I am mad about Nerina Pallot’s “Put Your Hands Up”. Originally intended for Kylie, the song is now the lead single off Nerina’s forthcoming fourth album, “Year of the Wolf”. Her vocals sound effortless as ever, and even though I was not sure about Bernard Butler‘s Northern soul ****** at first, it’s now firmly lodged in my brain. Popjustice was right when they said it’s highly addictive. The music video, premiered yesterday, looks like it wasn’t shot on the sunniest day, but the whimsicality fits the track. I wasn’t fussed about her last album, to be honest, spare the fantastic recluse anthem “I Don’t Want To Go Out”. This time around, color me excited. Watch the video below, and get her take of Kylie’s “Better Than Today” after the jump.
Apparently, there has been an avalanche of new holiday music this year. This post is my attempt to round up all the free nice tunes, but there’s so much I have to split it up in 2 parts. Hopefully, these music selections might soundtrack your holiday break well, or least, make it more bearable.
Well, they seem to take up with each other well. First, Kylie lended her vocals on Hurts’ album track “Devotion.” Then Hurts covered “Confide In Me” for The Sun’s Biz Sessions. Now Kylie returned the favor by singing Hurts’ “Wonderful Life” on BBC Radio 1 Live Lounge. It’s almost certain these three are gonna be tour mates, too. Artist-to-artist companionship FTW.
Kylie’s take on “Wonderful Life” is an acoustic ballad with some rather lovely strings. It’s very nice of her to pick this track and give the band a little more exposure. Check out her version, and Hurts’ fantastic cover of “Confide In Me” after the jump.
