2014 Will See Kylie Minogue Embark On A Tour For Her Latest Album.
Credited with single-handedly reviving the BBC's singing talent contest, The Voice, the 45 year-old singer has a sizeable fan base in the UK who will no doubt be poised to snap up the tour tickets when they go on sale this Friday (21st March). Kiss Me Once sees Kylie team up with some of the hottest names in music today, including producers Sia, Stargate and Pharrell Williams.
OK, so the majority of the US public have just one race on their minds today and that’s the US Presidential race. But once that’s been decided in a few hours, all thoughts will surely be turning to the all-important albums chart race… surely? Can any of this week’s releases threaten Taylor Swift’s position at the top or will she get a second term at number one?
Aerosmith have returned, after an 11-year hiatus from writing any new material. Time appears to have stood still on Aerosmith-land in those eleven years and Music From Another Dimension is pretty much as you would expect an Aerosmith album to sound. Of course, Steven Tyler’s presence on American Idol has brought the attention of Aerosmith back to a new generation of fans, so much of this material may well even sound fresh to them.
Rihanna’s new single ‘Diamonds’ has debuted online. The track is the first to be released from her next album, which is expected to land in November and will most likely have everyone wondering whether or not the track is about her relationship with Chris Brown. It’s frustratingly ambiguous but the lyrics could well be applicable to her and Chris, as she sings “Find light in the beautiful sea/ I chose to be happy/ You and I, you and I/ We're like diamonds in the sky” and in the chorus: “So shine bright tonight, you and I/ We're beautiful like diamonds in the sky/ Eye to eye, so alive/ We're beautiful like diamonds in the sky." Could she be singing about Chris?
It’s a pretty laid-back track, by Rihanna standards and she told radio DJ Elvis Duran “It gives me such a great feeling when I listen to it… The lyrics are very hopeful and positive, but it's about love, and the gears are a little different from what people would expect. I'm excited to surprise them sonically." ‘Diamonds’ sees Rihanna working with Stargate once more, who helped make a success of ‘Don’t Stop The Music,’ ‘Only Girl (In The World) and ‘Rude Boy.’
Rihanna has yet to confirm the details of the album release date or its title, though MTV News suggest that it may be called 7 Wonders. Her 2013 world tour will be named after this lead track.
