Scissor Sisters – ‘Only The Horses’ (prod. Calvin Harris & Alex Ridha)


Taken off their forthcoming album, ‘Magic Hour’, Scissor Sisters have premiered the next single moments ago on Fearne Cotton’s Radio 1 show. Slightly different to the Kanye West track I gave you all this Good Friday morning, but still a really good track for me! Calvin’s impact on the track is obvious, one of the best working producers in my view, this is coming close to ‘We Found Love’! Production also coming from Alex Ridha, from Boys Noize, completes the track, and although it’s a  probable chart climber, it maintains a different feel to a dead-cert number 1.

On Calvin, front man Jake Shears said, “”I’ve known Calvin for quite a while, we met originally making some music with Kylie for the ‘Aphrodite’ album. He’s just a lovely guy, he’s so wonderful.”

The track is due to be released on 13th May, with the album on May 28th. The album features very talented people, not just Calvin and Alex Ridha. None other Pharrell Williams! Shears told Fearne: “I was a little bit intimidated, because I think Pharrell’s really amazing… dare I say it, I think it might be some of our best work on this album.”

Arctic Monkeys – Radio 1 Live Lounge


During the release week of their single, ‘Black Treacle’, the Arctic Monkeys popped into the prestigious Radio 1 Live Lounge, and gave a typically great performance – of their own track, ‘Black Treacle’:

And a brilliant laid-back cover of Katy B’s breakthrough single, ‘On A Mission’ – weird how they managed to make it sound like an actual Arctic Monkeys track:

They also performed one of their classics, ‘I Bet That You Look Good On The Dancefloor’ – which is just as epic as it was when it came out all those years ago!

This followed the release of the single, and it’s B-Side – which you can hear and watch here!
