TRACK OF THE WEEK

Calm Down

Katy B, Fourtet and Float­ing Points

As Christ­mas draws closer, we thought we were were ready to get snug­gly by the fire. But like a 9pm “u out?” text mes­sage on Stephen’s night, Katy B has roused us from our cosi­ness. With a touch of Flow­ers by Sweet Fe­male At­ti­tude, Katy sings about how she really should go home, but the mu­sic is too damn good. Why calm down when you can stay out?

Hero of the Week is Ed Sheeran, who has quit so­cial me­dia. He posted his de­ci­sion on his In­sta­gram ex­plain­ing: “I’m tak­ing a break from my phone, emails and all so­cial me­dia for a while. I’ve had such an amaz­ing ride over the last five years but I find my­self see­ing the world through a screen and not my eyes so I’m tak­ing this op­por­tu­nity of me not hav­ing to be any­where or do any­thing to travel the world and see ev­ery­thing I’ve missed.” He went on, “To my fam­ily and friends, if you love me you’ll understand me bug­ger­ing off for a bit, to my fans, the 3rd al­bum is on its way and is the best thing I’ve made thus far. See you all next au­tumn.”

Zero of the Week is tabloid drama, Rita Ora told Re­fin­ery 29. “I used to be ob­sessed with it. I would Google my name and blah, blah, blah.” But she’s since learned to let it go, “even talk­ing about it now makes it a topic of con­ver­sa­tion. The gos­sip side doesn’t af­fect what I do. The per­sonal stuff of ac­tu­ally, like, be­ing in a re­la­tion­ship is what af­fects me.”
