New Music Blogs!

These blogs aren't necessarily brand new, but they are new to me! I found them while perusing We Are Pop Slags, fast becoming one of my new favorite music blogs. Thanks to these new blog-finds, I've learned quite a few interesting pop music bits. Hears the rundown.

Brandy, Kelis and Christina Milian Photos come from Artists' official websites/MySpace pages

The Prophet - Hip Hop/R&B Blog:

Alexandra Burke, Leona Lewis and Rihanna

Photos come from artists' official websites/MySpace pages

Toya's World - R&B Blog:

  • New sneak peak of Ciara's new single, "Love Sex Magic," featuring Justin Timberlake
  • New LeToya Luckett (formerly of Destiny's Child) single, "She Ain't Sh** On Me"
  • X-Factor Winner, Alexandra Burke working with Akon & Pharrell
  • Electrik Red showcases album artwork for debut album, How To Be a Lady: Volume 1
  • New Rihanna album expected by the end of the year (WOW!)
  • New Leona Lewis album scheduled for Fall (working with Ryan Tedder & Guy Chambers, among others)

Emma Bunton and Max Martin

This Must Be... Pop! (formerly Dirrrty Pop) - Pop Music Blog:

  • Emma Bunton collaborating with producer/songwriter Max Martin (Kelly Clarkson, Sugababes, Britney Spears) on new material

All of this news exciting! I'm particularly excited about the new Kelis, Leona and Emma Bunton. I, like Jessica over on This Must Be... Pop! am a bit surprised that Emma is working with Max Martin. I admittedly purchased Emma's last album and was HUGELY dissapointed. I enjoyed the 60s throwback vibe that Free Me had goin' for it, but I was hoping she's change things up on her next effort. No...she kept up with that whole sound and produced a boring album. This collaboration could be hot...or it could be a hot mess. I'm bettin' on the former!

Check out these other music bloggers when you get a chance!

New Album/Single Artwork - Lady Gaga, Lily Allen, Mandy Moore

Lady Gaga - Lovegame Lily Allen - Not Fair
I love album art. I obsessively tag my music in iTunes (which is rough, since I have almost 35,000 songs) and even go as far as to make my own amateur artwork if I can't find it somewhere else (OCD?). Coverlandia, as I've mentioned before, is one of my favorite album art resource - both for official and amateur.

Today, Coverlandia posted the single artwork for Lady Gaga's new single, "Lovegame" and Lily Allen's 2nd single of It's Not Me, It's You, "Not Fair." I love both of them. Gaga is looking fabulous per usual and Lily is looking fun and girly.
Mandy Moore - Amanda Leigh
Mandy Moore's artwork I posted about yesterday. It's the new cover art from her forthcoming new album, as seen on her official website. It's simple, yet beautiful. No frills or bling. Stripped down and very natural. Gorgeous!
I discovered all sorts of new music blogs today and learned a bunch of new, juicy pop news. Another big update coming later tonight or tomorrow!

The Ting Tings Rock Boston & Some Other Music News

Ting Tings at the Paradise
Got back from the Ting Tings performance at the Paradise in Boston. Amazing show. Of course, it was too short but all in all a BLAST. They performed all 10 songs from their debut album We Started Nothing and did it well. Katie White has quite the set of pipes, and her partner in crime, the scrumptious Jules DeMartino was quite awesome on backing vocals, percussion and everything else he did. Good show!

I've been flaky with my blogging lately. Apologies. I've been listening to tons of new music. Really excited about this new FANTASTIC artist, Dan Black. He just released a single over in the UK called "Alone" (no...not the Heart classic) but my absolute FAVORITE song so far is his take on "Hypnotize" by Notorious B.I.G. It's dope! He's performing at the Camden Crawl in London April 24 & 25th - which coincidentally - is when I'll be in London. I'd love to see him live (or at least pick up his single). Follow him on Twitter @Dan__Black.

Mandy Moore - Amanda Leigh Album Artwork From Mandy Moore's Official Site

Mandy Moore's new website has officially launched, and she's now on Twitter @TheMandyMoore. Her single, "I Can Break Your Heart Any Day Of The Week" is a fun little romp of a tune and her voice sounds better than ever. Pick it up on iTunes today! I can't wait to hear her new album, Amanda Leigh, which comes out in May.

Kelly Clarkson - My Life Would Suck Without You

Finally tonight (cause it's LATE), ArjanWrites posted the Tommie Sunshine remix to Kelly Clarkson's "My Life Would Suck Without You." It's a pretty hot remix. Sunshine typically adds a hot beat to rockier from groups like The Sounds, Fall Out Boy and Gossip. This is definitely a surprise for me. I'm glad the remixes are finally coming out. Her new single is "I Do Not Hookup" and it too is a jam. Check out the Tommie Sunshine remix here.
