Manchester-based trio NXTGEN is back with another sublime pop tune. The band who consist of Cian Gleeson, Joel Healey and Sonny Hardman shot to fame on the ITV talent show, The Voice. ‘I Don’t Know How to Dance’ is the follow up to their previous single ‘Embrace’ which was released earlier this year.
Ahead of their much-anticipated 10th anniversary edition, featuring a star-studded line-up including, among many others, Cardi B, George Ezra, Solange, Migos, Khalid, and The Streets in their first festival performance in over 8 years – the popular Parklife Festival is going much beyond just offering brilliant music, as they aim to provide an environmentally friendly weekend for all party goers in their on-going campaign.
Hot on the heels of the lyric reveal of their song, ‘Teenage Runaway’, Jedward have released the words for another track from their upcoming fourth album, ‘Voice Of A Rebel’. The second song, ‘Respect Your Dreams’, comes ahead of their UK tour, which starts with two nights at the historic Manchester venue, The Factory, 10 and 11 May.
It’s hard to believe but the undisputed classic album, ‘Starfish’, from legendary Australian band The Church, commemorates its 30th anniversary this year. To celebrate the occasion, The Church will be touring the UK this June, including a weekend of shows at London’s Bush Hall, as well as appearances at Manchester’s Club Academy, and La Belle Angele, in Edinburgh.
With Ireland today finally revealing that they’re sending Sarah McTernan as their entry to this year’s Eurovision Song Contest, two time entrants Jedward – to date the holders of the best result this century for Ireland – have announced they will be performing 6 UK concert dates this May. Further dates, including the possibility of Dublin shows, are yet to be confirmed.
Today March 1 sees the release of Tom Walker’s debut album, ‘What A Time To Be Alive’.

That track entered straight into the UK Official Top 40 songs of 2018, and also hit the #1 spot on iTunes in 20 countries, and sold Platinum in 10.
