Adam Lambert Returns With The Release of New Single ‘Two Fux’

two-fux-extralarge_1498836306898

US singer and former American Idol contestant Adam Lambert returns to the music scene two years following his previous album ‘The Original High’ with the release of his brand new single ‘Two Fux’ and it’s totally fab!

The brand new song features legendary members of British rock band Queen whom Adam Lambert has been touring extensively with over the past number of years. With that in mind the song has evidently taken influence from the iconic band and could easily have fitted amongst the band’s classic releases. There is definite aspects reminiscent of Queen classics such as ‘Good Old Fashioned Lover Boy’ and ‘Killer Queen’ both of which bear a similar classic rock meets jazz sound. In fact I’d even go as far to describe it as a modern day Queen song!

At the same time it has that unique and vibrant flare that shines through Adam Lambert’s previous solo releases but with a theatrical twist. Considering Adam’s background in musical theatre which saw him perform in a number of popular productions prior to American Idol such as ‘Wicked’, ‘Brigadoon’ and ‘Hair’ to name a few; he has an extremely strong and powerful voice which paticularly shines in such genres. Adam is by far one of my very favourite vocalists due to the spectacular tone, crisp perfection and diverse vocal range which he displays in each performance. Simply stunning to say the least!

The actual content and lyrics within the song are extremely personal to Adam as he shares his feelings and story within the LGBT community. It’s honest and poignant but at the same time oozes that quirk, sass and attitude that I admire him for. The song’s message is clear and something we all should take on board ‘Be ourselves and don’t give Two Fuxs (as Adam would say) about what anyone thinks of us!’

 

A fabulous new release from Adam Lambert and Queen who debuted the brand new song during an exciting performance on The Jimmy Kimmel Show ahead on their upcoming US tour. An exciting glimpse into upcoming music from Adam, I for one cannot wait to see what he has in store for us!!!

Buckingham McVie Release 1st Single ‘In my World’ Ahead Of Their Upcoming Album

Just weeks ago legendary Fleetwood Mac members Christine McVie and Lindsey Buckingham announced the anticipated release of a brand new album which they’ve been working on as a duo for the past couple of years. Set for release on the 9th June 2017 Buckingham McVie gave fans a first glance into the upcoming album with the release of its first single; a song named ‘In My World’.

Despite the new single solely featuring Lindsey Buckingham with the absence of the incredible Christine McVie’s vocals it most certainly doesn’t disappoint! At the same times creates an element of mystery and anticipation for fans as we await the album to hear new material from Christine. Being an avid Fleetwood Mac fan myself, I keep up with many of the dedicated fan-sites and related publications and have heard mixed reviews and decided opinions from fans. Some love it; some aren’t as keen but personally speaking it’s certainly got a thumbs up from me!

The track has that distinct Lindsey Buckingham sound that often arises amongst his recordings as both a member of Fleetwood Mac as well as in his solo material. It oozes that comforting acoustic folk rock sound; something that as a band Fleetwood Mac were renowned for in songs such as ‘Big Love’, ‘The Chain’, ‘Bleed To Love Her’ and ‘Second Hand News’ to name just a few-the list could easily go on forever!

For all the fans eagerly anticipating the upcoming Buckingham McvVie album, ‘In My World’ has served as an exciting insight into what to expect from the new music. If it’s anything to go by, I am sure it’s going to be good!

Take That Returns With New Single Giants!

After much anticipation the return of one of the UK’s favourites bands Take That is finally upon us as they celebrate the release of their brand new single Giants! Giants is the first release from the bands latest album ‘Wonderland’ which is set to be released next month ahead of the band’s UK tour in May and June which I’ve managed to get tickets for and will be writing about following the show here on Jukebox Rhapsody!

Having preordered the single from the bands official website I received my signed copy in the mail this morning which included some added bonuses including live recordings from Take That’s gig at Hyde Park in London last year as well as another new song titled ‘Loving or Leaving’. So does the new release live up to Take That’s usual standards? Will it be another hit for the band? There really isn’t a doubt about it; of course it’s a hit song! Would you really expect anything less?

It’s got that classic and distinctive sound that when you hear it for the first time, you’ll just know it’s Take That. It’s upbeat and extremely catchy coming with the guarantee that the lyrics will be stuck in your head after just a few listens. What I absolutely love about Take That is that although they started out in the 90s they’re still producing music that’s relevant and appeals to all ages.

If you loved ‘Let In The Sun’ from the bands previous album released back in 2015, then you’re bound to love Giants! Both tracks have a similar sound which I’m sure you’ll recognise after listening. Giants is without a doubt made to be performed live, you just know it’ll like up the arena and get everyone up on their feet and singing along – isn’t that what all good music’s about after all?

Yet again Take That continue to reign the world of pop with their latest release and it won’t be long until it’s blasting out on car radios and in homes up and down the country-I for one will be playing on my radio this Thursday evening! It’s a great introduction to everything that’s yet to come in the band’s new album; if Giants is anything to go by it’s gonna be great!
