Nadine Returns With Pop Banger

New Single 'Go To Work' Released Today, 8th September 2017

As one fifth of chart-mauling, award-winning, expectation-shattering girl band Girls Aloud, Nadine Coyle has already played her part in helping redefine pop. 

Now Nadine returns with 'Go To Work', a sleek, dance-lead future classic that sounds simultaneously retro and forward-thinking. Recorded and produced by experimental pop alchemist Brian Higgins (Xenomania), the track is a high-energy, deliciously vampy ode to making your man work for your affections and features powerhouse vocals that are instantly recognisable as Nadine.

Listen here:

https://nadine.lnk.to/GoToWorkPR

Nadine says of the track: "When you're constantly writing you write a lot about relationships and so it was like 'what else annoys you about being in relationships?' and they came up with this idea of writing about them being lazy and not getting up in the mornings.”

Under the watchful eye of Brian Higgins, Girls Aloud racked up a an incredible twenty-one UK Top Ten singles, twenty of those consecutively. If each member of the band – who sashayed their way through a ten-year, five album career – had a role, then Nadine's was The Voice. Often demoing the songs with Brian ahead of the other girls during the band's tenure, it's always been any discerning pop fan's dream for the pair to collaborate again on Coyle's solo material. 

After a false start with Coyle's Xenomania-free 2010 solo debut, Insatiable, that dream is now a reality, This isn't Girls Aloud 2.0, or even Nadine Coyle 2.0, this, finally, is Nadine Coyle: The Solo Artist.  Going into the sessions with a completely open mind, Brian and Nadine slotted back into their respective comfort zones, Nadine belting out majestic pop songs while Brian and his coterie of production geeks weaved various lyrics and melodies together to make chart gold. 

As Nadine says: “We weren't trying to make it sound like Girls Aloud, we weren't trying to make it sound the opposite, it was just a blank canvas. It's exciting.”

'Go To Work' is released Friday 8th September on Virgin EMI.

Mark Wright Lands Full Time Job On EXTRA

MARK WRIGHT HIRED AS FULL TIME CORRESPONDENT ON US TV's "EXTRA"

Mark Wright has landed himself a full time job on US Emmy Award winning entertainment series "Extra".

Mark has been hired as a full time correspondent for Extra, hosting the show alongside Mario Lopez, Renee Bargh, AJ Calloway and returning host Tanika Ray, making her return to “Extra” after serving as a host and correspondent from 2004 to 2009.

Mark says:

"I feel so honoured to be given a job on such a massive show in America, interviewing the biggest stars in the world, and working alongside Mario Lopez who I watched and loved growing up. 

Lisa G, the boss at EXTRA, didn't know me before meeting her. I asked for a meeting, and she believed in me from seeing my showreel. She gave me a chance by allowing me to interview Mariah Carey and from that she has now given me this amazing opportunity to work on the show full time. It's all a bit surreal. 

The UK will always be my home, but right now America is the path that has opened up for me, and I have to follow that."

The on-air changes for Extra are part of a fresh evolution for the series with more live elements showcasing the hosts personalities and points of view.  The ensemble will share their take on the most talked about headlines of the day. Viewers will also get unprecedented access to the show with a unique behind the scenes look at the hosts allowing them to get to know them and the day-to-day operation of the show.

“Extra” will continue to broadcast from Universal Studios Hollywood, in front of the studio’s iconic globe and various locations in New York, showcasing more two on one interviews, becoming the only show in the genre to have a full time team of hosts on both coasts who shoot in front of a live audience. 

Mark is a British TV presenter and radio show host who boasts millions of followers on social media and is best known as one of the stars of “The Only Way Is Essex.” Since Wright left the show in 2012, he had an impressive hosting career in the UK including, “Take Me Out The Gossip,” “Surprise Surprise,” “The Dengineers,”and the soccer show, “Match of the Day.”   He has hosted a radio show for the wildly popular Heart FM and is an accomplished DJ playing for sold out crowds in Ibiza, Mallorca, and London.

