James Arthur – ‘You Deserve Better’
James Arthur has just returned with not one, but two, new songs in the form of a double A-side single, You Deserve Better/At My Weakest.
‘You Deserve Better’ is an acoustic-driven track at the start but then goes on to see the introduction of funky bass guitars, pounding drums and rhythmic claps. The almost understated repetition of the track’s title in the pre-chorus is catchy and seems to take a hold on the listener, before James Arthur bursts into his full, powerful vocals in the chorus. It’s a brilliantly written track!
Does this signify the coming of a third album for the artist?!
No official video has been released as yet, but the paper-themed lyric video (below) should keep you going for now.

MNEK – ‘Colour’ featuring Hailee Steinfeld
To much delight from fans, MNEK recently announced that his debut album is finished and in the process of being mixed.
Earlier this year, he released the tantalising ‘Tongue’ and now he’s back with ‘Colour’ (presumably the second single from the upcoming album), which is a collaboration with singer and actress, Hailee Steinfeld.
The track comes just in time for Pride season and with the mention of rainbows 🌈 and MNEK himself being gay, we’re sure this is going to receive a lot of spins around the world, this summer.
The track is tropical house-flavoured with and almost reggae beat to it. The playful, loved-up lyrics are fun and catchy and the way the pair bounce off each other and harmonise is just perfect!
Again, no music video has been released for this track yet but the wonderfully colourful lyric video (below) should hopefully brighten up your day.
‘Colour’ can also be downloaded from iTunes now! – https://itunes.apple.com/gb/album/colour-feat-hailee-steinfeld/1386508884?i=1386509174
