This Thursday, London jazz diva Paloma Faith, the 1950s throwback who’s been described as “a mix between Peggy Lee and Bjork” is giving a performance to an exclusive crowd at Stockholm’s Village and we’ve got three very special pairs of tickets to give away to Spotify Premium members in Sweden.
If you want to be in with a chance of winning VIP tickets to the guaranteed-to-be-smoulderingly-hot show (she was formerly a burlesque dancer), then be sure to leave a comment on the blog saying why you should gain entry, and we’ll contact the winners this Thursday. Doors opens at 20.00, with Faith getting the party started at 21.00. There’s only a few days left, so be sure to get in quick!
Faith, who can be seen in Terry Gilliam’s upcoming movie The Imaginarium Of Doctor Parnassus, Heath Ledger’s final film before his death last year, will release her debut album later next month. Her first single from the album Stone Cold Sober was released recently.
Twenty-year-old singer songwriter Steve Appleton will release his debut album on 31st August. Taking inspiration from an array of genres including Pop, Rock, Funk and Dance, Steve has an ear for tune, an eye for an incredible live show and single-handedly wrote and produced his entire album.
Kicking off today, Spotify Premium subscribers in the UK can be the first to hear his new album, When The Sun Comes Up.
For a taste of what to expect check out his debit single Dirty Funk.
7 Worlds Collide was a live album released in 2001 by New Zealand singer/songwriter, Neil Finn. In December of 2008 the 7 Worlds Collide line up reconvened to record a charity album for Oxfam.
Starting today Spotify Premium users in the UK can listen exclusively to the new album, The Sun Came Out, before it’s released. Familiar faces from the original album abound, Johnny Marr, Ed O’Brien and Phil Selway of Radiohead and the likes of KT Tunstall and Wilco are all included.
Music mythology dictates that artists who’ve tasted success with a mercurial debut in many cases struggle with their Difficult Second Album. Not so a certain Jack Peñate, who has delighted fans and critics alike with his follow up Everything Is New.
‘Sunny and gloriously assured’, ‘brave and exhilirating’ and ‘rather brilliant’ are just some of the praises showered on Jack’s latest effort, whose popular debut followed the 2007 trend for cockney slices of life, with pearly king Jamie T and queen Kate Nash also finding fame at around the same period.
Jack releases his new single Pull My Heart Away today. Already a huge live favourite, the Paul Epworth-produced single is set to build on the success of previous singles Tonight’s Today and Be The One.
To celebrate today’s release, we’re giving away ten pairs of tickets to Jack’s upcoming UK & Ireland tour this October, exclusively to Spotify Premium UK members.
Subscribers should simply post a comment saying which gig they’d like to attend, as well as letting us know which Jack track holds a special place in your heart and why.
