Here we are, it’s time for the first new music review of 2020 from KVH Studios, all have which have been added to our in-store music services.
We start with a duet by two singers with a combined age of 143, who have sold one or two records in the 50 years they have been in the music industry. It’s the title track from Ozzy Osbourne’s new album which is released in February and features another legend in the shape of Sir Elton John on vocals and piano. And it’s not just those two, it also features Slash & Duff from Guns N Roses and Chad from Red Hot Chili Peppers. Oh, and it’s a cracking single.
At the other end of musical scale, Celeste is starting out. She’s the Brits Rising Star and the winner of the BBC Sound of 2020 Poll. Her new single Stop this Flame is so different from her last track Strange, which shows how good she is.
We’ve been big fans of the amazing Ella Eyre for so many years, having burst onto the scene with Rudimental’s Waiting All Night. Now she’s back with the first new music from her second solo album.
Another singer returning, but after a little bit longer than Ella, is Andrew Roachford. He hit the charts in 1989 with Cuddly Toy and is back with a superb new single Love Remedy. It’s taken from his 11th album Twice in a Lifetime, which is out in April.
April also sees the release of Gregory Porter’s new album All Rise. The first taste of the album is Superb Revival. He says of the track “Yes, you could say that I went big,” and he does. It’s a single with a big sound. And we like that sound.
