Louis says: "I wrote this song about a time in my life when I was going out partying every night. In hindsight throughout that time I was pretty numb and just going through the motions. Deep down it was always in the back of my mind that what I really missed was the girl that I loved. It was important for me to write something really honest. "

Louis's recent single 'Back To You' featuring Bebe Rexha and Digital Farm Animals has been a global smash reaching No.1 in 37 countries, being streamed over 220 million times and selling over 1 million copies.

James Arthur Returns With New Single - 'Naked'

Acclaimed artist, James Arthur, returns today with his stunning new single, Naked, released on Sony Music.

The track follows a remarkable 14 months for James. Since being released in September 2016, comeback single Say You Won’t Let Go has sold more than 8.3 million copies to date worldwide and secured 1.5 billioncombined streams. The single spent three weeks at No.1 in the UK and went to No.1 on US radio. In addition, James’ album Back From The Edge, released in October 2016, went straight to No.1 in the UK charts and has gone multi platinum worldwide.

In addition, the widely billed ‘comeback of the year’, James has achieved two Brit Award nominations including ‘British Single of the Year’ as well as an American Music Award nomination for 'Best New Artist'.

James worked on the song with renowned songwriters ‪Max Martin‪, Savan Kotecha and Johan Carlsson

Listen here:
 

https://jarthur.lnk.to/Naked

Speaking of Naked, James says: "The four chords that introduce the song are key, I think. Then you get the crescendo, the middle eight, the huge final chorus, but there's no sense of overload; it stays true to the simplicity of those four chords. It's like a hymn, that devotional aspect. The minute you hear those chords, you want to sing over them." 

The single's gospel elements reflect a newfound passion of James'. "Gospel is something that's become really close to my heart, I absolutely love it now. I'm not a particularly religious person but that music – man, it's so powerful. Watching the ‪George Michael documentary, it was such a strong reminder of how he brought gospel influences into pop, and how beautiful the results can be." 

Naked coincides with James’ 11-date UK arena tour.  In December, he will then return to the studio to continue recording his third album, which is due for release next year. Working on the new album with leading lights such as ‪Ryan Tedder, ‪Justin Tranter, ‪Max Martin, James has rediscovered the passion for music that he first experienced as a child. 

James spent summer 2017 on a 42-date arena tour with ‪OneRepublic which he reveals was inspiring and rejuvenating. "I've got such a strong relationship with my band now. We’ve been working together for more than two years and we did the OneRepublic tour over the summer, which was incredibly bonding. It was like Big Brother on a bus for two months, living in each other's pockets, and musically, we really gelled. That's an incredibly special feeling.”

Tom Fletcher Announces The Christmasaurus Musical Edition!

Tom Fletcher Announces A World First: The Special Musical Edition Of The Christmasaurus

First Time Ever An Author Has Written A Soundtrack For Their Novel

Book & CD Released Together November 16th 2017

Harry Judd, Matt Willis, Giovanna Fletcher and Carrie Hope Fletcher To Star In Stage Show Production

 

Tom Fletcher this morning announced that he is releasing a special Musical Edition of his novel 'The Christmasaurus', featuring the hit book and a brand new 14 track CD.

Released November 16th, this book and CD package marks the very first time an author has written a soundtrack to their novel.

The Musical Edition includes 14 never-before-heard songs on CD, all written and performed by Tom Fletcher.  The tracks are accompanied by a full orchestra, alongside solos from Giovanna Fletcher, Carrie Hope-Fletcher – and Santa Claus! Throughout the story are prompts that tell you when to press play, with full lyrics included so readers can sing along too.

As Tom explains "This book all began with a song. It was called…’The Christmasaurus’! That song inspired this whole story and as I began writing the book I wrote more songs that helped me tell the story and bring the characters to life. The book was released last year, but I knew that somehow I wanted to get these songs out there too. I see them as a soundtrack to the book and, while the book can be read on its own, just as the songs can be listened to without reading the book, you only get the full story when you combine the two."

Tom also announced today the special guests who will be joining him for The Christmasaurus - Live On Stage. 

Harry Judd, Matt Willis, his wife Giovanna Fletcher and his sister Carrie Hope Fletcher will all be appearing alongside Tom in the show, which arrives at the Eventim Apollo London for a special Christmas spectacular, for a strictly limited run from 21 – 28 December 2017.

Featuring the all new songs, 'The Christmasaurus - Live On Stage'  is directed by Derek Bond and has been adapted for stage by Miranda Larson. The stage show will feature sleigh bells and singing elves, Santa Claus and flying reindeer, music and magic. It’s a tale about adventure, family, friendship and discovering that the impossible might just be possible.

'The Christmasaurus' is also being turned into an animated feature film, directed by Michael Gracey who has recently directed the highly anticipated movie 'The Greatest Showman On Earth' starring Hugh Jackman, Zac Efron and Michelle Williams. 

'The Christmasaurus' was the biggest debut middle-grade novel of 2016, it reached No.2 in the children’s chart, held-off the top position by JK Rowling and was shortlisted for Children’s Book of the Year at The British Book Awards. Rights have been sold in x territories including the US, Germany, Spain and France. Forget everything you thought you knew about the North Pole, pop a crumpet in the toaster and get ready to meet:  A boy called William Trundle; His dad, Mr Bob Trundle; Santa Claus (yes! The real Santa Claus!); an elf named Snozzletrump; Brenda Payne, the meanest girl in school (possibly the world); a nasty piece of work called the Hunter; and a most unusual dinosaur . . .

Tom Fletcher is one of the UK's bestselling authors for children. His latest middle-grade novel, 'The Creakers', has just been released, alongside 'There’s a Monster in Your Book', his most recent picture book.  He is also one half of the author duo behind the Dinosaur That Pooped picture-book series, which has sold over a million copies. Tom's books have been translated into nineteen languages around the world (and counting). Tom Fletcher Book Club with WHSmith launched in Summer 2017 and Tom is a 2018 World Book Day author with his £1 book Brain Freeze.

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.

  

About “Extra”

“Extra” is the second longest-running entertainment news magazine on U.S. television, with host Mario Lopez reporting in front of a live audience from the show’s hot location at Universal Studios Hollywood.

The show takes viewers on a coast-to-coast trip in every episode, from Hollywood to Las Vegas to Times Square and beyond. “Extra” continues to provide a hip, fresh and unique approach to breaking entertainment news. “Extra” is produced by Telepictures Productions and is distributed by Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution. Check your local listings for stations and times.
