British singer songwriter Scarlette Fever will release her new single 'Elated' on September 18th. It is her third single, following on from 'Black and White' and debut 'Crash and Burn'. It is also taken from her debut album, 'Medication Time', which was released in June 2011.
The video for Elated was directed by Dani Jacobs, who has previously directed videos for music heavyweights Gary Barlow, Moby and Texas. Filmed in Cecil Sharpe House in North London, Scarlette sings and plays piano to the camera, while behind her, footage of her childhood plays on boxes and toys. The video is simple but it perfectly complements the powerful pop ballad.
Scarlette Fever (real name Karen Louise Barrow) is already working with well known names from the music industry, despite her only just starting out earlier this year. Her singles have been produced by Julian Emery, who has produced for the likes of the immensely successful pop rockers McFly and American singer songwriter Lissie. Scarlette has also toured with the record breaking British girl group Girls Aloud and Simon Webbe, formerly of boyband Blue fame. She has also supported Mike + the Mechanics on their 'Hit the Road' tour, which started in May and took in 22 shows across the country.

The season 7 premiere guests featured some cast members we haven't seen much of for a while.
This year's Rotterdam event was definitely one to remember.
