Ellie Goulding, Chromeo, Haim, A$AP Ferg, Bryan Ferry, DJ Falcon and many others will also appear on the first day.

Katy Perry's 'Roar' Is Too Powerful To Keep Off The Number One Spot


Katy Perry AlunaGeorge Ellie Goulding Robin Thicke

Katy Perry is officially the UK's number one artist, scoring her fourth UK number one single with her comeback track 'Roar' - the first single from her upcoming third album, Prism. The single knocked Ellie Goulding's 'Burn' from the number one spot after three weeks as the UK's most popular single, having sold 179,500 copies in the last seven days alone, a figure that makes 'Roar' Katy's fastest selling single in the UK to date.

Radio 1’s Official Chart Show DJ Jameela Jamil revealed that Katy has scored another No. 1 during her show on Sunday, 8 September, and spoke briefly to Katy about her success and gave the 'California Girls' singer the chance to giving a gushing acceptance speech to thank the UK public for buying her latest single in their droves. The single is also number one in her native USA, where it knocked Robin Thicke off his perch after 12 long weeks atop the Billboard Hot 200.

Katy Perry Races To The No. 1 Spot On The ITunes Chart With Early Release Of 'Roar'


Katy Perry Ellie Goulding

Katy Perry's comeback may be more eagerly anticipated than we first thought, as her comeback single 'Roar' needed only a few hours to race all the way to the top of the iTunes chart when it was release on Sunday (1 September). The single was actually released earlier than expected, a full week in fact, as Perry apparently couldn't wait to bring out her new single any longer.

Katy's comeback single tasted immediate success when it was released early

The first single from her strangely titled upcoming third album Prism, the unexpected early release did the trick for Perry as she watched the song storm the iTunes chart and knock Ellie Goulding's 'Burn' from the number one spot. Still, she may have stormed the iTunes chart, but Perry was unable to knock Ellie Goulding from the top of the Official UK Singles chart, where she managed to stay for a third successive week on Sunday (1 September). Given the lateness of it's release, we doubt whether Katy was banking on her single doing so well in the first place, so she can probably look forward to battling for the top spot during next week's chart countdown.

Ellie Goulding has beaten off competition from her trans-Atlantic rivals to remain at the number one spot on the UK Singles Chart for a third successive week, with her song 'Burn.' The single, Ellie's first ever number one, first entered the chart a month ago and soon knocked Miley Cyrus' 'We Can't Stop' from the No. 1 spot, where it has stayed for yet another week.

A week earlier that planned, Katy Perry has released the first single from her upcoming album, Prism.

On Her Third Week At The Top Of UK Charts, Ellie Goulding Announces First Arena Tour


Ellie Goulding

Ellie Goulding, the 'Starry Eyed' singer who has enjoyed quite a lot of success in recent years as a staple in everyone’s private playlists, has finally landed her first UK number one and seems to be sticking to her guns this week. Goulding is poised to top the chart again this week with her single 'Burn.' 'Burn' is a the flagship track of Halcyon Days, a more comprehensive repackaging of her sophomore effort, Halcyon.

Goulding is no stranger to the festival circuit.

The singer’s unique vocal abilities in 'Burn' once again beat out Avicii’s 'Wake Me Up' to the top. According to Entertainmentwise, only 4,500 individual sales separate the two. 'Wake Me Up' spent another three weeks on top earlier this year, before being bumped from Number 1 by Miley Cyrus’s controversial party anthem 'We Can’t Stop.'

Solo singer Ellie Goulding has snatched the week's top track yet again from the claws of rivals with lead single 'Burn' from her upcoming album, Halcyon Days.

BBC Radio 1's Big Weekend was just that - a BIG weekend! With a huge range of hit artists, the radio station left no genre uncovered over the Spring Bank Holiday weekend (May 24th - 26th 2013).

