Jedward – Free Spirit

Irish pop duo Jedward’s first song from their as-yet unnamed fourth album packs a lot of punch. Written by the twins themselves, “Free Spirit”, we are told, was inspired by figure Skater Gracie Gold, whom they watched on television during this year’s winter Olympics.

The song however could just as easily be about John and Edward, as the pair have faced many challenges in their quest for a musical career, and have met each one with a free spirit, and an attitude of “living outside the box”.



Recorded in LA earlier this year, “Free Spirit” has a really catchy electro-pop sound to it (possibly created using Launchpad) and the chorus at least is guaranteed to be running through your head all day. Rolling Stone magazine says,

“The song’s brooding, mature sound, surprisingly similar to indie-electro bands like Bastille and the Temper Trap, is a massive departure from the kiddie-pop of early Jedward singles like “Bad Behaviour,” “Wow Oh Wow,” and “Girl Like You” “

Rolling Stone likes it. We like it. Have a listen to “Free Spirit” here and judge for yourself – is it a hit or a miss?
