British duo Cash & Carter, comprising Birmingham artist Shaun Smith and London producer Ross O’Reilly, are set to release their most recent single, titled ‘Americana (Letting Her Go)’, on September 8th. The song, produced as a tribute to a friend who took their own life, is the first of many to be released from the duo’s upcoming debut EP, and is their first single since ‘All Of The Way’ earlier this year.
Earlier this month, on the 4th of August, English singer-songwriter Jamie Lawson announced the production of his newest album, titled ‘Little Weaknesses’, along with the release of its first single, ‘Napoleon Dynamite’.

The English group The Two Man Travelling Medicine Show released their latest single, ‘I’m So Angry I Could Vote’, off their upcoming album, ‘Folkadelica’. Detailing the stark contrast between the French and English political situations, where riots in France were caused by a seemingly insignificant decision, while in England, politicians can do what they please without fear of backlash, the song is an energetic anthem that calls for action from the English people.
Yesterday, on July 24th, the legendary country artist Pat Boone released a cover of one of the late Red Foley’s most classic songs, ‘Chattanoogie Shoeshine Boy’. Boone first covered the song on his 1956 release, ‘Howdy!’, during a time where a wide variety of other artists such as Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra also covered the hit song; now, two thirds of a century later, Boone seeks to pay homage to one of his most famous performances, while also honouring Foley’s legacy, with a cover of his father-in-law’s signature song, ‘Chattanoogie Shoeshine Boy’.