Day 1 saw performances from Dizzee Rascal as he promotes his upcoming fifth album due out later in the year; Rudimental, whose debut album 'Home' has had some remarkable reviews and a number one spot on the UK album chart; Rita Ora who is also working on a new album; and her platinum selling boyfriend Calvin Harris. Saturday brought in an equally impressive line-up with Ellie Goulding who is in the UK before she embarks on a lengthy US tour later in the summer; The Saturdays minus Rochelle Humes who is still recovering from the birth of her first baby Alaia-Mai; and Iggy Azalea whose debut album release is imminent. As for day 3, it certainly wasn't a day of rest as hitting the stage in Derry, Northern Ireland were alt-rock threesome Paramore, BRIT award nominated Jessie Ware and Grammy winning Bruno Mars who's set to kick off a major world tour in the summer spanning through 'til March 2014.

Calvin Harris Left Soaked By Drink-Hurling Fan At London Show


Calvin Harris Ellie Goulding Michael Jackson

Calvin Harris was given an almighty soaking by a member of the audience at this show at London's Project Club at the weekend. The Scottish DJ was 30 minutes into a planned hour long set when he was given a watering by a fan who got a little excited. Ever the professional, Harris stuck up two fingers, downed a shot, and continued with his set which ended up being four hours long.

A club source said: "Calvin took it all in his stride. He even joked that next time he DJs he'll wear waterproofs. The culprit was dealt with very quickly and 95 per cent of the clubbers didn't even notice. Calvin was a pro and carried on unphased and ended up DJing for extra time when a lot of lesser performers would have stormed off." It's probably not difficult for Harris to keep an audience on the dancefloor for four hours - his latest album 18 months is packed with chart hits. I Need Your Love, featuring Ellie Goulding, has become the eighth top ten track from the album. It means Harris now holds the record, overtaking Michael Jackson who scored seven Top 10's from his Dangerous record.

Harris is about to take off to the U.S for a handful of shows, before heading back to Europe for the summer. He'll play multiple shows in Ibiza and Mallorca before returning to the UK for a number of festivals including Oxegen and V Festival.

Calvin Harris Ellie Goulding

Calvin Harris' latest track, 'I Need Your Love', featuring singer Ellie Goulding, climbed up to number seven on the Official Chart at the weekend and while his continued run of form in the charts is impressive, the success of this particular song was extra special. With his latest chart entry, the DJ and producer from Dumfries, Scotland became the first artist ever to have eight top 10 hits in the UK from one studio album, 18 Months.

Daft Punk Get Lucky

A Week in Videos... Undoubtedly the most eagerly-anticipated video of the week comes from Daft Punk, who return to the scene with ‘Get Lucky.’ Featuring Pharrell on vocals and the legend that is Nile Rogers on guitar, the track has already broken daily play records on Spotify and quickly became one of the most talked-about tracks online. A classic in the making, Roger’s distinctive guitar sound lends the track an authentic disco edge.

Heavy on the expletives, low on production costs, this Frank Turner video for ‘Plain Sailing Weather’ sees the angry troubadour continuing the confessional vibes of his last single ‘Recovery.’ Playing with his band in a church, the track begins with Frank playing alone, with his guitar, before the band kick in with him for the chorus.

What's This!? Calvin Harris And Ellie Goulding Kiss In New Video


Calvin Harris Ellie Goulding

What’s this!? Calvin Harris and Ellie Goulding canoodling? Topless!? (Well Calvin is anyway,) MAKING OUT!? Fear not, those who are aware that both the DJ and the singer are currently in relationships with other people, the pals are just fooling around in a new video for Calvin Harris new single I Need Your Love.

The single is the seventh (!) to be released from Harris’ third album 18 Months – overkill much? – and evidently aware that surely no one gives a toss anymore about a track that’s been around for almost seven months, Harris has sought to spice things up a little in the video by having him and Goulding making out on the beach and in bed, to get people talking about it a little. It’s evidently worked given what we’re typing right at this instant.

