Now that’s a striking cover. She looks a bit Dita Von Teese there, doesn’t she?
Clare Maguire is definitely one of 2011’s pop hopefuls and her new single, “The Last Dance”, is a belter. It’s actually an ode to Michael Jackson, and has a pretty nice video, too. Chase & Status has done the token dubstep remix, giving it the night-time treatment with some lovely harpy bits.
She lent them back her pipes on “Midnight Caller”, a track from their album “No More Idols”. How awfully nice of her!
Clare also did a beautiful cover of Antony & The Johnsons’ “Hope There’s Someone”, which you can stream/download below.
Her debut album, “Light After Dark”, drops Feb 28 in the UK. It has the potential to be quite amazing. But of course I haven’t heard it yet so don’t take my words. Watch this space etc.
To sum it up, hot artwork, nice remix/cover, new album soon. Hurrah for journalism.