Ant & Dec's DNA Journey

Ant & Dec are to embark on an amazing journey of self-discovery in a new 90 minute ITV special that will see them leave their Geordie upbringings behind to go in search of their forefathers.

In a TV first, Ant & Dec's DNA Journey will use a unique combination of DNA and genealogy research to plot their family histories – going back further in time than any show has done before.

The pair – who have won the National Television Award for most popular presenter for 16 consecutive years – will use their long-standing shared history as a starting point to find out just how far back their bond goes.

The film will use the latest innovations in DNA science and technology to help trace their ancestors from thousands of years ago in a way that’s not been possible until now, enabling them to form a trajectory stretching from Newcastle to Neanderthal.

The duo will begin their historical search by providing saliva samples for DNA analysis to show the breakdown of their ethnic makeup and a route map of their genetic pasts.

The show - to be made by Voltage TV in co-production with Mitre Television – will follow the boys on an emotional journey that takes them across the Irish Sea and beyond as they unearth both their shared and individual histories. This is a modern biography that will give a unique and unseen insight into their lives.

Along the way they will be joined by family members as well as meeting long-lost distant relatives.

And in a unique twist, the show will culminate in a big reveal in which the best friends discover if either has blue blood - or if they are actually from pauper stock.

Informative on-screen graphics will also bring alive the cutting-edge DNA science behind the show.

Ant & Dec said: “Tracing our ancestors using pioneering DNA methods has been a fascinating and emotional process so far.

“We have discovered some amazing things which have shocked and surprised us and we still have hundreds of years to uncover! We are looking forward to sharing our journey with the audience.”

ITV Head of Entertainment Commissioning, Siobhan Greene, said: “Ant & Dec's DNA Journey is going to have the audience on the edge of their seats.

“Following the lads like we have never seen them before and with some twists and turns and parallels to each other's histories, this 90 minute film will leave viewers absolutely gobsmacked.

“And by Ant & Dec revealing their own personal family history we hope the audience at home will be inspired to wonder about their own.“

RAYE releases new TUNE 'The Line'

Brand New Single Released May 19th 2017

The UK's most hotly tipped newcomer and pop superstar in waiting, RAYE, returns this May with her brand new single 'The Line'.

Co-written by RAYE and produced by FRED, 'The Line' is a gold plated tune, full of character and featuring RAYE's unmistakable swagger alongside lyrics about the hassle of club queues on a night out.

RAYE says: "Going out clubbing gives you a cold dose of the expectation society has on women. To get into a club you have to kill yourself in heels, drowned in make up with a tight dress, maybe a bit of cleavage will help you out too. Me going as ‘myself’ wearing what I wanted didn’t cut it, you have to fit within the boundaries and expectations put on you.

Watching all these casually dressed men waltzing past me in the queue really pissed me off, so I wrote this tune."

RAYE has already hit the UK charts hard, featuring on Jonas Blue's recent hit "By Your Side' and collaborating with Jax Jones on the MONSTER smash hit 'You Don't Know Me', which reached No.3 on the Official UK Singles Chart, has to date gone Platinum in the UK alone, being streamed over 100 million times.

RAYE is the perfect popstar. An 19-year-old South Londoner who has been tipped by everyone from i-D Magazine, 1Xtra, Vevo and The Hunger, to MTV, The Guardian, The Sun and the BBC Sound Poll (she came third place). Her current CV includes two stellar EPs, writing credits on hits for Charli XCX, Snake Hips and Blonde, collaborations with Nas on the soundtrack to The Birth Of A Nation & Stormzy on her track 'Ambition', and a support slot on Jess Glynne'sArena tour. 

RAYE's steady shift in sound and a move towards something more pop is all part of her masterplan. “I want to be a massive pop artist and I've always wanted to start in the right place so that's with the music I love. I've always wanted to do it in my own way, on my own terms. It sounds stupid but I want to be as big as I can be,” she states. “I want to be massive. I'm 19 and I'm just starting so let's go.”