In real life things are somewhat different, with Ellie Goulding going out with actor Jeremy Irvine, star of Spielberg film War Horse, and Harris dating former girlfriend of Maroon 5 man Adam Levine and Victoria’s Secret model, Anne Vyalitsyna. We can’t help but wonder what those two think of the pair in this video, however, we can’t help but feel they’ll feel a little perturbed by the clear chemistry that exists between the pair. Oo-er.

John Legend himself has been working with various organisations, focusing on women’s rights, for a long time. For The Huffington Post, the singer said he was “inspired” to act after traveling to Ghana with Millenium Promise co-founder Professor Jeffrey Sachs, who wrote The End of Poverty.

Didn't get your fill with the last dose of State-side halftime entertainment, well the NBA All-Star Weekend is here to help, with the show's line-up trying its best to out do Beyonce and co. last Sunday.

Taking place in Houston on Feb. 16-17, the showcase will be an all-star event in more than just b'ball-ability terms. Alicia Keys will be holding down the reigns at the halftime performance, whilst Ne-Yo will be performing before the main event. John Legend will perform the United States national anthem before the game. On the Saturday before, the newly reformed Fall Out Boy will be providing the half-time entertainment, their first live performance sine their 2009 split, whilst Ellie Goulding will play before the game.

The entertainment isn't just resigned to the match schedule though, as the full weekend of entertainment will also see American Idol winner Phillip Phillips performing on Saturday during the day, which will coincide with the time-honoured Skills Challenge, the Three-Point Contest and Slam Dunk Contest — all of which will be presided over by Nick Cannon.

Who wasn't at the ABC studios this week? Ok, so we weren't, and to be fair most of the world were probably elsewhere too, but three huge stars that were included Jennifer Lopez, Ellie Goulding and Drew Barrymore. All three were appearing on the network's flagship breakfast show Good Morning America, and there were contrasting ways in which each of the ladies coped with the early mornings and brisk seasonal cold.

A Week In Music – Everything Everything Avoid Second Album Syndrome With 'Arc,' Paul Weller's 'Dragonfly' Is A "Victory Lap," Jools Holland Teams Up With The Stars


Everything Everything Paul Weller Jools Holland Fake Blood Coldplay Haim Angel Haze Azealia Banks Ellie Goulding Skrillex

Everything Everything Press Image

Albums of Note... Deftly side-stepping the pitfalls of ‘second album syndrome,’ Everything Everything have stepped things up a notch with second album Arc, which looks set to raise their profile even further. They’ve retained their quirky dance geek sound, but this time around, the songs have a darker, more emotional sound. Where their debut was playful, a newfound intensity can be found on this follow-up“Arc offers more drama and intensity than the playful-ness we heard on Man Alive, Everything Everything's 2010-released debut… each track stands in its own right; nothing is filler and Arc maintains interest throughout; it's a much more mature offering than Everything Everything's previous, particularly with the likes of the gentle, piano-backed 'The Peaks, which sensitively showcases their trademark falsetto vocals in an atmospheric setting.”

Paul Weller’s latest release, the ‘Dragonfly EP’ is described by our reviewer as a “victory lap.” The EP contains a number of unreleased tracks from the Modfather’s trilogy of experimental albums released in 2012. Described as “by no means essential for the casual fan,” the tracks contained herein are a step away from the sonic experimentation of the albums and are closer to his early solo days.“The Dragonfly EP is therefore well worth your time if you have any interest in Weller's more recent output. However, for the more casual listener, it may seem like it's business as usual for the Modfather. The 5 additional songs certainly deserve to be heard, and it's a welcome move that they haven't just ended up on the cutting room floor.”

Ellie Goulding Collaboration With Ex Skrillex - 'Summit' Video Hits YouTube


Skrillex Ellie Goulding

Just how amicable was that split between Ellie Goulding and Skrillex?

