Late last year Jedward began offering their critically acclaimed 4th album, ‘Voice Of A Rebel’ in CD format. The demand for CDs, which were initially available for a limited time only with delivery before Christmas, was so high that the Dublin twins were compelled to offer a second wave, with a January delivery.
Now they’ve added a bonus package, in the form of a signed CD, plus two Polaroids, shot exclusively for each order.

As bleak as it is bewitching, and as stark as it is sorrowful, ‘Honest Men’ is the evidence that Janet has already lived more lifetimes than most.
We’ve had The Essential Advent Calendar for a few years now and usually when it comes to December 25 we summarise the songs we’ve featured over advent. This year is going to be different. It’s the end of the decade.

And ultimately, it’s up to us to decide whether it’s going to be a time of prosperity and positivity or not: will we have a Roaring 2020s, or will we just go along with whatever is given to us, accepting it as our lot in life, no matter how miserable it makes us feel?