Niall's assured vocal combined with an infectious guitar lick, and the syncopated bassline, underscore the simmering desire the song celebrates. 

Says Niall of the track, which he recorded at Los Angeles’ legendary East/West Studios: "I’m so happy to be releasing ‘Slow Hands.’ I've been listening to a lot of early 80’s stuff lately and been inspired by that heavy bass and the funky guitar sound. It’s another flavor to my album that I’m excited to share." 

Produced by Julian Bunetta, “Slow Hands” can be downloaded and streamed HERE

It follows Niall’s hit single“This Town, which is certified Platinum in the U.S. and has sold more than three million track equivalent units globally. Combined streams now surpass 350 million worldwide. 

“This Town” reached #1 in 60 countries in the first 24 hours of its release, became the #1 trending topic worldwide on Twitter and topped the Shazam chart in numerous countries. Views of Niall’s “1 Mic 1 Take” performance of “This Town” now exceed 35 million. TIME said, “‘This Town’ is a lush, guitar-forward ballad” and Entertainment Weekly hailed it as “a wistful tale of young love lost.”

Niall – who won his first solo People’s Choice Award in 2016, taking home the award for Favorite Breakout Artist – is currently in the studio working on his full-length debut.

Emma Bunton Launches Kit & Kin

Emma Bunton Introduces New Eco-Friendly Family Brand Kit & Kin

We all want to give our children the best start in life, now and for the future. Launching this March is Kit & Kin, a new family brand o ering a range of premium performance bio-degradable nappies and certified natural skincare for mothers and babies.

Kit & Kin was founded by Emma Bunton and Christopher Money, who brings 15 years experience developing mother and baby products for some of the world’s leading brands. As parents frustrated by the increase of unsustainable and potentially harmful products on the shelves, they were inspired to create an a ordable and eco-friendly brand that cares for you and your family naturally. Taking the hassle out of choosing every day products which are stylish, safe and e ective, the Kit & Kit range is easy to order through a convenient online bundle service.

Emma Bunton, co-founder, Kit & Kin, says

“My son has always su ered with eczema and for so many years we struggled to find products that weren’t full of chemicals that would further irritate his skin . As a mother, my children are my number one priority and I do everything I can to ensure they’re always safe, healthy and happy. At Kit & Kin, we want to take away the stress and worry parents often experience when trying to choose the best products for their family. That’s why we’ve developed an amazing range you can trust to care and protect for your family as they grow.”

Kit & Kin’s debut range of premium performance bio-degradable nappies features a choice of delightful animal faces and has been developed to provide maximum comfort, dryness and security for up to 12 hours. Dermatologically tested and approved, each nappy uses more sustainable materials than many other standard household brands, and contains significantly fewer chemicals, which means tiny bottoms can have a drier and healthier start to life.

With the launch of Kit & Kin also comes their pledge and commitment to help protect your little ones, now and in the future. This is why their environmentally friendly nappies, available with handy bio-degradable nappy sacks, will break down and biodegrade within three to six years, contributing to a greener and happier planet for everyone.

 

The Kit & Kin range also includes a gentle yet nourishing selection of skincare products for mothers and babies that uses natural, soothing and delicious smelling ingredients and essential oils to care for and protect delicate and problem areas. From shampoos and bubble bath for baby to stretch mark oil and breast balm for mum, all products in this range work hard to clean thoroughly and moisturise deeply, whilst remaining free-from parabens, SLSs and artificial colours. All Kit & Kin skincare is certified natural, and is clinically and dermatologically tested to ensure products are not only gentle but safe to use on the whole family.

Kit & Kit launches on 24th March 2017 at KitandKin.com with the full range available to shop online, and the option to build a nappy bundle as part of our convenient cost saving subscription service that can be tailored to your family needs.

Did You Know:

Conventional nappies are one of the largest contributors to landfills in the world .
In the UK alone we throw away 8 million nappies every day. The majority of the Kit & Kin nappy, including packaging, will biodegrade within 3 to 6 years. Compare this to conventional nappies that can take up to 500 years to biodegrade and the choice is clear.