Well, amicable enough, it would seem, that he’s still happy to release the collaborative track that they created, but not so amicable that he asked her to appear in the video for the track.

Instead, ‘Summit’ features footage of various young, lithe looking folk, most of whom look as though they just stepped straight out of an American Apparel advert. Crazy young kids, setting each other’s hair on fire, setting other things on fire, rolling around in a sorry excuse for a ball pool coasting around on their BMX bikes and, of course, spraying squirty cream moustaches on their faces. Because who DOESN’T want to do that whilst a Skrillex track whomp-whomps about in the background. The six minute track features vocals from Ellie throughout and they are largely distorted, though there are points when that voice is quite distinctly that of Elle Goulding.

Tom Odell, Brits Critics' Choice Winner Discovered By Lily Allen


Lily Allen Tom Odell Emeli Sande Jessie J Ellie Goulding

The up-and-coming British songwriter Tom Odell has been named as the winner of the Brits Critics’ Choice Award. He got his break in the music industry when a friend of Lily Allen’s took her to see him play and she was instantly drawn to the singer’s talents. Odell recently released his debut EP ‘Songs From Another Love’ and has expressed his surprise at learning that he’s been awarded the accolade of Critics’ Choice – becoming the first ever male artist to do so.

“I genuinely can’t believe it. Thank you so much. Looking at the list of amazing female artists who have won the Award already, I just hope I don’t let the boys down!" said Odell. Lily Allen – now known as Lily Rose Cooper – had already tipped Tom for success in NME, revealing “I went to see him play and signed him to my label straight away. His voice is fragile yet powerful and he sings mainly love songs. I'm not usually a massive fan of singer-songwriter stuff, but when I saw him live his energy onstage reminded me of David Bowie. It's not soppy and moany at all, it's energetic and insightful. And he's totally gorgeous as well! Blond hair and blue eyes, and simply just lovely.”

The Critics’ Choice award is chosen by a panel of industry insiders every year and is awarded to an artist who is yet to have released a debut album. Previous winners have included Emeli Sande, Jessie J and Ellie Goulding.

Katy Perry Fails To Come Up With Original Fancy Dress Outfit


Katy Perry John Mayer Skrillex Ellie Goulding Neil Patrick Harris Kristen Stewart

Katy Perry kicked off her birthday festivities this weekend by throwing a predictably lavish costume-party at Los Angeles' Magic Castle nightspot. The singer turns 28 on Thursday (Oct 25, 2012), though hardly made an effort to upstage her famous guests by dressing as a fairly standard vampire.


It was beau John Mayer who put a little more thought into his outfit, opting to arrive as a vampire hunter complete with prosthetic nose and chin, reports US Weekly. Elsewhere, Kristen Stewart snuck into the event fairly unnoticed, while house music DJ Skrillex and girlfriend Ellie Goulding were snapped in some pretty poor looking skeleton outfits. Diane Warren, Johnny Wujek, David Burtka and Neil Patrick Harris were also in attendance. The 'How I Met Your Mother' star tweeted a photograph from the event, adding, "Thank you @KatyPerry for having @DavidBurtka and me at your frightfully fun B'day Bash at the @MagicCastle last night."

Earlier in the weekend, Katy had joined Mayer's family and friends to celebrate his 35th birthday at Freemans restaurant on Manhattan's Lower East Side.


Ellie Goulding - Halcyon Album Review


The have and have not of artistic credibility used to be pretty clear cut in the UK music scene in the 1980s. You had your pop stars, appearing on Top Of The Pops, wearing ridiculous costumes, spending (in the case of the really successful ones) hundreds of thousands of pounds on the blossoming music video phenomenon. Then you had your surly looking bands, sullen of expression in their hand-me-down clothes, earnest of word and writing music that was jumped upon and praised by the leftfield music press, but ultimately still left them sharing a scabby bedsit in the arse end of suburbia. It was clear; one group just wanted everyone to sing their song enough to want to go and buy it, the others believed they were artistically expressing themselves, whether to the detriment of the listener or not.

