The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - NEWS - Ailbhe Mal­one

TRACK OF THE WEEK Har­ryStyles- Sig­noftheTimes A far cry from One Di­rec­tion, or the 1970s dadrock that the in­ter­net was whis­per­ing about, Sign of the Times is a bit “end cred­its of a film about adi­vorc­ing cou­ple who are now sad about love but maybe hope­ful too ?” Don’ t get us wrong, it’ s a grower, and Harry sounds great, with a Bowiehat-tip and a lovely string sec­tion. Our ver­dict: we’re qui­etly con­fi­dent, but are keep­ing our ears open for the fol­low-up track.

He roof the week is De mi Lo va to, who cel­e­brated five years of so­bri­ety re­cently. She wrote on Ins tag ram :“So many times, I wanted to re­lapse but sat on my hands and begged God to re­lieve the ob­ses­sion. I’ m so proud of my­self but I couldn’ t have done it with out my higher power (God), my­fam­ily, friends, and ev­ery­one else who sup­ported me. Feel­ing hum­bled and joy­ful to­day. Thank you guys for stick­ing by my side and be­liev­ing in me ”. Con­grat­u­la­tions. In fur­ther Harry Styles news, he told BBC Ra­dio 1 that Adele has been giv­ing him ad­vice. “I think she leads by ex­am­ple, she’s the big­gest, she’s amaz­ing she’ s the best so she should be the big­gest. The thing with her is she’ s a dif­fer­ent thing, she’ sjust good at it, I like how she does ev­ery­thing, it looks very nice… For my 21 st she gave me one of her al­bums 21 and said ‘I did some pretty cool stuff when I was 21, good­luck’ and I was like, geez.’”

Zero of the week are le­gal is­sues, ac­cord­ing to Vanessa The Satur­days. She told the BBC that her up­com­ing E Ph as been de­layed due to some prob­lems. “There were cer­tain songs I loved that I couldn’t use any more.So I’ ve ba­si­cally had to start again, which is why it’ s taken this long. The sil­ver lin­ing is it’ s given me some­thing to write about. I’ mina much bet­ter po­si­tion now, men­tally. I used to get so scared of go­ing in the stu­dio with peo­ple I didn’t know but now, you could put me any­where and I’ d be fine .”
