustice.com/?p=131455 siahairinspace

Fame hungry, spotlight-hogging singer of song Sia’s been nominated for six Australian Recording Industry Association Music Awards (or ARIA Awards)  in celebration of her general amazingness.

In more specific terms ‘1000 Forms Of Fear’ is up for Album Of The Year, Best Pop Release and, most importantly, Best Cover Art, while ‘Chandelier’ is nominated for Song Of The Year and the video will battle it out in the Best Video category.

(We realise that’s only five awards so she must also be nominated in some slightly boring category they don’t list on the main page, or someone can’t add up.)

Other people getting more than one nomination include 5 Seconds Of Summer and Iggy Azalea, who both have five.

The Best International Artist category includes all the usual suspects (plus Jason Derulo).

McBusted have announced details of their first single.

Those details are:

1. It’s called ‘Air Guitar’.

2. It’s out on November 23 on Island Records, but you’ll be able to pre-order it from midnight tonight.

3. That’s it.

Oh, here’s a clip.

As previously reported the band have been working with the likes of thingy out of Blink-182 and him off that other band on their album, which is due out later in Q4.

They’ve done a chat with The Sun about it but it’s behind a paywall so fuck that.

One Direction, Pharrell, Kylie and Lorde are releasing a song at midnight http://www.popjustice.com/thenews/one-direction-pharrell-kylie-and-lorde-are-releasing-a-song-at-midnight/131431/ http://www.popjustice.com/thenews/one-direction-pharrell-kylie-and-lorde-are-releasing-a-song-at-midnight/131431/#comments Tue, 07 Oct 2014 19:10:17 +0000 http://www.popjustice.com/?p=131431 one direction bbc thing

One Direction, Pharrell, Jake Bugg, Lorde, Paloma Faith and about 800 other people have all made a song together, and it’s out to buy in a few hours.

The song in question is a cover of The Beach Boys’ ‘God Only Knows’ (update: the video is now HERE) that the BBC have whacked together to promote their new BBC Music ‘initiative'; the song and accompanying video premiered across the whole of BBC TV and radio (except Radio 3 who were busy with some long-winded Brahms bollocks) at 8pm tonight.


With some degree of inevitability Brian May and Emeli Sandé are also involved.

It’s bad news for Heather Small but good news for needy children because all the lovely cash from the release (which is even coming out on a ‘compact disc’) will be going to Children In Need.


Produced by Ethan Johns, the track’s on sale at midnight tonight. It’s being released by Sony, and Universal, and Warners. Poor Domino. :(

Here, copied and pasted off a press release, is some more information about the participating artistes:

God Only Knows features the song’s original writer and creator, Brian Wilson, alongside 26 award-winning musicians including popular music stars Sir Elton John, One Direction, Stevie Wonder, Pharrell Williams, Jake Bugg, Lorde, Emeli Sandé, Chris Martin, Kylie Minogue, Paloma Faith, Sam Smith and Florence Welch; rock musicians Chrissie Hynde, Brian May and Dave Grohl; classical musicians Alison Balsom, Martin James Bartlett, Danielle de Niese and Nicola Benedetti; folk performer Eliza Carthy; Senegalese singer Baaba Maal; jazz performer Jamie Cullum; British Asian Music star Jaz Dhami; the BBC’s Zane Lowe, Lauren Laverne, Katie Derham, Gareth Malone and Jools Holland; with the youthful vocals of the Tees Valley Youth Choir and the BBC Concert Orchestra at its heart.

And here they all in one image.

bbc thing everyone

Nice of Sir Elton to turn up.

There are strings on the new Kelly Clarkson album http://www.popjustice.com/thenews/there-are-strings-on-the-new-kelly-clarkson-album/131376/ http://www.popjustice.com/thenews/there-are-strings-on-the-new-kelly-clarkson-album/131376/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 http://www.popjustice.com/?p=131376 Kelly ClarksonSORT OF BREAKING NEWS: One of the world’s best popstars Kelly Clarkson has some strings on her new album.

The news was leaked via a series of Instagram pictures from composer and arranger Joseph Trapanese, who’s previously worked on Clarkso’ Christmas opus, ‘Wrapped In Red’ with Greg Kurstin.

Ergo we’re assuming Greg Kurstin is involved in creating this new album too.

Here’s one of the pictures, which came with the following caption: “Amazing day recording orchestra for @kellyclarksonwith the brilliant team @satoshimusic@gzmusiccontracting @shakeyzpizza.”

Amazing day recording orchestra for @kellyclarkson with the brilliant team @satoshimusic @gzmusiccontracting @shakeyzpizza

Then there was this one:

Another shot from yesterday's orchestral session for @kellyclarkson. Thanks for the photo @susiebench!

And then the aforementioned @satohimusic popped this picture of a Kelly Clarkson ring binder thing on his Instagram.


Clarko’s said recently that the album will be due out next year.

Having previewed a bit of it in a ‘live’ scenario, David Guetta’s ‘Dangerous’ is now all over the internet in its full studio glory.

Featuring the vocal talents of your friend and ours Sam Martin, it’s not a typical Guetta banger and is, as you’re about to hear, all the better for that.


‘Dangerous’ is taken from the ‘Nation Rap’ hitmaker’s forthcoming album, ‘Listen’, which he finished just yesterday with the help of Emeli Sandé (!).

Very last day of studio before giving the album to press, @emelisande killed it!!!
