Styles surprises; Lovato stays clean
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 .”