Ellie Goulding - Halcyon Album Review

That's been changing ever since the turn of the 90s, from when the Stone Roses decided they would rather play to 20,000 people on an island than a few hundred at a Barfly, to when the BBC decided they were going to take a closer order of alternative music and started sending all their cameras down to Worthy Farm to cover Glastonbury, to Blur, Oasis and Britpop suddenly becoming commercial and political commodities and on and on ad infinitum. The point is that over the last twenty or so years this mythical 'indie cred' has become high profile and highly profitable. The BBC Sound of 2010 list, where we first met Ellie Goulding, has always tried to give the impression that the artists it's championing are the alternative; they're the bands, the underground producers and rappers. Yet there is no 'alternative' once you reach that level, winning the Sound list becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy as you find yourself plastered on billboards, shown on the red button, welcomed into the music industry and given a Best Rising Star award at the BRITS so that everyone can slap themselves on the back and say, 'look, we were right all along!'

Which is why artists like Ellie Goulding rankle, because there's no doubt that the team around them only have profit in mind, and yet the marketing behind it tries to convince us that they're pedalling something of substance. Here's a thought; have you ever seen the 25-year-old in a live promo picture without holding a guitar? It doesn't happen often, because that outdated notion of guitars = indie still exists in the major label offices. Additionally, with Goulding, she's being pushed as the sort of girl-next-door, who underneath it all is still just a singer songwriter earnestly pouring her heart out. On this album they've given her room for two songs that do just that, non-entities called 'I Know You Care' and 'Dead In The Water'. Interviews see her still try to talk about recording techniques she's developed and experiments with sounds; yet listening through Halcyon doesn't really reveal much other than the sort of bland, all-the-EQ-up noise war production that's become common place as labels desperately attempt to shout louder than the rest, in order to clasp the pitiful drain of money that's coming into the industry.

Twilight: Breaking Dawn – Part 2. Soundtrack Listing Finally Announced


Green Day Passion Pit Ellie Goulding Skrillex St. Vincent Feist Christina Perri Stephenie Meyer James Vincent McMorrow Paul McDonald Nikki Reed Reeve Carney

The tracklisting for Twilight: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 has finally been announced, via Yahoo and amongst the highlights of this latest instalment are Green Day, Passion Pit and Ellie Goulding. Green Day, obviously are a pretty big coup for the compilers of the soundtrack (Summit Entertainment release the album in collaboration with Chop Shop Records and Atlantic Records) and the band’s bass player Mike Dirnt spoke to Yahoo! about contributing their track ‘The Forgotten’ and said “When we were asked to be part of the 'Twilight: Breaking Dawn - Part 2' soundtrack, we readily agreed because the films are an insane cultural phenomenon, and we have always been impressed with the way the 'Twilight' soundtracks are so carefully curated.”

Ellie Goulding’s track will draw attention to the soundtrack too, not only because it’s an exclusive track but because it’s the first track that she’s released, to have been produced by her new boyfriend Skrillex. Following in the vein of slightly kooky female artists, St. Vincent and Feist have both contributed a track; both will undoubtedly make an excellent accompaniment to the dark, moody atmosphere of the Twilight movie.

Coming from a slightly more mainstream angle, Christina Perri returns with ‘A Thousand Years (Part Two)’. Naturally, it’s a follow on from her theme to the first installment of Breaking Dawn and Perri was almost a dead cert to be included on this final musical bow. She’s such a fan of Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight saga that she has the word ‘Bitten’ tattooed on her, in the Twilight font. She told Yahoo! “I am so honored and excited to be involved again in this final film and soundtrack.” She revealed that part two of the track will be different but hasn’t yet said how and the tracks are yet to be released. “It's not the same [as the original]... you'll just have to wait and see how,” she teased.
